Visit: St. Paul's Chapel, 209 Broadway b/t Fulton Street & Vesey Street, New York City, NY 10007-2977

We will start the tour at St. Paul's Chapel, New York City’s oldest public building still in continuous use. Just one block away from the 9/11 attacks, it miraculously survived the falling building and debris. St. Paul’s Chapel served as a makeshift rescue center during the aftermath. Its iron fence became a bulletin board where family members posted notices of their missing loved ones. Today, with the mementos received from people around the world supporting New York City, the church serves as both a landmark and a tribute.

We had an excellent guide, Nick. He explained very well what happened on that awful day. It was sad to visit, but we felt we needed to pay our respects, definitely will never forget.

Amy was awesome! She was very knowledgeable about Ground Zero and the events that happened on 9/11. She also shared personal connections to the tragic events of that day.

The tour was very informative. Our guide, Patrick, brought the whole experience to life. He showed some pictures to demonstrate where we were standing during the attack on that date. He filled in so much factual data.

Very interesting tour of the area around Ground Zero by Rob who shared personal experiences from 9/11. He gave history of St Paul’s Chapel, recounted the day of 9/11 and provided present day perspective of how NYC recovered. If you have the time, take the tour then visit the museum. We did it within 3 hours. Worth it.

We had a wonderful guide that made our tour so memorable as the had experienced 911 first hand. To hear her story brought reality to a horrible situation. She was a plethora of knowledge and made this tour. I had been there before but decided to do again as my husband had not sen it. It made the tour so much more informative!

On our recent holiday vaca. five of us toured the above; Because we wanted a more up-close tour using the advantage of a guide we reserved the above...it was so worth it! our guide was very knowledgeable and actually had a personal experience during the 9/11 day...he explained it as
'dumb luck'...i'll not say more...he is a very fortunate man and is alive to share his experience with so many others. We all had a memorable touring experience and would recommend Viator for booking tours.

Peter was excellent and answered all questions with detail. Amazing tour for entire family. NYC did a nice job on memorials and the world will never forget any of the people involved on that very sad day

Not quite the tour we thought this would be. Hal (our guide) started off informing us of the tragic events that morning on 9/11 but then we were escorted into a shopping mall where we spent at least 1 hour learning very LITTLE about what the events on 9/11. It was just random facts about the mall and Hal's own life.

The tour was informative when we reached the two memorial pools - this was extremely interesting. Hal clearly knew what he was talking about but myself and my friends just thought there was too much pointless info provided.

Not worth the money (perhaps a different tour guide would have made the experience better)

The 9/11 Memorial is phenomenal!!! Buy your tickets at the event... Be careful getting tickets through Viator - I didn't realize we had to go to another address to have our tickets validated. This was very inconvenient, It was pouring rain, one of our party was handicapped, so we purchased tickets at the 911 Memorial. I was shocked that I was charged from Viator for something I never validated or used. After requesting a refund from Viator, my refund was denied. Be very careful! Read all the fine print... I am very unhappy paying $140 for something I never used. I was never offered a credit to my account or the opportunity to discuss a fair resolution.
