The hop on hop off bus tour is not worth a penny. The connections for the headsets did not work (I tested several connections), the bus driver did not stop at the stops mentioned, the staff were very unfriendly and unmotivated, etc. The office, where the pockets should be fetched, had to wait an hour long search. If the tour of the catacombs had not been good, I would have given 0 stars. However, I assume that another provider would have managed it that way.

the Catacombs are a mysterious and very interesting place and the visit is very well commented by guides in the language of each of the visitors. Our guide spoke French very well.

The tour of the catacombs was very good, especially since there were only three of us. The hop on and off bus tour was nothing. The headphone connections are broken, the bus is dirty, loud and rickety. The stops are not recognizable.
