Paris: Dark City Secrets Walking Tour

1. Paris: Dark City Secrets Walking Tour

Throughout your 2-hour guided tour you will discover the dark side of the center of Paris. Choose between a shared or private experience, which will begin at the former main site of the bloody and popular public executions, which were both adored and appreciated by Parisians. You will see how cruelly they used to punish convicted criminals, as well as the occasional unfortunate innocent person too. Paris is a haunted city with plenty of ghosts and phantoms. One famous French poet became the ghost that today haunts a theater, another one was injured during a fire and has since never left the Opera House. You'll learn about the "evil queen" of France, and how another spirit haunted her all the way up until her final days. Demons and devilish beings are everywhere in Paris, with the Notre-Dame Cathedral containing plenty of them on its exterior. On this facade there are so many creepy and mysterious signs and symbols, which require a thorough investigation to properly appreciate it. You will learn how a gypsy cursed a house in the Latin Quarter, causing its owner to die. This was followed by more people mysteriously dying there. You'll hear the spine-chilling story about this most famous cursed Parisian place, before your chilling tour finishes at the meeting point with the story of a vampire.

We were the only people on the tour but this made it much better. Our tour guide had extensive knowledge of Paris’s history and the stories that were told were fascinating. Aside from the Dark Secrets, our guide gave us some great restaurant and location tips for the rest of our time in Paris. A must-do guide if you’ve visiting Paris and want to hear some history. Thank you!

Hannah was incredibly knowledgeable on her subject matter and did not give into speculative stories. It was a wonderful way to walk around Paris at night and gain a darker view of the city. Highly recommend!

Our favorite part of our Paris visit! Our guide shared many unique and curious stories that we had never heard. I look forward to taking another My Precious Paris tour next time!

Our guide Simon was very pleasant, tells the stories with complete surrender and passion so that you can imagine everything vividly

Our guide Leo is charming! It was very nice ! I recommend Christel, Frank, Justine and Martin (out on October 30 at 7 p.m.)
