Great learning experience
I learned so much! Frank had a fun way of making all the information interesting. Plus he knew practically everything about the area. He welcomed questions and actually cared if we heard and understood. The pace of the tour was slow enough for everyone to keep up.

First Class Tour
Absolutely loved the morning spent with Jessica. She was a delight & full of knowledge from the moment we met her until cheerio time. It was clear she knew her history very well but what impressed me was the way she delivered & shared the information with her group. Her voice was clear & nice to listen to , she made sure that the whole group were all getting the most from the tour - paying attention to the younger members of our group too.

It's the first time my other half and myself have visited NYC. We had such a great day on our guided tour with Lyndsey. Thank you so much for an amazing day.

FAQs

How much walking is there?

We cover about 2 miles in Lower Manhattan at a leisurely pace. If mobility is an issue, you can also book a private tour.

Does this tour go inside the 9/11 Museum?

The 9/11 Memorial is included on this trip, however, it does not include a visit to the 9/11 Museum. We suggest our 9/11 Memorial and Museum Insider Tour if you want to explore the museum as part of your Ground Zero visit.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We are aware that plans might change. You may easily change your tour up to 24 hours before departure. We provide a 100% refund up to 24 hours before the start of your tour. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

When should I get there?

Prepare to arrive 15 minutes early. The trip begins immediately, and if you come late, you may not be able to catch up.

What if it rains?

Our tours go on rain or shine, so please check the weather forecast before you go. If we have to cancel due to severe weather conditions, we will give you the option to reschedule or get a full refund.

Are gratuities included?

Tips are always appreciated but never expected. They’re a great way to tell your guide they did an awesome job and show your appreciation.
