      Fun and interesting tour. Our guide Igor was very knowledgeable and made the tour a lot of fun. There is a lot of walking and many stairs so I would not suggest this for anybody with mobility issues. Also one couple brought their baby with them on the tour: this is not a good tour for a baby. It's dark and there is nothing to hold a baby's attention. Due to the cavernous nature of the tunnels, a baby cries drown out the tour guides comments. Best suited for children 10/12 and above

      Our guide, Igor shared his knowledge of the Catacombs and the rich history of Paris. He made sure everyone in the tour saw and heard about each section and helped us capture the best pictures. The VIP sections of the Catacombs and the skip the line ticket made this superb! Highly recommend this tour.

      Catacombs was very interesting, mysterious, a little creepy (in a good way). Our guide was fantastic. He was knowledgeable and shared a lot of stories about the catacombs as well as history of Paris. In this tour we got to visit sites that are off limit to public. Highlight of the trip!

      Our tour guide, Remy, was fantastic. Skipping the lines and getting to see a few restricted areas only available to tours was well worth the extra cost.

      This was an amazing tour, we absolutely loved it. Our tour guide David made it even more amazing with all of his knowledge that he shared with us it gave us a different perspective on the catacombs, his fun personality and joking manner made it fun even. This is a must do and see and you must do it and see it with David lol.

      By far one of the best tours we have taken! Guided tour was worth the extra cost. Our guide (Remi) provided historical details of the catacombs and Paris, which made this a lasting experience. Highly recommend. Plus, that line outside was way too long.

      This tour is a must see when in Paris! our tour guide Ferret I am so sorry if this is not how you spell your name! was amazing. He knew his history very well and kept our small group entertained during the whole tour. If we had not had a tour guide, I am positive that we would have gotten lost haha! Not to mention, we would not have gotten the history lesson that we did!

      This was definitely the most unique experience of the tours and activities we participated in while in Paris. Skip the line access is the way to go especially for the catacombs because only 200 people are allowed in at a time. I would say the wait to get in without skip the line was around an hour and a half to 2 hours if I had to guess based on the line. Another benefit of this specific guided skip the line access tour was that we got access to places that are closed off to anyone with a general admission ticket, so it's totally worth it. Our guide Linda was amazing, she was on time, the meet up location and instructions were easy to find/follow, and her insight was great. I learned things from her that I wouldn't have just walking through the catacombs on my own. No negatives or complaints at all about this tour.

      Skip the line access for the Catacombs is essential unless you like waiting in lines at least 90 minutes to 3 hours long. The catacombs and underground tunnels were super neat and our tour guide was knowledgeable, but her English was not great. Still recommend the tour.
