      About This New York Tour

      If it's possible to truly be shocked and awed, this tour does it. Both sentiments come naturally as you visit the places where 9/11's drama unfolded on its most human scale. 

      Like at St. Paul's Chapel, escaping miraculously unscathed just blocks away. Bone-tired rescue workers slept in shifts in the pews while families and friends held endless vigil for the missing after the attacks; their hand-drawn cards and personal memorabilia remain.

      And at the Fireman's Memorial, paying tribute to the scores of brave men and women who responded to the attacks, many sacrificing themselves to save hundreds of others.

      The shock and awe peaks at the twin Reflecting Pools, cascading into the very footprints of the original towers, the sides etched with the name of every victim. 

      You'll see the magnificent glass-roofed Winter Garden, rebuilt just a year after the attacks, and the Survivor's Tree. It's charred trunk was pulled from the smoldering rubble and nursed back to life, a real-life phoenix from the ashes. 

      But standing high above these sites is the most powerful symbol of all. The 1,776-foot One World Trade Center is a testament to a city that will truly never sleep – or give up. Knocked down in the most harsh way, New York rose up again – and rebuilt itself bigger, better, and stronger than ever.

      As you soar up to One World Observatory, you'll step out into a jaw-dropping, 360-degree, floor-to-ceiling glass view that reveals the city from a vantage point unlike any other, and your mind will shift totally away from shock, and straight into pure awe.   

      More than 11 tears

      Inside the lobby of Three World Trade Center, an 1,100-pound Brazilian quartz crystal, carved into an 11-sided shape called a hendecahedron, is suspended by thin cables over an 11-sided granite reflecting pool. At random intervals, 11 gentle "tear drops" fall from the high ceiling, creating interconnected ripples over the inscribed names of the 11 American Express staffers who lost their lives on September 11th. This simple, quietly animated tribute is one of the most moving sights on your tour.
