What people are saying about One World Trade Center

Hal gave a very informative and touching tour.

Hal was a very well spoken and caring guide. There was a young woman in a wheelchair in our group and he was attentive to her needs. I was happy to learn of the Occulus Mall, it was very futuristic, and the 11 Tears fountain at American Express was new to me and heart-breaking.

Really cool experience for the whole family!

Be prepared for goose bumps and thrills! The quick elevator ride up to the 102nd floor will have your ears popping, but you will have no idea you are moving. This is a must see! We opted for One World Observatory over Empire State Building or Top of the Rock. It was a good choice indeed! You probably don't need to spend more on a Skip the Line ticket. It all depends on the day you go. The whole thing was very well organized with employees at every turn ready to assist.

One World Observatory Ticket: Skip-the-Ticket-Line Reviewed by Bethany, 04/08/2019

A very informative way to gain insight about the 9/11 tragedy.

Our tour guide provided a detailed and informative tour of Ground Zero. He added a lot of insight and perspective on a very tragic event.

Amazing, spectacular views of Manhattan and beyond from high in thesky

This is a must on any tourist visit to New York. Buying tickets in advance meant we were able to ‘skip the line’ giving us more time for viewing. Sit and listen to the ambassadors talk it’s fun and informative. The view of the 9/11 memorial is fantastic.

Informative, emotional, excellent and worth every penny!!!

I’m so glad we opted for the guided tour. Issa was awesome! He was well informed, well spoken, authentic and personable. The information gained through the tour was incredibly insightful and educational for our party ages 8 to 48.
