Experience this moving journey through the former World Trade Center where the traumatic events of 9/11 unfolded. On this tour you’ll be escorted by individuals personally connected to the events and hear as they explain their own stories of sadness and heroism from that tragic day in history.
This tour of remembrance begins at St. Paul’s Chapel situated just one block away and which miraculously survived the falling debris. It became a makeshift shelter for the injured and the surrounding fence became a bulletin board where families posted notices of their missing loved ones. Next you’ll see the Firefighter’s 9/11 Memorial Wall and the fire station at Ground Zero where you’ll hear moving accounts from the emergency responders present that day.
From here you’ll enter the 9/11 Memorial. Entry will be at approximately 12:30pm, but may vary depending on the day. Once inside you are free to take your time and pay your respects to those who lost their lives. Visit the Reflecting Absence Memorial, the world’s largest man-made waterfall built to reflect the huge void left by the loss of over 3,000 people. Look upward towards the shining Freedom Towers and beautiful 8-acre complex – take time to reflect and contemplate this sacred place. A moving and memorable experience for the entire family.
