What You Can Expect

Small-Group Guided 9/11 Memorial Tour with Museum Tickets

9/11 Memorial Pool

Meet up with your guide in the afternoon at a location near Ground Zero provided by your host. You’ll spend the rest of your excursion exploring the key landmarks, people and places associated with that fateful day in September 2001.

First take a look at St. Paul’s Chapel, a religious site that became a key meeting point for friends and families searching for news about their loved ones after the attack. The moving collection of handmade memorials and prayers still populate the interior of the chapel to this day. Continue to Brookfield Place (formerly World Financial Center) to get a sense for the financial costs of the attack and ongoing efforts to rebuild.

Follow your stop by heading to the Eleven Tears Memorial, a tribute to the 11 employees of American Express that perished in the attacks. Just nearby you’ll get a look at the Winter Garden, a site frequently missed by Ground Zero visitors. Continue from there to the 9/11 Memorial Pools, a sober fountain monument with the names of the victims that’s built into the “footprint” of the former Twin Towers. Add more context to your trip by proceeding to the “Survivor Tree” and the Fireman’s Memorial, offering a more intimate look at how New York City locals were impacted by the attack.

Make the final stop of the day at the 9/11 Museum, where you’ll have an included pre-reserved admission ticket to skip the long lines. Enjoy a self-guided exploration of this fascinating museum, displaying artifacts salvaged from the wreckage along with the moving stories told by the victims of this tragic event. You’ll finish your trip at the museum at 5pm.

Great walking tour and history. It was a rainy day, but grateful for the experience and knowledge of our tour guide. Love the small group. Touring the museum at our own pace was good as we spent 3 hours there and didn't feel rushed.

Our guide Sandy was really great and so knowledgeable about the history of the area and also 9/11. We enjoyed being in a small group because we could hear and ask questions.

This trip was amazing! It exceeded out expectations. We knew that there were a couple of stops where we would get off the bus to look, but had no idea the scope of what we would see. Our tour guide Jay was so knowledgeable that there was nothing missed. This was done our first day in NYC and it was great to know if there was anything to go back to explore further. We couldn't have been happier!

Considering that he wasn't in NYC on 9-11, the young man who did the tour was fairly knowledgeable and efficiently moved us from place to place leading up to the actual museum where he bid us farewell. Because he didn't experience the event or aftermath, the narration lacked a bit of emotion or a sense of the gravity and the response of the city. Only glitch was that he was not at the meeting place indicated on our instructions where we and other folks were waiting. No problem, we got a call from tour operator directing us to him on other side of building. The tour was informative and did allow us to see things we would otherwise have missed.
