Why Travelers Choose This Tour
Departure & Return
Please meet your guide on the Broadway side of St. Paul's Chapel (between Fulton & Vesey Streets). They will be there 15 minutes before the tour start time and will be carrying an orange flag.
The tour ends at the 9/11 Memorial. If option is selected you will go into the museum after the tour and have as much time as you like to explore on your own.
What To Expect
Your guide is personally connected to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, and dives deep into the events of that day so you can gain a better understanding.
Your tour starts at the chapel, which was a safe place where rescue workers could eat and sleep in between missions.
Move along to see the exact spot where the World Trade Center once stood, and take in views of the memorial itself. If you’ve upgraded to get a 9/11 Museum ticket, your guide takes you there, too.
Your tour either ends at the 9/11 Memorial or at the 9/11 Museum if you've upgraded. Stay and explore the memorial when your tour finishes.
