I purchased this tour as a Christmas present for my boyfriend. Our tour guide was amazing and very knowledgeable. The church itself is beautiful and we learned so much information. I would definitely recommend this trip. Amazing experience from the beginning to the end.

Dan was a great tour guide. It was raining outside but he made it enjoyable with his jokes and strong knowledge of the information he was presenting. He also did a great job of adjusting the information based off of the group’s knowledge! This was fun and a great covid safe activity I will 100% recommend to friends!

Catacombs

Very cool tour. I had no idea there were catacombs in NYC. The tour guide, Dan, was very knowledgeable about the history of the church and neighborhood. The one thing I would suggest improving is going vault-by-vault in the catacombs with the history of the people buried there.

The tour was amazing. Walking through the halls of such a beautiful historic monument, you experience the lives of those who wandered the halls 200 years ago and the few that remain there in their resting place. Dan the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the cathedral and was very fun and energetic! A must do if your in NY.

One Great History Lesson!

I absolutely loved this tour. The tour guide - Dan - was so knowledgeable about the catholic religion as well as the history in that area of Manhattan. I think what I loved the most is the history of the church and how when it burned down, all the paperwork was lost and now it is really not known (besides the grave markers) who is buried in the cemetery and the catacombs.

This tour was great and had lots of history pre catacombs. Dan is a gifted storyteller and he made sure everyone felt at home. We are not catholic but the history was still really interesting and NYC focused. The way Dan was able to weave in current events and pop culture references was GENIUS. ❤️❤️
