Ghosts, Mysteries and Legends Night Walking Tour of Paris

For many, Paris by night is a place of romance and moonlit walks along the Seine. For others, it’s a place of mystery and the ghosts of the past that haunt city streets. This walking tour of Paris’ ghosts, mysteries and legends takes you on a journey through the hidden Paris – when the City of Light is finally dark. As you visit tucked-away streets off the beaten path, you’ll hear intriguing ghost stories and legends that will bring a chill to the night's air, as well as little-known facts about Paris and its history.
  • Go on an adventurous tour of Paris after dark
  • See many of the city’s top sights, including Hotel de Ville and the Seine

What to Expect
This evening tour of Paris begins after the sun sets. Meet your guide at a convenient location in the center of the city, and set off on your nighttime adventure. Over several hours, you see many of the city’s well-known landmarks, alongside the quirky and surprising corners that many other tour groups miss.

I don't know but would check with viator who we booked through. Their booking system goes into next year so dates will show. We went a couple of weeks ago and the walk was on only two nights but may be more in the winter
