The walking tour and testimonials The guide provided were really insightful and inspiring; they help to really foster an understanding of the mindset of the victims and heroes there during those months and how the cowardly act committed there continues to plague those lucky enough to survive, and those that have always called NYC home.

Our guide, Ray, really tee’d it up for us (4 adults). His storytelling was carefully crafted and held our rapt attention. The fact that all guides have a personal connection to the day was why I chose this company.
