This was a touching tour of Ground Zero. Being a native New Yorker, I’m surprised that I still learn a lot about the events of 911. Our guide, Brendan, was extremely knowledgeable and respectful of the sacrifices made on the fateful day. He used large posters to help with his narration. It was a very cold day and I was glad most of this tour was done indoors. I highly recommend this tour for locals or visitors.

Our guide Andrew, highlighted the heroics of first responders during September 11th. We were extremely moved by these rescuers’ selfless acts. He used oversized pictures to narrate this historic event. One should definitely book this tour with Andrew.

I brought my family to NY to take this tour after having done the walking tour last year. I was completely disappointed, the guide was a very nice person but he was really lacking on information on most things from 9/11. I came to find out that this was a different company and was beginning to be concerned that we were being conned. He was unsure of the number of people that died, didn't mention much about the chapel or the FDNY 10 or much of value - to the point that I started asking him questions that we learned from a previous tour and he said I didn't have time to Google it. I told him to do his research because other tours might want to know. I would not recommend this tour to anyone, I am just sad that I couldn't access my old bookings from my phone because I would have booked the right tour.

Frank is an amazing tour guide. Very passionate regard every thing related to 911.Ours was basically a private tour, only 2 other persons join us. Very informative and very emotional. Will recommend this tour, specially to families with children that did not witness this tragic events or were to young to remember.

Frank was our tour guide and clearly puts his heart and soul into this tour! We really enjoyed his approach to the tour he told a story and was not just stating facts and the photos he shared from that day 9/11 were amazing. The focus on the firefighters and their journey was emotional, educational and impressive! We highly recommended this tour! Enjoy! Cheers from Boston!

I have been on a few walking tours around the nation before, but nothing as unique as this. My tour guide Frank had these big posters he used to help tell the amazing story about the Dragon Fighters and the Survivors of 9/11. He depicts his story quite well and gives quite a story about how he lost some of his friends during 9/11.

First off, it was an icy winter day but Frank our tour guide took us on the most fabulous and knowledgeable walking tour of the 911 memorial and surrounding area. Frank has his heart in this tour and the highest respect for the heroes, survivors and survivor families as he passionately tells the story of that tragic day in history. He was considerate enough to alter parts of the tour to indoors due to the cold weather. Spectular views and true facts await you on this lively tour. A definite must do!

We booked for our group including 5 teens as we wanted a personalized experience. Our local guide, Frank was amazing. His emotion-filled stories including loss of two best friends and photographs added so much meaning and hope. We highly recommend this tour that follows 6 firefighters on 9/11. POWERFUL!
