Ratings and Reviews
Best Tour App ever!
I thoroughly loved taking the tours of Pére-Lachaise snuggled in my bed with my double expresso. I have so missed travel in the last year and really felt like I escaped to this magical “City of Immortals” with this app tour. The photos of the graves/tombs are works of art in themselves and the descriptions are whimsical and feel like a personal tour. You can tell that the creators of this tour app are passionate about the place. I can’t wait till I can get back to Paris to use the app in person.
I feel as if I am there
I love this app for Pere-Lachaise which I have always wanted to visit but felt intimidated to do so given its size and complexity. With this guide I now feel as if I could visit it and have an amazing experience. The comprehensive history, lively and elegant descriptions, and beautiful photographs combine to bring Pere-Lachaise to life - I look forward to following these tours in person in the years ahead.
Downloaded this app before my visit to cemetery in September 2022. Found it informative and interesting. It prepared me for this huge, beautiful & overwhelming space that is hard to describe. I loved the pictures and details that helped anchor us to our location. This Cemetery tour was my husband’s favorite day in Paris.
