    We had an excellent guide, Raphaelle who was able to provide an extremely interesting tour with access to restricted areas. Our 14 and 16 year old girls really enjoyed it, as did my wife and I. We highly recommend taking this tour with Raphaelle.

    Took a taxi from the other side of town, We arrived 10 minutes early. At our scheduled time our guide was a no show, sent a message to our guide they sent a text back that guide was a few minutes away 15 minutes later still no one , sent another message no answer, sent another they said guide was busy 5 minutes away. We said forget it you wasted our day, we could have had other plans. Booking person then proceeded to tell us that she has to wait for customers who are late all the time. (I thought I paid over $600 for the tour not them) Did not apologize or even offer us another date, which we probably would have taken. WORSE TOUR WE HAVE EVER BOOKED!!!!!!!!!!!
    Worth it

    Tatiana was an amazing guide, with unique stories about Paris and the catacombs. I highly recommend the tour especially if you can request her!
    Alberto is a great guide!...

    Alberto is a great guide! He had so much knowledge about the catacombs, we really enjoyed the tour. We learned so much from him… history of Paris, original use of catacombs and who’s bones might be among the many.
