WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY ABOUT THIS TOUR:
“As a New Yorker, I lived through the horrors of 9/11, and it took me ten years to find the strength and will to return to the area. I finally did, and have more or less made peace with the new reality. When I saw this tour advertised, I hesitated, then decided to take it because there are always things I didn’t know/hadn’t heard about. Jeff, the tour guide, didn’t disappoint. He was informative, clear and thorough. He showed us parts of the structure that survived the attack, and that I hadn’t known about, and tied together pieces of the story that made it more understandable. He had lots of fascinating pictures, and was sensitive enough not to talk about the events of 9/11 in a way that might offend anyone who may have lost loved ones in the attacks.” — gullible traveler, Trip Advisor
