Important InfoInfo
Visit: St. Paul's Chapel, 209 Broadway b/t Fulton Street & Vesey Street, New York City, NY 10007-2977

We will start the tour at St. Paul's Chapel, New York City’s oldest public building still in continuous use. Just one block away from the 9/11 attacks, it miraculously survived the falling building and debris. St. Paul’s Chapel served as a makeshift rescue center during the aftermath. Its iron fence became a bulletin board where family members posted notices of their missing loved ones. Today, with the mementos received from people around the world supporting New York City, the church serves as both a landmark and a tribute.

Our guide Bryan was fantastic. It is really the first time that we had a guide explaining so vividly with a lot of personal touches. Despite the fact that 9/11 was a horrible event, Bryan's message was one of hope, courage and human kindness. Best tour ever...

Very interesting tour of the area around Ground Zero by Rob who shared personal experiences from 9/11. He gave history of St Paul’s Chapel, recounted the day of 9/11 and provided present day perspective of how NYC recovered. If you have the time, take the tour then visit the museum. We did it within 3 hours. Worth it.

We had a wonderful guide that made our tour so memorable as the had experienced 911 first hand. To hear her story brought reality to a horrible situation. She was a plethora of knowledge and made this tour. I had been there before but decided to do again as my husband had not sen it. It made the tour so much more informative!

On our recent holiday vaca. five of us toured the above; Because we wanted a more up-close tour using the advantage of a guide we reserved the above...it was so worth it! our guide was very knowledgeable and actually had a personal experience during the 9/11 day...he explained it as 'dumb luck'...i'll not say more...he is a very fortunate man and is alive to share his experience with so many others. We all had a memorable touring experience and would recommend Viator for booking tours.
