After departing your hotel, your private guide will take you to the 9/11 Museum and Memorial. The 9/11 Museum honors those who died during the attacks on September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. The memorial also honors the heroes who rushed to the scene to help on that fateful day. Following the memorial, your private guide will take you to 9/11 Museum, the principal institution concerned with exploring the implications of the events of 9/11.
- Please note that for parties over four guests the guide cannot lecture inside the National 9/11 Museum, so prior to entering guide will give commentary, but will answer one on one questions while inside.
Following your morning at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, you’ll head to the Statue of Liberty to see what immigrants first saw upon their arrival to America. The Statue of Liberty is a symbol for freedom and democracy. Experience the breathtaking statue up close and personal and take in the magnificent views from along the water.
Alongside the Statue of Liberty sits Ellis Island. Ellis Island opened in 1892 and was the entry point for European immigrants for more than 60 years. Over 12 million people passed through the halls that now make up the Ellis Island Immigration Museum. During your tour, you will experience the Great Hall as the new Americans and search for your family surname on the American Immigrant Wall of Honor. The wall features over 600,000 names of immigrants who passed through Ellis Island, making it the longest wall of names in the world.
A stop for lunch will be added during the tour.
