Excellent tour

Katelyn was a wonderful tour guide. I highly recommend you take this tour with her. She made it entertaining as well as informative.

Amazing tour guide
, Mar 2020
We loved hearing all the historical facts during our Catacombs tour. Our guide was so personable & congenial. She involved everyone that was on the tour with us & she was so full of energy. Her excitement made us want to hear what she had to say.

Catacombs skip the line tour
, Feb 2020
Christa was our tour guide and she was by far the best tour guide we’ve ever had. She was knowledgeable and humorous, which made the experience that much better. My wife and I would book a tour with this company anywhere else.

Hi Mitch_H, Learning that Christa was able to provide you with such a wonderful experience it the best thing we could hope fo! She is a true asset to the Walks Team and we are so lucky to have her! We hope you will get the opportunity to share another walk with us soon! The Walks Team
Informative and Interesting Experience
, Feb 2020
Very interesting tour and experience. Our tour guide (Kristin) was very informative about the catacombs and allowed for enough time to take it all in plus take pictures.

Hi Rachel, We are thrilled to learn that you enjoyed your time with Kristin. We strive to provide a 5-star experience on each of our tours, and it looks like we achieved that with you, and we couldn't be happier! We look forward to sharing more walks with you soon. The Walks Team
Great day at the catacombs
, Feb 2020
Krysta was phenomenal! Do NOT go without a tour guide as people looked bored wandering through the passages. Our tour was anything but boring, she added a lot of historical and present day context to this amazing place. A must see place and tour.

Hi Alyson_S, It is wonderful to learn that Krysta was able to provide you with the excellent customer experience that we work so hard to achieve. We will be sure to forward your kind review to her as we are sure it will make her day just as it did ours. We look forward to sharing more walks with you soon! The Walks Team
Crowds even when you thought not.
, Feb 2020
We thought it was limited to 12 people. Way too many people in the group. Guide would talk to people who were in the front and those in the back couldn’t hear.

Hi Honest, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us! It is disappointing to hear that your experience fell short of expectations. That’s not at all what we’d hope for any customer on one of our tours. Our Catacombs tour accommodates 19 persons per group, and even with this group size we encourage and expect our guides to be fully interactive with the entire group as customer satisfaction is our number one priority, and we are disappointed to learn that this was not the case for your tour. We will work to ensure this doesn’t happen in the future and we hope that if you return to Paris or any other country we serve, you will give us another try - we’re certain you won’t be disappointed! Kind regards, The Walks Team
Catacombs with 12 and 13 years old girls
, Feb 2020
Guide met us at the right time and place. We toured the catacombs and received a good background for the reasons behind the creation of the catacombs. Kaitlyn was our guide and she did a great job. Our 2 girls 12 and 13 enjoyed it.

A little eerie and enigmatic, a visit to the catacombs just isn't the same without an expert guide there to reveal its hidden secrets! Thank you for reviewing your experience with us; we are delighting that your family enjoyed the tour.
Catacombs Brought to Life
, Feb 2020
We were looking forward to this tour from the moment we started planning our vacation to Paris. Booking through Viator made everything so easy. Katelyn, our guide, made the time we spent with her fun by slathering clever puns throughout her presentation, using her deep knowledge and obvious interest in the subject matter to entertain and inform. The stories she told (The bones of rich, famous and infamous Parisians mingled with commoners! Secret clubs hidden in the myriad tunnels! The sheer number of the dead housed within the site!) truly brought the catacombs to life. The tour included a couple of areas not open to the general public - worth the cost of the tour just to see these hidden gems.

It's good to hear that you had such a wonderful time exploring the Catacombs with your guide, Katelyn. Thank you for reviewing your experience with us; we are glad that you enjoyed it!

Great tour by Michelle. No waiting in line. Entertaining and informative. It was nice to see the private areas not open to general public. Highly recommend.
