Paris' Pere LaChaise Gravestone Walking Tour
Reviewed by: sharon m, July 2014
What a fascinating place, it is both an historical site and also a current working cemetery. Our guide was friendly and also informative. He asked our small group if there were any particular graves of interest to them and he ensured that our tour included those graves.
The Cemetery covers such a vast area that having a guide ensured that we saw as much as possible in the time frame. You could spend a week exploring and still not see it all.
Be prepared with good walking shoes as it is hilly and quite uneven walking in parts. The major surprise was how green the area is, thanks to the 5,300 mature trees which give the most wonderful shade and atmosphere to this place.

We took the tour with Paulina in June 2014. We both enjoyed it very much thanks to Paulina's interest and knowledge. Couldn't have wished for a better guide. The cemetery itself is very interesting, and well worth a visit if you want something a little bit out of the main-stream Paris experience.

Excellent value. Very interesting; a guided tour is the way to go during one's first visit to the cemetery. (Next time I'll visit this peaceful location, and walk around independently.)

Our tour guide, Alberto, was great. He was funny, patient, and super knowledgeable. We were able to customize our tour so we could swing by graves we were interested in. He had a map in his mind that allowed us to cut all across the cemetery. The cemetery was so beautiful and rich in history!

Choosing to visit the cemetery with a guide was a great decision. He was knowledgeable about the history of the location and, of course, was able to show us the way to find the graves we wanted to see. As well he showed us many other famous residents. The rain really added to the atmosphere of our visit.

Great tour, our guide Adam knew everything off the top of his head, no book. He also started the tour at the back of the cemetery so we walked down hill wheras the other tour groups we saw walked upwards. I would definitely do this again!
