Père Lachaise Walking Tour   is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Interesting! We had such a great time touring Pere Lachaise with Fat Tire Tours! The cemetery is immense. We would never have seen half of what we did if we attempted without a tour. With Fat Tire, we were able to see everything we hoped to and more. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and informative, which made it even more interesting. We loved learning about the history of the place and the people interred there. I definitely recommend a Fat Tire Tour!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Père Lachaise Walking Tour - Highly Recommended We were in Paris in early June 2018 and this tour really interested us. We were extremely pleased. Kit was our tour guide. He was on-time and had a sign so it was easy to find him. He is very knowledgeable about the cemetery and about the people buried there. He knew the history of Paris and France and Europe. Engaging stories he had and he was willing to answer any questions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Memorable experience Kit is a brilliant guide and a wonderful historian. He showed us all the famous graves, sharing fun, unique and heartfelt stories along the way. I can't recommend going with a guide enough; we were a small group of three (basically a private tour!). We passed loads of clueless people head down in their phones, desperately trying to locate the right graves. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You’ve got to take this tour!! I went on the Giverny Tour last week - fabulous!! - and my companion had to cancel at the last minute because of illness, and because they’re great people Fat Tire gave me credit to apply to other tours. So, this was one of them. AM I EVER GLAD I WENT ON THIS TOUR. It was beyond fascinating. Kit is a great guide, full of humor and fascinating stories. Jim Morrison is the least of the famous people buried here! We’re talking Chopin, Oscar Wilde, Pissarro, Edith Piaf, among many others. And each one has a story! It’s also a beautiful place. Go on this tour!
