Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Skip the Line: Catacombs of Paris Small-Group Walking Tour. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Without our smart, friendly tour guide, the catacombs would be just a tunnel and bones.
Excellent. Guide, Lillyah was terrific. She was well prepared with lots of history and photos of Paris during the time the Catacombs were established. Highly recommend this tour.
Worth every cent! First of all, the line to access the Catacombs snakes around the block, and waiting would have surely wasted time we could have been using to explore other parts of this magical city. The tour guide meets your group outside the entrance to the catacombs, clearly identifies himself, and signs you into the tour. From there, you gain immediate access to the catacombs, no waiting, no nonsense. Our guide Alberto was humorous, knowledgeable, and courteous. There wasn't a question that he was not willing to answer. We were thoroughly educated and entertained by the yarns Alberto spun. Even my fiancee, who is not a big history buff, enjoyed the tour. I would highly recommend this tour, especially if youre interested in knowing the background stories behind the catacombs otherwise it's a self guided attraction. Again, very very HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. And a final kudos to Alberto.
Alberto our tour guide was excellent, he made the tour enjoyable all the while informative.
Stairs spiral down and up, gave me a little dizziness but everything in between made it worth the few moments of discomfort. The guide was sharp and a great story teller. Not claustrophobic at all once down into the tunnels. Amazing history.
Great tour - guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. A bit long, but overall, really enjoyed this tour. Would never have waited in line, but having the skip the line access with a guide tellling us all about the history made this so worthwhile. My kids absolutely loved this tour, loved the gore of the stories
Our guide Avi was super knowledgeable, fun and made it a wonderful experience!
Great tour! We all loved it! I was worried about being claustrophobic, but honestly our flight over to Paris was far worse than the Catacombs! Our guide, Tina, was awesome. Loved hearing about the history of the Catacombs. What a neat spot!
This tour was perfect! We showed up and there was a 5 hour wait for those who didn't plan ahead. We met with our tour guide who was wonderful and went straight in! Tour was about 1.5 hours and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
This was a great tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Everyone in our group enjoyed this tour. Beware of the steps. Going down is fairly easy. Going up will be more difficult for someone out of shape or elderly. I will say that my mother was able to do it and steps are hard for her. There are 84 steps up, I believe. And it is a narrow, winding staircase.
There was a line of people waiting to get in who had not purchased a tour. I heard it was over 3 hours long. We met up with our group and went in within 15 minutes.
Wear sensible shoes because you will be walking on uneven paths with rocks and dirt. The catacombs are a bit chilly, but it felt good with all the walking.
Highly recommend. We went with a family group of 8. Youngest was 11 and oldest 64 and everyone loved it.
An excellent tour. I learnt so much more about Paris from this tour. The Guide was excellent. She made it all very interesting and spoke clearly.
our guide was great and the catacombs are very interesting. so glad we took the tour!
Well worth it great guide and we were the first ones. This tour was in the top three things we did in Paris.
This tour was so good! I am so glad we had a tour guide as I would not have known what we were appreciating! We so skipped the line! Cannot say a bad thing about it! Well done and thanks!!!:) x
There were two key points that made the tour well worth the money. 1. We saved hours queuing in the rain that may have dampened the mood once we finally got into the catacombs. 2. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and offered a great deal of information about every feature and the history of the catacombs. A very worthwhile experience!
great tour guide with lots of information about the catacombs
Amazing. Our tour guide was excellent. Knowledgeable and funny. I would say make sure u wear comfortable shoes!!!!!! If I could underline that I would!!!!
Our guide, Alberto, met us promply at the specified time. He was not only VERY informative but he was funny as well, which put the whole group ay ease. With the narrative from Alberto this tour was definetly worth it. The 1.5 hours went by quick.
