We were part of a small group with a guide. The tour began at the stated time and lasted for over 45 minutes. Our guide had excellent English (even through a mask) and explained everything clearly, answering questions as we went. The catacombs are massive and the tour was only able to cover the important parts. The catacombs themselves are really impressive and it's history is very interesting. If I had a complaint (too strong a word), it would be that I wanted to see more. The catacombs are quite a way from the city centre. We walked and it was a LONG walk! I would advise checking public transport or arrange a taxi. We got a bus back. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
