The tour from Doug is fantastic. Worth every penny. Doug is really polite and laid back and welcomes questions. He takes you to places you may not otherwise think of going to and tells you things you may not of otherwise known. He goes at your pace and tries to tailor the tour to you I.e. He had a fantastic knowledge of history of the WTC, the plans for the new ones, what happened on the day, the design and structure the list is endless and really hones in on what interests you. Could not recommended Doug highly enough. Thanks Doug.

I highly recommend this tour if you want a great experience of what happened on 9/11 and afterwards. I learned about how the community came together in the aftermath at St. Paul Church and the changes and growth since. We went through the memorial, surrounding buildings, and the new transit station. I went with a group of family members in ages 21-60. The feedback from all was that the tour was better than expected. It was a very thorough tour and we wouldn't have had the same experienced or knowledge of 9/11 if we did it on our own. Plan to wear comfortable shoes, you do a lot of walking. Well worth it.

Doug gave a very informative and thorough guided tour about the events of 9/11 and the rebuilding and regeneration of the world trader centre site. We were a mixed group and had pretty awful weather but Doug managed to hold our attention despite the cold. The memorial is far more moving than we expected, a quite lovely place to pay your respects and a complete success of a design too..truly beautiful. Do this tour, you won't regret it.

A group of five of us, on a very cold Saturday afternoon, joined Doug Fox for a tour not only of the 9/11 Memorial and St. Paul's Church, but the transportation hubs, Fireman's memorial and the American Express tribute to its' employees who died (one of my favorite parts of the tour). We would never have seen all of these things without Doug's tour. He was prompt and brought many visual aids which gave those of us not from New York, a great history of the site from the 30's right on up to today. Even though it was freezing, Doug never hurried us along, but it was great that he knew places indoors where you could get a good view of the area and he could continue with his sharing his wealth of information. We even had a great hot chocolate inside the American Express Building!! I highly recommend this tour- a very interesting way to experience a very emotional place. I enjoyed the VIP treatment bypassing the long line to get into the 9/11 Memorial because Doug gets passes ahead of time. Definitely well worth it!

Visiting New York for the first time we had to do the 9/11 Memorial whilst there. We were recommended Doug by a family member who had been before and done the tour, and all we were told rang true! Doug has extensive knowledge of the event the site and all the surrounding bits that you would easily miss or be unaware of. We would highly recommend doing this tour and using Doug to fully appreciate the site and make it a very memorable day. Thanks Doug!!
