This is a long review because that’s how much I love this tour. If you looking for the short version, skip to the last paragraph.
If you are looking for an offbeat and memorable experience in Paris, then surely you must visit the catacombs.
Now I know some of you reading this may worry that it’s too macabre, or that you may wind up trapped in the Necropolis, never to return.
First of all, the scariest part of the catacombs will be the 5-hour plus wait in line if you do not take the Skip the Line tour, and that’s before you get to see any of the cool stuff!
Another thing is at the beginning and end of the tour, you’ll be walking down a bunch of stairs (when you enter) and up some stairs when you leave. To avoid getting dizzy, I suggest holding onto the handrail, and periodically look up when you have firm footing. When you keep looking at your feet for a long time, you can get a little light-headed.
Third, as much as I hoped that a bunch of skeletons might jump out and scare us living folks, *spoiler warning* no such thing did happen. In fact, you’re more likely to be bothered if you are a skull or femur bone, as foolish people did try to steal these in the past. I’m sure those people are cursed now.
This tour gets 5 stars is because of Georgia. We were very lucky to have her. At the meet-up location, she introduced herself to every single person that showed up, and charmed us with her self-deprecating British humor. During the tour, Georgia shared with us her passion for history and the French Revolution in particular (also on the Roman catacombs to an extent). It was a magical mixture of enlightening and entertaining, with humor to balance the horrors of history. Most impressively, she made sure everyone felt comfortable and safe every step of the way, and ensured no one fell behind. Everyone needs a Georgia in their lives.
This tour is not too crowded because they control the number of people they let in, due to limited oxygen supply and all that. You also get to see exclusive locations that regular visitors don’t get to access. Enjoy the VIP treatment! Won’t spoil what you see here, but aren’t you curious?
In conclusion, excellent tour. You’re paying for 0 wait time, a pro tour guide (Georgia, if you’re reading this, I know by now you’re partying hard with the cool kids), and access to secret locations most visitors don’t get to see. Just make sure you’ve got enough battery juice on your camera (just no flash) and you’re good to go. Have fun!
Avi was a great tour guide! Very informative, funny and well organized. Highly recommend the skip the line option. We saw the ticket line wrapped around the block and then some. Would definitely do this again.
