I had an amazing time following our guide Davor. The group is very small so we had good interaction along the way. During the tour we visited celebrity tombs as well as the less known ones that have very interesting stories. If I were there by myself I'd never have guessed those intriguing stories. Definitely recommend it to those who are curious about the history of Pere Lachaise, and those who want to explore Paris from a different perspective.
We had a great tour with Avi. He provided a wealth of information in an interesting way. He took us by all the major graves and told us about the people/graves, etc. A great way to visit Pere Lachaise. I'd highly recommend this tour.
This tour was the highlight of my Paris visit. The 2 hour tour easily covers the history of the cemetery as well as the stories of some of the people buried there. This is a must for anyone wanting to experience something different in Paris.
Very good tour if you're interested in where some 'celebrities 'are buried. Well narrated.
We really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. This cemetary is enourmous and I don't think we would have found any of the graves of the famous people if we went by ourselves. You also get the added benefit of all of the stories of many other people buried in this cemetary, as well as the history and legends of the cemetary itself. It's a two hour tour, so may want to plan it for the morning.
We enjoyed the tour, the history, and the many stories our guide had to tell. Though it is possible to see the cemetery without the guide, I do not think it would have been as richly fulfilling.
Tour guide Alberto was very informative and very entertaining. The cemetery is amazing. Aside from the impressive graves of important people, it has a very calming and relaxing atmosphere, especially in the old and shaded areas.
Avi, our guide, was amazing. Such interesting stories. This was a last minute purchase while we were already in Paris but was the highlight of our trip. If we had time, we would have looked into other trips with this same company.
Our tour guide Avi is an art history professor, so he was so knowledgeable! He made each grave come alive! Wonderful!
We had a wonderful tour of Pere Lachaise on August 4, 2016! Avi was our tour guide, and he was terrific very knowledgable about the different people buried in this sprawling cemetery, and about the cemetery itself. The tour lasted two and a half hours, but you never felt the time there's so much to see and learn about in Pere Lachaise.
I highly recommend this walking tour I very much wanted to see the graves of Heloise and Abelard and also Oscar Wilde, and they were the highlights for me. Jim Morrison's grave is a big draw, though, and there are plenty of other famous and notable people to hear about. I've used Viator before, abroad and at home in the US, and I haven't been disappointed yet. Avi was a particularly good tour guide, though, so hopefully you get him!
