    This was a fun tour! Simon our guide was excellent (watch out for the great impersonation of the French) and extremely personable.

Sebastien was early in meeting us on Monday night… was great having a small group as Sebastien was able to keep tour very intimate including offering up recommendations to restaurants and other local sites. While we have taken other Ghost / Dark Story Tours of Paris, Sebastien introduced new stories that we had not heard before…. Highly recommended!!!

Simon was an amazing tour guide, he keeps the stories factual, fun, and interesting, I definitely recommend this tour if you have the time as it has been the best tour I’ve been to in Paris.

The tour was very interesting and entertaining. Our guide Simon did a great job! We would highly recommend this tour.

Hannah was such an amazing guide. We loved to listen to her and the stories were really interesting!
