They say that Paris is the city of light. That may be very true today, but the light was introduced to Paris quite late and in order to prevent its rebellious spirit from taking action. Before it all happened, the streets of Paris were shady and certainly not a place you would want to be alone after dark. Until today, in the bright and wide Parisian boulevards lurk old mysteries and dark secrets that are reluctant to come to the surface. Their world, a world of musty streets and crumbling hovels, has disappeared from the face of the earth, but it lives on in stories and tales. And those are the ones we want to evoke during this walk. Ghosts of the past will once again walk with us along the seemingly peaceful streets of the city.
Are you ready to discover the dark, medieval face of Paris? Our walk will have two main themes. We will dive deep into the sphere of esoteric, magic and occult and tell you tales and legends too creepy and bloody to include them on the main free tour. You will learn stories of alchemists, mysterious characters associated with Paris like the man in the iron mask and the Templars, catacombs, the secrets of Notre Dame, murders, tortures, and executions.
Join us and dare to step into the dark side of Paris, allegedly the city of lights.

My first Holliday alone, and I choose Paris because it is a one of the most beautiful city in Europe and I never visit before.
Eva was the best guide you could have! Her spirit, humour, historical knowledge and incredible passion for the matter are the heart and soul of this tour, truly making it a special experience. If you’re doing one thing in Paris, go on this tour with Eva – careful, she might make you fall in love with the city and its mysteries!
Eva was one of the best tour guides I have ever met. She is so passionate about the content, and everything was so interesting to learn about. We were able to experience another perspective of Paris, and since we had taken the Historic tour before, it was nice to connect both tours and its content. Thank you for a great tour, Eva!
Our first time in Paris, so we decided to do a walking tour to learn more about the area. We were so lucky to have Eva as our guide, who was very passionate and funny! She had so much knowledge about the history and legends of Paris. Thank you for a great tour Eva!!
Tour guide was living in this district and told us not only about history, but also about how it is to live there right now as an artist. He was fluent in English and was talking loud enough so everyone can hear him.
