from 9/11 Memorial Tour with Priority Entry Museum Tickets
Like all cities around the world, New York City draws its stories and strengths from the triumphs and tragedies within its limits. On this touching tribute tour, go behind the headlines of the September 11th terrorist attacks to grant insight, understanding, and peace to those directly affected, the citizens of New York, and all those who found themselves at Ground Zero that sunny Tuesday morning in 2001.

Led by a local New York City licensed guide, embark on a two-hour walk through the places integral and spaces memorialized for the events of September 11th, 2001. This intimate tour begins on the steps of St. Peter's Church, where New Yorkers gathered for news of missing loved ones in the immediate aftermath of the attacks.

Visit St. Paul's Chapel, so close to the original World Trade Center, every day as the sun headed west; the shadows of the Twin Towers encompassed this small church. Hear of the incredible support this small, historic place offered for the victims and their families as a round-the-clock relief station for a full 9-months after the tragedy. See the messages and offerings that arrived here from across the globe. Entering the space spread across 8 acres of the World Trade Center former complex, now known as the 9/11 Memorial, pause before some of the most moving tributes, including the FDNY Memorial Wall, the Survivor Tree, and the reflecting pools - arguably the most recognized element of the Memorial, each element paying tribute to the almost 3,000 lives lost in connection to the site. Step into the Oculus, the city's former and now revived World Trade Center Transportation Hub, where light and architecture mingle in magnificent ways in dedication to the events of 9/11.

After some time visiting the exterior spaces, this tour builds in tickets to the 9/11 Memorial Museum, where you can spend time on your own. With pre-reserved tickets, you bypass any line as it stretches around the block, gaining priority access. Before the entrance, your guide will give you a good overview to make good use of your time and not miss any must-see exhibits. Due to this museum's emotional nature, you can take your time and experience this on your own.

The groups are kept small to ensure a level of intimacy befitting such a visit. They have chosen only the best local guides to give your tour a personal touch, giving the 9/11 Memorial and its surroundings the humanity and reverence it deserves.
