“Visiting St Paul's Chapel and the 9/11 memorial park is a must do if in New York, a very sobering time. The park is a fabulous memorial to those who lost their lives so tragically. The guide was very knowledgeable about Manhattan and the events of 9/11. ...Karen O., New Zealand – See more reviews
What To Expect
You'll meet your guide within walking distance of the Ground Zero site, where you'll embark on a 2-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.
You'll explore surrounding New York sites including St Paul's Chapel, the American Express Eleven Tears Memorial, Winter Garden and, of course, the Ground Zero site. After relaying to you the stories of bravery that triumphed over tragedy that day, you'll be allowed entry for one hour to the 9/11 Memorial, built on the exact site where the twin towers once stood. Escorted by your guide, you will see 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 learn about the historic rebuilding taking place on the former World Trade Center site and uncover the Survivor Tree, which was nursed back to health after surviving the 9/11 attack. Admission to the memorial is timed, and you can spend up to one hour at this special place for remembrance and reflection.
