I came specifically from London for the day just to see Catacombs again! Our guide, Krysta, was knowledgable and witty. She did a great job pointing out things I hadn't seen/remembered from a prior tour. The highlight of this tour is being able to visit "secret" areas within the Catacombs that the general public do not have access to. It is a fascinating exploration of the history of Paris that most never see. This tour requires a fair amount of walking (over 1 mile) and is not for those persons with claustrophobia (fear of enclosed small spaces). Also note there are NO bathrooms down below in the Catacombs. This tour took approximately 2 hours.

Tour guide krysta? Was great quirky sense of humor, good english and knowledge, had some stories and tour was worth it to see the restricted/special areas not open to general public. Highly recommend Krysta and Walks (been on few of their tours and liked them all)
