Meet your guide at either St. Paul’s Chapel in the morning, or in front of the Stock Exchange for the extended tour, depending on which tour you select. Please note: You will not meet at the 9/11 Memorial or 9/11 Museum.

You'll visit St. Paul Chapel, New York City's oldest standing church. During the tragic days following the event, it served as a shelter for rescue workers to sleep and eat. The church experienced its own miracle on 9/11 when a fallen tree protected the building from the debris of the attacks. Take note of the iron fence on Broadway, which was plastered with missing posters of relatives.

Then, follow your guide to the 9/11 Memorial, where you’ll gain an understanding of the horrific events of 9/11. As you explore the site where the World Trade Center once stood, you’ll be captivated by real firsthand stories of 9/11 from your guide, who has a personal connection with that fateful day in New York City.

The 9/11 Memorial was built to honor the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. The names of every victim of the attack are inscribed in panels alongside twin reflecting pools, spanning nearly an acre with the largest man-made waterfalls in North America. You'll have until 6pm to explore the memorial on your own.

9/11 Museum Upgrade:
You can also upgrade to gain admission to the 9/11 Museum. Your guide will give a brief overview of what you can expect inside the museum, which opened in May 2014. The 9/11 Museum’s 110,000 square feet (10,219 square meters) of exhibition space is located within the archaeological heart of the World Trade Center site. The stories of the 1993 and 2001 bombings of the World Trade Center, and the people affected by the events, are told through multimedia displays, archives, narratives, and a collection of authentic artifacts. The monumental artifacts in the museum present the intimate stories of loss, compassion, reckoning, and recovery that are central to telling the story of the attacks and the aftermath.

Extended tour (3:15pm only):

This tour features additional background the Financial District which has been the target of other terrorist attacks from a recent plot to some as far back as 100 years ago. Your knowledgeable guide will lead you through Wall Street where you'll see such iconic sites as the New York Stock Exchange, Federal Hall and the Federal Reserve Bank. After your 1-hour walking tour, you'll transition to the Ground Zero portion featuring the 9/11 Memorial. Due to the route taken on this portion of the tour, it is not wheelchair accessible.

Tony was awesome. He made the tour come alive from his personal experiences on that horrific day. The tour was amazing, inspirational, emotional, sad. Actually we haven't come up with an appropriate word to describe it but we are so glad we traveled from New Jersey to take the tour. Bravo and we have recommended it to our friends and family already!
