What you'll do

The longest running and BEST Haunted Tour of Paris is now on AirBNB Experiences! Over the course of a 1 and a half hour walking tour, we will discover the historic heart of the city with your expert, accredited guide. Paris is known as the City of Light, but we will instead focus on the dark side while exploring areas of the city rarely seen by Parisians.

There will be several ghost stories, including the famous ghosts of Notre Dame Cathedral.

Hear the story of the bizarre ghost of a famous writer who haunts a spectacular theater with his bizarre pet (hint: its not a dog or cat)

We will also visit places of true crime such as the famous Demon Barber of Paris (the real inspiration for Sweeney Todd).

In the shadows of the impressive and imposing Conciergerie, you will hear about the Reign of Terror and the imprisonment and beheading of Queen Marie Antoinette.

You will have the chance to stand on the spot where a French king was assassinated and hear the unbelievable story behind it.

You will get to stand on some of the most blood soaked ground in Paris where, for centuries, thousands of people were tortured and hear how and why they were tortured.

End the experience by visiting the spot of the infamous Cemetery of the Innocents and the birth of the Paris Catacombs.

Many other terrifying and gruesome stories await you on the famous Haunted Paris Tour!

I have always been interested in French and Parisian history, so much that I received a University degree in the subject. After moving to Paris many years ago, I completed additional schooling to become a certified national tour guide, making me an expert in my field. I spend my days giving tours all over Paris, including in the Palaces and Museums and sharing the fascinating history of Paris to people from all over the world.

Matt is an engaging storyteller with true crime and ghoulish tales and historical facts at his finger tips. Paris is beautiful after dark when this tour meets. If you like hearing about the supernatural, the ghosts that haunt the city then this is the tour for you.

My sister and I loved getting to experience a different side of the historical section of Paris. Matt is very friendly and knowledgeable not just of the darker sides of Paris, but all kinds of history of the city.

First time doing an AirBnB guided tour. First time in Paris, Matt made us feel welcome and had a great tour. Very informative. Took care to engage all the members on the tour, and walk was pleasant and only had one staircase. My wife’s favorite was the story of the human meat pies. Also the origins of the catacombs. Great time, highly recommend a must do! Thank you Matt! Angel & Mary Ann
