Our tour guide was Mike, who was very knowledgeable about the Basilica and surrounding areas. We did this tour for the catacombs although they were not like the old European catacombs I was expecting, but rather more of an updated area. I also think the...More

This was a great tour as it gave you so much history of New York as well as if the Cathedral itself. Don’t confuse it with the new St Patrick’s on 5th Avenue! Tommy’s tours were great and for history lovers this is so interesting....More

the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry,
Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping,
