This is one of the most fascinating tours I’ve taken. it would have been worth the wait in line but I’m glad we didn’t have to because it’s a long line. And from what I’ve read it stays long for most of the day.

Skipping the line was worth the extra $$. They did their best to get us in quickly and it was certainly a lot quicker than the regular line that wrapped around the block! I am thankful we paid the extra to make this experience so...More

My daughter wanted to tour and I think that many people typically enjoy it. The history is interesting but I was not particularly enthralled with the experience.

I waited in line for an hour, and moved about 25 meters. With hundreds of people still in front of me, I decided to leave and book a ticket online to skip the queue for later that afternoon. The people who pay to skip the...More

The history of these tunnels is fascinating. From limestone quarries to Ossaries. The audio guide has some great facts and stories. Worth a visit

The visit in itself is quite nice. The accumulation of bones is impressive, and the particular atmosphere is worth the visit. The information provided by the audio guides are interesting when you do not know about that part of Paris history. Now let's talk about...More

If you like thousands of bones piled up in neat stacks, you'll love the Paris Catacombs. Lots of skulls and femurs - but short on pelvic bones, ribs and spines. (No jokes about the French being spineless, please). There is quite a fascinating history here...More

Not much of a difference to be honest. It will be a personal guide instead of audio. I used audio guide and it was informative. Make sure you buy tickets in advance even if it just for a regular visit.
