Interesting historical site in a great neighborhood to explore. Our host Kyle was a first rate tour guide: knowledgeable, energetic, and amusing. This is a definite for those who like an esoteric "off the beaten path" experience.

Great tour and history of the church and the area. Highly recommend this tour. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and seeing the organ in the church was an added bonus.

The tour was about 90 minutes. Very informative. If you’re a native New Yorker, you should know about the church and catacombs. Our tour guide Mike was knowledgeable and entertaining. Also, please donate to help restore the Erben organ in the church.

This was an interesting tour, one few New Yorkers even know about. Being able to see and hear the organ on 3/8 was pretty greats.

I loved our guide Brittany, she was crazy knowledgeable and lively. It was a wonderful tour! The only reason I didn't give this experience 5 stars is because I bought 3 holy waters as souvenirs and they were all just empty bottles.

Sadly, the Church was having a funeral followed by Mass. I wish we had been told we were not going to be able to see the Church interior including the organ. We would have rescheduled.
