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 sha

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!

Hernan V, Jan 2020

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!

Kelly E, Jan 2020

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 in
