We did two walking tours with Uncle Sam's, the 9/11 WTC tour, and the Edgar Allen Poe tour in Greenwich Village. The WTC tour was very informative and very moving, excellent tour and tour guide, I wrote notes and took pics for my sister (teacher) and her class which they really liked. The Greenwich tour was interesting, the guide was also very good. We rented an apartment with Uncle Sam's (good way to stay in NYC short term) so our tours were complimentary with the apartment.
1.Uncle Sam's New York Tours : Wall Street Walking Tours and Ground Zero Tours In case you're thinking that you could see the same sights by walking around on your own (because prior to the tour I was thinking that same thing) - not so, by any means. We were able to see and hear about things that we would never have found on our own. All in all, the reason I went to NYC was to see exactly what I saw - to get a glimpse of the people and places affected, and those that tried to help. The tour itself was remarkable and we three are SO glad we took the tour. Our tour guide (Kevin) did an excellent job with our two-hour walking tour of Ground Zero today. He was very informative and he also told us some interest stories about the many heroes from 9/11. I was with my 18-year-old son and 25-year-old nephew and they both enjoyed the tour too!
