What people are saying about One World Trade Center

Our guide Nick really made it real experience and he was really great.

I would highly recommend Nick as a tour guide. His presentation and personal experiences were truly felt by the whole group. Excellent tour and guide.

Got ahead of an hour long line, worth it

Downloaded and purchased tickets via the app while standing outside the ticket line that was an hour long. Quick purchase and in the doors we went. Will definitely use this again.

Great, got tickets on-line, went right to the line to get in 1WTC.

Our first trip to the top of Freedom Tower. Had a great time. Weather real foggy in the morning we were skeptical, but by 4:00 PM our time slot, fog had lifted and the view was awesome. Even had lunch there. Food good but pricey like everything in NY City.

Skip the line tickets were so valuable to me to see as much as I could

I had no idea how amazingly realistic and emotional the 9/11 museum was. Definately worth multiple visits and next time i would like to go up the "history of NY" elevator

This tour was emotional and enlightening to me.

Ray, our walking tour guide was excellent. He was there on 9/11. The museum was like being in church. The trip to the observatory on One World Trade was beautiful and we looked down from the top trying to imagine what people felt before they jumped.
