WRONG NAME OF THE TOUR

Our tour guide was fantastic HOWEVER, the tour wasn't about "New York Catacombs" as it was described on the Viator website. It was all about the The Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral. In addition, there was not much of walking!!!

Dan was a great tour guide, informative and funny. He welcomed participation by asking questions. We enjoyed all of the tour, but our granddaughter particularly liked the catacombs themselves.

Great tour, something different from the routine. Tour guide was very knowledgeable...enjoyed learning a bit of New York history. If you have been to the catacombs in Rome, this is very different, more what I picture as a mausoleum than catacombs but having learnt the definitions during the tour, I was wrong. :-).

Our tour guide was Dan. He was awesome. He is very knowledgeable, knows how to answer questions when you don't understand something, he provided a very detailed history of manhattan, church, and the neighborhood of where it stands, along with those entombed there. Dan seems to really enjoy his job. I am hard of hearing and he really spoke very clear and loud.

Dan was a great tour guide. It was raining outside but he made it enjoyable with his jokes and strong knowledge of the information he was presenting. He also did a great job of adjusting the information based off of the group’s knowledge! This was fun and a great covid safe activity I will 100% recommend to friends!

Catacombs

Very cool tour. I had no idea there were catacombs in NYC. The tour guide, Dan, was very knowledgeable about the history of the church and neighborhood. The one thing I would suggest improving is going vault-by-vault in the catacombs with the history of the people buried there.
