Visit the World Trade Center starting at St. Paul's Chapel which stands just a block away from the site, yet somehow miraculously survived the September 11 attacks. You'll learn about its important role in the aftermath of the attacks, serving as the base of operations for rescue workers and volunteers in the months that followed. You'll also visit the 9/11 Memorial Plaza and have a moment to reflect beside the memorial pools.

Your knowledgeable guide will explain how everything you see has meaning, from the symbolic design of the memorial pools to the architecture of the new World Trade Center buildings which have a symbolic purpose thanks to the vision of the architects who made them part of the memorial it through the use of material, angles, light and reflection.  You'll also visit the Fireman's Memorial and the American Express 11 Tears Memorial, that many visitors miss on their own. 

Much has been done in the 15 plus years since the attacks of September 11th and you'll get an up-close look at the rebuild as your guide takes you through Brookfield Place, Fulton Center and The Oculus, a 4 billion dollar structure and centerpiece of the new World Trade Center transportation hub.  It also has a symbolic design which your guide will fully explain.  

On this visit you'll get a look at the World trade Center past and present and you'll see details that you wouldn't think to look for on your own making this the most in-depth and insightful visit to the World Trade Center that you could decide to make. 

The guided portion of the tour lasts approximately 2 hours. If you've chosen museum admission the average visit takes approximately 2 hours depending on your pace.  Museum visit is self guided, guide does not enter the museum with the group.

    The guide was pleasant and knowledgable, and we learned much, compared to walking around on our own. It was well worth the money spent. Being both in and outside added to the favorable impressions. Next year we'll see the museum and perhaps observation tower.

    This was an amazing and humbling tour to be part of. Our tour guide was ve4ry knowledgeable about the tour and knew the facts, he wasn't reading from a script. Learning about the entire area, things i wouldn't have if i just went to the site of the towers was mind boggling. I would definitely recommend this tour.

    I chose the Ground Zero Walking Tour along with the 9/11 Museum Visit. I chose the time of 3:00 to start the tour.Bad decision The person who lead the Ground Zero walking tour did show up on time, as indicated. However, he was so detailed that when we got to the Museum tour, the last guided tour had already started and they would not let us join the last tour. We walked around without details of what we were looking at. That was very disappointing. I know your company had no control of this situation, however, I thought you should know and perhaps have the museum eliminate the Optional Museum tour, or explain, there may not be a guide available at that time.

    I'm sure the tour itself is very good but we didn't get to go on it!? We arrived ok we were about 1 min late but the tour guide didn't even acknowledge us, we stood there for about 5 to 10 mins while he talked about the bell at the church to others then walked off so we just abandoned the idea and did our own thing! Shame but we felt we were ignored because we were a minute late.
