“It was memorable, touching, and sad. It was also a learning experience to see the people's resilience.  I also visit the museum which was an unbelievable experience. My heart goes to all those families who were more affected by the terrorist attack, survivors and the once that lost loved ones.” CO, Gardena CA

Dear NYCVP: For the past two years, we have scheduled your Ground Zero/Lower Manhattan tour. We have been delighted to have Hal as our guide both years. He is awesome! He brings such a wonderful locals feel to the tour. He loves his City and it shows! He makes his audience love the City too. He is knowledgable, thorough, considerate, helpful and FUN! Thank you for providing such a super host and guide! Next year, I will ask for him again. My best, Dr. ND, Greeneville, Tennessee

"Although I had previously been to the 911 memorial site, this seemed to be a more comprehensive look at an area that I am unfamiliar with- and boy was it! Tony was a personable, knowledgeable guide to 17 people and kept us together through the subway system and to the destination. We started with the area around the ground zero site. Tony gave us such interesting information and facts about the site, the re-building and amazing neighboring Lower Manhattan area including Battery Park and the beautiful new World Finance buildings. We then headed to the Memorial site and then on to the Wall Street area. The tour flowed so smoothly and went at a good pace. I would highly recommend to people interested in seeing a new area, history buffs or New Yorkers that are unfamiliar with the area. The only negative may be for people who want to spend a lot of time at the Memorial and their store which has some displays and film clips. I may even go in this tour again!" Lacey, Coopersburg, PA

Marc was wonderful and the tour he gave was the highlight of [our] trip to NYC. JM, 12/1/12 Tour
We had a great time with Marc and he was very knowledgeable about the city. We enjoyed the walking tour the most. The next time we're in NYC we will definitely request Marc for any tours we do. Keep up the great work Marc. HT/JT

Tour Itinerary
A licensed New York City tour guide will meet you at a convenient midtown Manhattan location (Paramount Plaza, 51st and Broadway in front ofMcDonalds), distribute your roundtrip MetroCard and escort you to lower Manhattan on the subway. There you will begin a guided 3-hour walking tour and visit some of the newest, oldest and most memorable sites in New York City.
Some highlights may include:

  • National 9/11 Memorial (NOTE: Entry into the National 911 Museum is not included on this tour unless purchased as an option).
  • Ground Zero, where you will witness the progress of the World Trade Center rebuilding efforts - the new Number One World Trade Center "The Freedom Tower."
  • You'll see the brand new World Trade Center Transportation Hub, now called The Oculus, an architectural design likened to a bird about to take flight.  As imposing as it is from the outside, The Oculus is amazing from inside. As much a shopping hub as a transit center, the cavernous interior will house high-end and chain retailers along with specialty food and drink venues.
  • The Bronze FDNY 9-11 Memorial Wall, a 56-foot long bronze sculpture that shows firefighters battling the smoldering towers, located on the side of New York City's famed fire station "10 House," the former Reily Hose No. 10 firehouse
  • The NYC Police Memorial at the World Financial Center, a moving tribute to all NYC police officers who have been lost in the line of duty
  • Other touching memorials, both temporary and permanent, to the victims of September 11.
  • Moving tributes to September 11th heroes at St. Paul’s Chapel, New York’s only surviving pre-Revolutionary church
  • Trinity Church, where Alexander Hamilton and Robert Fulton are buried
  • The Neo-Gothic Woolworth Building, the world's tallest building from 1913-1929
  • A walk down narrow Wall Street, past the New York Stock Exchange and Federal Hall National Memorial, where you can see the scars of the 1920 terrorist attack on the JP Morgan Building
  • OPTIONAL (for additional fee): Entry into the 911 Memorial Museum at 12 noon (time subject to availability at time of booking).
