What people are saying about 9/11 Memorial

Overall rating

4.7 / 5

based on 12,781 reviews

More than expected, a nice walk-trough the history of the building before going on top. Super friendly staff & cool touch with the fotos that you can buy at the end. It’s a montage od you sitting on a steel beam with city in background. The price for all photos (digotal) is 30$, if you want hard copy its 5$ per picture. Overall great expirience.

Allows you to see the main attractions at a moderate price and discover lesser known ones thanks to an exhaustive list. Easy to use, the pass is known to all employees of these attractions. Remember to check for each attraction if a reservation is necessary and show up at least 30 minutes before. I recommend without hesitation.

We really enjoyed this tour and our guide Paul was terrific. He knew a lot about New York and was very entertaining!!

This pass is a great way to see NYC and save $$. Very easy to use. Glad I bought it!

Very handy. Get a discount and skip the waiting lines.
