Full description
Begin the tour by visiting two churches, St.Peter’s and St. Paul’s, both of which were key staging grounds for the rescue and recovery operations during the aftermath of September 11th. At St. Paul's see the famous fence that was turned into a spontaneous memorial to those that were lost.

As you visit various other memorials and sights affected by the attacks, including Ladder 10, the Bell of Hope, the Koenig Globe, and more, your guide will tell you stories about the humans behind the tragedy, some well known and some more personal.

The tour passes through the Reflection Pools that sit in the footprints of the old Twin Towers and affords great views of the One World Observatory. This tour ends at the Survivor Tree, a pear tree found in the rubble of the Twin Towers that was replanted and stands as a simple reminder of the resilience of life.
