Standing tall and proud on the site of the 9/11 attacks, One World Trade Center is a testament to a city that was knocked down and got back up again. Get to the heart of that terrible tragedy and learn how NYC rebuilt itself bigger, better and stronger on our guided 9/11 Memorial Tour. With small groups of only 20 people or fewer, your tour will be intimate and your local tour guide easy to interact with.
You`ll start out at St. Peter`s Church from where you walk over to St. Paul`s Chapel with a more personal insight into the drama that unfolded here. This was where families and friends came to pray, offer support and await news in the immediate aftermath of the attacks; as testified by the hand-drawn cards and memorials, personal memorabilia and photographs that still hang here.
On next to some sites you may have missed visiting on your own. With a local guide leading the way, you`ll see special spots away from the major landmarks. At the 9/11 Memorial, your guide will make your visit that bit more special. Together you`ll see the Twin Reflecting Pools, built in the footprints of the World Trade Centre and engraved with the names of every victim. Learn the little nuances that make it more touching; like how staff place a single rose in the name of each victim on their birthday. Visit the Fireman`s Memorial to pay tribute to those brave men and women who worked around the clock after the attacks. See the Survivor`s Tree, a single tree which miraculously survived the attacks and was nursed back to health by New Yorkers, as a symbol of their enduring strength.
The highlight of your tour comes at the end with a visit to the brand new One World Observatory. With pre-reserved tickets your entrance is guaranteed regardless of the how large the crowds are. There`s not much explanation needed here so your guide will leave you for an independent visit.
Inside the lobby you`ll find videos about the production of this incredible structure – said to be the strongest in the world – and of the men and women who built it. Then board a skypod to travel through time and space. Created in association with Universal Studios, the special skypod elevators are covered inside in LCD screens, on which you`ll watch the changing face of New York from the 1600s to today while ascending 102 floors in just 42 seconds. Disembark at the top of One World Observatory for incredible panoramic views over NYC. What better way to end a day of looking back with a glance into the future.
