Our guide, Linda, was very knowledgable and passionate about the cemetery, and told us stories of the interesting people who were buried in Pere LaChaise. She asked if there were any specific graves we would like to see, then tailored the walk around our needs. A leiurely walk around the cemetery.
two hours with guide Kate providing facts, fun and a general sense of knowledge about historical and sometimes notorious figures buried here. Book this tour it is excellent and Kate is the best.
The tour was great, I highly recommend it!.
Kate, our guide, was awesome! Very interesting and amusing. We went on several walking tours during our stay, and out of all guides, she was by far the best!
Kate was an unbelieveable guide. Very knowledgeable and personable. She has the the perfect personality and education for these types of tours. I will recommend to my family and friends. I will tell them to ask for Kate.

I am now finding that Viator tours are staffed with personal, professional and truly knowledgeable guides. This is the third one that I have taken.
Our guides was truly first rate both in explanation about the cemetery and the individuals interred there. I would strongly take another tour with her, as she made the experience both fascinating and memorable.
The guide was very good. She had great knowledge about the cemetery and about Paris in general.
Interesting tour. I don't think walking around the cemetery would've been nearly as cool without a guided tour. The cemetery itself is really pretty, but knowing the history of it and the people buried there made a big difference.
Alexandra was wonderful, very engaging and couldn't have been more informative or helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience, and Alexandra organised and saw us on our way to our next port of call. Would highly recommend this tour, cemetery was beautiful.
great tour, very interesting and informative and Alberto is a great guide
Our guide Patrice was EXCELLENT and I would recommend this tour and his knowledge and humour in a heartbeat!
Very interesting to learn about the history of the graves. Our guide was very pleasant and enjoyed talking about the interesting people buried there.
A beautiful setting with such interesting stories amongst the graves. To truly get the feel for Pere Lachaise, you definitely need a guided tour. Our guide was awesome- patient while we took many many photos and very knowledgeable about the history of the cemetery, including its residents. Book it!
GERAT.. Patrice was a wonderful tour guide ..don't miss this one but be ready yo waly!!
Excellent guide who was knowledgeable and conveyed the history of how Pere LaChaise evolved. We passed many people trying to go through the cemetery with a small map that listed the locations of graves, and we were so glad we had decided to take this well guided tour rather than go on our own. One could spend days wandering around, and our guide selected routes that revealed information we would never have gotten otherwise. Terrific tour - excellent value.
This tour was great!! Ari was a knowledgeable and personable guide. We saw all of the more famous graves and Ari provided excellent background on how they came to this particular final resting place. We also learned the history of Paris cemeteries in general. There were 16 people in our group. We had to wait occasionally on a few stragglers, but that is to be expected. In all, a great afternoon and a great tour.
Our tour guide was wonderful and quite knowledgeable with stories and the lives of each grave we visited and others not far from our walking track. The walk was planned so we wouldn't walk up hill which was helpful as the tour takes a couple of hours. Our guide was easy to find, right outside the metro station with a sign and helpful directions were given after the tour had ended on how to get back to a near by metro station.
Fantastic tour! Guide, Alberto, was excellent and provided us with so much interesting information. Marvellous afternoon which passed in a flash! Would definitely recommend this tour.
We had a great guide, Avi, who was very knowledgeable. He took us to an intriguing variety of gravesites. The trek was well planned and his narrative interesting. We had ominous thunder, but no real rain, so that added a great spooky atmosphere. I was trying to do some research as well, so kept having to catch up because I stopped and took too many pictures - but Avi did give time for some photos. The tour was generally well-paced and very interesting.
Really enjoyed this walking tour - the cemetery is so large that without a guide you would miss alot
I joined a large group of 16 people in early September for this tour.
We were expertly led by Avi, a knowledgeable and friendly young man who was fluent in English and French.
The registration process was very simple and clear. It is a good idea that you advise participants to arrive 15 minutes early; 2 people still arrived late. Nevertheless we started close to the 3:00 starting time and filled the next 2 hours with wonderful information about Paris, Pere LaChaise and the interesting people buried there. It was one of my favorite experiences in Paris!
I highly recommend this beautiful and serene tour! We were a small group - about 8 people - and our guide made our walk through the cemetery unforgettable! He had a lot of information to share about famous and not so famous people buried in Pere LaChaise and answered any questions that visitors had (and the questions were quite a few!) I great tour to make while one ponders life and death... And a very picturesque one too!
