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.
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.
My wife and I took this tour and found it was amazing. Our tour guide Farret was very knowledgeable about the history and background to many of the graves in this cemetery. He was able to take us to grave of interest for the group we were in. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in the history and beauty that is found there.

Highly recommend this tour, it was the best part of our trip to Paris by far. There's no way you could navigate this place on your own (beautiful, but enormous) but our guide Zach made the whole thing so interesting, easy, funny, and creepy. A great guide, he told some stories we'll never forget!
The tour in English is a must to get the most out of your visit. Our guide Kate was very knowledgable and provided fun facts about those buried in the cemetery. She also expertly guided us to Jim Morrison, Edith Piaf and many other graves. Highly recommend this tour if you are going to visit this special cemetery.
This tour was just fantastic. We had 2 hours gentle walking filled with history, politics, music, art, and current affairs from our truly brilliant guide, Avi. Pere Lachaise is enormous and we could never have even found the graves we saw, nor learned the stories behind them without our wonderful guide. Avi was genuinely friendly, waiting patiently for members of our small group, especially my husband, and answering all our questions. I would urge everyone to take this tour and pray that you get Avi as your guide. It was worth every euro.

Me and my wife were thoroughly pleased with Kate's level of expertise in the subject and guiding us through this place of peace.
In addition, Kate's sense of humor, depth of knowledge and how she delivered the information was very good, understandable and enjoyable. I highly recommend this tour of the Pere Lachaise cemetery and in particular Kate for providing the tour!
This was an unexpected gem during our trip to Paris. Excellent tour guide with lots of stories and details to share. You would never be able to walk through this place on your own without getting lost!
First, the cemetery is nearly impossible to navigate, let alone if you want to do it in a timely manner. Having a tour guide is essential, but having a tour guide from this particular group was invaluable. Our guide was Davor sp? from city wonders and he was incredible. He knew the place like the back of his hand, and the knowledge he had about these sites and others in Paris was astounding. He even spent an extra hour and a half with us, sincerely happy to share all that he knew. It was wonderful to be led by a person that has such passion for the history he is telling. Truly, I've had no other tour where I've learned so much.
After attempting to navigate Pere Lachaise on our own this was a much needed tour. A must do!
Another wonderful guide and Viator tour. This is a huge cemetery and we clambered over most of it looking at the highlights. Again, it gives a great overview of a Paris and the history of the city.
My husband and I were lucky enough to be the only two people booked on this tour. It was fabulous, our guide was extremely good. I know this is a tour you can do yourself, but having someone show you the layout, take you to graves of notable interest and be able to answer your questions is a must - the place is vast and you could spend all day just looking for one grave - and still not find it!!!
Davor was a superb guide - informed, personable, and a wonderful storyteller. This was a highlight of my week in Paris.
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.
