I was so looking forward to this tour having done three other walking tours in NY in previous days. The first issue was the number of people in the group. The guide said we would be split into two groups as there were at least 36 people but when he went to get another guide, I heard the "boss" say to him "you've got this". It wasn't the guide's fault - he did his best but it was just too many people to be moving around in enclosed spaces and slows everything down. The tour itself was unfortunately very underwhelming but perhaps I just expected too much. Europe and catacombs it is not...the candle is a battery operated tiny tea light and you can hardly read the tombstones with this tiny light. Not worth the pricey $35 charged.
