9/11 Ground Zero Tour

This is the principal memorial commemorating the 9/11 attacks of 2001 and 1993 WTC bombing. It is located at the site of the former Twin Towers that were destroyed. The 9/11 Memorial features two enormous waterfalls and reflecting pools, each about an acre in size, set within the footprints of the original twin towers. The Memorial Plaza is one of the most eco-friendly plazas ever constructed.

Testimonials

Jodi K. Mission (California)
"We really enjoyed our tour. I thought that the guide handled the subject matter with sensitivity while being very informative and giving context to sights in the area. Even we had toured the area by ourselves in the past, the guide showed us things we wouldn’t have ever found on our own. Highly recommended!"
Helen D (United Kingdom)
"A reflective, yet not too sombre tour of Ground Zero and the surrounding area with our friendly and knowledgeable guide Nathalie who not only gave an account of the events of 9/11 but also put it into the context of the past, present and future of the WTC. The highlight was the visit to St. Paul’s Chapel where rest and relief was given to the first responders in the days and weeks afterwards and which still bears a memorial altar to some of those who died and messages of support from all over the world"
Krysten R. (California)
"Hearing [the guide’s] personal experience on 9/11 really added to the impact of the tour. He had interesting stories and facts to tell us along the way and I feel we got a different perspective than just going thru the memorial. The guide is an interesting guy with a great personality. I recommend this tour to everyone!"
Chris Y. (Atlanta)
"My wife and I were very pleased with the tour. Rob was a great guide and gave you a very unique perspective on the day itself, the history of the area and the future plans. It was very evident that he was passionate about the subject and I personally appreciated his candor given his experience on that day. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting NYC. The museum (not part of the tour) was also very informative and very moving."
