Exploring Pere Lachaise Cemetery, the largest cemetery in Paris, without a guide risks missing some famous graves and background on those buried here. This small-group tour ensures you get the most from this vast cemetery by covering the must-sees and some hidden gems. View the tombs of Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison, and other figures; use secret shortcuts to see more than you might otherwise; and hear the often-tragic stories of the dead.

Pere Lachaise is one of the best-known cemeteries—and also one of its largest. At 108 acres (44 hectares), the grounds can be difficult to navigate alone. Going with a guide ensures you find and learn about the cemetery’s most famous residents, from Jim Morrison to Edith Piaf. In addition to offering little-known facts and anecdotes, your guide takes you through hidden groves and shortcuts often missed by visitors.

Alberto was fabulous! I’ve been there before, but he was the best guide! He was fun, knowledgeable, personable, passionate about the cemetery & it’s history. He had stories & answered every question!

Did a well priced (ie: low) 2hr tour of the cemetery and it was great. Going back by myself this week. Most tours visit all the same graves so I'd avoid paying some of those high costs

This beautiful, leafy green space is jammed full of samplings of architectural styles and details. Elegant and occasionally excessive,it reveals the social and political history of Paris through its residents. To be fully appreciated a guide is a must.

Do not try and find the famous grave sites on your own or if you do you will be frustrated. Try and hire a guide it will say you time and headaches.
