Excellent tour! Mark had great knowledge of the cathedral and made the 2 hours fly by. We will definitely be coming back on our own to check out more gargoyles and grotesques. Binoculars, cameras, and good walking shoes are a must!

Great for those new to the Nat. Cat. and those wanting a closer look. Tour guide was knowledgeable and amiable. Enhanced greatly by perfect fall weather. One problem: after looking straight up the walls of the cathedral all morning, my back is...continued

I agree with the other reviewer. The tour guide shared tons of information and welcomed us to stay afterwards for more info. I learned and I liked!

Interesting tour. Would have been even better if it had included a bit of the history of Gargoyles - how they came to be, their significance, etc.

It was cold out for our tour but the guide, Mark, was great about giving us breaks to get inside and warm up. Then we'd brave it and head back outside for another round of gargoyles and grotesques. Mark was a font of information about the...continued

Mark was an excellent guide...his enthusiasm and knowledge for the subject clearly shined through. We EASILY could have spent twice the amount of time on the tour it was that engaging and educational, so much that we're planning on doing the...continued

Mark was a terrific guide -- informative, cheerful, and enthusiastic. He brought a camera for people without binoculars to look through. He was patient as we tried to find a particular piece we were seeking and had a great sense of humor.

My wife and I enjoyed the tour and were fascinated by the gargoyles, grotesques, and other carvings and features of the exterior of the cathedral. A significant blip however when in making conversation with tour guide John I asked if he was...continued

The heavy rain made it difficult to stick to the original plan and Mark did a great job coping with the conditions. He is very knowledgeable and personable. I learned a lot.

The tour guide was super nice and knowledgeable and really went out of his way to answer all of my questions. I'll be doing another one of his tours again.

This was a great tour- would never have even noticed the gargoyles and grotesques let alone realized that every one was different. Great intro to the history and external features of the building as well- so much so that we bought the gargoyle...continued

This was an interesting tour and the guide is well-versed in his subject. However, I thought I was purchasing one of the Cathedral's own gargoyle tours. There should be a disclaimer in the tour's description stating that it is not associated...continued

Unique and fun outing! I am a local but hadn't been to the Cathedral in quite a while; it was beautiful and the tour brought so many details to light that I wouldn't have otherwise looked for.

Very informative tour guide...despite the cold weather, he offered us a great deal of insight into the architecture of the cathedral, the gargoyles and the grotesques. He also recommended desireable places to picnic in better weather. I will go...continued
