  • The memorial was very neat to see. There were no tours and the museum was not open to go in because of the covid situation going on right now but we were able to walk around the grounds and see the...  more »
  • You can find the site near the southern part of Manhattan island; to get inside you'll need to pass through security including things like metal detectors. Once you pass through that you'll be in a...  more »
  • We paid for the tour but didn't know what to expect. Was initially confused because we went to a shopping centre however the actual tour (Outside was informative). The tour does allow you to miss the....  more »

  • WE LOVE HAL!! He gave such a knowledgeable, informative, and emotional tour of the 9/11 grounds and lower Manhattan. He was personable, funny, and his love for New York was truly on display. I absolutely recommend doing a tour of the 9/11 grounds, museum, Oculus, and the observation deck. It was so impactful. If you have the opportunity to tour with Hal, you will absolutely be in good hands.
  • Our whole group talked throughout the weekend about how great Jon White (our guide) was in providing first hand experiences and powerful storytelling of how things unfolded on 9/11, the devastation, the loss, the recovery and the very insightful knowledge of the thinking behind the whole redevelopment of the siteā€¦this was one of the highlights of our trip to NYC and it was fantastic to see how NYC has bounced back, respectfully, stronger and celebrating life! Jon did an amazing job and we were all delighted that he was our guide, what a genuinely great guy and superb ambassador for New York The museum far exceeded expectations, so respectfully and thoughtfully done, so many powerful images and to track the minute-by-minute timeline made the whole thing even more real. You should allow plenty of time in the museum as the hours fly by...we spent about 4 1/2 hours (tour and museum) in total and could have taken longer...but very well worth it. Thanks Jon and NYC!
  • My wife and I took the tour over the valentines day weekend and it was a great experience. Nick was out tour guide and he was very well spoken. He was also very passionate about 9/11. The tour took about an hour and a half and then we did the museum and One World Trade. The total time was about 5-6 hours. So this takes about a full day. The Brooklyn Bridge is real close so you could do both in one day.
  • The tour was amazing! Our guide Rob made it even more memorable and interesting with his personal experience during the tragedy. Would recommend it highly to anyone.
  • Our guide, Damaras Obi was exceptional. She has a very personal connection to 9/11 which makes the tour particularly moving and informative. I highly recommend her. Ana Alicia Ortiz
