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 private guide directly in front of the Catacombs and wave those without priority access goodbye. Get ready for some steps and follow your eternally spooky guide into the depths of the city’s underbelly.
Learn the 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. You’ll also get to understand the odd repurposing of an abandoned underground quarry into Europe’s largest burial site!
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.
Follow your guide into off-limits areas and don’t be surprise when they lock the door behind your party… 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!
Finally, skeleton time has arrived! End this macabre tour with the bone-filled ossuary and ‘admire’ the vast chambers full of bones and skulls that are sure to intrigue all those with morbid fascinations, and the peculiar arrangements of bones that will surely intruige you! 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!
