  • I really enjoyed the “extra” stories Dave was able to provide about the people and places around ground zero. He was very knowledgeable and personable.

  • My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and it started our day at the World Trade Centre complex perfectly. Helene was a great host and at had us smiling in-between stories relating to the seriousness of the events of that day. She also explained about the symbolism of the reborn site. We would definitely recommend this tour highly. A thank you to Helene.
  • We (from the UK) did the walking tour and had Ray as our guide. It was an activity that we knew we wanted to do but given the topic we’re a bit apprehensive (especially as we flew homemade that night!) but it was an incredible journey. Ray was so informative and knowledgeable, he was very good at correctly telling the events that occurred before, during and after, helped massively by the fact he was a New Yorker born and bred so experienced it first hand, but it was also somewhat uplifting. Ray knew so much that you can read or google including first hand experiences and stories from lots of different points of views. I left with a much greater knowledge than I started with and it was a really eye opening experience. I would recommend this to anyone visiting New York as a must see!! Absolutely incredible
  • While I am confident this tour would have been informative regardless of the tour guide, Brian was phenomenal. He was personable, relatable, and engaged with his "little birds". He encouraged us to ask questions, no matter the content, and he did his best to provide us with information. The entire tour had a variety of stops, including the Oculus, the first station to respond, the tower sites, etc. He gave us information about the kinds of trees planted around the WTC site, and shared with the group that they share seeds of those trees with other cities who face disasters as a symbol of togetherness and rebirth. If possible, we would have been happy to have Brian take us on a whole tour of New York! Many thanks to Brian for making the start of our day in New York excellent.
  • This 9/11 tour was fantastic. Getting this information from a local New Yorker that experienced this firsthand was really valuable. We got to see the Oculus, the Eleven Tears memorial (not well known), the Survivor Tree, the memorials for the north and south tower, the cathedral. To be able to walk around where all of it happened and have someone point out past, present and future was truly amazing. We are forever grateful for Tim our tour guide.
  • Tour guide was excellent. He gave a personal insight to the events of this day and the weeks, months, years after 9/11. Highly recommend this tour.
