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.

    We had a terrible experience. First, the guide did not have listening devices and also had a quiet voice. We could barely hear her, and most of our group gave up trying to listen. Then, she rushed us from location to location at a brisk pace, sometimes not even waiting for everyone to cross the street. The tour was advertised as 2 hours, and we finished with 40 minutes left. She bolted immediately afterwards, which at least saved us from having to give her a tip. Since our tour was on New Year's Eve, we think that she had a party she wanted to go to, and so gave the tour at an extra fast pace. We were disappointed with this experience, because we love this kind of historical background, but the lack of listening devices combined with the obvious desire of the guide to be finished with the tour resulted in a terrible experience.

    Unable to hear the tour guide, so we left the tour within the first 40 minutes. The tour lady needed a microphone to project her voice

    It was fine. I can’t say that it was that interesting, but it was definitely reasonably priced. The tour guide was nice, but she didn’t seem that familiar with Paris.

    I did enjoy the stories but there was only 1 ghost story. The rest were murder related. It was interesting

  • 02-Jan-2023

    This tour is badly advertised. There is nothing scary, ghostly or mysterious about it. The guide started the tour with a statement saying the tour was not really focused on ghost, just interesting and strange facts about Paris. The facts weren't even that interesting. A direct qoute from the guide was 'someone died in the river!' I requested a refund for the tour due to it being badly advertised and Viator said they would not refund the money. Please do NOT waste your time or money on this tour.

    Don’t normally leave reviews however this tour was brilliant so much information and our tour guide Ami was superb he is very knowledgeable and very funny with his quick witted jokes however he was always focused on feeding us the history of France and it is mainly because of his that I write this as he was simply amazing, excellent price and overall fantastic tour would highly recommend, Ami if you get a chance to read this I want to thank you again for a sublime experience and best of luck with the future, lots of love from the UK couple

    A great tour around the heart of Paris. Some really interesting history presented in a fun and informative way. Lots of murder, assassination and ghosts.

    Ami was great, articulated and full of funny stories. However, in the end of October the 2 hrs tour starting at 9pm was bit too late. I was with 11 years old and we needed to leave at 10 pm as it was too late for such experience for her. This should be marked as adult only or being moved to 8pm. Also, I would appreciate it more if only history was told, without ghost references.

    It was a very nice tour with a lot of crazy facts about Paris! Very historical and interesting stories about life and death in the past. Ami, the Tourguide, had a lot of fun sharing his knowledge with all of us and also made recommendations for our stay in Paris. 4 of 5 stars because it wasn’t as spooky as we expected. But still recommendable!

    We had a very nice evening with Ami who really found the perfect balance between humor, a wide range of knowledge and excitement. Thank you again, we really enjoyed the tour.
