Tug was a fantastic guide through the Catacombs of Paris. The historical and whimsical presentation was fun and entertaining. Going VIP through the secret locations was extra special. Thank you Tug!!

We were able to go into parts of the catacombs we wouldn’t have been able to visit without a guide. Definitely worth it!

Great experience! Loved seeing the additional areas not open to the public. Paolo is funny and very informed. I would 100% book another tour with him!

Paolo was very informative, you really got to know what everything meant. The catacombs weren’t even what I expected but better! I don’t think we would of been able to learn as much if it wasn’t for him! We also got to see some places that weren’t open to the public and that was super awesome!

We had a wonderful experience with Paolo! Our family consisted of ages from 70-15 and everyone enjoyed our time on the tour. Paolo was super friendly greeting all his guest and is a great story teller. Was great to see additional areas not on the main tour and learn more. Paolo was helpful in giving guests a true sense of the history and provided lots of context. We would definitely sign up for another one of Paolo’s tours during our next trip to Paris.
