New York City: Catacombs by Candlelight
- Small group
- Duration: 1.5 hours
My sister and I went to New York and saw an ad about the catacombs tour. We decided to try it out and were able to get tickets for the next day. It was easy to buy the tickets online. Leo was our guide for our tour and he did an excellent job. So many interesting people are buried there and I loved hearing about the history behind their stories. The tour takes about 90 minutes but is not stressful or difficult to do. The cathedral is beautiful and I loved learning the differences between a cemetery and a graveyard, and why this church is a basilica. Very interesting tour and well worth the money.
Dan our tour guy was fenomenal he discussed every detail and showed us around it was a great experience, he made out experience unforgettable. I will definitely go back with my kids So that they can learn about our Catholic Church, our anscestors great food New York City wine makers for us the adults :) etc because you will learn things I never imagine or thought I will hear it thank you Dan. You don’t have to tip the tour staff but you guys should they deserve it :)
Our English tour would have been cancelled today if it hadn’t been for Stefan who was taking the German tour stepping in. He was fantastic, switching between German and English. The tour was interesting and informative. Even though we have visited NY before, we still saw things we had not seen before and learnt new and interesting facts. Well done Stefan and thank you to the German ladies for allowing us to join your tour - Danke
Dan, our tour guide, was so wonderful! Incredibly knowledgeable, engaging, and clearly enjoys his job & teaching people about the wonders of NYC. The tour itself was short and cute, but it definitely left me wanting to do more tours. Highly recommend.
Provided you with great information in an entertaining way. The guides were informative well beyond the scope of telling what it was. I enjoy the historical perspective with a touch of humour added.
