Excellent Tour!! Our tour guide was fantastic, fun, knowledgeable. We are so glad we chose the tour to get all the information we did on this amazing location. Highly recommend it!
Make sure you choose the skip the line tour, as the regular line to get in was around the entire city block, and we were told could take up to 3 hours to get in.

Very good guided tour. Ideal if you have teenagers or children who do not like to read about things on the way round. There was a long line up july so skipping the line was ideal. Highly recommend.

The guide was extremely knowledgeable and very witty.

If I hadn't taken the tour the catacombs would have just been stairs, tunnels and bones. Our guide Christina gave a much needed dimension to the experience.

Such a neat, unique experience! Well-worth the extra money to a have the guide and b avoid the line which wraps around the block. We heard it can take 2-3 hours to gain entrance!

This is a great and interesting site to see. I have older teen aged children and they loved it. The guides get there early to save places in the line. This is what makes it possible for you to get in. I spoke with a couple that had tried three times to get in and could never beat the line. They finally booked this tour and got in! The tour guide was knowledgeable and interesting. This is a definite tour to add to your visit.
