I was amazed at the historical significance of this Basilica. I was equally amazed at how knowledgeable our tour guide was. The ladies in the office facilitating the tour arrangements were great as well.

The tour guide was awesome and the history but we felt the only lacking part was the actual “candlelight” tour part in the catacombs

The tour guide, Dan, was very knowledgeable and engaging. He did a really great job of towing the line between an engaging story and the nuance of the actual events described throughout the tour.
