Fascinating Catacombs
Roy_B
, Sep 2021
This tour was completely fascinating! Our guide, Michelle, was upbeat, informative, and covered a lot of information that was easy to understand and key to understanding the overall history of the catacombs and how they fit into France’s development. We really enjoyed this tour and recommend it to others.

Kaitlin was an extremely knowledgeable guide. She had great bone jokes as well as other "death" jokes. She was respectful of the dead. The tour included parts of the Catacombs not normally opened to the public. There are some fabulous carvings that I was unaware of. The tour is totally worth it!

We met with Caitlyn (sp?) and she was incredible. I usually book tours when I visit a new place and I usually find them mediocre, but Caitlyn was incredible! She was very knowledgeable and her stories and presentation made this an excellent experience. I could not imagine visiting this location for the first time without her! Than you Caitlyn!

If you can request Kaitlyn, do so, she was everything you’d want in a tour guide, great story teller and really nice. The catacombs were great, they were mysterious, historical all at once. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the darker side of Paris

Go see the bones.

It was a very interesting experience. I would recommend it. Our tour guide was very personable and informative, although she seemed new at it. The tour feels a little long—-it’s a tremendous amount of bones.
