We loved this walking tour around Paris! Our guide was delightful, friendly, and told very interesting stories. I would highly recommend this tour if you have never been to Paris and want to hear some of the darker stories behind such a historical city.

Walking around Paris at night was such a pleasant experience. The stories had a great mix of ancient and modern times and our guide explained all the cravings on the Notre Dame which was awesome.

We arrived in Paris and this tour was the first thing we did that evening. It really set the tone for our stay and was extremely enjoyable. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and we learned a lot. Although you do a great deal of walking, you don't even realize it. Our guide even did a great job of dispatching of a pan handler that was trying to bother the group.

My son and I had a great time on this tour! Our tour guide was fabulous and funny. Was a perfect night for a stroll around town and seeing everything lit up was breath-taking. I lived in Paris as a student 17 years ago and brought my 13 year old son for a quick visit and this was definitely a way to spark his interest and hopefully a love for this amazing city!

Phenomenal experience....great historical perspective....light on ghosts....but based on the Paris' past of executions...murder...deceit....there was still more than enough to talk about

Rafaella prob not spelled correctly was our guide. My husband and brought our teens with us and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Our guide was super-nice, very knowledgeable, and her English was very good. I'm not sure if each guide tweaks their own tour speech or if they all say the same thing, but we were impressed with the way our guide rounded out the evening thematically. It was a great history lesson for us . . . I highly recommend the tour to all. It's not really spooky - though there are tales of murder even ghastly ones. It's more an interesting history woven around a few central figures and the things that happened within the areas we walked. You won't regret the time on this tour.

Laura did a great job as our tour guide. We walked all over the downtown area and was entertained by all the stories. Laura was very knowledgeable and you could tell she really enjoyed her job as the guide.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2017

Our guide, Laura, was amazing! Her passion for history, great sense of humor, and warm personality truly made this tour more than a simple walking tour peppered with ghost stories. If you book this tour, I highly recommend trying to get her as your guide.
