This tour was well worth it rain or shine. Our tour guide, Dan, was extremely insightful and personable. I love when tour guides provide background stories to historical figures, so if you get Dan, you’re in for a treat! It’s a fun and COVID safe thing to do this Halloween season, or at anytime. I would take the tour again!

Extremely interesting tour with Tommy.... he is exceptionally knowledgeable about the history of the area and, in particular, the Old St Patrick’s Church, its priests, and residents. A truly moving tribute to those interred in the cemetery and in the catacombs.
