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.

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.

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!

Had a brilliant tour with Alberto. He was personable, very knowledgeable, friendly, with a wry sense of humour. We were really pleased that the group was quite small ( we passed a couple of other huge tour groups), and this made it feel more individual. The two hours just whizzed by, A very interesting and thought provoking tour.

Alberto provided a great tour of Pere LaChaise Cemetery including the history of the site and guided us to many fascinating points of interest. The cemetery is enormous and we could not have fully appreciated this unique cemetery without his assistance.

Terrific. Began on time. Our guide, sorry I can't remember his name, was knowledgeable as well as entertaining. I have told a number of people about the tour and have recommended it highly. I would rate it a 5 star.

What a fascinating place, it is both an historical site and also a current working cemetery. Our guide was friendly and also informative. He asked our small group if there were any particular graves of interest to them and he ensured that our tour included those graves.
The Cemetery covers such a vast area that having a guide ensured that we saw as much as possible in the time frame. You could spend a week exploring and still not see it all.
Be prepared with good walking shoes as it is hilly and quite uneven walking in parts. The major surprise was how green the area is, thanks to the 5,300 mature trees which give the most wonderful shade and atmosphere to this place.

We took the tour with Paulina in June 2014. We both enjoyed it very much thanks to Paulina's interest and knowledge. Couldn't have wished for a better guide. The cemetery itself is very interesting, and well worth a visit if you want something a little bit out of the main-stream Paris experience.

Excellent value. Very interesting; a guided tour is the way to go during one's first visit to the cemetery. (Next time I'll visit this peaceful location, and walk around independently.)

Our tour guide, Alberto, was great. He was funny, patient, and super knowledgeable. We were able to customize our tour so we could swing by graves we were interested in. He had a map in his mind that allowed us to cut all across the cemetery. The cemetery was so beautiful and rich in history!

Choosing to visit the cemetery with a guide was a great decision. He was knowledgeable about the history of the location and, of course, was able to show us the way to find the graves we wanted to see. As well he showed us many other famous residents. The rain really added to the atmosphere of our visit.
