The World Trade Center once stood tall and prominent, one of the world’s largest financial complexes and a symbol of New York City. This New York City walking tour takes you around Ground Zero to explore both the past and future of the World Trade Center.
There are two options - a 2-hour guided tour of the Ground Zero site or a comprehensive 3-hour tour. Both tours include entry with your guide to the 9/11 Memorial, which opened on September 12, 2011.

Whichever option you choose, this tour offers an unforgettable experience as you hear stories of the heroes of 9/11 and how New York City rose from the ashes of tragedy to flourish once more.
