Always. Skip. The. Line. With. The. Catacombs. When we got there, it was at least a four hour wait, easy - and we watched peoples faces as we sauntered right past them. The tour itself is much more fun when you have a guide, who is knowledgeable and fun! Having a tour guide also lets you see parts of the catacombs that you wouldn't be allowed into on your own, which is also very cool.
What a cool place!! Our guide was British, but knew EVERYTHING about the catacombs. He took us to locations the public don't normally get to see. He was funny AND informative. This was the highlight of our vacation in Paris. You MUST go on this tour.
Really, really fun tour! The line was around the block when we arrived - so glad we did the skip the line option! Our guide was funny, the tour was fascinating, and I felt like we got to see a whole hidden side of Paris!

This was my 1 stop when traveling to Paris, thanks to the movie As above below. Great tour, guide and tour company! Felt very intimate and personal even though there were quite a few attendees. Also the perks of skipping the lines which is long, is perfecto.
May sound morbid or macabre but a great tour! Truly amazing the back story and our guide Brad was wonderful. The steps going down to the catacombs, can be tricky for some people due to the spiral staircase. It's very cool down in the catacombs so you may want to bring a light sweater / shirt along. It's truly incredible how many bones there are down here but at the end of the day....it doesn't matter if you are rich or poor your bones are with all kinds of class. Which is funny when you think about how much emphasis the rich placed on their lives and how they looked down their noses at the lower class. Ha, the joke is on them as they are all together,
You are not allowed to use a flash as it can damage the bones. There is lighting but it's not very bright.
This tour was great and completely worth the price to skip the line. During my trip, the line extended for probably a multi-hour wait. The catacombs were amazing. A must see if you're in Paris!

So thankful we booked this tour. Skipped VERY long line, had an English speaking guide who had wonderful stories. We had access to a few areas not accessible to others.
This tour was awesome as was our guide Ferret (sorry if I spelled your name wrong). He was informative and told many a tale. You must book this tour - don’t queue or you will be waiting an average of 2-3 hours to get in as they only let in a certain number at a time. Besides we saw so much more.
Ferret, our tour guide was wonderful. He was animated and knowledgeable and really good with the kids on the tour. My son aptly called the catacombs creepy. These are way creepier than the ones in Rome. We learned a lot and the guide was great, but we were very glad to get back above ground. Not one of my favorite sites in Paris.
The tour was amazing and our guide was very knowledgeable. It was not morbid or scary but just very interesting with the description of the construction and how it all came about.
We would recommend that you take an organised skip the line tour, as there was a cue already around the block waiting to get to the entrance. The people at the end of the line were advised it would take 4 hours for them to get to the entrance. They only allow a maximum number of people underground at any time.
