    What to Expect
    This Ground Zero walking tour begins at St Paul's Chapel, aka the Little Chapel That Stood. St Paul’s is the oldest public building in New York City that’s still actively used. This church somehow survived the falling debris from the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center despite being only one block away from the melee. It became a kind of rescue center during the aftermath of the tragedy, and the iron fence that surrounds it became a place for family members to post notices about their missing loved ones.

    As the tour continues, walk to the FDNY Memorial Wall and FDNY Ten House. Hear the heroic stories about the emergency responders on that day and see the fire station at Ground Zero.

    Finally, enter the National September 11 Memorial, aka the 9/11 Memorial, a tribute of remembrance and honor to the almost 3,000 people who were killed on 9/11 — at the World Trade Center site, in the plane crash near Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon — as well as the six people who were killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993.

    There are twin reflecting pools at the very spots where the Twin Towers once stood. Look up and see One World Trade Center’s Freedom Tower.

    There is an optional upgrade to include entry into the National September 11 Museum — 110,000 square feet of exhibit space located at the heart of the World Trade Center site. The museum tells the story of 9/11 through multimedia displays, archives, narratives and a collection of artifacts. The lives of every victim of the 2001 and 1993 attacks are commemorated here.

    Very informative and appropriately respectful of the event and location. Daniel was a great guide. One drawback is the soliciting of 9/11 photo books while waiting to start the tour by street vendors. The museum is so well done you are absorbed into the event...More

    Our tour was very good and we really appreciated the insights of our guide who was living and working in NYC at the time of 09/11. I learned new things and got new insights. Would recommend

    We had John W as tour guide. What a wonderful experience. He was knowledgeable, engaging, and inspired. You could not ask for a more helpful introduction to a remarkable venue that clearly requires frequent revisits.

    Jennifer did a great job. I was impressed with the tour and our guide, it was very informative. You need to set aside plenty of time for the museum.

    I think you would have to contact the tour operator. I went through Viator. There is another option as well that I think might work best for you. Our tour guide Debbie Mason who we had through Viator has her own tour company... More

    There is much that a nine year old would be able to see and appreciate. There are a few exhibits that you might want to skip. The tour guides inside the museum could help you with that.
