Lower Manhattan Walking Tour & One World Observatory
Walk through Lower Manhattan taking in landmarks such as the 9/11 Memorial before zipping to the top of the One World Observatory for unforgettable view of New York.
After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a scenic drive through Lower Manhattan, finally arriving at Battery Park. With the Statue of Liberty in the distance, you will begin a guided walking tour, passing icons of the Financial District, such as the Wall Street Bull.
Upon reaching the 9/11 Memorial, you will have time to contemplate this tribute of remembrance and honor to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. The names of the victims are inscribed on bronze panels along the edge of the two memorial reflecting pools, which sit within the footprints of the former Twin Towers. It’s a powerful reminder of the events of 9/11; one you will not soon forget.
You will then enter the One World Observatory, the tallest building in the United States. It soars to a height of 1,776 feet in honor of the year 1776, when America was founded. After watching a short movie about how the building was conceived and constructed, you will zip upward to the 102nd floor in a high-speed elevator. The ride takes less than a minute and it’s exhilarating. So is the 360-degree view of New York City from the top of the observatory.
In time, you will descend to ground level and meet your coach for drive back to the pier via a scenic route.
