Full description
On this 3.5-hour tour your experienced local guide will provide a complete overview of the World Trade Center as it was before September 11th, as it stands today, and as it will be in the future. 

Visit St. Paul's Chapel, which played an important role in the months following September 11th. Your guide will discuss the events of September 11th and you’ll hear some personal stories about the people connected with that day.

Your guide will explain the rebuilding of the complex anchored by One World Trade Center, the tallest building in the western hemisphere, and you'll get to see and go inside the newest parts of the complex that have been completed and watch the next buildings rise before you. Your guide will show you how the architects designed the new World Trade Center buildings to be part of the 9/11 Memorial that stands at the center of it all. Visit other memorials in the area that you probably wouldn't come across on your own.

Just before reaching the 9/11 Memorial Plaza you’ll stop at the Fireman's Memorial, a 56-foot-long bronze plaque honoring New York's finest, who made the ultimate sacrifice on that day.

Stand beside the reflecting pools at the 9/11 Memorial, as your guide explains the meaning, symbolism, and deliberate design of everything from the memorial pools to the museum building and more.

Finally, the guide will show you to the entrance of One World Observatory where the guided portion of your tour ends. Enter the high-speed sky pod elevator that will take you up 102 stories in less than a minute.

Emozionante e interessante

Tour in inglese, comincia con la spiegazione degli avvenimenti successivi all'11 settembre e con il giro dell'intera zona del memoriale, per il quale ci vogliono circa 2 ore. Bellissima la visita delll' area in cui si trova la nuova stazione della metropolitana, sobria, elegante e densa di ricordi di quello che è stato, con scorci panoramici particolarissimi. Il tutto dominati costantemente dagli oltre 500 metri della Freedom Tower, sulla quale si sale in autonomia al termine del tour. Non aggiungo altro per non rovinare lo spettacolo, fantastico, che ha inizio già negli ascensori.

Would have preferred it to be more informative.

I think the tour could have been more informative about the events of the day and later.
