Skip the Line: Paris Catacombs Small Group Tour

Under the Paris of today lies another city that few have experienced. Follow your guide on this 2-hour tour as you embark on a unique and mysterious quest through this city of the dead, unearthing all of the deep secrets that lay hidden in the underbelly of Paris.

Bypass the crowds as you enjoy skip-the-line access, and let a passionate local guide lead the way on your dark adventure. Head down into this endless network of underground stone quarries that house the Catacombs, a macabre installation of carefully stacked bones, and the secrets of the Paris of old.

The Catacombs is home to the remains of several legendary figures in French history, including the Man in the Iron Mask and guillotine victims such as the infamous revolutionary Robespierre.

Fascinating sculptures left behind by quarryman Décure will surprise and delight as you work your way through this subterranean maze in search of its hidden details.

Hat sich gelohnt
Sehr netter Guide (Alberto). Schön auch Teile zu sehen, die sonst für die Öffentlichkeit nicht zugänglich sind. Allerdings sehr teuer, deshalb ein Stern weg.

Very informative with some creepy history
This was a great tour. Not only do you get a complete history of the catacombs, but you get to travel though some of the closed off locations you wouldn't be able to access if you paided for the standard entrance fee. I would definitely suggest this to anyone who wants to see the catacomb of Paris.

Efficient with some bonus sites
Great way to skip a massive line. The tour helps you breeze through the walk without needing to stop and read the signs. You get to go to several areas not on the public tour. Money well spent. Would recommend to a friend.

Wow! Don't miss this tour!
Wonderful guide & most interesting tour! Buy your ticket ahead of time as there is usually always a super long line to get into the catacombs. I've been to Paris several times & had never seen the catacombs--well worth going to! Can now cross this one off my bucket list!

Excellent tour guide! Very informative and good at keeping everyone engaged, especially with the large group. Would recommend to anyone who is interested in the Catacombs. Worth every penny for the enthusiastic tour guide and access to extra areas. Thanks!

Spannend und gruslig
Der Guid hat es verstanden die Leute mitzureißen, war witzig und sehr freundlich. Auch wenn es nicht ganz so viel zu sehen gab wie erhofft, kann ich die Tour trotzdem sehr empfehlen, zumal man etwas mehr sieht, als der normale Besucher.

I wouldn't recommend going WITHOUT a tour!
We were able to book this last minute and it worked out perfectly. We met our tour group in front of the entrance, but there was a little confusion due to a lot of people being in line for individuals. However, once we were inside things went very smoothly. The tour guide was amazing and knew so much about the Catacombs. Without the tour guide we wouldn't have had any idea what we were looking at or any of the history behind the Catacombs. I highly recommend this trip!

Amazing tour, great guide.
This is a tour I would recommend to everybody who visits Paris. It's a great way to learn a lot about the city in a very peculiar way. It's not only about skulls and bones, there's quite a bit of interesting history down there.

Such an interesting tour, me and my 12 year old son loved it. Our guide Alberto was brilliant, he knew all the facts and was friendly and humorous. The main queue was a 2 hour wait, we went straight in and had the best time.

Awesome tour!
After reading many prior customer reviews, I decided to book this tour. No issues whatsoever finding our extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide named Alberto. It was relieving to skip through the line so easily to the main enterance after seeing how far back the regular line was to get in. Loved every second of the tour! Our guide was hilarious and knew a multitude of facts about the catacombs that I wasn't expecting. I booked one other tour (Lourve skip the line tour) through this website for my vacation two weeks ago and was extremely pleased with both tours. I will be highly recommending this website and tour to all of my friends traveling to Europe in the future. Thanks for making my first European vacation memorable!

One of best tours in Paris
We were very pleased we'd bought a Skip the Line ticket before we left New Zealand. We wouldn't have wanted to wait in the VERY long line that was queued almost round the block. Why don't people buy Skip the line tickets. It was So easy. Many thanks.

Entertaining and educational
Without Corey to guide us through the catacombs, it would've been a bunch of tunnels and some skeletons. We originally booked to avoid the 3 hour line up - what we got was much more. I'm not a fan of tours... I just have to get that out of the way. But our guide was exceptional. It was the right balance of education, entertainment and pace. Thanks.
