Our guide, Peter, had some amazing knowledge of the event as it was so dear to his heart. His personal experience on the day in question was sobering to hear but it ultimately made for some great storytelling.

This was a great walking tour of the area at ground zero. Peter did a very good job of explaining the event and the buildings involved in the immediate area. You could do this tour on your own, but you would not have much of the details provided by the tour guide. The end of the tour put us on top of the World Observatory for an awesome view of Manhattan. Weather was not good, so will not post any pictures as they were marginal at best. Can't beat this on a clear day!

Although tragic without doubt the tour was awesome made even more so by the tour guide who shared her personal experience of being at school when this unspeakable event happened. Very very moving.

Our tour guide Peter was excellent he gave us lots of information in a respectful manner with a touch of humour. We were in New York for one day and this was the only tour we did and I can highly recommend it. We had a drink at the top of the tower with amazing views over the Big Apple

Allison was a great guide. Very informative. It was a moving experience. The view from One World Observatory was incredible. I ate lunch at the restaurant, which was delicious, and enjoyed the view tremendously.

We had a terrific guide on this trip - he really knew the history and area. Very moving to see this in person and if you had been in the original buildings sometime before 9/11 there was an eerie feeling to see this place again. Recommend the zone World Observatory as you do get to jump the line - it is a long line - and get right into the elevator to 5he top. Great views of the city on our visit, well worth seeing. - we had lunch there - not great food but you get a private restroom that the masses are not get g.

Despite the appalling weather that day, we had a blizzard, the tour was excellant and the guide full of interesting but not boring information. The trip up the One world observatory was rearranged due to the weather but when we did go we observed sunset over New York amazing

It was cloudy on the day we went to the One Tower and we were advised not to go up. A good job we decided to ignore the advice as actually the views weren't too bad and the next day it rained and then it snowed.

There is a big problem here. Even though the title clearly reads 9/11 Memorial and Ground Zero Walking Tour with One World Entrance, it does not include the memorial. It is only a walking tour. We had to buy tickets and enter the memorial as a different venue.
