Frequently Asked Questions
Where to meet?
In front of Café Oz, at the exit of the Denfert-Rochereau Metro. A representative will be there holding a sign with our company name on it.
What to bring?
We always recommend comfortable walking shoes on all of our tours. The temperature inside the Catacombs is always around 14°C/57°F, no matter what time of year, so it's a good idea to bring a light sweater. Also, the only bathroom break is at the end so please show up prepared and ready to tour!
Q: I've heard about the Paris Catacombs calling strikes at the last minute. Does this really happen?
A: On occasion, landmarks in Paris, such as the Paris Catacombs, decide to strike. Often, the intention to strike is not communicated to tour operators until the day of the strike. In the event that the Paris Catacombs go on strike when your tour scheduled, we will do our best to accommodate you on another Catacombs tour the following day. If this is not possible, we will provide you with a full refund.

Awesome and informative!
Leo was our guide and she was great! Very knowledgeable and fun. We not only got to skip the line, but we also got to explore areas of the catacombs that were not available to the public and hear cool and interesting stories about those spots. Would highly recommend!
A true hit with us
The only way to really see and understand the Catacombs is with a skip the line tour, Our guide met us ( the group was about 15 people) and then took us down the many steps. NO waiting - the line is usually 2 hours. She outlined the history of the underground, the city walls and finally the reburial and catacombs. The space is vast and no creepy. The bones are artfully arranged and in a respectful manner. Many more steps up. but definitely a highlight of the entire trip.
What an amazing experience! So worth it for anyone who is into a spooky experience!
