This tour was so fun! The tour guide is phenomenal. My favorite part was learning the social history of NYC. He did a great job of relating the concerns of 100+ years ago to those of today. The catacombs were interesting too and the church is beautiful.

Ronnie is a fun and polished tour guide, who kept me engaged for every minute of this tour. I can tell he’s been doing this for quite some time, as his tone is conversational and despite the occasional interruption, he didn’t miss a beat! I especially liked learning about the different types of burial plots (many of which can’t even be seen), the story of Irish immigration to NYC, and the bit of architectural history which applied to the buildings in and around the Basilica, as well as the immediate neighborhood. I highly recommend this tour!

Very boring tour. Instructor just keeps talking and it gets very boring. Half the time they talk about the graveyards.
