Magnificent!!!!!! Hugo deserves all the accolades as he did an amazing job. What a knowledge of history.
Eddetta_G, Dec 2022
Hugo gave an excellent tour. He not only showed us the famous graves he showed us interesting and unusual ones as well. It was one of the most memorable parts of my trip. Well done, Hugo! He was so knowledgeable and made the tour most memorable. We appreciated his taken photos of us. He even walked us to the nearest taxi place and made sure we were safely on our way back to our hotel. Now, that is full service. Amazing tour and would highly recommend to everyone.
Beautiful, Historical Pete Lachaise

We enjoyed this tour through beautiful Pete Lachaise. Our guide, Lili, was knowledgeable, personable, and funny. She had a wonderful, conversational way about her that made you believe she personally knew the people she was describing. We came away with a better understanding of what makes Paris so magnificent.

Outstanding Tour and Guide

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!
