We enjoyed several tours while in Paris, but this one was a great disappointment. First, the name of the tour is entirely misleading. The tour was not about ghosts. Indeed, the guide, Tobias, said it right up front, “There are no ghosts on this tour.” Rather, he framed it as a “Night tour.” Indeed, in that it took place at night, that was honest. While Tobias is a nice gentleman and likely meant well, no one should start booking him for any comedy club appearances. His delivery was flat. Some people just can’t tell a good story and Tobias is one of them. If he plans to stay in this business, he really needs to up his game. Indeed, the tour became so tedious and boring, we finally just left about 20 minutes shy of two hours. We’ve travelled a good bit in our days and have always enjoyed good “Ghost tours.”
Places and route were very nice. Tour guide was very nice. Concern was not the walking, but all the standing while he talked. He easily could have found areas on public benches to allow people to sit and listen. Bathroom stops were not available which was a concern for a couple of the attendees. We were expecting a Ghost and Mystery theme which really wasnt the focus it was more a walking history tour. Would suggest he’s more attentive to his crowd and sometimes allow them to sulky and listen. Offer a stop to get a beverage and s bathroom break.
This tour was pretty good. Weve taken ghost tours in other cities because my teenagers enjoy them. They are a great way to expose teens to history through an interesting perspective. The three hours went quickly and I would recommend. Our guide was not as good of a story teller as we have had on other tours. That being said, he seemed to have a bit of a cold and still managed to give an admirable tour. In summary, if you have teens this is a recommended tour and great way to walk the city. Whether this tour is good or instead great probably is based on the tour guide. Our tour guide was good and we enjoyed the tour.
We very much enjoyed this walking tour! By night, we wound through the streets near La Conciergerie, Notre Dame, Saint Eustace, Tour de Saint Jacques and Sainte Chappelle. Our guide, Agat, was very lively and engaging. She wove the tales of the dark side of Paris very entertaining and memorable for our two teens - NOT easy to do! The history lessons of the French monarchies and the French Revolution were beautifully told. An what could be better than seeing Paris by night!
