Description
New York is one of the most influencial cities in the world. Practically anything a person could do that's considered to be productive has been done in that city. If you plan on going there, think about what's going to happen in the coming days. There is often a lot that every person could take a lot from if they are in the right places.

9/11 is considered to be a tragic event unanimously by Americans. Not only did it kill the lives of thousands, but it also shows that we needed to chance our lives in this country. The president created many laws that would help to keep us safe. Some were criticized because they think that the bills were passed way to quickly to get an accurate opinion.

There are many theories as to what really happened that day in 2001. This tour is going to tell you the truth. It will show to you the step by step process of how things changed and how the building was eventually destroyed. If you are ever in the city, you should go to the one world trade center. It is the tallest building in the western hemisphere.

Not only that, the construction process has taken awhile. It started way back in 2006. It wasn't really polished until 2012, taking 6 and a half to bring to the public. There is so much history that will make people emotional when they see this.

Take a look for yourself if you want to see the magic. There is often a new experience that people have every time that they go there. Things are constantly changing.
In remembrance of September 11, 2001, this walking tour takes you through the former World Trade Center in New York City, where the events of 9/11 took place. You'll be guided by New Yorkers who have connections to that day, listening to their personal stories and touching accounts of the heroism of many others.

Ground Zero
Your tour starts at St. Paul's Chapel, the oldest public building in NYC still in continuous use, which miraculously survived the falling debris from the 9/11 attacks despite being one block away. It became a makeshift rescue center during the aftermath, and its iron fence became a bulletin board where family members posted notices of missing loved ones. Today, with the mementos received from people around the world supporting New York, the church serves as a tribute. As you continue to the Firefighter's 9/11 Memorial Wall, hear the heroic stories of the emergency responders, and see the Engine and Ladder Company 10/10, the fire station at Ground Zero.

9/11 Memorial
Enter the 9/11 Memorial, where you can pay your respects to those who lost their lives in the World Trade Center. See the Reflecting Absence Memorial, the man-made waterfall inside the memorial, symbolizing the vast void left by the tragedy. Read the names of the nearly 3,000 victims placed around the waterfall next to their friends, family members, and colleagues, and see the new World Trade Center rise from the ground. At the conclusion of your tour, your guide provides you with a timed entry ticket to minimize your wait time at the museum, which you'll enter first, followed by the observatory.

9/11 Museum
Your museum entry time is about 12pm for the 10:30am tour or 3:30pm for the 2pm tour (select your preferred tour time when booking), but this can vary depending on availability. Your guide gives you a preview of the museum and what to expect so you can optimize your time spent inside and not miss seeing things important to you. Your visit is self-guided, so you'll explore at your own pace to see artifacts from the attacks and hear recordings from people who were there that day.

One World Observatory
After leaving the museum, head to One World Trade Center, named Freedom Tower, to visit the One World Observatory. This panoramic observation deck is a marvel of engineering and architecture. The program begins in the lobby with 'Voices,' a film dedicated to the men and women of the towers. Then take the Sky Pod elevator, which rises 1,250 feet in less than 60 seconds.

Immersive LED displays, interactive touch-screen video, and dining options give you plenty to experience, but the true draw is the view as you stand hundreds of feet above the New York City skyline stretching across all of Manhattan.

Your observatory entry time is after your museum visit: typically 2pm for the 10:30am tour or 5:30pm for the 2pm tour.
