Know More about this tour

Today, Paris is the City of Lights, the home of fashion and the center of art and culture in France. But it wasn't always that way. Paris has a long, tragic history of murder and execution, of rampant disease among the lower classes and of bitter wars fought against a corrupt monarchy.

This nighttime walking tour of Paris ghosts, mysteries and legends takes place under a cloak of darkness, winding down alleyways and cutting through the hushed silence of the night. You will go to the sites of some of Paris' darkGare de l|est hours like the Place de la Vert Gallant, St Germain de Auxerrois (where some 30,000 were killed in the St Bartholomew's Day massacre in 1572) and the Palais du Justice (where those found guilty by the court were routinely tortured and executed before live audiences).

You will travel through areas wracked by the plague, the French Revolution, the Paris Commune, and Nazi rule. You will learn about the characters that molded the city, from Napoleon and Marie Antoinette to Henry IV and the serial killers that once stalked these very streets.

The Ghosts, Mysteries and Legends Night Walking Tour of Paris offers a rare opportunity to glimpse a side of Paris you won't see advertised on postcards. It's a chance to learn a little more about the City of Lights and those who loved, hated, died and were killed there.

    My partner and I enjoyed the ghost tour. Vic was an exceptionally your guide, her passion for her city, it's history and people was enthralling. I loved visiting the Louvre grounds at night - beautiful.

    We booked this having done ghost walks in most of the cities we have stayed in, the tour is worth doing our guide Vic was very pleasant and knowledgeable although the walk covers more history than ghosts but worth doing

    I would recommend this tour to everyone! Our guide was wonderful she was very knowledgeable and certainly made the tour worth it. I loved learning the dark history behind some major tourist attractions of Paris. My husband is very much into history and he enjoyed this as well. Looking for something to do in Paris at night get on this tour!

    This was one of my favorite things that we did during our short visit to Paris! I am so glad that we did it on our first night - the stories gave us extra information when we visited the rest of the city during the following days! The stories are more historical rather than "ghost stories" and our guide (Victoria?) was an excellent story-teller - sometimes as if she was personally there! There were stories of drama, murder, humor and suspense and I walked away wanting to know more about the history of Paris.

    We embarked on this tour after 3 fulls days of walking, so it was very tiring - there were a lot of breaks during the 2-hour tour, but it is still a lot of walking. I felt very safe, even when walking in less crowded areas. Although the tour was in English, we were given headsets to hear our guide in more crowded areas as well, which was great!

    Loved our walking tour. Got to see how beautiful Paris was at night in the safety of a group. Hoped the stories would be scary but still very entertaining and kind of historical. Would definitely recommend. Loved our guide Alejandro. He added to the enjoyment to the stories with his enthusiasm.

    Karen did an outstanding job. It was a lot of fun, and a great learning evening. Emphasis on macabre history more so than ghosts

  • 02-Aug-2019

    Ghost tour was very informative. Not scary. I highly recommended it if you want to get to know the true history of Paris

    I cannot remember the name of the girl who took us for this tour but she was friendly and engaging. The tour was interesting and entertaining. My adult daughter was with us and she loved it. I would recommend it.

    It was a cold and windy night, not what we expected in Mid June but that didn't deter our guide Vic from taking us on wonderful and insightful tour of the darker side of Paris history.
