Our private tour guide Kaitlyn was the best. She was very knowledgeable and funny. The tour was a little creepy but different. Best tour guide??

Anatome was a great tour guide and gave us amazing facts. Self guided tour would have worked but having that personalized escort was much better.

It was brilliant. Lily, our guide was excellent - very engaging, really informative and organised. We were allowed access to areas of the catacombs that you don't see on the public tour. Really recommend this.
