  • David our guide was extremely informative on the origins, restoration and subsequent use of the catacombs. Beating the long, long queue waiting outside was very appreciated as it was very cold. I highly recommend this tour!

  • Great tour, definitely needed the skip the line...holy cow lots of people. Tour guide was very informative.

  • Not a guided tour so we were on our own. Cool but not worth the price.

  • It was a great tour and Stephen was very informative. Definitely worth taking the tour to see the special rooms no one else can see, made it even more worth it!

  • This was the best tour of our trip! Must do. Great history and our guide Egor was awesome! Definitely worth skip the line. we got to see 2 areas that the regular tour does not do plus the line outside was long even in January and we didn't wait at all.

  • Excellent views. Crowded and not spooky enough

  • Great tour guide, knew his stuff, and very friendly. Its not a cheap tour, so you would have to be really into the catacombs. When we were there the line was what we thought very long, but the staff said that it can be 3 times that amount, so the skip the line pass was worth it as we would have spent half our day there standing in line.

  • Guide was fantastic. Totally worth the extra few dollars for the guided tour with a couple areas that are not on the self guided tour. Skip the line cuts the wait form hours to about 30 minutes on the day we were there.Amazing experience to see this type of history first hand.If you can't handle tight spaces this is not the tour for you.

  • Great tour!

  • Loved this tour. Our tour guide was excellent and very informative. Would definitely recommend.
