The Basics

St. Patrick’s is a New York icon and rich in the city’s lore: F. Scott Fitzgerald wed Zelda Sayre at the cathedral, and Babe Ruth’s funeral was held here. Today, St. Patrick’s awes visitors with its white marble edifice, enormous bronze doors, and numerous altars. A recent restoration, which involved cleaning and repairing the cathedral’s interior and exterior, means St. Patrick’s looks more impressive than ever.

Thanks to its accessible location in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, St. Patrick’s Cathedral is a popular stop on hop-on hop-off bus tours, private driving and walking tours, self-guided audio tours, bicycle tours, and more. During the festive season, the cathedral is additionally included in a number of Christmas-themed itineraries. St. Patrick’s also offers guided group tours that you can book in advance, plus open public tours held at 10am on select days.

New York City at Night Bus Tour
Buster our tour guide was amazing. It was great to see all the sights in a condensed trip. The only negative was that it was not clearly communicated from the company that while admission into the Edge was included in the price, transportation was no included back to the pickup site. We ended up not going because of having kids and it being late so it was a waste of money.

Tour guide J was awesome, had a great time. He had built in bathroom breaks, if you were falling behind he would wait for you to catch up. Had plenty of ice cold water to drink. Had lots of information about the city. Would definitely recommend.

New York City Tour with Driver-Guide and Separate Guide Option
The best way to tour the city! We saw so much more in one day than we would have been able to see on our own. And our tour guide Scott was very knowlegable and helpful. He was a great driver and arrived in a very clean vehicle. A great experience and worth the extra money since we were traveling with my elderly parents.

Our local guide, Brendan Rothman Hicks, provided much detail while touring around. He also gave suggestions on what else we could do once the tour ends. I would recommend this to anyone.
