What people are saying about One World Trade Center

A Good Outdoor Tour and 102nd Story View

The tour guide, Mary, was excellent; friendly, courteous and knowledgeable of the time and circumstances, and shared her own events of that day as she showed us the outside areas of the 911 Memorial and surrounding buildings. The 2nd part: 102nd observation deck of the One World Observatory was well worth the time also. The Empire State Building gives a view of Manhattan from the center, and One World gives a view from Lower Manhattan with views of the Statue of Liberty etc.

Awesome experience and great information!

Our tour guide took time to tell the 911 story and walked us to the areas around the WTC giving us history and perspective for those who went through the disaster. Then to see the memorials and museum. Glad I went and worth every minute.

To BE A VIP is EASY TO GET accustomed TO !

I was SURPRISED and DISAPPOINTED that Even though WE PAID for 'Skip The Line' We were STILL ASKED to pay for USE of the LAPTOP AND THE PHOTOS ! ! ! I felt that there was a GREED FACTOR by ONE WORLD TOWER

The experience was mind boggling and I believe everyone should visit.

Being able to take in the view from so high above is awe inspiring and also a time to reflect on those lives lost and the horrific reality that being trapped so high up must have created. It may be a tourist attraction now but it is more so hollowed ground, Breathtaking is the one word for this......
