Make your way to St. Paul's Chapel to meet your guide for your walking tour. 

Your guide leads you around the World Trade Center site, including a visit to The 9/11 Memorial, and stops at some of the lesser-known memorials such as The 11 Tears Memorial, The 9/11 Cross, the Bell of Hope at St. Paul's Chapel, and the Fireman's Memorial.

You'll also see Brookfield Place and the Oculus — a new four billion dollar structure housing the third largest transportation hub in New York City, in addition to The Westfield Mall.

Your tour ends after two hours when it is time for your visit to One World Observatory. Your guide accompanies you to the entrance, then you proceed on your own to the Sky Pod elevators, which ascend more than 100 floors in less than one minute.

From the observation deck of One World Observatory, soak in sweeping views of Manhattan and beyond. Your visit to the observatory lasts approximately 1.5 hours, depending on your pace.

Debbie was our tour guide and she was very knowledgeable. She looked after the group by making sure we all were keeping up and ensuring we rested adequately. Debbie shared a lot of information and showed us some of the lesser known memorials like the American Express memorial for their 11 employees. Would highly recommend the tour with Debbie.

Debbie was a wonderful guide especially on a very, very hot day. She kept us in the shade while giving us a full tour. Debbie added personal stories along with facts on a very sensitive subject. Would highly recommend her tour.

I've done many WTC walking tours over the years, and this one was better than any other one I've done. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Having headsets really helped to stay with the group, go at your own pace, but not miss any of the information from the guide. I learned a lot, even having taken many similar tours before. Our guide knew all the best spots for photo opportunities, and allowed time for quiet reflection at the memorial. My only gripe, is that the One World Observatory wasn't really worth it. It's very busy, they try to nickle and dime you before you go up to the observation deck, and personally, I enjoyed the views from the Empire State or Rockefeller Center more.

Our guide was very professional and knowledgeable about the subjects of the tour and everything NYC relate. My 10 year old son was captivated during the whole experience. My only regret is not booking more tours similar to this.
