In remembrance of 9/11, this walking tour guides you through the former World Trade Center in New York, where the tragic events of 9/11 took place. The tour is guided by New Yorkers who have a personal connection to 9/11. You will hear their personal stories and the touching stories of tragedy and heroism of many other everyday citizens.

The tour will start at St. Paul’s Chapel, the oldest public building in NYC still in continuous use. This church miraculously survived the falling building and debris from the 9/11 attacks despite it being only 1 block away. It became a makeshift rescue center during the aftermath and its iron fence became a bulletin board where family members posted notices of their missing loved ones. Today, with the mementoes received from people around the world supporting New York City, the church serves as a tribute. Next, hear the heroic stories of the emergency responders at the Firefighter’s 9/11 Memorial Wall, and see the Engine and Ladder Company 10/10, the fire station at Ground Zero.

Finally you’ll enter the 9/11 Memorial, where you can pay your respects to those who lost their lives in the World Trade Center. See the Reflecting Absence Memorial, the largest man-made waterfall inside the 9/11 Memorial, symbolizing the vast void left by the tragedy. Learn how the names of the nearly 3,000 victims are placed around the waterfall next to their friends, family members, colleagues. See the new Freedom Towers and World Trade Center rise from the ground. You can stay as long as you wish in this beautiful 8 acre green city oasis.

Our guide will provide you with timed entry tickets to minimize wait times. The museum entry times are approximately 12:30pm for the morning tour and 4:00pm for the afternoon tour, but can vary depending on availability for that day. The guide will give you a preview of the museum and what to expect so you can optimize your time spend inside the museum and not miss seeing things important to you. The Museum visit will be unguided and to be enjoyed at your own pace.

The 9/11 Museum contains artifacts from the events of 9/11. You’ll be able to hear recordings from people who were there that day.

Sad but inspiring

(Reviewed on 2/21/2015) -

"The thing I loved the most about this tour is being able to talk to the people who are personally connected to 9/11. The guides were people who have experienced the pain of loss and so the tour is really sad and heartbreaking. But it’s also inspiring, because despite what they went through, they’re still strong and fighting for life. "

In loving memory
