I am so glad I booked the walking tour for our trip to the 9/11 memorial. I have wanted to visit to show my respects for years. Today myself and my 16 year old daughter had the opportunity. From the moment we arrived, our tour guide Alice was amazing. Empathetically sharing details of sorrow, individual stories of brave fire fighters and information about how New Yorkers have shown solidarity and support. Thank you Alice, you have given us a wonderful memory to take away.
