Great fun! Not only learned about the history of St. Peter’s but also about NY during the 1800’s and the effects immigration had on the city. Have visited NY often and was looking for something off the beaten path. Our tour guide Dan was upbeat and knowledgeable. Thanks for a great time!

We’ve been living in this area for 20 years and had never done this tour. It was amazing! We didn’t know so much rich history could be condensed in such a small place.
Our tour guide, Rony, was the best: extremely knowledgeable and fun!
Even our 17 y/o loved it.
Don’t miss it!

I suppose a lot of people don't know about the catacombs beneath St. Peter, so it was a surprise. While not as exhaustive as catacombs in Europe, this was still enjoyable. We also enjoyed the tour of the church and the old organ, which was very cool. I think the tour did a great job showing the history and interesting things, while being respectful, along with the church and its history. All in all it was worth it and quite an enjoyable evening.

Excellent Tour of old St Patricks. So much interesting history in NYC. Tour guide was extremely knowledgable and gave a lot history not of only the catacombs and church but history of the surrounding area and the turmoil that existed during the early 1800s.
