Nyc catacombs tour

Extremely interesting tour with Tommy.... he is exceptionally knowledgeable about the history of the area and, in particular, the Old St Patrick’s Church, its priests, and residents. A truly moving tribute to those interred in the cemetery and in the catacombs.

Interesting historical site in a great neighborhood to explore. Our host Kyle was a first rate tour guide: knowledgeable, energetic, and amusing. This is a definite for those who like an esoteric "off the beaten path" experience.

This was an interesting tour, one few New Yorkers even know about. Being able to see and hear the organ on 3/8 was pretty greats.

Brittany was great- sad souvenir experience

It was an amazing tour. Our guide Brittany was extremely knowledgeable and lively. This tour would have been a been a 5 star experience if they hadn't sold me empty bottles when I bought holy water...
icon Response from Host , Mar 2020
So sorry for disappointment in the gift purchase. You are correct. We should have been more specific in the description of the holy water container. But we are thrilled you appreciated our guide's efforts.

I loved our guide Brittany, she was crazy knowledgeable and lively. It was a wonderful tour! The only reason I didn't give this experience 5 stars is because I bought 3 holy waters as souvenirs and they were all just empty bottles.

I just responded above to your disappointment with the souvenir purchase. Again, I apologize.

Sadly, the Church was having a funeral followed by Mass. I wish we had been told we were not going to be able to see the Church interior including the organ. We would have rescheduled.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2020
So sorry you were disappointed. We are often not told until the last minute that the working church is put off limits to us for tour.
