What People Are Saying about One World Trade Center

Knowledgeable tour guide and incredible scenery from high above

Our tour guide was interesting, knowledgeable and told stories of 9/11 that were truly moving. The view from the observatory was remarkable especially on a beautiful day like the one we had. We were very lucky as the next day, January 4 was when the "cyclone bomb" (so distatefully named) hit New York. Negative points: (1) The tablet that was rented for $15 was an absolute waste. Not only not very informative, but there was recorded street noise that accompanied every audio comment. Very bad! (2) Finding the starting point for the tour was not easy. We had to ask for directions several times.

Professional, educational and inspirational

This was a tour by accident really. We purchased our tickets online but somehow chose a tour that was different to the one we thought we were getting. Ceaser, our guide, walked us through not just the Ground Zero Memorial but a host of interesting stories and facts of early New York City history as we made our way from Battery Park to the memorial. Fun and informative it was terrific to get a feel for the whole lower financial district.

She was informative and personal a fantastic experience

She gave pertinente history and facts that brought the whole 911event into focus.

Well worth the time & money, informative tour for the 911 Memorial.

Our guide did a great job. He was able to provide background information of the original World Center Twin Towers but also of the rescue effort. Well worth it. Highly recommended!

Incredible - breathtaking - an NYC must do

Incredible structure, beautifully done and crafted. Views like none other and all encased in warmth and air conditioning for an any time of year visit. Every point considered with the initial video presentation being a real bonus. iPad audio visual is a good addition particularly if you’re interested in history and geography.
