    Warning don’t use this company

    I paid £75 and had to pay again at the door because the company did not send tickets with barcodes which are required for entry. We had to pay again and they refused to fully look into the issue or refund the purchase. This was a birthday gift and it ruined the day. Don’t book with these cowboys!!!!

    Walking through the empire of the dead

    This was an audio guided tour which was well worth it!. The narrow tunnels weren’t over crowded and there were staff at intervals throughout the tour. I am 5‘10“ and did have to duck my head in a couple sections because of low ceiling. The Information in the Audio Guide was well put together. When the tour is over and you come back above ground, you are about 1.5km away from where you started. It was a great tour with some really good history!

    The tickets and site say that we can skip the line but we had to wait in line anyway. To short & have to wait in line.

    Without any warning, our tour was cancelled for “technical reasons “. We were not told of the reason and we were not notified of the closing. We wasted our time.

    Highly recommended if you're trying to do as much as possible in Paris

    My wife and I prebooked this tour before we arrived just in case there was a line. There was a short line so I wouldn't say it was entirely necessary, but I recommend prebooking things like this as much as possible anyways (Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Normandy tour, etc.). I had forgotten our tour included the audio-guide so we skipped picking them up and went straight down after the bag-check. It's a long spiral staircase downwards followed by the long and windy catacombs. The informational displays were informative as well. Ends with an equally long spiral staircase back up. Highly recommend!

    Underwhelming

    A little underwhelming. Long stone spiral staircase down, then long, long empty corridors til we reached the catacombs. The audio guide was bothersome to start, advance, start again. We exited far away from the entrance and we’re totally lost. Had to find a taxi and just go back to hotel.

    Creepy but educational

    Length of the experience was sufficient. Not too claustrophobic, but very creepy nonetheless, recommend!

    It was great to see the long line and we just walked to the front at our scheduled time. The checkin process was very quick and easy. We loved the Catacombs !!!

    WARNING! lots of stairs

    A very interesting, and very informative day trip. There was lots of information about the history of the catacombs, and how they came about. It was easy to locate and access via public transport. I believe the optional headsets enhanced the experience and are very much worth it.

    Unique experience well worth it

    No wait with buy ahead tickets, looked like the line would have been about a half hour long m otherwise. Guided tour was nice, go at your own pace with audio recordings. Lots of steps down and back up (about 120 each) so keep that in mind. Great experience in the catacombs
