My adult daughter and I booked a tour several weeks ago to visit the 9/11 Memorial. We were fortunate to end up in the tour given by John Saponaro. John was poised, sensitive to the difficult subject matter and yet honest and informative. He absolutely knew his material and the sharing of his own personal story on that fateful day made everything seem even more real. What really stood out was his respect for the area, those who perished and those who visit family and friends at the memorial. One of the best guided tours I have ever taken.

Went on the 9/11 Ground Zero Tour a few days ago. Tour started promptly and we were off w/ our guide Tauren. She began by talking briefly about her personal experience on Sept 11th. I was living in Phoenix, Arizona and had no friends/relatives involved so her perspective as a New Yorker made it instantly more real to me. The talking points on the walk were informative and she had various photos to bring it even more to life. She is very personable and answered everyone’s questions. Would highly recommend Tauren as a guide via this tour. She stayed with us until we entered the 911 Memorial. Great experience.

Abby was an excellent guide. She was very knowledgeable of the site since she grew up in the surrounding neighborhood. She is a very personable guide and well spoken. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to take this tour.

John is a knowledgeable, personable guide. Great job accomodating a diverse audience. Reccomend the morning tours. We took the 10:30 tour and area was getting crowded as we finished at noon.

Ray Victor provided an extraordinary personal dimension to his tour of Ground Zero, making for an unforgettable experience, as well as a perfect introduction to the Museum and Observatory. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning about the events of that day from someone who was there..
