The Paris catacombs consist of an extensive underground network of tunnels originally dug as limestone quarries during the building of some of the city’s famous monuments. Beginning in the late 18th century, remains from Paris’ overcrowded cemeteries were exhumed and transported here for storage, with thousands of bones neatly arranged into piles along the walls.
Delve into this eerie underworld with an exclusive small-group tour. Lines to enter the catacombs often exceed 2 hours, but you’ll head to the front of the queue with your knowledgeable guide. A group maximum of 19 people provides a more personalized experience.
Wander through the dimly lit labyrinth that winds beneath the city’s famous streets. Marvel at the stacks of human skeletons that greet you at every turn while your guide illuminates the history of this soul-stirring ‘empire of death.’

This tour was excellent. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and amusing. Her stories really brought the history to life for us. The additional access was well worth the money!!

We were soooo happy to have selected this tour!! When we arrived and saw the huge line snaking down the street I was so happy I had booked us in advance, and thrilled we got to skip the line!!

We went in immediately and our guide Leo was great. She had loads of great details about the catacombs. She also told us lots of interesting stories. She also got us into some areas not available to the general public. I would highly recommend booking this your!!!!

Worth going but check the prices before you go. It seems we overpaid significantly booking through Viator.

Great tour -- got to go in a lot of areas the general tours don't go - and our guide had a lot of historical knowledge and was patient with everyone's questions....and most importantly, didn't lose anyone! Good tour to do with kids over age 7 or 8.

Loved this tour! Fred was amazing and the tour was well worth it. Very informative and well worth cutting the line and getting the extra info!

The Catacombs tour was very interesting and well organized. I would advise getting the skip the line ticket as there was a very long line when we entered the Catacombs and it was even longer when we were finished with our tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and the group small so that we could all hear and see what the guide was talking about. I would recommend this tour.

Our tour leader was Georgia and she was a real blast. She made visiting a necropolis fun. Very well informed and had a great grasp of history. I would definitely recommend a tour with her.

The only way to see the catacombs - is to avoid the lines. Saves heaps of time. Catacombs a must loved it

This tour was well worth the cost! Randa was our amazing tour guide. You can tell that she loves what she does. She gave an amazing history lesson with a bits of humor mixed in. I would certainly recommend this tour vs standing in a line that may be up to 5 hours long. I am positive that it was much more interesting than whatever audio guide comes with the standard ticket. Just a heads up for taller folks, the ceilings are quite low in several passages along the way.

AMAZING. Charlie gave the best tour of our 5 country summer trip. Seeing parts of the catacombs that are not generally accessible to the public was worth every penny. Definitely a highlight. This is a tour not to be missed!
