What You Can Expect

9/11 Memorial and Ground Zero Walking Tour with Optional 9/11 Museum Upgrade

9/11 Memorial

This Ground Zero walking tour begins at St Paul's Chapel, aka the Little Chapel That Stood. St Paul’s is the oldest public building in New York City that’s still actively used. This church somehow survived the falling debris from the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center despite being only one block away from the melee. It became a kind of rescue center during the aftermath of the tragedy, and the iron fence that surrounds it became a place for family members to post notices about their missing loved ones.

As the tour continues, walk to the FDNY Memorial Wall and FDNY Ten House. Hear the heroic stories about the emergency responders on that day and see the fire station at Ground Zero.

Finally, enter the National September 11 Memorial, aka the 9/11 Memorial, a tribute of remembrance and honor to the almost 3,000 people who were killed on 9/11 — at the World Trade Center site, in the plane crash near Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon — as well as the six people who were killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993.

There are twin reflecting pools at the very spots where the Twin Towers once stood. Look up and see One World Trade Center’s Freedom Tower.

There is an optional upgrade to include entry into the National September 11 Museum — 110,000 square feet of exhibit space located at the heart of the World Trade Center site. The museum tells the story of 9/11 through multimedia displays, archives, narratives and a collection of artifacts. The lives of every victim of the 2001 and 1993 attacks are commemorated here.

We drew the lucky assignment of having John as our tour guide. I could write a page of adjectives describing his narrative and professionalism on the tour, but I will just say John was the BEST.

The walking tour was fascinating, our guide was born and raised NY and worked in the towers. His story was amazing to hear though so sad. My only complaint was he went into to much detail about the engineering of the towers which was hard to follow at times. The museum is amazing and surreal. The room with the pictures of the survivors brought us to tears. A MUST do if ever in NY!
