    Our guide Charlie was very young yet he presented a good history of the place, and France in general. He was as good, or even better than an audio guide as he interspersed information about the catacombs with funny stories and recent events. I would recommend this tour to those who are looking for an adventure other than the usual ones Paris has to offer. Definitely worth your time and money!

    Well worth the expense. It was well organized. The information provided was simple and accurate. Our guide Vic was on time and prepared. She made effort from moment one to get everyone's first names. She was charismatic and provided so much wonderful information and stories. I especially appreciated that she did not do too much pre-orating. She really gave everyone the opportunity to take it all in and experience the catacombs through each section, She then answered all questions, and filled in any blanks. This really was such a wonderful experience from start to finish. I would absolutely recommend the City Wonders Private tours and encourage attendees to request Vic.

    Skipped the lines, efficiently got us into tour. Our tour guide was great – made the tour funny, a bit creepy/spooky, painting a real facts picture of the tunnels uses over the generations. Also how the mass human remains came to be placed there.

    Victoire was so passionate about the catacombs that it made it the best experience my wife and i had in france. She made our honeymoon better than i could’ve hoped, i'm convinced that anybody else would’ve been insufficient after hearing such detailed and wonderful stories about the history of france and the catacombs from her. She was funny, informative and kind. Any question that we asked was answered beyond our expectations, i hope that this review helps you see how wonderful of an employee you have in Victoire.

    Though traveling to Paris on a college student’s budget, I decided to splurge on one thing: a guided tour of the catacombs. I do not regret it at all and this experience has been the highlight of my trip! My tour guide was Vic, a very nice young woman. She was energetic, spoke perfect English and very funny! With this tour, you learn much history of Paris, explore several restricted areas and get to skip the line. I definitely recommend.

    AOK, tour provided good details and for me it helped me understand more of the French revolution and key reasons for this event in France. Guide was very good in the exchange of the events, and answered our questions clearly. All was good.

    The tour was amazing and our guide was very knowledgeable. It was not morbid or scary but just very interesting with the description of the construction and how it all came about. We would recommend that you take an organised skip the line tour, as there was a cue already around the block waiting to get to the entrance. The people at the end of the line were advised it would take 4 hours for them to get to the entrance. They only allow a maximum number of people underground at any time.

    Ferret, our tour guide was wonderful. He was animated and knowledgeable and really good with the kids on the tour. My son aptly called the catacombs creepy. These are way creepier than the ones in Rome. We learned a lot and the guide was great, but we were very glad to get back above ground. Not one of my favorite sites in Paris.

    This tour was awesome as was our guide Ferret (sorry if I spelled your name wrong). He was informative and told many a tale. You must book this tour – don’t queue or you will be waiting an average of 2-3 hours to get in as they only let in a certain number at a time. Besides we saw so much more.

    I would not recommend Viator as a booking agent or City Wonders as a tour agency. I booked six Paris tours through Viator at considerable expense – all with different tour companies. City Wonders our catacombs tour company sent me two unexplained text messages about a change in meeting place for an Eiffel Tower tour which was booked with another tour agency – causing us to miss the tour completely. Customer service not helpful with either company.

    May sound morbid or macabre but a great tour! Truly amazing the back story and our guide Brad was wonderful. The steps going down to the catacombs, can be tricky for some people due to the spiral staircase. It’s very cool down in the catacombs so you may want to bring a light sweater / shirt along. It’s truly incredible how many bones there are down here but at the end of the day….it doesn’t matter if you are rich or poor your bones are with all kinds of class. Which is funny when you think about how much emphasis the rich placed on their lives and how they looked down their noses at the lower class. Ha, the joke is on them as they are all together, You are not allowed to use a flash as it can damage the bones. There is lighting but it’s not very bright.

    This was a fascinating tour. The catacombs were created because of the overflow of the Paris cemeteries in the late 1700s. They actually brought the bones here and displayed them in artistic presentations. Some people were also buried here but most skeletons were transferred after previous burial. Our guide was very knowledgeable and pointed out many interesting things.

    This is an excellent tour and I cannot believe I forgot the guides name he had a heavy eastern european accent This tour allows you access to many parts of the catacombs that are off limits to the public. I do not think I would have enjoyed it without the tour as the guide gave so much background to the history. After a while you realize it is just a graveyard, but being in a tour added to the experience. The line to get in is crazy long too, we skipped in front of people who had been there 1-2 hours. They can only let in a certain amount of people at a time. You definitely want to pay for the tour and skip the line, worth the money.

    This was a wonderful tour for our family of four – boys are 13 and 16. It was about 1 hour and 45 minutes in length – totally doable for our family. Our group was maybe 12 in size. Our tour guide UL, or EL?? was very fun and knowledgeable and kept it short, sweet and interesting for all – you weren’t in one place too long while underground. Would def recommend your family to go and see!!

    Arrive about 10-15 minutes early, bring headphones (with a jack, not Bluetooth) for the tour. It is cool inside but definitely not freezing and unless you’re in pretty decent shape, you will get a workout climbing out. It is well worth the money to purchase skip the line passes.

    We had a great time visiting the Catacombs with John as our tour guide. It is one of the longest lines in Paris, so not only was it great to skip the line, but also amazing to learn about the history of Paris while inside the catacombs. John was very knowledgeable and did a great job teaching us about the catacombs. I would definitely recommend to anyone going.
