Catacombs by Candlelight

This is a 90 minute walking tour that takes you into the off-limits areas of the Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral. This church was the original Saint Patrick’s Cathedral back in 1815 before the larger cathedral in Midtown took the seat of the Bishop in 1879.

Pull Out All the Stop

A one of a kind immersive musical experience that brings the Henry Erben Organ into the 21st Century. Part organ recital and walking tour through the instrument while it’s in motion, we will end with a very special and exclusive presentation of the catacombs.

Interesting, entertaining, and cool. I did this with a group of 8. Dan the guide was exceptional. You can tell he loves his job. The tour was informative, interesting, and entertaining. The church is stunning. You get some history, culture, and humor all wrapped into one tour. The catacombs were not creepy like you expect in the movies. The history behind the families and the structure was very cool. I recommend this for students and adults. I dont think kids would appreciate this.

What a great experience, thank you! We had a great time on the tour. Dan was very knowledgeable about the things on the tour as well as the history surrounding the area. Great information for native New Yorkers and out of towners. He was also engaging and animated. It was all very interesting and I highly recommend it

Awesome candlelight tour of the Catacombs What an amazing experience. Our guide was super informative and knew the history better than most. We actually learned a lot about the area and some celebs who grew up in the neighborhood as well as several movies that were shot. I highly recommend the tour. The catacombs are amazing.

Wow! Loved it! My wife and I did this and we both thought it was the best thing we did the whole trip. Mind you everything was closed due to coronavirus. I love history so this was right up my alley. Thanks mike for the informative tour.

Old St. Patrick’s Like You’ve Never Seen It Before!!! I had seen this tour available for a couple years, and in light of the dampened spirit for this years St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in NYC, I figured this would be a great time to go and celebrate St. Patrick’s long association with this fine city. Boy am I glad I did!!! Kyle was a veritable fountain of information, and relayed 200 years of history into a lighthearted and humorous retelling that left the entire group enthralled and laughing!!! I would recommend this tour to anyone who has an appreciation for history and is looking for something a little different to do in NYC...and that includes tourists and locals alike!!!
