Amazing!

The queue was 5 hours long... even their ‘skip the line’ queue was lengthy but this, we got there, met Leo and we were in. Absolutely brilliant!

Leo was a fantastic guide. She was able to accommodate my booking for my wife’s surprise Xmas present at short notice. She was very passionate and knowledgeable and took pride in sharing this with us, answering any questions we had. The rest of the group were great too, it felt as though we were among friends.

We’d recommend seeing the Catacombs to anyone but only if you do it through Leo. The tour time is also longer than the standard tickets. We got about 2 hours exploration time!

A memory that will stay with us forever. Thank you Léo! 💀🌟

Really cool tour
It was just my husband and i for the tour, so we had our own private tour. Leo was friendly and full of cool facts about the catacombs. Really great tour!

Beautiful pictures of our engagement!
On our trip to Paris last week, my fiancé contacted Tripshooter to capture his proposal outside the Louvre. Hiring a photographer was a last minute decision (and I’m so glad he did!) so he emailed them the morning of and they were able to accommodate his request. Hadi waited outside in the pouring rain for about 30 minutes late at night for us to show up and acted like a tourist. He captured some really beautiful pictures of the whole moment starting before I even knew what was happening, to my fiancé down on one knee, and our celebratory hugs and kisses after I said yes! Then he came up and introduced himself and we took some more posed and candid pictures around the Louvre and on the streets of Paris. The pictures turned out truly amazing and we could not be more happy with them! Everyone we have shared them with has been really impressed with how great they are! We would highly recommend trip shooter to capture your special moments!

Worth getting a guide
Leo was really knowledgable and made our tour of Père Lachaise much more interesting and worthwhile. Definitely get a guide. Other people in the cemetery looked a little lost without one.

Leo (aka Eleonore) is amazing!
Leo who gave us the tour (appears on this website as Eleonore but goes by Leo) was so great. She was very very knowledgable on the catacombs and not just the history but more current events to do with the catacombs as well. She brings a big binder to show you pictures and maps to give context to the stories she tells you. She points out how to identify different things about the bones and does a really good job of making sure everybody gets a change to see. She also sends out a primer email a bit before the tour so you have a copy of the ticket if you need it, you know where to meet, what shoes to wears, practical information about the museum. Leo probably knows every bone in the catacombs and she is passionate about all of them.

Amazing Experience
We had the best time with Léo! She is a fantastic guide with an obvious love for the catacombs and the history. The tour was above and beyond what we expected in terms of information provided and the amount of time. Léo took us into areas that are not accessible to the general public and we did not have to wait in the very long line. If you want a personal tour from a top notch guide this is the tour for you! Léo stayed in constant contact with us and provided updates with our fail. She also went above and beyond with advice on other sights to see and help with directions on the Metro system.

Beautiful Champagne countryside
We enjoyed our day in Champagne, and tasted some wonderful wines as well as a nice lunch at one of the champagne houses. Our van picked us up in front of our apartment, and we were off!
The driver seemed to be a bit preoccupied with the lovely ladies in the front seat. (who could blame him, they were young and beautiful)
We were dropped off in a central part of Paris one that took us a bit to get our bearings, and decide how to get back to the part of Paris we were staying in.

Great experience exploring Paris catacombs with a local guide
My son and I really enjoyed the tour with our guide Leo (Eleonore). Time went by so quickly, it felt we were down there for few minutes rather the 1.5 hrs. Leo was casual and easy to talk to. She is clearly passionate about the topic and waved in number of stories from the past and current about the 'cataphiles', people who explore co called "negative Paris".
We are glad we choose this group tour. We went inside exactly at the scheduled time vs waiting in the line and Leo's personalized commentary made it very engaging. We also had an access to parts open to groups only.
In conclusion- a bit pricey but we are glad we did it. Great memories.

Fantastic guide, fantastic tour
The catacombs tour led by Leo (Eleanor) is amazing. You get some history, some laughs and even a ghost story. The setting is like nothing I've ever seen before and Leos tour makes it more fun and less creepy.
I would definitely recommend this tour and this guide!

Excellent Tour, excellent guide Leo, so much information, anecdotes...

I recommend!
As it turned out, I had a private tour because 3 other people did not show up. So that was pretty great, and so was my tour guide, Leo (Eleonore), who was very knowledgeable and genuinely interested in the history and preservation of the catacombs.

Terrific Catacombs Tour
This was a very good tour! It was really cool going underground and seeing millions of bones and walking through the underground tunnels. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour very worrthwhile.

Wrong address
The address in both the confirmation email and the voucher were both wrong so we went to the wrong address. By the time it was as clear what had happened the tour group was long gone. I was told no refunds. HUGELY DISAPPOINTED

A Must Do In Paris with Leo!
Leo's tour of the Catacombs is fantastic and if you have any interest in seeing them, this is the way to go! She was easy to communicate with when we had questions before booking the tour, with information after booking and on the day of the tour. We met her outside the metro station and she took us right inside - no line! (And the line had to be at least a couple of hours long on a very hot day). Leo spent 2 hours taking us through the catacombs, giving us the history, pointing out the really cool stuff and telling us great stories - she really knows her stuff! Don't hesitate to book this tour - you will love it!

Fascinating Tour of Paris Catacombs with Leo
Our tour through “likealocalguide”, 16 yr old daughter and dad, to the Paris catacombs this past weekend with Leo (Eléonore) was absolutely fascinating made possible because of Leo. She is amazing and passionate about the catacombs and it shows through her extensive knowledge of the history of the site. One huge note: book this tour (with Leo of course) as the line to get in without “skip the line” was insane. Had to be at least close to a 2 hr wait. She was able to take us, small group of about 12-15, to areas not accessible to the general public. The catacombs is more than just about the bones and Leo explained all of this in clear details with rich antidotes. Amazing 2 hr tour for both of us. Do yourself a huge favor and select likealocalguide as your tour company and choose Leo as your guide.
