Super informative without being too much. Igor was a great guide, super funny and personable. No queuing and some VIP parts of the tour. It was the perfect experience of the catacombs.

So good. Fun and informative. We were late due to a mixup in our schedule and they were so accommodating.

Very interesting tour. The guide was terrific and very informative.
Fascinating place, not something you see everyday.

Really enjoyed this tour a few days ago. The guide did an excellent job giving our group all of the information we were hoping for. One small issue was that the tour was oversold. Thus, before departing on the tour, people in the group were asked if they wouldn't mind canceling/being reimbursed their tour fee. This put everyone in an awkward, frustrated mood. No one said yes (because everyone had planned and looked forward to the experience). Luckily the tour was able to still take place, but with 4-5 extra attendees.

The tour guide never showed up! I tried calling them (voicemail), contacting them through Viator's system (no response), and afterwards I tried emailing them asking them why they never came (still no answer). I am very frustrated. I feel like this company is a scam and i have just been ghosted! Do not book this tour. They are unreliable!

Due to the strikes, the catacombs were closed at the time of the tour. The tour guide did not show up indicating they knew it was closed. But they made the decision not to notify us. On top of that, both the tour company and Viator have ignored all correspondence asking for a full refund. Go elsewhere is the advice based on our experience.

Very disappointed; we were told that we were not on the guides list and were turned away. I expect to get a refund. We didn't get to see the catacombs. Tried calling viator and there was no reply and mailbox was full so we couldn't leave a message.

First off, I want to be clear that my rating is for the tour operator, not the specific guide. In fact, if not for the Guide's persistence, my family of 4 would have been kicked off of this tour. I booked and PAID FOR this tour on September 6th. The date of the tour was December 24th. I had a couple email exchanges with the tour operator before the tour commenced, and they never suggested to me that there would be any issues with it. When we meet the Guide at the Catacombs, we were informed that the tour had been "Oversold". No one volunteered to quit the tour, so the Guide said the the Owner of the tour company told her that my party was the last to book, so we would not be allowed to join the tour! They had my $350 for over 3 months, and now they think they can just refuse me what I paid them for? Fortunately the Guide was able to get the Catacombs staff to allow our larger group to go through the Catacombs. I would highly recommend that you book your tours with one of the many other providers, If you want to be secure in the plans you have made and paid for!
