5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

This was a great tour, very informative, not just about the Catacombs but the limestone quarry underground tunnels within which they are located. Just amazing what was completed so many hundreds of years ago.

Sophie was our guide and a lovely French lady very passionate and knowledgeable about the topic.

My children (8 and 10) both enjoyed the tour and remained interested for the entire time (which is a big call for their age and the fact we had already been travelling for a couple of weeks and were quite tired by this point).

Excellent tour, highly recommended.
