The One World Trade Center is a symbol of regeneration and healing after one of the worst attacks to ever take place on American soil. On this tour you'll visit some of the key sites of those attacks, then enjoy pre-reserved tickets to the top of the tower, from where you will enjoy panoramic views over NYC.
The day starts in St. Peter's Church where family and friends from all over the city gathered after the attacks to pray for loved ones and await news from the wreckage. As your local guide tells you the story of that day, you'll move on to Ground Zero, where the enormous Reflecting Pools and other memorials have replaced piles of smoking rubble.
Here you'll visit the Fireman's Memorial to learn of the heroic men and women who searched tirelessly through the remains of the buildings for survivors. At the Survivor Tree you'll see one of the most touching reminders of that day - a pear tree that miraculously survived the collapse of the Twin Towers and was nursed back to health by locals, to become a symbol of their own survival and rejuvenation.
With a local guide leading the way, you’ll see special spots away from the major At every step of the tour, except in the One World Observatory, your local guide will be on hand to add background and context. They will tell you the stories of tragedy, but also stories of heroism and community togetherness that came from the terrible event. It's not an easy tour to give or to take, but ultimately it's a powerful reminder of the strength and resilience of the human soul.
You'll finish the day with a pre-reserved entrance into the One World Observatory, meaning your entrance is guaranteed, regardless of how big the crowd waiting outside is. Hop in a "Sky Pod" and hold on tight; these glass elevators zip from the ground to the 102 floor in just 43 seconds. From there you have 360-degree views all around lower Manhattan and beyond. An average visit is about one hour. There’s not much explanation needed here so your guide will leave you for an independent visit, and what better way to end a day of looking back with a glance into the future.
