Description

Remember the terrible events of 11 September 2001 on a 9/11 walking tour and journey through the former World Trade Center in New York. Guided by New Yorkers with a personal connection to 9/11, the tour includes personal anecdotes and touching stories of tragedy and heroism. Meet at St. Paul's Chapel to see the church that miraculously survived the falling buildings and debris, despite being only a block away from the World Trade Center. Learn how it became a makeshift rescue center and its iron fence a bulletin board. Hear heroic stories of the emergency responders at the Firefighter's 9/11 Memorial Wall, and see the Engine and Ladder Company 10/10, the fire station at Ground Zero. Enter the 9/11 Memorial and see the Reflecting Absence Memorial, a man-made waterfall symbolizing the vast void left by the tragedy. Look at the names of the nearly 3,000 victims placed around the waterfall next to their friends, family members, and colleagues. See the new Freedom Towers and World Trade Center rising from the ground. Stay as long as you wish at this beautiful 8-acre oasis. Make use of timed entry tickets at the 9/11 Museum and One World Observatory. Once inside, you are free to explore at your own pace as your guide will not accompany you here. See artifacts from the events of 9/11, and hear recordings from people who were there on the day. Take a stroll to the Observatory to marvel at its engineering and architecture. Head to the lobby of Freedom Tower for the 'Voices' documentary dedicated to the men and women of the World Trade Center. Then take the 'Sky Pod' elevator, and ascend 1,250 feet in 60 seconds. Once there, see the See Forever Theater on floor 102, before accessing the main observation deck on the 100th. Enjoy immersive LED displays, interactive touchscreen videos, and dining options, as well as the view of the iconic Manhattan skyline.
