    On tours like these, the guide makes all the difference. Leo was such an amazing guide. I really wished he had been a guide for other tours we did. He was informational and also very charismatic which made the tour so enjoyable! I would definitely recommend!
    Gore and Horror in Paris

    The guide was awesome fun and such a great storyteller! Love that the tour brought us to medieval parts of the city and that gave such great context to the stories. The stories were gory enough and accompanied by photos as well.
    Great experience

    An incridible experience, my guide was passionate about the history and since it was halloween night it made the whole tour even better!
    Truly a fantastic experience.

    Leo, was very lovely he chatted individually to everyone in the group and when he was telling us the stories of the spot he would point out if it matched with people's interest. His stories had flare and dramatics, would recommend.
    Lots of fun & interesting facts!

    Fun, entertaining, and interesting -- a great evening walking around Paris with a knowledgeable guide, who had a creepy story for each point of interest on the walk. Our guide also gave great recommendations for dinner spots after the tour. Very good experience!

    Great fun tour giving us another side to Paris. Would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking for something a bit different. Sebastian our tour guide was fantastic and kept the pace of the tour perfectly.
    Amazing guide!

    Morgan was a great guide! The stories he shared were so interesting and covered a wide variety of topics. If you’re a “true crime” fan this is a must!
    Interesting and relaxing walk

    Great Tour
    Mark_L, Oct 2022
    Really enjoyed this tour - a nice walk around Paris, with some very interesting and different stories. The tour guide Morgan did an excellent job of recounting the tales, and made the tour thoroughly enjoyable.
    Loved it!
    Rawan_K, Oct 2022
    I've been to Paris many times before and wanted to try something different this time round and this tour certainly helped me accomplish that! Very lovely tour and worth it if you are interested in crime and etc. Just one recommendation do not do it in the winter! Should be done in spring or summer so you won't be freezing cold
    You wont regret your choice!
    Karla_H, Sep 2022
    Realizing that the stories for the most part were true! The guide made history come alive! A great way to spend an evening in Paris!
    Macabre in Paris
    Bobbi_C, Sep 2022
    We had a great time wandering the streets of Paris after dark with Morgan. He was an excellent guide and story teller. Some stories were older and some were more recent. Definitely held our attention and would recommend for anyone who wants a little macabre on their Paris trip. Poor Renee.
    Good fun
    DAVID_C, Aug 2022
    We had lots of fun! A little twist on seeing some sights of Paris and the stories were interesting! Our guide was very friendly and knowledgable. We had a lovely time!
    Nice walk thru Paris 4th & 5th arr listening to macabre tales of Paris.
    Anjanette_S, Aug 2022
    My family had a great time following Leo about the 4th & 5th arr of Paris. I had been to Paris several times before & learned many new stories about the past peoples who lived in those areas. Our fav was Kobe Cannibal.
    Dark secrets will blow you away

    Great way to see Paris and Learn
    Tammy_M, Aug 2022
    Leo was great. Fun and informative. We had a beautiful walk and learned so much about Paris history. It’s not a ghost tour but a historical tour, which we loved. Highly recommend
