This was easily one of the top highlights of our Paris trip this July. We took a guided tour of the cemetery and our guide - Alessandro I think his name was - was not only very knowledgeable but also very enthusiastic and charming. Aside from telling us about the rich histories of the cemetery and the famous and not-so-famous graves, he also entertained us with charming little anecdotes of the cemetery. All together, it was a great tour and if we visit Paris again next summer, we will definitely take another guided tour and preferably with the same guide!
Excellent. Informative guide, right amount. Of interaction with the group a famous out experience.
Alberto, our guide, did a wonderful job satifying all the members of his group. He asked everyone whose grave they would like to visit and off we went. He explained a lot of history of Paris and the foundation of the cemetery. We visited the final resting places of such people as Jim Morrison my daughter's request, Oscar Wilde, Chopin, Maria Callas, and Edith Piaf, Moliere and many more. This is one of my favorite attractions in Paris. Don't just stroll through the cemetery, book the tour and learn
This tour on Thursday September 10 was excellent, and our guide Harve'? set just the right tone. He dedicated extra time and effort to make sure that my visit to the grave of Marcel Proust was a meaningful experience for me. My whirlwind tour of London, Paris, and Rome included many fabulous and fascinating moments, but The Pere LaChaise Gravestone Waling Tour is what I'll remember the most. The cemetery's history is intriguing, and the gravestones and setting are beautiful. I urge every tourist to carve out time amid the bustle and sign up for this marvelous tour. Thank you.
A superb tour: thoroughly well informed, thoughtfully designed tour. Highly recommended!
Excellent tour guide Ruta from CityWalks Tours. Very knowledgeable about the residents within the cemetary - really knew her way around. Could not have done this tour without guide. Seen so many famous people's graves and learned some history along the way. Highly recommend
perfect. I've been to pere lachaise before but this time was exceptional. our italian guide really knew what he was doing. great knowledge and fun. Don't visit pere lachaise without viator team, it won't be the same.
My partner and I signed up for the tour of the Pere LaChaise tour since we figured it would be valuable in such a vast space to have a guide. Alberto was incredibly insightful and informative and the tour was entertaining, humorous, and thoroughly enjoyable. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone!!
Avi, our guide was absolutely fantastic! He was very knowledgeable about the cemetery and had many stories that brought the people buried there to life no pun intended. A very interesting tour, bring your best walking shoes and get set for a most enjoyable time
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!
