This was amazing! The guide was great, very funny and reallly knew his stuff. What an incredbile experience. I would caution once more that there are alot of stairs going into and exiting the Catacombs, and the floor can be a bit slick. Having recently broken my leg in a fall, I was worried about losing my footing, so I'm glad that he warned us in advance. I'm also glad that I didn't know when I booked this, because I might not have, and I wouldn't have wanted to miss the experience.

My husband, 18 yr old daughter and I booked this tour months before our trip as this was the one trip my daughter really wanted to do. Once we arrived and saw the line ups that snaked around the block I was so glad we had pre-booked. Our guide was a fun loving young fellow from New Jersey and he made the tour a lot of fun. He had some great historical details interspersed with fun facts and very funny stories. The tour was an excellent size (19) and was all ages. He allowed us to really take our time and spend the time we needed to explore and take the photos we wanted. My daughter was extremely satisfied with this tour as were my husband and I. I would definitely book another trip with this company and highly recommend them to friends and family.
