Follow the path taken by these first responders and learn how they withstood the collapse of a 110-story tower, while still inside it. You'll be astonished by the bravery of New York City's firefighters, which includes the legendary "Dragon Fighters of Ladder Six." Discover how "Angel of Stairwell B" helped save a team of firefighters and miracle of the "911 surfer", who rode down with 88 stories of imploding debris.

This tour concludes at the Memorial Plaza, where you'll learn how the new World Trade Center was designed and constructed along with the world's most expensive transit hub called "the Oculus."

I'm a professionally licensed New York City tour guide. I lived in New York City for over 49 years. This city's cultural diversity and boundless energy has always set it apart from other metropolises.

It's the reasons I fell in love with this city and wanted to become a tour guide. One of my goals is to help visitors have the best vacation possible.

Where you'll be

This tour starts across from the Oculus. It's a $4 billion transit hub located within the World Trade Center Complex. We'll visit the North Cove where the largest rescue by sea transpired. Where over 500,000 people were evacuated from Lower Manhattan during September 11, 2001. The tour ends inside the Memorial Plaza's reflecting pools.

My fiancé and I were lucky to get a private tour with Andrew ( the early bird gets the warm). Andrew, our tour guide was by far the best and very well educated about the 9/11 (before, during, and after). Andrew goes above and beyond and It shows that he loves what he does and really wants the guest to experience the best of the best. I will VERY highly recommend to book this tour if you spending the weekend in NYC. Don't be shy to ask Andrew for recommendation for food or places to visit!

This experience is really worth choosing! It was much better than I expected :) I met an adorable guide, who was not only friendly, easygoing and knew lots of information, but also had a nice personality and told some personal stories related to the subject. Choosing this you will have not only some simple facts from the history, but detailed historic references and the best views from spots in real life as well. The host is also the nicest person - he will give you some tips for your stay in NY if you need any. Strongly recommend! ❤️

He did an awesome job of explaining the story of the dragon fighters involvement in 9/11. His knowledge on the subject and events of 9/11 were amazing. Definitely recommend this tour

What an excellent tour honoring the heroes of September 11th. My tour guide Andrew beautifully told their stories using large posters. This really help my friends and I to follow along his narration.
