We have recommended this tour to a number of our friends. We found it extremely interesting and the guide was wonderful. He was extremely well-versed in the history of the cathedral, the area and the catacombs. Fascinating tour!

Exciting, fun Christmas Eve tour of the Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Catacombs. Was truly a great experience most notably because Tommy was such a great, knowledgeable tour guide. Would definitely recommend!

Very different than most tours. Learned about parts of NYC that I knew nothing about (being NYC born). Tour guide was very good

Had the pleasure of joining Mike's tour and learned quite a bit about the history of the Catholic Church in NYC and the waves of immigrants that left their mark in the area. Mike was very friendly and informative and ran a great 90 minute tour. Most of the time is indoors, some steps but quite manageable. Even as a NY resident I enjoyed learning more about the city's rich history--I will walk by now with a very different appreciation of the history behind the locked doors and brick walls.

Mike definitely knows the History and is well versed in everything on the grounds and property. We went and definitely saw things the Public never actually see unless you go on this tour.

This is a must. The catacombs are amazing. Their history is steeped in the beginning of US history. The tour includes the inside of the church and the pipe organ. Our guide, Brandon, was a blast. There is ALOT of history that was put across very well. This church is a must see. As Brandon said "This church has been all but forgotten".

This was a very interesting and insightful tour with Mike as our guide. In addition to walking through the catacombs and visiting this amazing church, we got information about the settlement of the area and the history of New York City. I hope Tommysnew york continues to develop more of these unusual tours. Mike inspired us to visit other places in the city. Thank you
