The history behind the catacombs was very intriguing. Our tour guy was very knowledgeable and personable. Without him I don’t think I would have appreciated the tour as much. I highly recommend this attraction with a guided tour and hopefully you get James!!!

We had Tara as our tour guide and John as our driver. Both were wonderful. John did a great job driving and changing the music. Tara kept things interesting and fun. She always had a smile on her face and you could tell that she enjoyed her job.
During the rope bridge we had a slight issue and we were late on the bus. She was super understanding and sweet. We went on the rope bridge. There is a line to initally cross, and then another line to cross back. We were able to cross quite quickly, but we were not able to cross back for about 30 minutes. We had to run to make it back to the bus on time.
We got about 1.5 hrs in belfast because we were ahead of schedule. The rest stop had a Gregs and a Subway. They also had candy and other quick bites.
You do not need a passport if you are from the U.S. Remember you need to pay by credit card or POUNDS in Northern Ireland.
It rained for us so bring panchos!
Be careful on Giants Causeway some of the rocks slide and you could fall. Don't take any risks just to get that perfect picture.
We had lots of fun and it was a great tour overall.

This tour was so worth it and truly was skip the line there was a 3 hour line that we bypassed, plus we got access to some parts of the Catacombs that only guided groups can go to. We were part of a small group of just 9 people. Avi was our guide and was really exceptional. He was so professional and knowledgeable and gave a great tour - we learned so much. The Catacombs had been closed for several weeks before our visit we checked their website for updates on the strike and got lucky that we were able to get in. Highly recommended!

This was a very historical tour. Lots of information about Paris and why the catacombs exist.

Amazing Amazing Tour! We loved our guide and he was THE BEST GUIDE WE HAD WHILE IN PARIS! The guide's name was FERIT. He played music during the tour. He allowed us to take pictures. We felt safe and immersed in the experience the entire time. He translated some of the sayings while on the tour. He had a lot of knowledge about the history of the Catacombs and the things that are presently going on inside of the Catacombs. We were able to go into areas that the general public didn't have access to which was pretty cool. The company even offers free tea, coffee, or baked goods if the tour is running late for any reason which we all declined but it was cool for them to offer.

EXCELLENT. Our tour guide was phenomenal and provided so much great information about the history of the catacombs. Once again, book the skip the line tour AND the special access. If you just go and book a ticket regularly, you will miss out on certain sections not open to the regular public and have to wait in a long queue. Lots of bones and skulls in the ossuary which is a spectacular sight to see. I forgot the name of our guide but she was a MA or PhD student and did a great job.

This Tour was AMAZING!! Our tour guide, Daniel, was fantastic. The Catacombs themselves were so very interesting, but touring with Daniel was so full of information!! This tour is not to be missed!!

A really interesting, unique experience, augmented by an absolutely fantastic guide in Ferit, who was 100 percent informative and entertaining. And of course, skipping the line is always good.

Excellent tour with a great tour guide. Ask for Abbey, she did a wonderful job and kept all of us in line. We did this in February when the lines are shorter but the line to enter was 4 blocks long. I can only imagine spring and summer. The tour cuts the line though still requires a bit of waiting at times. Added information and descriptions by the guide were excellent, might be the same with the audio tour but the audio tour people we encountered couldn't hear anything else so they would walk into the middle of our group and just stop. Not a lot of space in many of the passages so we often had to press up against a pile of bones to let others pass. Somewhat unnerving to lean on hundreds of femurs and skulls, and I'm a surgeon so I can imagine how others may have felt. Bones from 6 million people, if you consider every adult human after bone fusion has 206 bones that is about 1.25 billion bones in the catacombs total. As a Trauma Surgeon I kept looking at the numerous skulls with gunshot wounds, skull fractures etc. My wife finally made me stop saying oh could have saved that one, oops he would be a goner.... Overall a great tour, highly recommended but not if you don't like confined spaces and make sure you use the water closet before you descend, no restrooms underground and lots of stairs down, and more up, so wear comfortable shoes too.
