learn, laugh and see cool things on this tour

Dan the tour guide is awesome. He gave an interesting history of the church itself and the broader political context of new york city. I found his political and historical commentary humorous and very agreeable. I learned a lot, laughed a lot, and got to see old and colorful things. It was a great experience. Definitely worth the ticket price.

Looking at all the details in the catacombs. Just the atmosphere of walking thru in the dark with a little candle

The guide was the best as he gave a great history lesson of early New York. The catacombs themselves were not that interesting, but the history lesson was fantastic.

Great tour. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and personable. His presentation covered so much more than the catacombs and the church.
