What people are saying about Paris Catacombs
From the moment we descended into the catacombs, We were entertained and educated simultaneously. The history of the catacombs and their role in stabilizing all of Paris is beyond anything we expected. The boneyard and it’s history was just as incredible. The off limits areas were great, and Ferit told the stories of these rooms and their meanings with such enthusiasm (and music) that you could tell he really enjoyed his job. Great tour, great guide. Highly recommended.
If you have read the Anne Rice novels this is s must! But also included chapters relating much of this period of French history and political influences at work; and the extraordinary feats of engineering and craftsmanship brought to the construction and ongoing maintenance of the Catacombs. Beware the steps back to the top at the conclusion - a level of fitness is required!
Fully worth the money. Think our guides name was Catrina. Good english, good guiding. I would recommend the private restricted area tour to everyone. So nice to pass the biiiig que. Even if you buy the ticket in advance there is still a que if You have not booked a guided tour. It was really nice to not be more than 6 persons.
We got to the catacombs 15 min before our due time and our wonderful guide said go grab a coffee and come back. It made my day not having to line up for hours. Brad, our guide was very knowledgeable and courteous. We learnt a lot and he took the time to explain all that we needed to know.
Our guide was amazing and personable. She was very thorough in her explainations and very educated on the history of the catacombs. After the tour she made herself available to answer any questions or offer suggestions for other tours or sights to see. Highly highly recommend this tour!
