I have always wanted to visit Here Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, but I was unsure how to locate many of the famous tombs I would like to have visited. Also, I knew nothing about the cemetery at all, so I decided to look for a small or private tour. I definitely made the right choice! My tour was a private 2.5 hour tour led by an incredibly knowledgeable and friendly fellow named Ferit--I hope I have spelled his name correctly. Ferit met me promptly, greeted me warmly, and after a few brief introductory comments, gave me a fascinating history and background of the cemetery and compared it to a few others in France as well other famous cemeteries in the world. Ferit then walked all over Here Lachaise showing me various important areas of the cemetery (Holocaust remembrance section, for example) and where cremation ashes are spread. Furthermore, Ferit took me to MANY specific graves of historic and artistic importance (Oscar Wilde, edit Piaf, Isadora Duncan, etc.) and a few that I specifically wanted to see (Bellini, Rossini, etc.). I was a beautiful day, lovely weather, and excellent day for a tour. All in all, I highly recommend taking this tour--and if you should have Ferit as your guide, you will be in good hands!
Lucia was an awesome tour guide. l learned a lot about history and saw things I would have missed just walking around.
We loved our tour and guide. The experience had more of a good friend sharing information via a conversation rather than a didactic experience. Worth every cent.
I had the pleasure of taking a Pere Lachaise cemetery tour, It was such a wonderful and memorable experience. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and made it very interesting and fun. Definitely recommended.
My 18 year old son and I took a private tour of the Louvre Museum and a private tour of the Pere Lachaise Cemetery with Lucia and what an amazing experience. Her knowledge was beyond our expectations. She is so very kind, soft spoken, speaks English very well and by the end of our first tour with her we felt like she was extended family. We both felt like we could have spent our entire time in Paris with her. She gives great detail about the important things you would want to see on the tours and even had some pictures with her to make the experience that much better. Lucia will not disappoint you.
