St Sebastain is the best tour. Very few tourists and lots of other stuff in the church. There is Bernini's last sculpture, Roman Ruins etc.You won't be disappointed. No tour necessary.

Here is the direct link to my description of the five catacombs:

tripadvisor.com/…52756440

None of the catacombs attracts big crowds except San Callisto; I've been to all five, and to three of them multiple times. I didn't find San Sebastiano to be terribly interesting, certainly not as interesting as the Priscilla or Sant'Agnese catacombs.
