Knowing Paris inside-out comes with years of exploring, but above all a passion for discovering all the magic that a city has to offer. Our city guides are selected for their insatiable love for Paris, and their desire to share it with our visitors. Leaving no stone unturned, our guides are always ready to go the extra mile to ensure that those who explore with them get to discover the Paris that truly makes them tick.
Meet your guide at the Catacombs entrance and avoid the wait with your skip-the-line access. Following the long descent into the depths of the city’s underbelly, you’ll begin with an introduction as you stand in a former WWII bomb shelter.
Your guide will explain the origin of the tunnels, telling a fascinating story of how Paris was on the precipice of destruction in the 18th century and how one man was given the task of saving it. Your underground adventure will officially kick off as you meander from one shadowy walkway to the next, stopping to admire secret details that are visible only to the trained eye.
Your guide will have access to off-limits areas where you’ll discover curiosities including coded inscriptions, links to the intrigues of the French royal court, remnants of the French Revolution, and much more. Thanks to your exclusive access you’ll also discover the surprising result of a quarry worker who indulged in a secret artistic project deep beneath Paris, one that most never see. We can’t tell you more—we’d ruin the surprise!
Once you’ve entered the bone-filled ossuary, like a scene from your favorite horror flick you’ll encounter vast chambers full of bones and skulls that are sure to intrigue all those with morbid fascinations. Listen as your guide evokes the legends of some of the notable historical figures—and their spirits—who have found their final resting place in the Catacombs.
Romain was AMAZING!!! I will 100% be recommending him to our friends! Our Louvre tour was one of my kids favorite things we did and they said it was because of Romain.
Highly recommend. Private tour is a great way to get more personalized insights on Paris history. Guide was very knowledgeable. Will definitely use again.
We have done several tours with Localers and they are definitely worth the money! We are pretty independent travelers, but there is no substitute for local knowledge. Localers has the best guides!
I did 2 tours with Localers and would enthusiastically do more when I return to Paris. The main reason is the quality of the tours themselves, the fact they are authentic experiences, and you learn so much!
