Highly recommend this tour!

Very straightforward the instructions meet outside the front of Church. Our Tour guide, sadly whose name I can't recall, Annie?? A 490 yrs younger Joan Rivers, before Surgery took an ugly turn! Our lovely guide who wore killer heels, you read right! Gave us an informative, passionate detailed account of 9/11. Detailing the historical founding of Manhattan to present day. She kept the younger audience interested also. She gave tourist advice on tipping, what's a reasonable price to pay for bottled water, where to eat, which trains to take back to our destination after the 3hr tour, it went quickly!!!!

An incredible help in understanding the time period and activities

Annie was a terrific tour guide and this comes from a high school drama teacher. She was knowledgeable, able and willing to answer questions, had great information and her personal narratives were sobering. I loved the places she took us and her timing was impeccable. It was well worth the money and time!

Interesting visit

Interesting tour with lots of information and smaller places and places that you might otherwise have paid less attention to. In the end was the tour of the Ground Zero Memorial. Nice and competent leadership. However, everything in English. Basic knowledge of English is therefore necessary (but also sufficient) to understand the information. We can recommend the tour.
