We purchased this tour for our last night in Paris! We could have reserved a segway tour or a ghost tour from Viator, or a night cruise!!! But this looked fun and different. NO ONE SHOWED UP! We stayed at the meeting point for 45 minutes and NO ONE! We also called the company and the phone was DISCONNECTED! We... More

I thought the stories would more so talk about vampires and ghosts but it focused a lot on other types of stories, still gory but again, not what I thought.

We came to the meeting place (Statue of Charlemagne by the Notre-Dame) and nobody was there. In fact, one of the waiters at the nearby restaurant (we went inside to try and call the company) told us that this is a frequent occurrence, and tourists come in all the time asking where the tour is at. We even came back... More

My daughter and I went on the vampire and ghost tour of Paris expected to hear stories about ghosts lurking in historic sites in Paris, as we've heard in another setting. Instead we learned about beheadings, massacres and other gruesome events. It was quite informative & interesting. The tour guide was well-informed, friendly, and enthusiastic about the topic. It was... More

Despite receiving a confirmation and having paid for the tour beforehand, a group of eleven people, including my husband and I were stood up by the company. We waited for 45 minutes on a friday night, walked around the meeting point, called the number on their TripAdvisor page (no answer). We were very, very disappointed... and adding insult to injury...

Greetings, Can you tell me which date your tour was? If it was October 9th please advise, because there was construction on our meeting point and this confused the start of the tour. Sincerely, Sebastiaan More

It was really nice, the tour guide was excellent : fascinating and passionate . The stories were great, it looks like "theater in the street". It's an original way to discover Paris. Thanks to Robin, best guide tour ever !

The only reason why I gave this a 4 instead of a 5 is because I felt the price was a little steep but it was still worth it. Even more so, Im happy to support people like Charley, our guide, who is an awesome person. Halloween is my favorite holiday and it was hard being away from the States... More

We live in Paris but thought we'd do this tour to get into the Hallow'een mood and hear some spooky stories. No ghost stories and our guide's English was just not up to scratch. As we knew a bit about one of the places the gaps in the stories werevery obvious. Did not do their research well. Would not recommend.

The tour itself was surely well planned by whoever designed it. The walk through the small passages was fair enough and we got a nice view of Paris by night. Our tourguide's English however was quite bad. We are well-seasoned travellers, not native-speakers of English with a high level of tolerance... but her English was frankly "b.a.d.". She ruined many... More

Staying in Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis

Neighbourhood Profile
Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité, sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island, welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.
