Meet your guide within walking distance of the Ground zero site, where you'll embark on a 2.5-hour journey into the bravery, passion, and tragedy of 9/11.

As you begin your tour at St Pauls Chapel, you'll explore surrounding New York sites such as the grave of Alexander Hamilton, the first US Treasury Secretary; the soaring towers of Wall Street and the Canyon of Heroes; The New York Stock Exchange and Federal Reserve Bank; Federal hall, where George Washington was sworn in as president; and the renowned Trinity church and its storied past. See the American Express Eleven Tears Memorial, Winter Garden and, of course, the Ground zero site. Your guide will take you to the 9/11 Memorial site, built on the exact site where the twin towers once stood. Visit the twin reflecting pools on which the names of the nearly 3,000 victims of the September 11, 2001, and February 26, 1993, atrocities are inscribed. You will have ample opportunity for reflection and contemplation and are welcome to bring flowers or tributes to place by the 9/11 Memorial site.

    Excellent guide. Told stories of individuals. Made it personal for us even though we live in Texas. My granddaughters were touched by stories even though they were not even born when it took place.

    Nice small group of only 5 of us. Our guide Fred was a helpful weath of knowledge. So informative and interesting. He was on the site when the attack happened Dan’s gave us some insight of his personal story. The tour and then the museum tour that followed was incredible. Really appreciate having this experience and i am thankful.

    This tour was not very informative and I regret wasting the time. spent on this tour when it could easily be done independently. The guide concentrated too much on Wall Street and not enough on the 911 memorial or World Trade Center. I was very disappointed. Do not waste your money, instead purchase a ticket to the museum and listen to the audio which is way more interesting! Would not recommend it.

    Good experience. Somber and beautiful all at once.

    We did this tour in 2012 when security was quite tight, we've returned this year 2017 and you can now walk round the memorial without going through security. Our tour guide was excellent and shared with us her experience of September 11th.
    Make sure you visit the American Express memorial on this tour, it's an amazingly touching memorial, which brought most of our tour to tears.

    My tour was changed from Thursday to Friday, due to no other bookings on the Thursday. The tour of the World Trade Center and American Express Building was very detailed and interesting. However, I understood that this tour was also to include the Financial District so I was disappointed that the tour ended after two hours 220 pm to 420 pm, except for those continuing on to the Optional Museum ticket. I questioned if we were supposed to visit the financial District and was pointed in that direction, if I wished to go there on my own. However, the portion of the tour that we did was excellent!

    Unfortunately, this tour was awful. The tour guide arrived late and was sloppily dressed in dirty pants, rumpled shirt. He acted strange, stopping at frequent intervals to pick up trash! He had very limited knowledge of the subject of the tour and often seemed to be distracted. When we asked a question, he either gave a nebulous answer, or looked it up on his cell phone, or asked a street vendor for the answer. I hesitate to give this tour even one star...we were very disappointed.

    Definitely go to the Museum. I would bypass the walking tour. It was lengthy and we did not see much or learn anything that was worth the money. If there was something you really wanted to see, do it on your own time. It could have been our guide as well. He didn't seem very interested in the information he was giving us on the spots we visited. I would have rather spent the time at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.

    Very touching and emotional. The tour make you go back in time and reflect on how awful this attack was.
    Debbie was a fantastic guide, and was able to make me cry with the stories she told
