Discover the important sites of the 9/11 Memorial (Reflecting Pools, Fireman's Memorial, St. Paul's Chapel, and the Survivor's Tree) with a local guide. You will also have access to the One World Trade Center Observatory by avoiding long waiting lines.
The One World Trade Center has become a symbol of resilience following one of the worst attacks ever carried out on American soil. During this visit, you will visit some of the key sites of these attacks, after which you will have priority access to its Observatory without standing in line; the ideal place to admire a superb view of all of New York City!
You will follow your guide to Ground Zero, the very place where the huge Reflecting Pools and other memorials have now replaced what were left of the famous skyscrapers - huge, smoking piles of rubble.
There, you will go to Fireman's Memorial; your guide will tell you more about the heroic feats of the men and women who, tirelessly, have never stopped excavating the remains of the affected buildings.
It is at Survival's Tree that you will see one of the most touching reminders of that day: a small pear tree that miraculously survived the collapse of the Twin Towers. Thanks to the care provided by the local residents, this young tree - Survival's Tree - stands proudly and today symbolizes their own survival!
Your local guide will accompany you on each step of the visit (except in the One World Trade Center Observatory) to tell you more about all these memorial sites; stories of heroism and human solidarity that have occurred as a result of this terrible and tragic event.
Your visit will end with the One World Trade Center Observatory, for which you will have priority and guaranteed access - so forget the long queues! Get in a "Sky Pod" elevator and hang on tightly; from these ultra-fast elevators with glass walls, you will climb from the first to the 102nd floor in just 43 seconds! Take advantage of this time spent at the Observatory to contemplate the breathtaking 360-degree view you will have of Manhattan and beyond!
Meet your guide in front of St Peter Catholic Church
