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.
Really interesting to hear the history of the catacombs and to see parts of them. If you have knee problems like I do or are out of shape at all, the stairs up and down can be a challenge. They are in a tight spiral and there's no place to rest to the side while letting others past. You just have to keep going until they are done! The tight confines also made it hard to hear our guide if you're at the back of the line but she did her best.
Fabulous, the guide Eve was extremely well informed and made the trip so very interesting, very worthwhile, highly recommended.
Excellent tour. Our guide was organized,Knowledgeable and personable. I would highly recommend this tour
The tour was a bit creepy, with walking by the bones of 6,000,000 dead Parisians. The guide was very, very friendly and knowledgeable. Skip the lines really paid off again, just like all of the other tours we took through Viator. There were a lot of steps and walking through tunnels, so just be prepared; need good walking shoes.
Have wanted to do this tour last couple of trips to Paris and was well worth it. Guide was very knowledgeable providing interesting information throughout the catacombs. Definitely recommend to those introduced in learning about the catacombs, not simply walking through.
Worth the extra money we paid for the tour, which meant we went straight in at the entrance with a guide and bypass the lines was fantastic!! The queue snaked its way around the block, we think there would have been over 600 people waiting to enter, no way would we have joined it if we hadn't booked this tour - we would have missed the experience.
we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the catacombs, our guide was very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and entertaining. It was one of the highlight of our trip, and we went everywhere including moulin rouge.
Great experience, tour guide was very knowledgeable and professional.
Eve was our guide on this fabulous tour. Great knowledge from a young friendly English speaking guide. Incredible sights and history. A very interesting tour, much enjoyed.
I was so happy to see Eve there as my Guide again, when I arrived at the Catacombs! I knew it would be another great Tour with her! The Catacombs are amazing!! Cutting through the line is worth the price alone. It was fascinating to see the tunnels and hear the stories of Paris's Underground.
The guide was very informative and efficient with an excellent command of English.
To reach and exit the Catacombs visitors must descend and climb narrow, dark spiral stairs. Not recommended for the elderly or persons suseptible to claustrophobia.
A fantastic experience, very easy and organised our guide was wonderful and full of knowledge, thankyou
My friend and I took this tour last week. It was outstanding. I would definitely recommend the skip the line. The line was all the way around the block as far as I could see and they only let 25 people enter at a time. So I am assuming you could be there for hours based on that line. This was my second favorite sight to see on my trip after Versailles. You definitely must be in shape enough to navigate the stairs going up out of the catacombs. I had to stop very briefly twice on the way up. But I would do it again. A definite must see sight if you are visiting Paris!!!!!!!!!!!!
Laura was extremely knowledgeable and was very skillful in presenting the material. We enjoyed it very much.
a fascinating look at a part of Paris few see, very interesting and informative
This tour was fantastic!! Our guide was full of knowledge and did a wonderful job entertaining and informing our group. Definitely the way to see the Catacombs!
When we arrived at the Catacombs the line for general entry went way around the block. Best thing we did was book the tickets and skip the line. Much of the information inside, which isn't much is in French (which my partner and I don't speak!) I was able to learn so much more about why they exist and some of the funny stories behind such a weird place.
A must see and the tour made it so much better overall!
This was a fabulous tour, so very interesting. Guide was great, very knowledgeable. Wear comfortable shoes as there are a fair few stairs and ground is somewhat uneven. Don't miss this one, its a real experience
The guide was very informative and the catacombs were incredible. Definitely worth skipping the line!
I thoroughly recommend this activity. Without a guide I don't think you would get the impact and knowledge you do on this trip. It was the highlight of our stay in Paris
My Husband and I went on the Catacombs tour last week had a great experience. The lovely Canadian guide we had was very genuine, friendly and informative. He passed on a lot of the stories which are really quite dark, in a sensitve and sometimes humourus manner whilst being very respectful of those interred. We will definately recommend doing the tour for anyone interested in the history of Paris.
Outstanding tour, guide Adam was so articulate and informative, he absolutely knows and is passionate about this 'hobby" - throughly recommend the tour
