This was fun! Tour guide, Dan, did a great job and throughly explained the historical information. You can explore the catacombs at your own pace. Highly recommend if in NYC.

Dan was the best tour guide! He was enthusiastic, and he knows all of the history of Catholicism in the area. I was raised Catholic and have family in NYC, and I never knew about the history of The Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral. I didn’t know it had Basilica status, but I know now thanks to Dan! The history is so interesting especially what we learned about Pierre Toussaint! This is a must do tour!

Loved hearing the history of the church. Our guide was very knowledgeable. The online review said a maximum of 15 persons only would be attending, there were 21 of us so it was a little difficult to distance from each other. Also was disappointed that we did not get to see the chapel because the wedding was going on.
