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.

Had a nice tour with Rob. Very informative on the history of the properties and what’s to come. He also added some personal stories which made the experience more real for someone who watched the tv rather than being there. The museum is a must to realize and remember.

I thought the guided tour was in the museum. It was an outside tour. Very cold. Not a small group. Hard to hear the guide at times. Some misinformation. I had told the person I purchased tickets from that we had Broadwaytickets that night. I thought the tour was inside the museum with extra time to spend on our own. Wrong,

Despite the frigid cold, blustery weather in NYC, KCristin's 9/11 input was well received by my great nephew and me! Doing this on our own would have been lacking incite, personalism and history.We would also have missed certain locations important to 9/11. This is the second viator tour I have taken. The first was in Lisbon, Portugal. No doubt, I would search for same company elsewhere in my adventures.

This was definitely one of our favorite but yet very sad tours we did during our 5 days in NYC. Our tour guide was amazing. She was a native of NY and had a lot of connections to this tragedy. The tour started at St. Peter's Church and continued around the block where she described what happen that day. I would suggest that everyone take this tour before touring the museum.

The tour itself was very moving - the guide appeared to be very knowledgeable. I say appeared because unless one was standing directly in front of her, most of the time we could not hear what she was saying. She wore no microphone and spoke very fast. Apparently the company she works for does not provide them - a big fault! The museum and memorial were a very sobering and moving experience. Being with a smaller group is a definite advantage..

Amanda, the tour guide, did an excellent job. I would highly recommend this tour. Many more hours could have been spent in the museum

We enjoyed the tour and appreciated all the personal stories from the guide about his own experience as a long time NY resident.
We all saw it on Television but hearing the stories we did not see was quite emotional. Made me feel our country is in much better shape than the media would have us believe.

I was severely hampered by a heel spur. The guide made no attempt to take into account my limited mobility. We eventually gave up.

A real bummer.
