We had the most incredible time! John, our guide, was so knowledgeable and welcoming. He showed us things in the catacombs we will never forget. Can't recommend taking the tour, and if you can get John you will be in for an amazing experience!

This tour had a small group. Our guide was great and went slow enough so that you could sneak a picture here and there.

This is a fantastic tour that took 2 hours. Our family of 5 including sons 18, 19 and 19 yrs of age joined roughly 12 others for this small tour. At first I was concerned it was too large a group for the space, but it was fine. Our guide, Randa, was terrific at providing historic information in a dynamic way. She also did a great job of being flexible as the Catacombs accidentally booked 2 small group tours at the same time and she modified her tour accordingly--but we didn't feel short-changed. This is a great thing to do as a tourist in the winter and a great thing to do with teens.

The tour guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable. you can tell that he has passion for the history and culture of the city and it shows in his narration. Definitely worth the money!

What an amazing experience! We went on the two-hour tour of the Catacombes led by Leo she's a great tour guide, BTW in English. The history of the place is so incredibly deep and having a tour guide able to answer questions, point out interesting tidbits, and take us to parts of the tunnels not on the regular tour was perfect. Would HIGHLY recommend to anyone considering checking out the Catacombes and wanting a bit more than just the standard visit.

This was a fascinating tour with a guide who was clearly passionate about the catacombs, their past and current history. We learned about their history as a quarry, as well as the later use for re-interring the bones of deceased from Paris cemeteries that were collapsing into the streets and houses. We also heard interesting facts about other uses - storing wine and beer, even holding concerts! - and the work that still goes on to shore them up and preserve them. In addition, booking the tour meant that we skipped the very very long queue, which was taking about 2 1/2 hours on the day we went. I would thoroughly recommend it.

I took the Skip the Line Catacombs tour in Paris. An amazing guide named Leo took us through the catacombs and explained the history and pointed out so many interesting things. We were able to go in areas not on the regular tour since we had a guide. Leo even let me use her phone to call my husband. It is a must when visiting Paris and I would absolutely suggest a skip the line tour since the line to get in was incredibly long. Enjoy!

I absolutely loved this tour and our guide, Randa! She was funny, exciting and full of knowledge and interesting facts! I didn't book this tour with the intentions of learning anything, I really just wanted to see the Catacombs. In the end I came out having learnt a lot and I loved it! If the Catacombs spark your interest, definitely look into booking this tour!

Really great tour! Our Tour Guide was very good, gave us great information and we had a lot of fun. We learned a lot of interesting new facts. It is great to skip the line.

Highlight of our Paris trip!
We were on the fence about going into the Catacombs because of all the bones but we are so glad we did. Our guide was an American and so knowledgeable about the catacombs, took us behind gates that the general public could not go into.
Sure, you pay a little more for the tour but other than waiting for your tour to begin, you never have to stand in line. The line for the tickets and to go in on a self guided tour can be quite long, waiting hours before you can begin and when you are in a city like Paris, with so many things to see and do, who wants to waste 3 hours waiting in line.
Our only disappointment was when the tour ended! I would highly recommend this tour.

If you have a hankering to see the Catacombs...do NOT, repeat do NOT go on your own! The line was down the street and around the corner but our little band of spelunkers waltzed in before the line. Our guide was very knowledgable with lots of interesting tid bits and wierd facts. We were able to access parts of the underground that the general public could not. A really fun tour.

Millions of bones is piles is always going to be weird - but not scary. Our guide was personable and knowledgeable historically. One other guide from another company we heard at one point was loud and - frankly - embarrassed himself with his bombastic stupid orations. Our company/guide was great. This is a sombre place - and deserves a little respect for the dead. Our guide was the right balance of informative and respectful. It was good to get into the gated sections worth paying the extra and it might even be worth getting the guide rado thingy too - so you can go back and look at things again. Not too strenuous the stairs at the beginning are possibly the biggest climb down - about 130 stairs. No ghosts - just deadness.

great tour. when you get there you see hundreds of people lining up who didn't do the skip the line tour. they would be waiting upwards of 4 hours. fools. this tour brought us straight in. down a steep set of stairs we are now below Paris. bit eerie to some degree. but its steeped with history. great easy walk through and guide was fantastic explaining all and answering all questions. towards the end is when you see all the bones. real bones you can touch! a must for Paris tours

Our guide was a real historian and took us into areas that not everyone gets to go to. I highly recommend this skip the line tour.

My daughter convinced me to go on this tour and I am really happy I did. The tour was really informative and I learned a lot about the history of Paris. I am so glad that I went through Viator to secure tickets because the day I went the queue was quite long.

We had a great tour with Charly. His knowledge and enthusiasm for history was remarkable. He made this tour an unique experience with all the details and historical events he related. I was reticent of taking this trip. I just booked because my husband wanted to. But I'm very pleased that I joined this tour. I got so much interesting historical information about Paris that it made this tour a great choice. Charly's presentation was engaging and enhanced by his witty and clever comments. Totally recommend this tour.

This was a really enjoyable tour. We had access to places that general admission does not permit you to go including seeing some amazing sculptures in the wall. A must do, especially when you get to skip the massive line and enter straight away.

Our guide, Fred, was outstanding and quite funny as well. His English is impeccable and he threw in a lot of obscure but fun facts along the way! This tour was in our top 3 for all the major Paris sites.
