We had a great experience on this tour thanks to our tour guide Alice. This is such a touching tour that it takes someone so talented like Alice to really tell the story and move you so deeply even if you don’t know much about 911 (like our children). Thank you for everything Alice!

We had an amazing experience thanks to our tour guide Alice. She is very passionate about what she does and described the 911 event with such a respect;, her description and details were so moving. Even if you don’t know much about 911 like our children, they felt through her description what the city went through very deeply, that in my opinion can only be felt because of her great and unique talent of telling the story. We feel really lucky to have had Alice as a guide! Thank you so much for everything!

Truth be told, we missed the tour! However, we managed to connect with our tour guide at the end. Must have been some find of miracle! Alice was able to give us our priority tickets to enter the One World Observatory. If we had not met up and had the opportunity to talk to Alice, we would have missed some very special sites. I am very grateful that Alice was excited to connect and willing to take a few minutes to recommend sites from the given tour. Please share with her that we did indeed find those places and we appreciate her!

You want Sara as your tour guide! The way she presents the history laced with hope is admirable. It was an honor to have her as our tour guide!
