Ibeth was a great guide. It was chilling listening to her recounting of events from the perspective of a witness to the events at ground zero.

I already knew a lot about 9/11 from years of documentaries and this tour still provided a lot of new information. Jared was a great tour guide who could answer all my questions and had a great personality. I highly recommend this tour!

Peter was a very informative tour guide. He informed us he was the 2nd best tour guide in NYC lol. We hope our rating elevates him to Number 1. Tour is highly recommended and definitely worth the money. Museum was wonderful. It was a moving and solemn experience. Don't rush yourselves allow plenty of time and go early. Awesome day.

Our guide Bryan was fantastic. It is really the first time that we had a guide explaining so vividly with a lot of personal touches. Despite the fact that 9/11 was a horrible event, Bryan's message was one of hope, courage and human kindness. Best tour ever...
