Great walking tour with tons of history! The tombs are surroundings are so beautiful and there are so so many to see. It’s great to have a guide walk you to the points of interest. I would have gotten lost if the guide wasn’t there! I was so glad to have booked this tour!

A faire absolument, ce lieu sacré de Paris doit faire partie de la culture générale de chacun. Toute une immense page d'histoire repose dans ce cimetière oh combien intéressant. De plus nous avons eu un super guide qui connaît très bien ce lieu avec d'excellentes explications.
