Skip-the-line into the Catacombs and see a darker side of Paris on a guided walking tour. Go deep under the streets of Paris and walk through tunnels made with the bones of 6 millions Parisians!
Dug out in the middle ages, the Catacombs were originally a quarry with hundreds of kilometers of tunnels which were burrowed underneath the streets of Paris. Then when the cemeteries became overfilled the city started moving the dead into the catacombs.
We have VIP access to parts of the catacombs where regular visitors cannot go. Join our small group tour and explore this wonderfully unique part of Paris. Discover more than a kilometer of tunnels and come away with memories to haunt you for a lifetime!
Includes a 30min

Catacombs and Versailles Bike Tour
We did the Catacombs and the Versailles Bike Tour with Blue Fox. Not waiting in the long, long lines at both are well worth the price by itself. However, the tour guides were superb, knowledgable, and fun. We highly recommend both tours for the entire family (it was my wife and I, along with our 17 and 15 year year olds).Read this review on Tripadvisor
This tour of the catacombs was fantastic. It is worth it to skip the long line for the entrance, but also the guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of French history as well.Read this review on Tripadvisor
I Liked It
Last week my daughter and I joined Kevin of Blue Fox Tours in the Catacombs of Paris. We had a lot of fun, and felt like we got a lot of great info that was interesting and entertaining. We were able to go into areas not open to visitors that were not on a tour. Best of all - we didn't have to stand in the 3 hour wait line! I enjoy taking a guided tour here and there during my travels, and I would recommend this one - it was great!Read this review on Tripadvisor

Tours run Rain or Shine. BBT reserves the right to cancel any of its tours in case of an Act of God. In such instances full refunds will be given to anyone who was not able to take their tour.
BBT offers a 100% refund if a reservation is cancelled more than 72 hours before the scheduled start of the tour. No refunds are given for ANY reason once within the 72 hrs prior to the scheduled tour.

All reservations made for children under the age of 18 years old must be made by an adult.
All reservations made for a child under the age of 18 years old must also include the reservation for an adult who will be 100% solely responsible for the safety and well being of the child while on the tour.
Every child under 13 partaking in a bicycle tour will be required to wear a helmet and a reflective vest by French Law.
The adult who accompanies the child(ren) agrees to the responsibility of choosing (a) properly sized helmet(s), adjusting the helmet(s), and keeping the helmet(s) on head(s) of the child(ren). Blue Bike Tours has helmets in multiple sizes for you to choose from.
Don't forget: Children (0-4) who will be riding in a child or baby seat attached to their parents bike ride for free, but MUST have had their seat reserved beforehand!
Children who will be riding on their own may be subject to a very short trial demonstration before the tour starts in which they will be expected to demonstrate: that they are well suited for their bike’s size and settings, that they know how to brake properly and that they are, in general, good cyclists who can be trusted to follow their Blue Bike Tours guide.
If the Blue Bike Tours guide, or manager, finds that the child is not, for any reason, a good cyclist then the guide, or manager, has the right to refuse to let the child follow the tour on a personal bike. This means they will either be asked to ride on one of our ‘tandems’ which is attached to that of an adult’s bike in a tandem fashion, OR even asked to ride in a child seat attached to the back of an adult’s bike. If the child refuses the change, then the guide or manager has the right to cancel the reservation, and not allow them on the tour.
If you or anyone in your party damages a vehicle, a Blue Bike, a child's bike, a helmet, a child seat, a ‘child tandem’ or any attachments, in such a way that it becomes badly disfigured, broken, or unusable, then BBT reserves the right to claim a fee of up to the price of the damaged vehicle or object.
