This tour was amazing! In our group, we were the only ones from outside the city, which made us feel like we had definitely chosen the right place to learn some amazing history about NYC. The tour guide was fun and let us wander around and take pictures. He also gave us some really cool information! I highly recommend this as a stop for anyone visiting the city.

The tour itself was adequate, however the customer service was less than satisfactory. After working a very long shift we were looking forward to the experience. The GPS had sent us to the wrong address and called to see if we could either cancel, reschedule, or wait until the next tour that was after the initial tour. The member had informed us that there was absolutely nothing they could do to amend the issue. They also informed us that it was entirely our fault and that it's also a very common issue. As we arrived late the members were mocking our conversation that was held over the phone as we were walking in the door. Once on the tour the tour guide and targeted one of us as the center of a joke, which may have been ignored if we weren't already in an iterated mood. Lastly once in the catacombs, the "main" part of the tour, you enter as individual groups and are instructed to walk the catacombs yourself for around 20 minutes. The part of the tour with the iconic historical information you have to piece-work together on your own. The tickets are very overpriced for the tour and overall wouldn't recommend which is sad since the amount of historical information that could be pulled is abundant.
