    What to Expect
    This Ground Zero walking tour begins at St Paul's Chapel, aka the Little Chapel That Stood. St Paul’s is the oldest public building in New York City that’s still actively used. This church somehow survived the falling debris from the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center despite being only one block away from the melee. It became a kind of rescue center during the aftermath of the tragedy, and the iron fence that surrounds it became a place for family members to post notices about their missing loved ones.

    As the tour continues, walk to the FDNY Memorial Wall and FDNY Ten House. Hear the heroic stories about the emergency responders on that day and see the fire station at Ground Zero.

    Finally, enter the National September 11 Memorial, aka the 9/11 Memorial, a tribute of remembrance and honor to the almost 3,000 people who were killed on 9/11 — at the World Trade Center site, in the plane crash near Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon — as well as the six people who were killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993.

    There are twin reflecting pools at the very spots where the Twin Towers once stood. Look up and see One World Trade Center’s Freedom Tower.

    There is an optional upgrade to include entry into the National September 11 Museum — 110,000 square feet of exhibit space located at the heart of the World Trade Center site. The museum tells the story of 9/11 through multimedia displays, archives, narratives and a collection of artifacts. The lives of every victim of the 2001 and 1993 attacks are commemorated here.

    This is a very difficult review to write as this visit was not only humbling in all aspects but emotional as well and no words can really ever be written on this event and the USA. To begin with when you visit the site - we paid our respects at the site of the first tower -

    Our 9/11 tour with Jon was incredibly informative as well as passionate. He shared his experience of being on the city streets nearby within minutes of the tragedy and how it was so surreal. We were experiencing it on the news but the people of NYC were experiencing it first

    Our tour guide Ibeth was really detailed with sharing the events that day. She reminded us how life is short and precious in many ways and kept saying we don't know when it's our day and reminded us to love our families. That date 9/11/01 completely changed many of our lives

    We have lived through 9/11 being from Long Island and being on the tour with our tour guide Dan certainly brought to light many things that we never knew about that horrific day. Getting to the meeting spot and meeting with Dan was easy. Starting at St. Paul's Chapel, we learned
