Best First Night Experience!

This was one of my favorite things that we did during our short visit to Paris! I am so glad that we did it on our first night - the stories gave us extra information when we visited the rest of the city during the following days! The stories are more historical rather than "ghost stories" and our guide (Victoria?) was an excellent story-teller - sometimes as if she was personally there! There were stories of drama, murder, humor and suspense and I walked away wanting to know more about the history of Paris. We embarked on this tour after 3 fulls days of walking, so it was very tiring - there were a lot of breaks during the 2-hour tour, but it is still a lot of walking. I felt very safe, even when walking in less crowded areas. Although the tour was in English, we were given headsets to hear our guide in more crowded areas as well, which was great!

Loved our walking tour. Got to see how beautiful Paris was at night in the safety of a group. Hoped the stories would be scary but still very entertaining and kind of historical. Would definitely recommend. Loved our guide Alejandro. He added to the enjoyment to the stories with his enthusiasm.
