What to expect
  • Meet at St. Peter's Chapel, and start your exploration of the events of September 11th by learning about the key role this religious refuge played for locals and families. Hear a range of stories about the New York locals and victims who came to St. Paul’s to pray and gather news in the hours that followed the immediate attack. You also get to view some of the many pieces of personal memorabilia, photos, cards and hand-drawn imagery left by visitors as a tribute to the attack victims. Continue your 9/11 visit by heading to the American Express 11 Tears Memorial, a lesser-known landmark not typically seen by site visitors. The memorial is a moving tribute to the 11 employees of this financial firm who lost their lives on September 11th. Head next to the Twin Reflecting Pools, built into the foundation sites where the Twin Towers once stood. You also celebrate the brave firefighters who lost their lives at the Fireman’s Memorial and view the Survivor’s Tree. Finish your September 11th-themed excursion by heading to the top of One World Trade Center. Enjoy pre-reserved admission that guarantees entrance regardless of long lines, plus an independent visit to this observatory in the clouds. Cap off the experience by marveling at the sky-high views of the city from this panoramic viewing site. Your excursion finishes here.

Amazing view
The view from the Observatory is just incredible! The ticket is expensive but it is worth it. The elevatore is a great experience and gives you an exciting start, and the show once ypu arrived will make say woow. 360° view. Highly recommended.

Highlight of our NYC Trip
Aug 2018 • Friends
Robert was an amazing guide and I can't recommend him enough! I was deeply touched by his personal connections to 9/11 and the World Trade Center and the way in which he shared them. It was very interesting to hear some of the details about both the events leading up to 9/11, the day of, and after that I had either forgotten about or had never heard. This tour brought back the emotions of the day as we watched it unfold on TV. Our only regret was that we did this tour toward the end of our trip to NYC so we didn't have the opportunity to take his other tours!

Jul 2018 • Couples
We had the tour with Robert R. Yonskie. His style, passion, and compassion were what made the tour for us. A story can be told, or it can be portrayed in a way that pulls you in, gets you thinking, and pulls you along. Robert pulled us right in!

Excellent - great views and amazing building
Jul 2018 • Family
After being in NYC on 9/11 finally getting a chance to visit this building and observe the view was breathtaking. The tour, building and memorial park are a great tribute to those that lost their lives. The building itself is amazing with very friendly and informative staff, great features as well as a good coffee shop! Would recommend to anyone visiting NYC

Emotional & Informative
Jun 2018 • Family
I am so glad that we included this tour on our trip to NYC. All of my children were born post-9/11. This tour gave them in important context for their world today. The best part was Robert's focus on the resilience of the city and the many miracles that took place during the tragedy.

Amazing Day with Robert Yoskie
Jun 2018 • Family
Robert's knowledge of the events and grounds of 911 were breath-taking. He put my family in tears several times. His personal experiences and stories of his family and the events that took place that day were unforgettable. We are already looking at other tours that are offered for our next trip.

Robert was so friendly, knowledgeable and so much fun!! Excellent Tour. I had visited the Twin Towers in my thirties with my husband and two kids. It was hard to see them missing, but really enjoyed the tour and museum. Also went up to the top of the new One World Observatory.

Interesting and informative tour
Apr 2018 • Family
Robery Yonskie gave a very informative and engaging tour. I enjoyed his friendly, sincere and animated personality. He provided insightful, interesting and relevant information in a fun manner that wasn't boring to both the young and old. I would consider doing other tours with him in the future.

The only constructive criticism I would give is the administration side of the tour. The "office" kept interrupting the tour with calls that Rob had to take, cutting him off mid-sentence multiple times.

Thanks,
Helen
