Your Paris Local Guide

Why you'll love our Dark Paris Walking Tour

Best Night Tour of Paris

Meet your Paris local guide by Café Odette in the Latin Quarter, near the oldest tree of Paris. Get to know the legends about the mysterious origins of Paris. These stories are deeply connected to local faith, as only clerics were able to read and write back in the Middle Ages. From Saint Denis to Sainte Genevieve, religion and politics are the core of Paris ancient history.

The Night is Dark and full of Terrors

There is a part of truth in every legend. Your local expert guide will unveil clear facts from myths, whether it’s about the alchemist from the Harry Potter‘s series, Nicolas Flamel or the Parisian butcher who inspired the gore musical Sweeney Todd

Walk on the dark side of the City of Lights!

Paris historical centre has so much more to offer than beautiful architecture and ideal spots for selfies lovers. On the Left bank, by Les Halles or on the Cité Island, the most dreadful and secret stories include rat infections, time travels, public executions, ghosts, slaughters and even dark cults that will make you shudder and look back over your shoulder.

Churches, private clubs, forbidden sites, cabarets, back alleys, cemeteries and sordid shops will be part of this unique experience. Will you dare joining us tonight?​​
