ITINERARY

Plumb the shadowy depths of Paris as we dig up the City of Light’s darkest secrets. This two-hour group tour gives you skip-the-line access to one of the most unique sightseeing experiences on the planet.
Hidden deep within a maze of underground tunnels you’ll find a spine-tingling discovery: millions of skeletons arranged in bizarre and enigmatic configurations. Who are they? How did they get there? While most tours only scratch the surface, our passionate guides peel back the layers of the Catacombs to reveal bone-chilling tales of murder, massacre, revolution, and a few ghost stories of course!
Meet your guide at the Catacombs entrance and avoid the wait with your skip-the-line access. Following the long descent into the depths of the city’s underbelly, you’ll begin with an introduction as you stand in a former WWII bomb shelter.
Your guide will explain the origin of the tunnels, telling a fascinating story of how Paris was on the precipice of destruction in the 18th century and how one man was given the task of saving it. Your underground adventure will officially kick off as you meander from one shadowy walkway to the next, stopping to admire secret details that are visible only to the trained eye.
Your guide will have access to off-limits areas where you’ll discover curiosities including coded inscriptions, links to the intrigues of the French royal court, remnants of the French Revolution, and much more. Thanks to your exclusive access you’ll also discover the surprising result of a quarry worker who indulged in a secret artistic project deep beneath Paris, one that most never see. We can’t tell you more—we’d ruin the surprise!
Once you’ve entered the bone-filled ossuary, like a scene from your favorite horror flick you’ll encounter vast chambers full of bones and skulls that are sure to intrigue all those with morbid fascinations. Listen as your guide evokes the legends and spirits of some of the notable historical figures who have found their final resting place in the Catacombs.
