This is an excellent tour. My group was a mix of New Yorkers and tourists from other countries. Our tour guide Dan was very funny and knowledgeable. The tour began with a brief history of the Basilica. We visited both the graveyard outside the church and the Basilica itself before heading downstairs to the catacombs. The catacombs are not like the catacombs I have seen in Europe. It is more like a burial vault but still it is well worth a visit. Dan made the people interred there come to life with his stories.
