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!

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!
