Private 9-11 Memorial History and Ground Zero Spiritual Tour

Big Apple Fanatics Tours

What You'll Get

The tour begins in the churchyard behind St. Paul’s Chapel, one of New York’s oldest buildings and a place of solace and spiritual strength before and after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Learn about the history of New York before the attacks going back to the Colonial Era. 

  • Take a 2-hour guided tour of Ground Zero and the National September 11 Memorial with an English-speaking guide.
  • Experience the spiritual side of the tragedy at two houses of worship and small memorials.
  • See the recovered neighborhood and learn about NYC history before and after the attacks.

Your guide will show you where the attacks occurred and how the city has changed in the aftermath of the tragedy, as well as the full story of where the disaster took place. We tour inside buildings, lobbies, churches, and the mass transit hub. We see memorials to those lost, small and large. Explore the architectural and historical stories of the buildings and monuments.

This is also a spiritual tour. In addition to touring churches, we also see the beautiful Hudson River Promenade and parks. See the New York Police Department Memorial, Liberty Park, and more.

The tour concludes at the National September 11 Memorial, where we pay our respects to those lost, and honor their memory. We visit the two footprints where the Twin Towers once stood. In this eight-acre park you learn the stories about the victims, from office works, airplane passengers, and first responders. You are free to spend as much time here as you wish.
