Ask for Isabelle
, Oct 2019
For our tour, we were lucky to have Isabelle as our guide. As a semi-private tour, we only had 7 people in our group, making for a great experience. Isabelle is very knowledgeable in French history as well as the catacombs. She encouraged questions and made the experience in the catacombs very memorable.
Highly recommend

I would recommend this to anyone visiting Paris! It was really well organized and we got to see several things unavailable to the general public. We would absolutely do this again if we return to Paris.
Outstanding Tour and Guide!

Isabel, our guide, was exceptional. Her knowledge of history and detailed stories about the Catacombs made our experience unforgettable. We highly recommend this tour and Isabel.

Visiting the catacombs of Paris is a must-see experience. Charlie was a fantastic tour guide! This guided experience was well-worth the $$$ and surpasses going at it alone even with the audio guide. Charlie clearly has a love of the history of Paris and brought together this history throughout the tour to explain each aspect of the catacombs in relation to the various time periods. Having the access to other areas of the catacombs that are private was a big bonus of the tour as well. No book or documentary on the 7 million people buried below Paris can replace actually seeing it in person. Overwelming and sobering. A must see experience while visiting Paris. Highly recommend this tour and you should ask for Charlie.

Ferret was great, very funny and extremely knowledgeable. The tour great insights into the history of Paris. I recommend this tour. Thank you!
Much better than expected!

Very cool and smart guide with a lot of background knowledge. It was never boring and we saw some more places than the regular audio guide guest. No waiting in the line, very easy access in a group of only 7 people. If you don’t book one of theses timed tours you maybe wait for hours outside because there is a limit of 200 to visit the catacombs the same time.
A Fascinating, Moving Experience
, Sep 2019
We really enjoyed our VIP Catacombs Tour! Our small group had 7 people: our family of 5 and another couple. Our guide, Ferrit, was remarkable: incredibly funny in certain parts of the tour, quite thoughtful and reflective at other times, and always full of fascinating facts and anecdotes. The Catacombs of Paris can be explored without a guide, but I really feel our experience was much more profound as a result of the time we spent with our guide. We recommend the tour highly.
Enjoyed catacombs

Tour guide very knowledgeable. Catacombs much more extensive than I imagined. The history of catacombs needs to be understood to understand Paris.
