About
[Best Valued 2-Hour Experience. All tour guides use large 11" x 17" photos to add richness to your experience.] This tour details the heroism of New York City's firefighters and the survivors of Stairwell "B."

In addition, grasp how the new World Trade Center was designed and constructed. This is the definitive walking tour of Ground Zero and the 911 Memorial Plaza. A portion of the proceeds from this tour will be donated to the Non-Profit FDNY Foundation. Optional upgrades available for skip-the-ticket-line tickets to the 911 Memorial Museum and One World Observatory.

We were very glad we took this tour with Brandon. The tour is really well planned, informative and emotional. We saw and understood a lot more of the memorial than we would of on our own.

This was my 4th trip to NY (3rd time since 911) and I learned more than I expected! This trip was so well-thought out and the amount of information provided was a testament to the research that was done. What made the trip even better was our tour guide, Andrew L! He was polite, professional, courteous and extremely knowledgeable! He is the best! A TRUE GEM!! My mother, daughter, and I had a private tour. We felt like he was part of the family by the end of the day! We would have loved to buy him lunch but he was off to China Town! Oh yeah! I almost forgot…he encouraged us to use the subway and provided us with perfect directions to Katz and back! He even helped us get our tickets and rode along with us for the first few stop!

Andrew did a remarkable job and went above and beyond! He was extremely knowledgeable; we all learned so much from him. It was our first time in NY City and he did everything and more to make sure we knew where to go and how to get there. I highly recommend this tour! We have two teenage boys and they thoroughly enjoyed learning from Andrew as well. Thank you Andrew for making our NY City experience wonderful!

This is my second time visiting the sites except for this time I hired a tour guide. It was well worth every penny. Do yourself a favor and do the same. It’s amazing the history and sacrifice I would have missed. You rock Dragon 6 firefighters!

Thank you Thermo Sage Tours.
