  • 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

  • Great way to learn more about this tragic event. Highly recommend getting the tour before exploring on your own.

  • You didn't show up... We were stranded at the appointed start and meet location... You would not return our fee of 118.00 each 2 X 118 230

  • Our tour guideAnn Desmond was excellent in providing us information about the 911 disaster and what has transpired since that date. She gave the timeline as to what happened on that day. She was in the area and had firsthand knowledge of the tragedy. I would recommend Ann Desmond as a tour guide for any tour you offer.

  • Beautifully constructed with much thought put behind it. I loved the tree that survived and the Memorial with the names and the lovely fountain is amazing. The constructed DOVE is breathtaking and so meaningful. It all ties together beautifully. The entire area far exceeded our expectations!

  • I have filled this out previously but will try again as my computer keeps sending this request to me. I was VERY impressed with your Tour and your Tourguide, Annie Desmond. I especially enjoyed being in a small group and having Annie tell us about her personal experiences.
