What you'll do

Our tour begins in the Financial District, New York City’s real heart, some say. Once a small Dutch settlement, it’s now home to billion-dollar deals and global financial powerhouses.

Our tour begins in the Financial District, New York City’s real heart, some say. Once a small Dutch settlement, it’s now home to billion-dollar deals and global financial powerhouses. As you walk Wall Street with your guide, you’ll see and learn about the New York Stock Exchange, the Federal Reserve Bank, and much more.

At the 9/11 Memorial, pause to reflect and admire this tribute to the lives lost, including two large fountains symbolically set in the footprints of the Twin Towers. Hear heroic tales of first responders. Marvel at the architecture of Freedom Tower and the Oculus, built from the ashes of Ground Zero.

Next, we’ll head to Battery Park, where you’ll discover a kernel of NYC history few know: the ticker-tape parades honored at the Canyon of Heroes. This is also a wonderful viewpoint for the Statue of Liberty, seen from across the bay. As you enjoy the views, your guide will entertain you with stories about New York’s most famous landmark, the perfect end to our tour of Lower Manhattan.

Great learning experience
I learned so much! Frank had a fun way of making all the information interesting. Plus he knew practically everything about the area. He welcomed questions and actually cared if we heard and understood. The pace of the tour was slow enough for everyone to keep up.

First Class Tour
Absolutely loved the morning spent with Jessica. She was a delight & full of knowledge from the moment we met her until cheerio time. It was clear she knew her history very well but what impressed me was the way she delivered & shared the information with her group. Her voice was clear & nice to listen to , she made sure that the whole group were all getting the most from the tour - paying attention to the younger members of our group too.

It's the first time my other half and myself have visited NYC. We had such a great day on our guided tour with Lyndsey. Thank you so much for an amazing day.

FAQs

How much walking is there?

We cover about 2 miles in Lower Manhattan at a leisurely pace. If mobility is an issue, please arrange for a private tour.

Does this tour go inside the 9/11 Museum?

This tour covers the 9/11 Memorial but does not go inside the 9/11 Museum. If you’re interested in seeing the museum as part of your visit to Ground Zero, we recommend our 9/11 Memorial and Museum Insider Tour.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We understand plans change. You can always change your tour 24 hours or more before you tour. We offer a 100% refund up to 24 hours prior to your tour start time. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

When should I get there?

Plan to show up 15 minutes early. The tour starts promptly, and you may not be able to catch up if you arrive late.

What if it rains?

Our tours run rain or shine, so please check the local forecast to plan. In rare cases when we have to cancel for extreme weather, we’ll offer you the chance to reschedule or give a full refund.

Are gratuities included?

Tips are always appreciated but never expected. They’re a great way to tell your guide they did an awesome job and show your appreciation.
