This was a wonderful tour that captured so many aspects of the tragic day in powerful ways. Kevin, our tour guide, was the best! His personal experiences coupled with his vast knowledge made the tour both emotional and informative. I highly recommend this tour- just be sure to silence your phone the night before so you don't hear the 4 AM reminder text!

Rob was a likeable and kind person. More of the tour was unexpectedly spent around sites away from the World Trade Center with random stories. Felt more like a short history of Manhattan with anecdotal stories of Robs conversations with people. It was fine, just slightly different than expected.

The tour was very informative and the guide Rob did a great job of explaining other background facts about NYC and tactfully covering 9/11 events.

Our young family had a great time with Rob. He gave both factual and personal information on the events of 9-11 and tailored a bit for our kids ( ages 8 and 11). We havent been back to NYC in 6-7 years and still the tour was informative! Would definitely recommend for first timers as well. By the way, our 11 year old son said it was his favorite part of our NYC visit!

Really great tour and very emotional. Rob was an excellent tour guy and was very knowledgeable. He also was very funny and seems to be very passionate about NYC and 9/11. Overall, cannot recommend this enough.
