My husband and I love historical tours especially in such an old city. This one couldnt be missed. Thoughtfully presented with context and artfully led by our guide we walked through 100s of years in 90 minutes. Definitely cant be missed and was a highlight of our week trip to NYC!

Very informative tour but it’s misleading. Not what I’d call catacombs more like a underground vault.

Catacombs was only 20 minutes of an hour and 30 min tour. Rest of it was tour guide talking; title of tour is very misleading
