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. Your guide will share key facts, illuminating events and heartbreaking stories of the tragic day while weaving through the various attractions within the World Trade Center area.
As you begin your tour at St Paul’s 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.

Our guide was living and working in New York at the time of 9/11 and his commentary was so interesting. Wish I could remember his name. Just going and seeing the Memorial or the museum without his insight would be a shallow shame.

Our Tour Guide was a lady called Annie who was, at the time of the attack, working in the Financial District. She was excellent. Very informative and a lovely person.
