The tour is worth it. First, you skip the crazy long line. Second, you get way more information, history, and stories about the catacombs then doing it on your own.
A very cool experience. Not for people who have trouble walking as there are a lot of stairs down and uneven footing once you are in the catacombs. My kids thought this was good as well 14 and 16 years old.
A guided tour is definitely the way to go. You get access to areas you would not be able to see going solo. The guide was also very informative, providing insight into the catacomb's history, prominent persons, dates, and even the modern cataphiles.
We really enjoyed the tour with David. Fascinating and informative!
This was awesome. You are down there for a little over 1.5 hours. You get to do a side tour that you would not be able to do without the tour. You get a VIP treatment and it was awesome. The line to get in was almost 2.5 hours but with this we waited maybe 5 minutes to get our tickets and see the catacombs. As stated you get to go into side tunnels that are not with the regular admission. It was great.
This was an awesome tour with a great tour guide. The line to buy tickets was very long so we really enjoyed being able to skip that. Our guide was very informative. I can't imagine this tour without a guide. I was worried about other people's reviews of the 83 steps at the exit, but it wasn't really that bad.
This was a great private tour that covered many great facts. I was very impressed with the guide and would highly recommend this to anyone who goes to France. It was one of the many highlights of my trip.
We really got the VIP treatment, the guide was excellent and we got to see things the general public did not get to see. Plus, we were so glad to skip the long waiting line outside! This was money well spent.
Very knowledgeable tour guide and enjoyable tour. A must see!
Rich United States of ...
The tour was excellent. Our guide David was terrific and a really nice guy. Very knowledgeable!
Excellent tour- loved the guide and historical information he provided
Our tour guide turned it into an even better experience than expected! She was respectful of the site but yet made it 'not' a gruesome experience. My 19 year old granddaughter and 23 year old grandson thought she was the BEST! We really lucked out that day!!
Great Experience, Supper Informative and you must do it if you are in paris!!!!
Duc was a great guide, full of interesting history and rumors about the Catacombs. Doing the tour allows you to see parts of the Catacombs that are off-limits to the regular tourists and made the experience extra special.
This tour was fantastic. Our guide was knowledgeable, charming, and funny. I would not have wanted to see the Catacombs without him!
Very good tour. Takes you to areas exclusive areas of the catacombs not accesible on regular tours. Very good guide, gave good context and answered all the questions. Length of the tour is optimal.
PERFECT! The guy was perfect as well! Amazing I totally felt the worth for every penny and plus it would have sucked to stand in the line for 2 hours. Amazing, totally recommend this.
Awesome and very informative. You get to skip the line which saves you so much time. David was very intersting and had fun facts to share. He was even able to take us to private sections that the normal person would not be able to access on their own. Highly recommend!
The guide was indispensable. Skipping the line a desire you will feel comfortable fulfilling. Our trip was in March, 2016, and lines are an hour for each venue we attended....Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Catacombs. The majority of a day would have been spent standing. The Catacombs are beyond incredible! We know what they are, but the 2 kilometers of travel descends you far into the past, deep into the heart of Central Europe the times, emotions, and realities.
