The catacombs are left in their "original" condition (whatever is left after the poor times of the post-soviet times) which was already great; no lights added which means you are walking around with a torch. Irina had great stories to share (in English) and made...More

It was such a different experience underground. Rumours say that there are lots of catacombs but guides can just show you a few. Very dark and cold tunnels. Don't forget to bring your flashlight.

Booking experience: booked the tour through Viator (who were very helpful), but the company wouldn't respond to emails or phone calls for two days. Not impressive at all, and very stressful for me. I thought I'd bought into a scam. They finally emailed me the...More
