Paris: Myths and Legends



Notre Dame, Paris, France
45 mins

About the tour

Join your guide for an original tour where the myths, legends and the dark history of Paris will be told. 2000 years-old, the city has been the place of many events, many happy but sometimes pretty scary! Starting on the island of la Cité, right in the heart of the city, in front of the cathedral Notre Dame, you’ll discover some fascinating stories about the neighborhood in the course of time. Gargoyles, alchemists, but also narrow streets and gruesome stories. Discover the dark side of Paris while exploring its main island and the right bank! Please Note: Due to the content of this tour, we recommend viewer discretion is applied with regards to young children who may be watching.

Meet your local guide


It's an understatement to say Florent knows Paris. Born in this wonderful city, Florent says he confidently knows every nook and cranny. Having completed over 2000 tours, we believe him. He's a self declared history, art and archaeology buff. What he loves most is sharing the best parts (and dirty secrets) of Paris with you!

Florent has been guiding since Aug 2010

What to expect

The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Paris. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.

Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.
