This tour was fantastic and I found it to be one of the more important tours I've taken recently. The guide was extremely knowledgable having lived through 9/11 personally. Her authenticity in telling her story was very moving. She was very thorough in telling us about the symbolism of each place in and around the memorial- the thought that was put into the reconstruction. It was really good and the view from the top of One World Observatory is out of this world!

Great tour. It was very informative. The information was presented with pride and reverence by Tauren.
