Skip the Line: Catacombs of Paris Small-Group Walking Tour

Skip the Line: Catacombs of Paris Small Group Walking Tour

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.’

Really glad that we decided to splurge on a tour because the queue to get in was very long. I want to say at least an hour and a half wait. We checked in with the tour guide and walked right in to start our tour. It was around 2 hours, but with the information given, our tour flew by. Such an amazing city and really glad we took this tour.

It was a bit of walking, but our guide kept it VERY entertaining! We'd stop every little bit to get more information, a story, or something. The time flew by really quickly.

Note: If you are planning on taking pictures, bring something that can operate in LOW light. No tripods are allowed and there is minimal lighting below ground in the catacombs.

This was one of the highlights of my trip to Paris. Our tour guide was fantastic and very knowledgable, giving us a lot of details on the history of Paris! We got to see parts of the Catacombs that the public do not get to see. Highly recommend!!!

This tour is one of the coolest and cannot imagine comparing to another of it's kind. Lot of great history below the city and our guide was more than informed on all the history that has taken place below. This is a must do tour for all who are visiting the city of Paris.

This tour is a must! The line was extremely long on my visit so skipping the line was worthwhile. You also gain access to other parts of the catacombs not open to the public when booking a tour. Felix was a great guide!

Awesome tour. Our guide Alberto was fantastic. The chance some parts of the catacombs you can only see on this kind of tour was well worth the money. Highly recommend this tour.

Spooky and satisfying. wonderful tour, great outing but the last stairway climb leaves you next to a defibbulator-for a good reason!
