For this private tour of the 9/11 Memorial and Ground Zero, meet your guide at St. Paul’s Chapel on Broadway in New York City, a bit before the prearranged time. Multiple tour times are offered throughout the day.

Your guide is personally connected to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, and dives deep into the events of that day so you can gain a better understanding.

Your tour starts at the chapel, which was a safe place where rescue workers could eat and sleep in between missions.

Move along to see the exact spot where the World Trade Center once stood, and take in views of the memorial itself. If you’ve upgraded to get a 9/11 Museum ticket, your guide takes you there, too. 

Your tour either ends at the 9/11 Memorial or at the 9/11 Museum if you've upgraded. Stay and explore the memorial when your tour finishes.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
St. Paul's Chapel
We will start the tour at St. Paul's Chapel, New York City’s oldest public building still in continuous use. Just one block away from the 9/11 attacks, it miraculously survived the falling building and debris. St. Paul’s Chapel served as a makeshift rescue center during the aftermath. Its iron fence became a bulletin board where family members posted notices of their missing loved ones. Today, with the mementos received from people around the world supporting New York City, the church serves as both a landmark and a tribute.
Duration: 15 minutes

Tour guide Alison Rose gave us an excellent tour of the memorial and surrounding area. She struck a perfect balance between personal, reflective, informative and humorous. We appreciated the unique knowledge and perspective of a resident New Yorker.
