I love how big the catacombs were and how you were able to freely explore without a guide, (aside for the audio guide of course.) which I did have some issues with. The screen wasn't allowing me to click on the specific things I wanted to click on, which was a bit frustrating. But other than that, amazing experience. If you are interested in the catacombs or history you'll love this experience.

Booking online was very easy and half the price of TripAdvisor. The catacomb staff weren't very friendly, but they're Parisians, so that's not surprising. Otherwise, the visit was interesting and instructive with the audio guide.

Ticketing experience was great. We had never used Headout before, but will definitely be using them again on future trips. Catacombs were a very interesting tour. Nothing like we had ever done previously, and a different look into the history of Paris! Would highly recommend

The Catacoombs are an amazing experience, quite sobering but yet powerful to the respect that humans can show to the dead and their mortal remains. The information about the history of the Catacoombs provided was very informative and gave a respectful insight to the history and how they came to exist. My only negative was that the ticket sent via email failed to open and I had to make contact via your app for it to be retrieved. Thank you to Shindi, she provided excellent customer service to get my ticket to me. I had started to believe I had been scammed and wasted my money. The lady at the entry point to the Catacoombs was very patient to me.

Paris' Catacombs

Climb down 20 meters below the ground using 130 steps to visit the 2-kilometer-long tunnel arranged in a maze. What makes it unique? The catacombs are the final resting place of millions of Parisians. Venture through the tunnels and learn about the incredible history behind the ossuary and its architecture. The audio guide accompanying you will take you through the journey sharing the story behind why and how it all came to be and explaining what you are seeing.

Montparnasse walking tour

Start your journey on foot, at Boulevard du Montparnasse, the hub of artistic souls in the early 20th century and a charming Parisian neighborhood rich in history. Explore the popular places frequented by Jean Cocteau, Pablo Picasso, and Ernest Hemingway during their time here and get to know fascinating facts from your guide. Rue Delambre is the next stop on your journey. The place has yet again a rich history and the famous Auberge de Venise or the Dingo bar which happened to be the spot you would want to visit if you were an American writer from the ‘Lost Generation. This is in fact the place where Ernest Hemingway met Scott Fitzgerald.

Next up is Place de Josephine Baker where you can learn about the incredible life and work of the first African-American woman to star in a motion picture. See The Sphinx or Le Sphinx which used to be a functional brothel during the 1930s and 40s, preferred by the rich masses. Proceed to The Monocle, the Parisian Lesbian nightclub. It is the symbol of changing times and social acceptance along with reinstating Paris as the romantic city it is. The last stop away from the romantic aura of the city lies Montparnasse Cemetery where the popular men and women from history rest in peace. Some of the graves you can pay a visit to include Charles Baudelaire, Guy de Maupassant, Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, and Charles Garnier.
