Our guide was knowledgeable including some personal stories. Allowed time for pictures and a restroom break. Gave additional lower Manhattan details. Our your will last with us a lifetime!
Our tour guide was Andrew and he was great! So informative. He was able to take us through the events of that day and it was very emotional. But Andrew really knew his stuff. Thank you and definitely join the tour!
Meaningful tour of many interesting facts. Enjoyed seeing the Oculus and spending time at the memorial pools. Very moving. Thank you to our guide, Andrew.
Our guide Brendan was excellent. We had a four person tour and it was soon worthwhile. Brendan covered all the key events during the tragedy and brought home just how heroically the responders and victims behaved. While we were talking a former commissioner of the NYC fire Department walked up and listened in to Brendan's talk. He liked the story he heard! The museum tour was incredible and again something not to miss.
Absolutely fantastic tour, Andrew our brilliant guide told the story so so well. He truly made this tour the highlight of our first visit to New York and I can’t thank him enough.
