What To Expect

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.

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

The National 9/11 Memorial & Museum
You'll enter the 9/11 Memorial, where you can pay your respects to those who lost their lives in the World Trade Center. Take a moment at Michael Arad’s “Reflecting Absence,” a man-made waterfall that symbolizes the void left behind by tragedy. Learn how the names of the nearly 3,000 victims were placed around the waterfall next to their friends, family members, and colleagues. See the new Freedom Tower and World Trade Center rise from the ground.

Our tour guide Maya was knowledgable, thoughtful, informative, and a pleasure to be with in spite of the very cold weather. The pace of the tour was relaxed so we could really take in the moment. Thank you Maya.

Jaclyn Montgomery was our Tour Guide and she was phenomenal! Her presentation was informative with the facts about 911, which she conveyed with honor and sensitivity to the victims and others affected by the tragedy. Although 911 was such a horrific event, Jacklyn relayed the theme of resiliency of the human spirit throughout the tour.

These tours are vital to the teaching of such an important event in American history, while continuing to honor the first responders and all those lost in the terrorist attack.
Thanks Maytag for a great tour!

Maya made this personal and informative. It was great having the perspective of a New Yorker. By offering her personal details she made this a memorable tour.

Really fantastic tour very knowledgeable, tour guide, fun and friendly. The only thing that didn’t come to fruition was getting front of the line access to the memorial so we had to wait 20 minutes in line, but it moved quickly.
Do yourself a favor...
