What People Are Saying About One World Trade Center

It was well worth it to experience the view from the Observation Deck.

The personal touch in the stories of those involved in the design and construction were good and set the tone for the story behind the scenes. Some of it, like the focus wheel, was overkill and too much. Beautiful view of the harbour.

The guide is very personable and knowledgable.

But too much standing up. Maybe shorten the tour. Kids got bored and seniors tired.
