9/11 Memorial and Financial District Tour in New YorkBuy tickets now
Taking a walking tour of Ground Zero in New York is an educational experience. Not only do you get to learn about the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the aftermath but also about the history of the New York Financial District and how it shaped New York and the United States. Your certified guide who has personal experience of the events, will share them with you as you explore the site of the former World Trade Center.
Lower Manhattan and Financial District
Both the morning and afternoon tours start at Saint Paul’s Chapel, between Fulton and Vesey Street. You will start by visiting St. Paul’s Chapel before you continue to explore Ground Zero. Because this tour consists of a small group, it is best to book your tickets online in advance here. Be sure to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the tour as it leaves promptly.
There are two options to choose from:
- 10:30 tour for 1.5 hours
- 14:00 tour for 1.5 hours
It is possible to upgrade the tour and add 9/11 Museum entrance to either tour. In that case choose the tour-with-museum when booking. This is important as the 9/11 Museum access can not be added afterwards.
Personal stories of 9/11 and St Paul’s Chapel
Everyone can remember exactly what they were doing when they heard about the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The guide too will tell you about his/her personal connection to the events and the aftermath. In the St Paul’s Chapel you will be able to see a moving exhibit and hear stories of the church being a place of refuge for those involved in recovery work. If you have chosen a tour with 9/11 Museum access your guide will brief you about the museum and then you are free to explore at your own pace.
