I thought our guide was excellent! He gave lots of history, background and details on the tour. My kids age 9 and 12 loved it also! I would not visit the catacombs without a guide, since he had so much info to share it really enhanced the tour.
Fascinating... going on a tour of the catacombs is well worth it and gives an even deeper understanding of the history of Paris. Our tour guide was outstanding!
Our guide Lillia, was very good and the private tour was well worth the added expense to see areas the general public doesn't have access to and to avoid the hours long wait.
Our tour guide was exceptional!! Her knowledge and communication skills made the tour so much more enjoyable and educational. The best!!
Wow, what a tour, so much we don and #39;t know, it was a great tour!
This tour was awesome--one of the highlights of our trip! Our tour guide was Randa and she was the best! Very knowledgeable and VERY entertaining. Skip-the-line was the way to go. There were people in line waiting for three hours. The ticket through Viator was a Godsend--we walked right up and into the catacombs. Highly recommend.
Highlight of the trip!
Had the opportunity to review a lot of my French history and learn a lot of new facts on this tour. My guide, Ari, was fantastic. I highly, highly recommend him.
This is just so wow!!! Fascinating, and our tour guide was VERY knowledgeable and had heaps to tell us on stories, well recommended!!!
My daughter and I spent a week in Paris and this was one of the most interesting things we saw. The scope of the catacombs is awe inspiring and the guide was great.
Our guide was great! The tour was wonderful with lots of knowledge imparted by the guide. I highly recommend this tour!
We are so glad we did this tour. Tour guide was fantastic and it was worth it just to skip the 2 hour line!
Great tour. We would definitely recommend. The skip the line feature alone was worth the investment. Our tour guide was great.
John was an excellent tour guide. Interesting facts. No wait in queue and we got to see a few areas not open to the general public. One of the best things I've done in Paris so far
Unbelievable to see and know that someone was once employed as a decorative bone stacker underground. Felix was our informative and helpful guide. Please be aware this is a walking tour and a degree of fitness is required. Not for those who dislike small spaces or narrow stairs which there are many coming back out of the catacombs.
Well organized tour into semi-private areas of the Catacombs. Very knowledgeable and enjoyable guide
We met with the city wonders rep outside the entrance. When our group had all arrived we met our tour guide, Alberto. He was funny, charming, and charismatic. The history/ stories were great. It was fun to be allowed behind locked doors that the public does not have access to...this was my first trip to Paris/Catacombs and it was incredible. We thoroughly enjoyed this experience. This was our second tour through viator and I would 100 recommend this guide/tour. Also, for those worried about the physicality of the tour- it was not that bad. The stairs were manageable and the halls were tall/wide enough for regular people to navigate. Also, at the end of the tour you can go into the gift shop and they recommend a local bar to go to. We went to the bar and enjoyed some good drinks-I recommend that place too.
Took this tour on Wednesday afternoon with Alberto, an Italian living in France, whose English was very good. He made the Catacoombs come alive for us, with his witty and knowledgeable commentary and thanks to having booked this tour, as opposed to queuing up for hours outside and only seeing specific areas, we walked straight in at our allocated time and saw parts that are generally closed to the public. So very glad I took this tour, as what I had read about the Catacoombs before coming to Paris just didn't do them justice. Would recommend this to every single person who has ever even had a moment's thought about doing it. It wasn't cheap, but then again neither was the experience. Word of warning though- at the end when you start to climb towards the surface it is extremely hard going as there are many steps and they are high. I really struggled and am not in bad shape, so if you have dodgy knees or feet, or a heart condition I really wouldn't recommend it! Violette
Visiting the Catacombs is a must when you are in Paris and our guide Alberto was fantastic. Glad we booked this tour... not only did we skip the 1hour line to get in but it was a great way to learn about some of the history of Paris and of course explore some additional tunnels of the Catacombs which we otherwise would not have had access to.
UNEXPECTEDLY TERRIFIC. AMAZING STORY AND VERY UNIQUE EXPERIENCE. TOUR GUIDE WAS OUTSTANDING
Great experience. Guide was on time and very knowledgeable and friendly. We were here in April and the line ups were not long at all but having a guide made the cost of these tickets worth it. We also got to go into areas where the general public was not permitted. Totally cool tour!
Alberto was our guide and his knowledge of the Catacombs was incredible. I also liked the fact that he mentioned the movie, and #34;As above, so below and #34; which is based on the catacombs of Paris, not necessary a true story but was impressed he knew about it. I highly recommend this tour!
