Our tour guide, Rob, was excellent. Knowledgeable and very interested in what he was doing, not just doing a job. We loved his stories, the pictures he brought to enhance the details of the tour, and he answered all our questions. He was sensitive to guests who didn't move as fast, without making us feel different. Can't say enough good things about Rob!

Alice was exceptional. I almost feel guilty in mentioning her first when talking about a 9/11 based tour. However, she was all things kind, funny, knowledgeable, intuitive, and most of all - genuine. If she was faking her care for showing us all things 9/11, she deserves an acting award. But that’s just it, she was so real with her care and reverence for that awful day in history. And she was excited about the stories that sprang forth from it. We felt apart of that day because Alice blended us in to the stories and facts. Great tour!

The seriousness of this tragedy was downplayed. We felt there was so much that could and should have been shown and discussed but instead everything was downplayed and sugarcoated. We were disappointed and believe there was so much more that could have been shown and covered on this tour.
