Very interesting and worth going to see. The tour guide was very informative and entertaining.
This tour is great plus the guided is a bonus as we learned so much and we able to skip the long Q.
the Catacombs were great and having a guided tour just made it a great time, well worth doing and would do it again,
Going to the catacombs was a major must do on my trip to Paris. I've missed it several times before and I was really eager to explore the place this time. We've met an hour before at the entrance of the catacombs. The guide told us that he will get the tickets and we can have breakfast at the nearby Brasserie. Right before 10 o'clock I went back to the entrance of the catacombs and the queue was already huge. Lucky for us, our guide was almost in the front line. Our group was split in small groups of approx. 8 people. Immediately after a few steps I was happy to booked the tour with a guide. He gave us so many additional information and show us hidden stuff I would have missed by exploring by myself. The guide had a broad history knowledge and knew how to wrap it up in an interesting way. The whole trip took around 90min I guess and I've never had the feeling that the guys are rushing. So they really took time for our questions. Would definitely do it again!
What they don't tell you is your guide is the one standing in line for you. The time you are given is when they should be at the front. The day we went, the lines were crazy! I guess it was some kind of holiday and the policy changed with this tour company at the beginning of February. It doesn't appear they have the same privilages they once had. We stil ended up having to wait another 1.15 minutes from orginal time given. Our guide was very apologitic an said we could get our money back if we didnt' want to wait. My friend and I were on a missioni to see this place. Once we got it, it was worth the wait. Our guide, David, was amazing. He made the tour. It still would have been great to see, but hearing the history behind the bones and back story was great. Just be prepared you may have to wait longer than expected. We didn't have anything scheduled after, so it wasn't a problem.
Our tour guide was great, very knowledgeable, very involved in the guidance through the catacombs and the oratory.
Wow, this tour was very cool! Our tour guide was friendly and very knowledgeable about the history of the Catacombs.
Must do tour - Really interesting place to visit - Great tour guide
Lucy was great. Had a great time. Enjoyable time for a grown up family.
Great tour and it was better than I expected. It is a very strange experience but I highly recommend it.
Superb, our guide in the bus kept us entertained on along ride and the guide at Pompeii basically knew everything, even vulcanology.
