Entrance under the tourist office. Probably for safety reasons, only a small portion of the underground quarry is open for the tour. Lots of information, but nothing of any substantial value. 12° C in the tunnels under the Place des Heros, a bonus as it was below zero outside.

As on of the top attractions of Arras i had hoped this would be a little more exciting. The tour lasted about 45 mins and there were some interesting points but nothing to really make you want to go back or highly recommend to others. The tour guide was ok and she did her very best with a difficult crowd,... More

This 45 minute tour takes you under Arras into the quarry tunnels. Whilst it's interesting, it's made a little tedious by having mixed language tours, and as the commentary his fairly lengthy, and is repeated in different languages, if you don't have an engaging tour guide it can become quite dull! Still, it's not a bad rainy day activity, and... More

We had a bilingual tour in English and French, with Naomi, who was very knowledgeable. Very interesting to see all the tunnels, and amazing how big they are! Worth a visit.

If you don't speak French, Google as much information as you can before you go. Our guide had very basic English. Her explanations in French would last 2 minutes, then the English translation would last 30 seconds.

Very interesting tour (45 minutes) providing primarily the origins of the quarrying in the area however there was also some information about the war time and allies contributions. Recommend combining with Le Beffroi d’Arras and Carriere Wellington for €12

Worth a visit but must check available times as it is only guided tours, good history of the tunnels and how they were used from the 14th century to the modern day.

We enjoyed the hour long tour and learned alot about the Arras area. It was interesting to explore the underground. Tour lasts 1 hour and starts at the tourist office. Would have given it a higher rating if the tour price was cut in half. Must be able to walk on narrow stairs.
