Full description
Your experience begins are you meet your guide near the famous catacombs, where you will walk in through a dedicated entrance for semi-private groups (bypass the long lines where people usually wait 2 hours or more). From there, walk down to the Underground Quarries level (140 steps), where you will discover a whole new world.

Your guide will walk you through a mile of medieval tunnels as you hear about the thousands of workers who helped with the construction of Parisian palaces and churches. Next, reach the entrance of the Morbid Collection of Human Remains, where you will learn how over 6 millions Parisians are actually buried right in this spot. Your guide will also know about each ancestral cemetery of Paris, and will reveal secrets only known to locals.

The gem of your semi-private guided tour is the exclusive access to restricted areas closed to regular visitors. These areas include the Bones Chapel, the Mason's Secret Museum, and the Grand Tuscan Gallery, a truly mesmerizing experience. You will also hear of heroes of the French Revolution, tales of local residents hiding from the Nazis, and famously memorable Halloween parties.
