Our licensed guides share local and historical details that bring the Catacombs to life! Don't squander this once in a lifetime opportunity.
Are there miles of tunnels full of bones underneath your feet in Paris? Do you really wait up to 3 hours in high season to enter the Paris Catacombs? The answer is "yes" to both of the questions above. The Tour Guy has made it simple for those of you who don't want a fully guided tour and would prefer to enter on your own accord. You can purchase just a ticket to skip the line and enter.
Imagine a city having so little grave space that they needed to create a full underground network of tunnels solely dedicated to burying the dead. Now imagine this “Empire of the Dead” having detailed art installations composed fully of skeletal remains. Home to the remains of more than 6 million bodies, the Paris Catacombs provide the perfect dark and eerie to balance with the beauty of the City of Light.

I was travelling to Paris with my family and waiting in a long line with three teenagers isn't ideal. It was definitely worth getting skip the line tickets and the tour guy made it super easy! I wouldn't want to waste my time waiting.
Didn't want to miss the Catacombs again!
The first time I was in Paris I skipped the Catacombs because the line was over a 3 hour wait and we decided against it. I didn't want to let that happen again! I'm glad I found these because I went straight in didn't waste my time waiting in the line. We would definitely recommend! They're easy and save you so much time while you're traveling.
The biggest thing I need to see in Paris is the Catacombs. They made it very easy and emailed me the tickets directly. I can't wait for my trip!

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.
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 during your entry time, we will do our best to accommodate you on another Catacombs entrance the following day. If this is not possible, we will provide you with a full refund.
