I love how big the catacombs were and how you were able to freely explore without a guide, (aside for the audio guide of course.) which I did have some issues with. The screen wasn't allowing me to click on the specific things I wanted to click on, which was a bit frustrating. But other than that, amazing experience. If you are interested in the catacombs or history you'll love this experience.

Booking online was very easy and half the price of TripAdvisor. The catacomb staff weren't very friendly, but they're Parisians, so that's not surprising. Otherwise, the visit was interesting and instructive with the audio guide.

Ticketing experience was great. We had never used Headout before, but will definitely be using them again on future trips. Catacombs were a very interesting tour. Nothing like we had ever done previously, and a different look into the history of Paris! Would highly recommend

The Catacoombs are an amazing experience, quite sobering but yet powerful to the respect that humans can show to the dead and their mortal remains. The information about the history of the Catacoombs provided was very informative and gave a respectful insight to the history and how they came to exist. My only negative was that the ticket sent via email failed to open and I had to make contact via your app for it to be retrieved. Thank you to Shindi, she provided excellent customer service to get my ticket to me. I had started to believe I had been scammed and wasted my money. The lady at the entry point to the Catacoombs was very patient to me.

On the day of your experience, take your mobile voucher to the entrance at the Catacombs, scan your ticket, and gain entrance to the Catacombs. Once entered, venture 20 meters (65 feet) underground, into one of the city’s most enticing attractions.

After descending 130 steps, you’ll land on a gravel pathway. From here, allow your audio guide, available in English, German, Spanish, and French, to lead you through a one-way, 2km stretch of the mysterious ossuary. Explore the ancient past of Paris as you make your way along a maze of walls lined with skulls and bones. Learn all about how the Catacombs came to be and discover the role they’ve played on the city’s past and present. Hear urban legends, ghost stories, and tales about secret Cataphile parties. At the end of your tour, climb up 83 steps and make your way out of the dark, back to The City of Lights.
