Today was my daughter's 16th birthday. It was a challenge to find something to do or somewhere to go. The choice was easy for her. Lady Liberty. I begin with this to stress the importance of having a good day for her. Our tour guide was an amazing man named Ceasar. He didn't to to us. He spoke WITH us. He shared information so genuinely with my family. When we made it back home, we talked about the tour and what it would have been like without him, if we had just walked around on our own. From incredible facts to the best seat on the ferry, Ceasar was too notch. The fact that he made a genuine connection made our tour an event. He created a memory for us. We are forever grateful. He is an asset to the company, the city, and humanity. It was a great tour lead by a great man.
I got many questions answered to myself. Like why in the second building got killed twice more people then in the building that was attacked first. Why authorities didn’t let people go? Why people been asked to go back in place? During every fire alarm people asked to leave the building and not to use the elevator. The first building was on fire and in the second building people was asked to stay in place and wait. It was records of people phone calls confirming that. This is ridicules. All lives in the second building could be saved. At least many. Elevator worked and all stairs was opened for 20 min between two planes. A lots of detail that people can explore and understand materials provided.
With the New York Explorer pass, we selected the 7 most important sights. Then I started planning the days. I got to know the subway and bus transportation in New York and planned where and how to go. Now I’m nearing the end and enjoying it more and more. I’ve been to the U.S. several times, but I’ve avoided big cities by far so far. However, I was in almost every National Park. I think we will enjoy that too.
He knew dates, answered our questions, and made sure we were together. We knew when we would meet back with each other, and he made it feel personalized while we were in a group. We really enjoyed our tour!
We had a great day for a sail to Liberty Island... only confusion was to stay on or get off the boat at Ellis Island. If that can be made clear upon departure, it would make for a perfect ride!
