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.

Could not have been better
Regular ticket line was 5 hour wait on the day we went...we got there 10 minutes before tour started...easy to find place...there is a glass entrance door...tour guide was there...took our tickets and 5 minutes later...off we went down the spiral staircase of I believe 130 steps which were very easy to handle no matter what age...tour guide was a bubbly woman with great personality and lots of information to share...highly recommend this tour...we were 20 people and went into rooms normal ticket holders do not get to go in

Sehr zu empfehlen!
Super Führerin, welche sehr gut englisch (und spanisch) sprach, die Führung war informativ und kurzweilig, die Katakomben sind definitiv einen Besuch wert.

Lovely experience. Learned more about the french revolution in this 2h than I did during my school-years. Our guide Randa was incredible! So worth the money! Otherwise we would have had to stand in line for 4-5h to get in. This was perfect.

Våra namn hade inte kommit med på guidens lista. Hon kunde inget göra något för hon hade fullt. Vi ringde numret som fanns på vår bokning och efter en massa strul kunde vi gå med för att där var en familj som inte dök upp. Vi skulle flyga hem på kvällen så där fanns liksom inga alternativ. Det kändes stressande och olustigt innan vi fick besked att det gick. Ingen kul upplevelse. Själva guidningen var bra. Bokar inte med dessa igen.

Well worth it.
What a fantastic tour. So much information that you would never know walking through the Catacombs on your own. Also the curiosity and disappointment of the people not on the tour as we went through locked doors to see extra special sites. It was also a bonus skipping the long line. Can't remember our tour guides name but she was so passionate about the subject, she made it really interesting. Our tour was 21/07/18 at 11.30. Would definately recomend to anyone wanting to visit the Catacombs of Paris.

Really fun!
It was nice skipping the 6-hour line and getting to take a small tour of just 10 people. The guide was nice and the catacombs are very interesting. I highly recommend booking this. Seriosuly. The line wrapped around almost an entire time and we went at 11h30 so unless you want to literally spend ALL DAY standing in a circle around a park in Paris, BOOK AHEAD

Sehr gute Führung, mit detaillierten informationen
Wer die Katakomben besuchen möchte, sollte diese Tour wählen da man ohne große Wartezeit reinkommt, gerade zur Hauptsaison ist die Schlange sehr lang. Die Tour führt auch hinter verschlossene Türen, hinter die man als normaler Besucher nicht reinkommt.

Excellent Tour of the Catacombs
I was relieved that I didn't have to be in the long queue that circled around the entrance to the catacombs. Alfredo was on time and took us through the catacombs whilst explaining the history and legends. A thoroughly enjoyable tour!

A great introduction to underground Paris
Although this is a lot more expensive saving a two hour wait by skipping the queue and having Roberto (aka Alberto) guide us through the history of this amazing place far exceeded our expectations. Well worth the time and the Euros. The visits to the restricted areas were a highlight. Alberto's knowledge and friendly demeanour made for a great 2 hours

Great tour and Alberto was a great guide!
It was good to book this tour because we didn't have to queue for the catacombs and we had a great tour guide who told us a lot about the history and some spooky stories.

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!

Spectacular
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.
