It was pretty good. My friend had a hard time with the guide. Even thought he spoke english, it was with a heavy French accent. I had no problem.

Rushed Tour After Late Arrivals

Our tour guide waited 30 minutes past the start time for a group to arrive. Due to the late start, our tour was rushed. This is the only tour I have been a part of that waits 30 minutes for late arrivals.

The lines for the Catacombs can be extremely long, even during the low tourist season when we visited Paris - it's worth booking just for the Skip-the-Line access, although Alberto was a really good guide and definitely added to the experience you also get to visit certain areas that aren't accessible on the self-guided walking tour.

Great tour! Its a nice Idea to bring your own small flashlight, and make sure that your camera can handle low light conditions without using a flash. Your going to get great photos if prepared for it. For tall people; dont hit your head!
