We visited the 9/11 Tribute Centre and Walking Tour during our visit to NY in May. We were unable to obtain tickets for the newly opened larger museum but in hindsight, spending an hour with our two guides gave us a much deeper and personal insight into those tragic events. The Centre itself has many moving images, exhibits and audio... More

we did this tour earlier this year (Feb,2014) I don't think there can be many people in the world who don't know about 9/11 and what happened in and around New York on that day. we could of just paid a minimal fee/donation to walk around the 9/11 grounds, well I can honestly say it was well, well worth the...

This was the best tour we've did in NY! It was really emotional and speeking or listening to the guides was awesome. The stories they told brought me to tears. I absolutely recommend the 9/11 Memorial Tour to everyone who is interested in the "real" story of NY and of 9/11.

The tour was wonderful. We had a guide who was a history major and really knew the material and context. The memorial is moving and all artifacts are treated as if they were valued museum pieces with appropriate displays and lighting. The museum was quite full, which was a negative, and lines for the kiosks and tickets were not clearly... More

This is advertised as a WTC and 9/11 Memorial Tour but the 9/11 "tour" consisted of being told a little bit about it and then being directed on how to walk to it and look around yourself. The guide said he was pretty much covering everything and he was not allowed to bring "big groups" into the Memorial area. (We... More

Our tour was led by Anthony, a friendly gentleman who helped massively with the clean-up after the 9/11 attacks & gave us a unique & thought-provoking insight into 9/11 & the aftermath. The tour starts at the WTC Tribute Centre & we had a look around inside as we were a bit early. This is really interesting & there are... More

This was one of the highlights of our recent visit to New York. Our tour guides were Doug and Gerry. They were simply amazing. Doug worked for the Port Authority and Gerry was in tower one when this tragic event happened. The 9/11 memorial is so beautiful and very peaceful. The two men spoke openly and honestly about their experiences.... More

We booked our tours via Viator and we got Debbie as our guide. I was able to see the Twin Towers when I was just around 10 years old (which was like 18 years ago). Seeing the same location where the towers stood felt different. Amidst the terrible weather, Debbie made sure that we get the best tour about 9/11.... More

Absolutely loved this tour, my favorite tour so far. It was extremely emotional and touching. Our tour guide was a woman who lived one block away from the twin towers collapsed, and her story was so touching and real. Made me think of all those people who lived around that area and how heavily the whole 9/11 effected their lives.

We booked the tour (easy process online) and had Jim as our guide, along with a firefighter who also spoke to us. Jim had been working in an office on the 60th floor, and it was captivating to hear him talk while sitting where the buildings actually were. Just a little quibble, but nothing to do with the guide:There was... More
