Take advantage of this ticket that gives you fast-track access to the Catacombs of Paris with a small group. Explore parts of the catacombs that are usually closed to the public. Special underground gates will be unlocked just for you, and a guide will tell you all about the lives of the catacomb's six million inhabitants.

As the only person who ended up reserving this guided tour, I was extremely lucky to have such a unique and personal tour. Mathieu was fantastic at blending the history of the catacombs with his own personal experiences and more modern day connections. And if you are debating between the tour or just doing the free audio guide, this tour unlocks areas of the catacombs that you do not want to miss! Best way to see Paris on Halloween, thanks Mathieu!
