Tough lesson!!
Eleanor_L, Sep 2023
Could not find parking, missed the whole tour, thankfully I was able to get my tickets for the museum, never made to The one World Observatory, so I don't even know if I'll ever be able to use those tickets. I did get to spend time in New York and I loved it and my family loved it too!
Amazing and profound.

MaryLynn_L, Sep 2023
We had an amazing guide, he was very knowledgeable it was too bad it was raining because we had paid for the observatory floor in the freedom tower but because of the rain we could not see a thing up there so that was disappointing. The actual tour of the museum was very good. This is a must see to remember all those who died thst horrible day!

Good in general
Lisa_P, Sep 2023
The tour was in general good, did the tour, museum and observatory. But the tour itself with the guide was a bit strange with some kind of Information i did not expected and which was not related to 9/11.
Will never forget it.
JohnR, Sep 2023
This whole tour was simply amazing. We loved every part of it. Tim M was our guide and he was super informative and had stories to tell about all the events that occurred. He had first hand stories from people who he knew. It was quite an easy walk around the streets so people of all ages will be able to do it. You end up at the memorial fountain and the emotions you feel at the site are really strong. The museum is next ant that was incredible. All topped off with a ride up the elevator to the top of the new World Trade. Highly recommended.
Respectful and Knowledgeable Guide
Kate_D, Sep 2023

The World changed 9/11 must see.
Steven_Z, Sep 2023
Tim was an excellent guide, true New Yorker, accent and all ,everyone knows the story, but to hear it from a New Yorker's point of view was special. I would recommend it to anyone visiting the City.
