This tour was awesome. Our guide Adam was so knowledgeable about the history of Paris. This was more than just ghosts and legends but also a historical tour. If you want to learn about the dark side of Paris, tales of cannabalism, vampires and brutal royals and also the history of this old city this tour is for you. It made learning fun and exciting. I learned so many things about the french revolution, Kings, Queens and the church. Here stories of Marie Antoinette, vampires and living serial killers the likes of Texas Chainsaw.

We were not going to do this tour but I am glad we did. This tour introduces you to the other side of Paris. Every city has its dark side and this tour shows you all there is to know about Paris. Our guide told us about the French Revolution, terror, prisons, rats and murders. Plus watch out because the guillotine is mentioned as well. Have fun!
