What people are saying about New York City

We’ve used GetYourGuide countless times in other countries but never in the US and never for this type of tour. Every experience has been consistent (e.g., easy and convenient meet-up, knowledgeable guide, interesting content and an overall great experience). NYC was no different!. The meeting point was easy to find and check-in was painless. Brian (our guide) did not disappoint! (I was concerned that I had built-up my husband’s expectations too much. He is not one for group tours.) Brian was an excellent guide with a personal connection to 911. His stories were insightful and touching. His humor added a nice touch. It would have been tragic to go to the museum with having experienced our time with Brian! He made our visit to both the Museum and the observatory more meaningful.

Our guide, Ibeth, made our tour a very meaningful and emotional experience. In sharing her personal experience of that day, she made me feel like I was there. I knew nothing about the details of the memorial. When I share with others, even those who have been there, most are unaware of those details. Ibeth spoke loudly and clearly. She invited questions and made everyone feel welcome. I really appreciated that she told others on the tour to please stop talking so that everyone could hear and learn. I highly recommend this tour.

Would thoroughly recommend this trip, certainly worth doing rather than just the memorial and museum. Eric, our guide took us around the area, explaining history, adding anecdotes and bringing it all to life. He was a fantastic guide and reallly connected with the group. The museum is an amazingly powerful experience too. There was zero visibility at the top of the Freedom Tower but the lady at the kiosk readily moved our slot to another day so we won't miss out. All in all, an excellent day.

Excellent detailed information and it is the best way to get to know the history of the place. Bring comfortable shoes and clothing appropriate for the season because if it is a while walking.

Julie was EXCELLENT and super informative! The fact that she is a survivor of 9/11 was especially poignant. We would highly recommend Julie and this tour!
