Tour description

In this different tour through the historic center of Paris , we will learn emblematic legends of the city , as well as its hidden and darker history. Always accompanied by a note of humor. Because not everything can be blood and heads rolling.

We will start on the Ile de la Cité , and next to the Notre-Dame Cathedral we will tell the legendary origin of the Parisian gargoyles and the story of its most mysterious door.
Next, we'll get more bloody and talk about a somewhat macabre undertaking .
We will review the history of the Catacombs and a famous Alchemist , accompanied by the spectacular view of the Gothic tower of Saint-Jacques.
All this to end in front of the also impressive Hôtel de Ville , in whose square public executions were carried out for centuries. Including of course, the first use of the National Knife .

I wait for you in this different tour of Paris.

David se tomó el tiempo para mostrar Paris de una manera didáctica con muchas anécdotas que hicieron que los lugares cobrarán vida. Se tomó el tiempo para responder cada pregunta aunque ya la respondió a otro pasajero minutos antes. No había pregunta muy difícil o demasiado sencilla- las respondió con la misma calidad.

Excelente tour. David fue muy ameno y cercano en su relato, y a la vez demostró su gran conocimiento de la ciudad. Muy buena combinación de entretención y cultura. 100% recomendado.

Me pareció excelente y entretenido, por lo observado y por el gran aporte de datos históricos, anecdóticos y pintorescos, que amenizaban el recorrido.
