On this New York City 9/11 Memorial and Museum Tour, you'll visit both the memorial that honors the victims lost in the terrorist attacks and the historical institution that educates about the events that occurred. Guests can walk through the memorial’s eight acres of tribute space where the towers once stood and see a variety of exhibits and landmarks.
Departure point is at 22 Barclay Street (St. Peter's Church) with the meet up at the front steps of the church or as confirmed in your confirmation email. The tour meeting time is 15 minutes prior to the Memorials of 9.11 tour start time. The tour guides will be holding a sign with the Walks logo and the words “MEET HERE” on it.
Approximately 2 hours.
If you are running late, it's best to contact the 9/11 Memorial Tour operator at the phone number on your e-ticket so they can reach out to your guide. This is not always possible for all tours - their guides are with other clients and already into the tour (they ask them not to use their phones during their tour). But in some cases, a few minute delay can be remedied. Most times, guides leave the meeting point within 5 minutes of the tour start time.
This tour includes a pre-reserved ticket to the 9/11 Memorial Museum, a local English-speaking guide, and an expertly guided walking tour. All tours are in English.
