The tour was the best I have been on in New York City. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the Catacombs, Old St Patrick's Church, the neighborhood and the history of it all. II learned so much. I am looking forward to going again with my husband. It seems we are so out of touch with our past history. This tour sparked my curiosity about the Irish Catholics and early New York City. I want to learn more. I cannot praise it enough!

My wife and I decided to do this largely on a whim - it turned out to be a great idea! The tour guide, Mike, was both funny and knowledgeable and we learned a lot about an area we'd otherwise never have gone to. Worth doing if you have the time. Definitely a highlight of our time here in NYC.

A hidden treasure of New York City. The Catacomb’s by Candlelight Tour gives another glimpse into the history and transitions as NYC grew. Our guide, Mike, was excellent! He knew his material, shared his knowledge with humor, and patiently answered every question from the group. We would recommend this one to anyone who’s done the “tourist” places and wants to do more.

Completely waste of time. It's an hour and a half tour, it's been 70 minutes and guide keeps talking non-stop. We have done the cementary and a quick look to the church still waiting to get to the catacombes.... don't waste your time.

This was a last minute idea and what a pleasant surprise. Ronny was a wonderful guide. We learned a lot about the early history of Catholic communities in New York, and the neighborhood where the basilica is located. Ronny had a relaxed and humorous style that made it so enjoyable and interesting. The catacombs themselves were only a part of the experience. If you want to do something different, it's only 90 minutes and you learn something. Especially if you like graveyards and cemeteries (who knew there was a difference?).
