What people are saying about One World Trade Center

Saved a lot of time as there was a long line for tickets.

9/11 Museum is amazing and sobering tribute to the heroes of that fateful day. With this app we had no issues getting admission quickly.

Abby was sensational! We could not have had a more heartfelt person!

Abby, our guide, lived through 9/11 less than a mile from ground zero! She shared her feelings on that horrific day and we felt her experience with her as she described everything that happened that day. Tears don’t lie! Abby was articulate and was a real “artist” in every description! We could not have had a better guid!

The guide was great and the whole tour was better then I had hoped for

The information the guide, Nick H., was well delivered with a repsect to the locations we covered. The information, timing, and coordination all went smooth. I would recommend this tour and Nick H to my friends.

So informative and personal! A must-do when visiting NYC!

Elizabeth was a fantastic guide! Very knowledgeable and added her own personal stories from 9/11 to the tour. Highly recommend this kind of tour for all ages to learn a lot about the complex dedicated to remembering 9/11.

Tour of 9/11 Memorial and One World Observatory Ticket Reviewed by a GetYourGuide customer, 08/26/2018

Excellent guide (Ibeth) gave a great tour. Needs a bonus!

The personal touch and details given were exceptional. Ibeth could not have been more expressive or enthusiastic about her job, of which you knew she was “all in”. Though the topic was somber she managed to inject humor when appropriate, and was sincere in her solace when tears were shed. I can now check this visit to the 9/11 Memorial off my bucket list, but will forever remember the info learned and the emotion felt while viewing the aftermath of the worst terror attack in my lifetime.
