We loved hearing all the historical facts during our Catacombs tour. Our guide was so personable and congenial. She involved everyone that was on the tour with us and she was so full of energy. Her excitement made us want to hear what she had to say.

Christa was our tour guide and she was by far the best tour guide we’ve ever had. She was knowledgeable and humorous, which made the experience that much better. My wife and I would book a tour with this company anywhere else.

Very interesting tour and experience. Our tour guide (Kristin) was very informative about the catacombs and allowed for enough time to take it all in plus take pictures.

Krysta was phenomenal! Do NOT go without a tour guide as people looked bored wandering through the passages. Our tour was anything but boring, she added a lot of historical and present day context to this amazing place. A must see place and tour.

Guide met us at the right time and place. We toured the catacombs and received a good background for the reasons behind the creation of the catacombs. Kaitlyn was our guide and she did a great job. Our 2 girls 12 and 13 enjoyed it.

We were looking forward to this tour from the moment we started planning our vacation to Paris. Booking through Viator made everything so easy.

Katelyn, our guide, made the time we spent with her fun by slathering clever puns throughout her presentation, using her deep knowledge and obvious interest in the subject matter to entertain and inform. The stories she told (The bones of rich, famous and infamous Parisians mingled with commoners! Secret clubs hidden in the myriad tunnels! The sheer number of the dead housed within the site!) truly brought the catacombs to life.

The tour included a couple of areas not open to the general public - worth the cost of the tour just to see these hidden gems.

Great tour by Michelle. No waiting in line. Entertaining and informative. It was nice to see the private areas not open to general public. Highly recommend.

We thought it was limited to 12 people. Way too many people in the group. Guide would talk to people who were in the front and those in the back couldn’t hear.
