911 Tragedy/ Memorial - The tour on the grounds of where the twin towers once stood was moving. Parker was the tour guide and his presentation was excellent. He used large photos as visual aids as he explained particular experiences on this horrific attack on American soil. Thank you Parker for the using your teacher hand for us tourists 😊! The museum was emotional as I looked at the videos and photos of the 911 victims.

Insightful and Well Done - Insightful tour of what 9/11 and its aftermath was like for a local resident. Parker was everything you would want in a tour guide. He was articulate, personable, well prepared, offered countless opportunities for questions, and was tuned in to travelers’ needs.

Inspirational, informative, heart breaking, amazing, wondrous. The 911 Ground Zero tour was all of that and more. - The 911 ground zero tour was amazing and so much more than a tour of the actual sight. It delved into not only the event itself but also the strides that were taken to rebuild in a most memorable way from the architecture to the landscaping. Our tour guide Ray R was wonderful and so knowledgeable since he’s been doing the tours for more than 20 years. His passion for the project was evident. I would highly recommend this tour.

Certainly Worth the Time! - The tour was very well thought out and executed. Our tour guide provided great detail and specific information on the history of the World Trade Center. The tour guide did provide a few dad jokes, which could have been withheld, but a great time overall.
