Hi there! Thank you for your attention. My name is Leo (Eleonore), I'm in my 40s, and I am born and raised near Versailles. I've been a tour guide for 6 years for several companies, and I love to share my passion for Paris with worldwide visitors. I started with the catacombs, as it is my passion for 13 years. Now, I'm doing multiple tours and I like to study and create new ones to always improve my work. I look forward to meeting you and revealing the most stunning anecdotes that Paris has to offer.

About the Tour

 
Paris has a dark side with multiple stunning stories to share which is rarely highlighted during guided tours although this interesting topic gives a different point of view on the capital and a good way to philosophy about human kindness...

The meeting point is the equestrian statue of Henry IV, the Huguenot king who ended the wars of religion before his tragic death.

The amazing ghost story related to the former Tuileries palace will be revealed to you. This ghost was seen by some of the most famous monarchs and emperors of France... and maybe by you too soon!

Follow your guide to the nearby parish church of the Louvre, which is related to a horrible massacre perpetrated in 1572. Hear what happened there and how come such a slaughter was possible.

Discover Les Halles quarter, where the cemetery of the Saints-Innocents was established until its closure for sanitary reasons, which lead to the creation of the famous catacombs. Listen to the stunning tradition of the anchoresses, ladies voluntarily immured in a cell of stone inside cemeteries...
 
The last stop will take place at Hôtel de Ville, former place of public executions, where the culprit who killed king Henry IV suffered the most horrible death penalty ever...

Will you dare to join this tour? We bet you will! 

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: I will be at the feet of king Henry IV's equestrian statue, in the middle of the bridge "Pont Neuf". I will wear a panel saying "Crimes and legends tour" and a name tag with my name: Leo.
