New York City, like all cities around the world, draws its stories and strengths from the triumphs and tragedies that occur within its limits. On this touching tribute tour, go behind the headlines of the September 11th terrorist attacks to grant insight, understanding, and peace for those who were directly affected, the citizens of New York, and all those who found themselves at Ground Zero that sunny Tuesday morning in 2001.

Led by a local New York City licensed guide, embark on a two-hour walk through the places integral and spaces memorialized for the events of September 11th, 2001. This intimate tour begins on the steps of St. Peter's Church, where New Yorkers gathered for news of missing loved ones in the immediate aftermath of the attacks.

Visit St. Paul's Chapel, so close in proximity to the original World Trade Center every day as the sun headed west, this small church was encompassed by the shadows of the Twin Towers. Hear of the incredible support this small, historic place offered for the victims and their families as a round-the-clock relief station for a full 9-months after the tragedy. See the messages and offerings that arrived here from across the globe. Entering the space spread across 8-acres of the World Trade Centers former complex known as the 9/11 Memorial, pause before some of the most moving tributes including the FDNY Memorial Wall, the Survivor Tree, and the reflecting pools - arguably the most recognized element of the Memorial, each paying tribute to the almost 3,000 lives lost in connection to the site.

After some time visiting the exterior spaces, this tour builds in tickets to the 9/11 Memorial Museum where you can spend time on your own. With pre-reserved tickets you will bypass any line as it stretches around the block, gaining priority access. Prior to entrance, your guide will give you a good overview in order for you to make good use of your time and not miss any must-see exhibits. Due to the emotional nature of this museum, we let you take your time and experience this on your own.

We’ve kept our groups small to ensure a level of intimacy befitting such a visit, and have chosen only the best local guides to give your tour a personal touch, giving the 9/11 Memorial and its surroundings the humanity and reverence it deserves.
