Your tour begins outside of St. Paul’s Chapel in Lower Manhattan at a time to suit your schedule — one of the many benefits of a private tour. Your guide explains the significance of the church, which became a sanctuary for rescue workers and mourners in the wake of the terror attacks.

Browse moving memorials inside the church before heading to the National 9/11 Memorial. See structures such as Brookfield Court, formerly known as the World Financial Center, and listen to personal accounts of the terror attacks from your guide.

See, too, the Fireman’s Memorial and ponder the gravity of 9/11 at the reflecting pools, two colossal waterfalls built on the former site of the Twin Towers. Read the names of some 3,000 victims inscribed on the side of the monument.

Upgrade to One World Observatory Admission

Following your tour of Ground Zero, you’ll head to the One World Observatory to sail past the usually long lines and head straight up to the 100th-floor observation deck in a super-speed elevator. Absorb stunning views of the Big Apple from a 1,250-foot (365-meter) vantage point and if you can conquer your vertigo, walk out on the Sky Portal and gaze downwards through a glass-bottom floor.
