    I really enjoyed the tour. This is going to (maybe) sound strange. Let me explain -- It was a day of good emotion and reminder, as it caused me to re-live the day. The pictures shown and informational details provided were authentic to what really happened that day and in the USA. It will provide very real description and accurate information about that day -- and not just tour-operator guesses. This is an excellent lead-in to the Museum, which you will be able to do on your own. When done, you will have either re-lived the day's feelings, importance and shock or have a very good idea of what authentically happened that day.
