Jim! Many thanks to GetYourGuide for hitting every mark on an experience like no other. If you want facts, figures, and historical context delivered by New York's #1 Guide service, book this tour. Yes, our tour guide was that good. Our experience was on-time to the minute (military precision without the drill sergeant) delivered by a personal, passionate, caring group leader. This most valuable use of time connects sights with engaging stories to better understand all that is around is in and near the 9/11 Memorial. Thank you GetYourGuide for easing the process to book and enjoy an epic New York experience; you did not disappoint. Jim - our family is grateful for your good nature, humility, and attempts at humor (wait, you really are funny). Simply stated, you're the best! Many sincere thanks, Jersey travelers with family first-timers in tow.

Jim was a GREAT guide! He shared such wonderful perspectives, as well as personal experience about this terrible tragedy. The tour and Jim’s commentary also reinforced the resilience and resolve of New Yorkers to rebuild and create a moving memorial site to honor the victims.

Jim also provided some very interesting history of New York’s founding, along with humor at the appropriate times.

I would definitely recommend this tour!

My only suggestion is that you bring cash to tip. Jim doesn’t do Venmo and I didn’t have any cash to provide him a tip to thank him with a liitle financial gratitude.

My 14 year-old daughter and I took a tour with Debbie Mason, and she was absolutely phenomenal. Such incredible knowledge about the history of NYC, especially the events of 9/11. And she was extremely generous with sharing personal, and painful stories about the 9/11 tragedy. This, combined with her sense of humor, made for a really valuable, memorable, and informative tour. My daughter and I both learned so much in the two short hours, and could have followed Debbie around the city all day with her knowledge, heart, and humor.

This was a tour given by Marc Landrum. He had us feel like we were all New Yorkers who had lived through that awful day. The impact on the rescue workers, especially the fire department personnel, was devastating. He really made us feel as though we were walking on sacred ground when we were viewing the memorial reflecting pool and the trees. He also told us of the resilience of New Yorkers and the tribute that they created for those that perished. Great tour!

Our tour guide was Debbie and she did a amazing job. She did a great job showing us around and all though it was raining she did her best to keep us out as much as possible while still providing us with a great and moving stories. Her knowledge about the city and the history is stunning.

Very well recommended !!

Jim was our tour guide for the Memorial and Ground Zero Walking Tour. If he would have pulled down his mask and been Larry David, I wouldn't have been surprised. He was very thorough, good sense of humor, kept our small group engaged and was careful to be mindful of the time.

Great tour, highly informative and interesting. Jim was our guide and he was thoughtful and gave us insight and information in a way that made the experience highly memorable and meaningful. We could not have understood the full historical significance of everything we saw without the tour. Jim was also funny and personable. Highly recommended!

The tour guide!

We have 38 entry stamps in our passports, and nearly always used local guides for some or all of the trip. Our NYC guide, Debbie Mason, was one of the best we have ever encountered. She was more than knowledgeable, she spoke from the heart...which is understandable given that she had a direct loss on from that tragedy. She's also a terrific photographer (I dabble in photography so I can appreciate a pro).

I am a born and bred New Yorker and watched the Towers go up, and visited the buildings a few times when I worked in the Wall Street area. I also watched the Towers come down, so this trip (from California) was incredibly meaningful. The memorial is a touchstone everyone should visit, and I hope they have a guide like Debbie.

Our tour guide, Jim, was excellent. Very knowledgeable. Gave us a ton of information on our 2 hour tour. As a native New Yorker, he took great pride in making sure all of his information was up-to-date and accurate. Highly recommend asking for Jim if you sign up for this tour.
