Paying respect to a classmate from high school. No matter who you are or where you are from you need to visit the reflecting pools when in NYC. Words do not speak the feelings. Especially when you find the name of an old friend.

We just had Jim for our tour guide and he was excellent! He was obviously a native New Yorker and was able to give a very authentic account of 911. I would highly recommend this tour. He was a great combo of interesting and funny!

Our tour guide Debbie Mason was exceptional! She was personable and provided great information. She was even able to provide a first-hand account of that fateful day. Highly recommend this tour and Debbie if you have a choice for a guide.
