Full description
Explore the tragic events of 11 September 2001 from a local perspective on a 2-hour tour of all the sites of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan. Visit Ground Zero to get a deeper understanding of how 9/11 impacted the city and the world, and the long struggle New York went through to move forward.

Tour in small groups for a level of intimacy and peace fitting for such a visit. Local guides provide a more personal feel, giving the 9/11 Memorial and its surrounds a human context.

Meet at St. Peter’s Church to learn how people gathered there awaiting news of their loved ones, and to mourn, pray and offer support. See poignant handmade memorials that are a constant reminder that 9/11 was a crippling personal tragedy for thousands of New Yorkers, as well as a global event.

Next go to Ground Zero to see the stunning 9/11 Memorial Pools, built in the footprint of the twin towers. Read the inscriptions of all the names of those who perished there. Your guide will give a more personal account of the tragedy, taking you to Fireman’s Memorial and the Survivor Tree. Hear incredible stories of courage and loss that unfolded right where you stand.

End with a self-guided tour of the 9/11 Museum with a pre-reserved ticket which provides space for your own thoughts as you look at items salvaged from the wreckage, and read harrowing personal stories.
