New York Catacombs by Candlelight

940 reviews
Perfect for history lovers, this tour of the historical Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in Lower Manhattan invites you into the catacombs, allowing you to see its pipe organ and venture to parts of the building that are normally closed to visitors. Beat the crowds on this tour and enjoy a personal encounter with this New York landmark.

Had an amazing time visiting the Empire State Building. This was a last minute trip with a "friend" visiting from Texas. I can't believe I waited so long to take the tour.

I highly recommend the skip-the-line ticket. Because it's usually quite the line. But the vista is totally worth the time.

I always believe that the best part of any place is the people. ESB is no different. The entire staff team were professional and beyond expectations. Our tour guide Renita was exceptional. She is the best part of the entire tour. We love it so much that we want all our family and friends to experience it. Highly recommended! Everyone deserves to experience NY at its best even during it’s most difficult time.

The view alone needs no recommendation, visiting is a bucket list must. Now is the time to visit - short to virtually no lines and very attentive staff. Everyone that works there is so friendly and helpful, really made the whole experience that more enjoyable.
