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 20 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 was a fantastic tour! The line to get into the catacombs is very long, so it was lovely to be whisked to the front and let in immediately.

Our guide, Charlie, was fantastic! He was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and very entertaining. He clearly knew his stuff.

This tour was excellent! We got to see parts that are not open to the public and skipping the line was worth it. Our tour guide, Alberto, was fabulous. We highly recommend this!!

The tour was as described in the confirmation. Our guide, Randa made it a better tour. She was an American and spoke English perfect. She had so much information to share. This tour company's connection with the Catacomb staff got us into a few areas that are locked and not available if you do the self tour. It was nice meeting the guide at the entrance and bypassing the approx. 2 hr wait.

This was a wonderful tour. Nice size group so we can all see and hear the guide.
Important to note: There are a bunch of cramped spiral steps up out of the Catacombs. Wear appropriate shoes. The catacombs are slippery in some areas. One lady fell in our group, and several others had a hard time making it up the the steps at the end of the tour.
