What people are saying about Catacombs of St. Callixtus

We are really glad we chose to do this on our last day of three weeks in Rome. Something totally different. Heads up though, don’t expect to see skulls and bones like Paris, these tombs have been looted or the bodies moved so they are empty… still stunning though, we give it a thumbs up!

The Golf Cart Catacombs and Sightseeing tours were well worth the time. Our driver/guide was extremely knowledgeable and made the tour fascinating. He also possessed a lot of patience as he worked his way through the Rome traffic while making sure we were all safe and comfortable.

Took the tour to the Catacombs. Very impressed with the guides knowledge of all the city sites. Wonderful guide! Very informative. Absolutely worth the $$. One of best tours we took!
