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

Tour guide Dan was knowledgeable and entertaining. Tour was interesting for myself and my 11 year old

I need to advise that you need NOT to take children ( under 13 years old ) because the catacombs tour is not appropriate.

Our guide, Dan, was very knowledgeable. He told us stories of the people who were buried at the cathedral, along with great history lessons. It was really interesting! I'm so glad we took the tour!

Nothing violent or frightening even though it's about death I went on a catacombs tour in another big city and that one was intense/creepy. This is a New York history tour with a Catholic focus, especially this cathedral and the Catholics who are buried there. I recommend it if you're interested in NY history, Catholicism, and/or cemeteries.

Absolutely fantastic. Tommy, the guide, is wonderful. Beyond the scope of NYC history, is the history of the cathedral and the parish. What you will see and the places you will go is amazing.

Very professional tour. Visiting St. Patrick's Basillica was amazing. The tour takes you through the cemetery while learning about all the famous people who are buried there. Inside the church every section of the building has so much history and you learn about all of it. Going up the stairs to see the famous organ is amaziing. Not only do you learn of its history but you get to view the workings of this magnificient instrument. Great tour that covers so much within an hour and a half.
