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.

My oldest grandson did not want to go to the 9/11 Memorial because it was too sad. I finally convinced him to go and he was so glad he did. He didn't know what to expect but once there we had a hard time getting him to leave! I was very pleased with his reaction.

Everyone, even locals, should take the walking tour of the 911 Memorial. There is so much precious information about the memorial that will enhance the experience.

The tour was great, just the right amount of time. Michelle, the tour guide was very knowledgeable. She kept us on track, allowing us to stop and take pictures or just observe as needed. I would take this tour again in a heartbeat.

Don't think I would have done the walking tour. The museum was self explanatory plus they had the audio guide that you could have used. Wasn't impressed that much with the walking tour probably because it was hot and humid and not very comfortable.

I enjoyed this tour it was amazing! could have probably done without the museum as i think the tour itself was very informative. My tour guide was amazing he was able to add his own personal experience of the Sept 11 attacks so it was great.

I enjoyed this tour! could've probably done without the museum as i think the tour itself was informative on its own. I can't remember the name of my tour guide but he was very knowledgeable about the Sept 11 and was able to share his own personal experience to the tour.

As sad as this experience of touring the 9/11 memorial was for our group, the memorial was a respectful display of American lives that should not be forgotten.
