Meet your expert tour guide for a unique experience at the Ground Zéro site and experience a 1-hour walking tour of the World Trade Center around monuments and memorials dedicated to the victims and survivors of the tragic events of September 11, 2001. Visit St. Paul’s Chapel and learn about the role it played after the attacks. Gather at the 9/11 memorial, right in front of the memorial pools. Your guide will give you a detailed description of each monument, from the design of the pools to the architecture of the new World Trade Center and its symbolic use of materials, light, and reflections. Pay tribute to the victims at the Firefighter’s Memorial and the Eleven Tears Memorial, often missed by visitors without a guide. Watch the reconstruction of the site by visiting Brookfield Place and the Oculus, the transportation hub of the new World Trade Center.
