Overview
In remembrance of the events that took place on September 11, 2001, take this 1.5-hour walking tour of Ground Zero and the National September 11 Memorial.

Get a deeper understanding of the events that took place here. Upgrade to add entry into the National September 11 Museum.
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.

Personalised walking tour

We were in NY last week and booked this tour. It was very informative and quite emotional as our Guide was a local who was in primary school nearby on 9/11. The Memorial itself is a magnificent feat of architecture with 14 tube stations and...More

mesmerizing

Such a beautiful and somber place. We went at night which was awesome. Online it was a little confusing about if it costs to go to the memorial - because the 911 museum is on site though not needed to go to the memorial itself....More
