A well conducted tour with the experience a once in a lifetime. The millions of bodies bones here and the method of storage of their bones is a sight to see. The catacombs seem to go on forever, however, the overall burial has been well planned and methodically undertaken over the years. Our tour guide was well experienced and provided good commentary along the way. A fascinating tour and whilst one could see this as morbid, it really is a very interesting tour to undertake. Well worth the experience.

Can't remember our guide's name, but he was very nice and extremely knowledgeable and gave lots of great info! It was really nice to have access to some of the exclusive areas not available to the general public. Just know that if you are at all claustrophobic, the catacombs will not be for you. Also, the stairs down and then back up are quite steep and uneven and will have your heart racing.
