Fantastic and informative walking tour with John Coghlan! He not only provided unique insight into the events of 911 but also the inner workings of the NYC police and fire departments. Truly amazing experience. The only negative was the long wait to enter 911 Museum. I mistakenly thought that expedited entry was part of the tour. Aside from that, this was a tremendous tour!!!

John was fantastic!!
Friendly , easy to talk to, and you didn’t feel rushed.
Place by place he would take you around to an exact spot on the 911 site, then he would show you a picture of it on the day, and what had gone on there.
Not only was his extremely informative, but also told you as he saw and felt it on the day.
There was also a picture officially taken by an official site of him there, which adds a lot of weight.
He was not there at the actual time but very short after, getting taken up with the emotions, and drawing you into a very small window of just a bit what it might of been like.
I fully recommend this tour if you want to hear about it from someone really there, and not just a narrative !!
Lastly John gives you an express ticket into the Museum, and when you are there the places he has taken you to outside and all the relevant facets all fit together.
Thank you for a great tour for me, and a great presentation of the 911 story

This is a fantastic tour, with your tour leader being a retired NYC Detective who was involved as a first responder on 9/11.
It is incredibly informative with lots of first hand information from John. I thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to visit the 9/11 Memorial. Good for all ages too, John is very friendly and extremely interesting to listen too.

We highly recommend this tour. You will get interesting perspective along with personal stories that provide a much richer experience when visiting the museum afterwards.

If you are thinking about visiting the 911 memorial, I highly recommend this tour. John is a retired NYPD detective who was there during the entire 911 crisis, and offers a great deal of insight into what happened on September 11th, and the aftermath. You won't find a better more well informed tour guide. John shared his own personal photos and stories of 911, and provided a very informative tour based on first hand knowledge of how emergency services handled the crisis. We really appreciated the personal touch that John added to the tour, as he led us through the entire area surrounding the former World Trade towers, and concluded at the 911 memorial.
