5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

Amazing, the best thing we did while we were in Paris. Our tour guide was Lucy, she was a lovely girl and was very knowledgable, deff worth the money. I know people are saying that it's basically just someone getting in line for you and fair enough that's how it starts, there is no true way to 'skip the line' for the catacombs because it is so popular, but it is well worth the money for the guide and to hear about the history and the stories behind it, otherwise after about 10 minutes the novelty has worn off and you're just looking at bones.

It was amazing our guide Demetri was so interesting and told us all the history and purpose of the catacombs without overwhelming us with too much info and being most respectful to the 6 million buried.
