This tour was way better expected! Tour guide was so informational, learned French history, cave history, history of cemeteries in Paris, and more. My personal groups raved to everyone we met that they should include this exciting historical place in Paris. Very very good.
Good guide, and very interesting history, good visuals, take a light jacket and expect to walk a long way, but well worth it, we had a great continental breakfast at a cafe just to the right of the Metro station, Paris has the best Coffee int the world.
Loved this experience, not for claustrophobics! Again brilliant guide and extra experiences than self guided tour
Our trip to the Catacombs was fantastic. Charlie our English host, a self confessed and #34;Cataphile and #34; - someone who loves going underneath cities into the history was a ripper host who well and truly new his history and background.
It and #39;s amazing there is some much history behind the catacombs.
Our guide, Lillia was her name I believe, was an excellent tour guide. She is a history teacher from America and now lives in Paris, and she came well prepared. She had pictures to go along with the stories she told. It was very fascinating . I learned so much about the catacombs. I wish I had more time with her to explore. Definitely ask for her as your guide.
Definitely worth doing if only to skip the crazy line for those waiting to buy tickets probably saved an hour at least! Our guide was Lilia ?, who had an incredible amount of knowledge about the history of the catacombs and of Paris. Absolutely recommend the tour, especially since otherwise you're just walking through tons of bones on either side of you honestly would have gotten bored and more creeped out after 5 minutes by myself...Much better to listen to the stories behind everything and have the little details pointed out! We also got to explore a locked off area of the catacombs that are NOT open to general/individual ticket holders, so that was cool.
Very informative and interesting. Our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend it as a better option than waiting in line.
Great guide and learned more about the history of how the bones got to the catacombs. Very interesting tour. If you have a walking issue you should not go to this tour. Most of the floor is damp and could be a little bit slippery and there are stairs you have to go up and down. Overall it was a good tour.
Great experience. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and explained the history of the Catacombs and the surrounding area very well. We were allowed to access areas not normally open to the general public which was a bonus. Well worth the additional amount spent. The bonus was we got to snooze a bit longer than planned in the morning, because we didn't need to wait in the line that was about 1.5 hours long when we got there at noon.
Good. Skipping the long and slow-moving line is worth it. As a bonus you get access to two restricted areas. Advice: 1) bring a sweater (it is cold down there), 2) bring a flashlight, 3) sometimes it is wet and drippy - closed shoes best, 4) not for claustrophobics, 5) not for the sensitive people
I and #39;d heard lots of stories of long queues and then missing out on entry. So I went with the tour. skipping the line was great but also the guide brought it alive for me and my children, loads of interesting facts and stories and we went thru some tunnels that closed to the general public. Well worth iti
A great experience, our guide was very knowledgeable, answered all questions, made sure everyone was prepared for the stairs and low ceilings.
Everyone that goes to Paris has to do this tour. When you are down in the Catacombs you are in the realm of unbelievable. Felix was are guide and was very interesting. He also was friendly and helpful.
John did an incredible job at making the catacomb tour come to life! Ha Ha!! Seriously without the stories and knowing what and how all that happened, you would have missed so very much. And then there was the LOOOOONG line that we did not have to stand in! The line wrapped around the building and we just went straight to the door. Wonderful tour. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.
I haven't seen anything like that in real life before. Our tour guide was really good too!

Our guide was so friendly and pleasant and quite knowledgeable on the the history intertwined with the events of the Catacombs.
The tour guide specialist John was great and passionate about this place. He provided comprehensive information and tips. He also has a great sense of humor.
Tight space and a little creepy. But the history and just being there is amazing. Guide was great very knowledgable. Definitely should do it once
Tour was great. John was great. We were able to see other areas that you don and #39;t have access to without a tour. I would highly recommend this company and tour.
Loved this tour! Daniel was a great guide and gave us a wealth of historical context.
I thought our guide was excellent! He gave lots of history, background and details on the tour. My kids age 9 and 12 loved it also! I would not visit the catacombs without a guide, since he had so much info to share it really enhanced the tour.
