What People Are Saying About 9/11 Memorial
Tour of twin towers site, PATH train station, St Paul church, pool of sorrow. Explanations throughout
The tour it self was a 5 star event but getting into One World Oberservation was unorganized. The tour was excellent.
the museum is fascinating but the service you provide is less than satisfactory. had to pay for three new tickets, couldn't reach anyone from your company to help me. needed to have the tickets I bought previously from you send to my phone but no one available to help me out. the museum didn't have my name in their system and the ticket manager mentioned that he had had problems with your firm in the past. not a nice experience because of your firm - will not use you again or recommend you to friends.
Tauren was a very good guide, very informative. I think my favourite part was the water fountains with the people's names around them. Love the little St Paul's Chapel too. When you see all the pictures and names of the victims it really brings it home how many people died in this terrible terrorist attack. Mans inhumanity to man!
From the moment of walking towards the building you would have a high level of expectation for the tour you are about to take and it does not disapoint, the views are incredible and the whole experience is one which anyone visiting New York will have had a wasted trip if they do not visit.
