Amazing of course and moving - especially so with reflecting pools - though why people take grinning selfies in front of them is a mystery, We went for the last part of the day to avoid big queues - but be warned - they don't sell tickets after 6. We arrived @ 6.04 told we couldn't go in - eventually... More

Our tour guide Jason was fantastic; the tour is very comprehensive and focuses on telling the stories of individuals, providing the story behind the victims and heroes. Highly recommended if you plan on visiting the memorial.

This wasn't a 'fun' tour but is definitely worthwhile. It's an incredibly moving guided tour around the 9/11 site of the original twin towers. Our tour was led by two guides, both of whom have been affected personally by the events of 9/11. It was incredibly emotional starting off the tour in the 9/11 tribute centre reading the accounts of... More

Our guide John witnessed the events of 9/11. Starting just outside the church used by firefighters and first responders to rest and contemplate what was going on that day John took the time to explain his envolment as the day's events unfolded. From his first seeing the tower gushing smoke while crossing the Brokklyn Bridge on his way to work... More

This tour is a tribute to the dead and the tragedy of the century on Sept.11, 2001.. It's also a 'thank you 'to all those courageous and brave that day who assisted with the injured without fear for themselves. The museum is an outstanding tribute which is done with recovery items big and small.. There are videos to watch and... More

Although we knew much of the event, it was quite different having it explained as you stood in the areas and saw pictures provided by our guide, Thomas. Not only was he informative, animated and entertaining, but he also supplied a personal and touching connection of his firsthand experience of being nearby when it all occurred. I highly recommend spending... More

We booked this tour through viator before we went to NY and were so glad we had.

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
