Highly recommended. No waiting in line, tour guide was very informative, and the catacombs were exactly what I was hoping for!
Our tour guide was awesome. Very knowledgeable and fun. Highly recommend this tour!
Really awesome tour, and I hate going on tours. : Went right in no extra costs and the guide was very informative. I would use this service again.
Miranda was an excellent tour guide! Very informative and fun!
Fascinating tour, great guide, extremely well organized. Something for all the family, even if a bit spooky to be among the bones of 6 million former Parisians!
Tour was great, the tour guide was very informative, easy going and clearly enjoyed history and her job! It was wonderful to skip the line, as it was very long and pouring down rain the day of our tour. I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in visiting the catacombs.
Our tour guide was Lee and he was fantastic. He knew the history of the Paris and Catacombs very well. He was funny and was able to answer all of our questions. This tour is fantastic as you do not have to wait in line for hours to get tickets. You simply skip the ticket line and go into the Catacombs of Paris. I would recommend this tour to anyone. Ask for Lee!
great tour lots of information and history skipping the 3 hour line was a bonus and the group was only 16 people.
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.
The guide was friendly, knowledgeable and had a sense of humor. The tour met our expectations. If, in the tour description, you did not include that there is a several-step walk-up at the end of the tour, you probably should mention this. We did okay, but anyone with heart, knee, or respiratory conditions, would not have fared well.
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.
Without our smart, friendly tour guide, the catacombs would be just a tunnel and bones.
Alberto our tour guide was excellent, he made the tour enjoyable all the while informative.
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.
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
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!
Our guide Avi was super knowledgeable, fun and made it a wonderful experience!
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.
