This tour was amazing!
This was an amazingly informative and interesting walking tour. Our guide Avi was brilliant. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in the history of Paris and some of its people.
Met our local tour guide who took us up to the cemetery. She was studying history in Paris and she was really passionate and knowledgable about the history of Paris. I am so glad we saw this graveyard with a tour guide as there were so many more interesting facts that we found out that we just wouldn't have known without their input. I would recommend this tour to anyone - very interesting and highly recommended.
Valuable tour, experienced well knowledge guide. Recommend.
Excellent 2 hour excursion through the Père Lachaise Cemetary. Our guide was very knowledgeable and shared many anecdotes with us. We would highly recommend this company.
It has been a couple of years since we did this tour of Pere Lachaise but we still talk about it. It was one of the most interesting and fun things we did while in Paris. Our guide's name was Fernando, I think and he is Italian. He was very knowledgeable, interesting and made the tour a lot of fun. We could have stayed there all day! There is a lot of fascinating history in Pere Lachaise and it is a don't miss tour. Without a guide you will have a very difficult time finding the graves you are looking for and will miss out on all of the wonderful stories that you will hear. If I ever return to Paris I will probably do it again!
It was a fantastic tour which included a little history, a little humor and even some Old Paris gossip. We had visited Pere Lachaise before, and it was wonderful- However, having a guide really showed us how much we'd missed out on just wandering around admiring the place. The stories, some sad, some happy, some strange- gave a new depth of meaning to Pere Lachaise for us. The tour guide was excellent and his first language is English, a very well read and entertaining man!
I recently visited Paris and explored three cemeteries there, searching for the graves of my favorite composers. I purchased a tour of Pere Lachaise, and was absolutely delighted with it. Our guide, Kate an ex-pat from Ohio was superb in showing us around and explaining the history of the residents we saw. She had a firm grasp on the history of the place and was full of interesting stories and quips. I was sorry when the tour ended! Bravo, Kate! If you plan to visit Pere Lachaise, make sure Kate is your very able guide!
I went on the Pere Lachaise Gravestone Walking Tour yesterday, and absolutely loved it! The guide's name was Feret, and he did an outstanding job, he was both informative and had a great sense of humor. He was an excellent storyteller and seemed to really enjoy his work. His English is also very good, and is easy to understand. The walk is very easy to do for those having endurance concerns. I did stay in the cemetery after the tour to look around some more, but I really found the walking tour was very comprehensive in showing the highlights, and for those that don't have the extra time to spend after the tour are really not missing out on anything. I find that very remarkable for a cemetery of that size. Also of note, a tour is the best way to see this cemetery, finding the tombs, even with a map, is very time consuming and can be difficult.
