Enjoy this fascinating 90 minute group tour that introduces you to all of the secrets of the Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral. Enter off limits areas like the two walled cemeteries and an exclusive experience in the CATACOMBS beneath the Old Cathedral. For over 200 years, the CATACOMBS of the Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral has served as the final resting place for the departed. This unique and historic place has been a silent witness to the many struggles and accomplishments of prominent New York Catholics. It is where bishops rest beside noteworthy New Yorkers who have played defining roles in Catholic, New York and American history.

Tommy have a wonderful tour. A lot of unknown history. We loved it and would recommend this tour. Wear comfy shoes as a little bit is outdoors.

Great tour and history of the church and the area. Highly recommend this tour. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and seeing the organ in the church was an added bonus.

This was so much more than we thought. Kyle was amazing, funny, thorough, knowledgeable and you could tell he very much cared about the church, it’s histories and those entombed there. Amazing history and such a beautiful place. We also got to see the pipe organ which is awe inspiring. The catacombs themselves are not expansive, but there are some very cool characters down there that helped shatour.more

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 intour.more
