Very good guide, passionate about his subject, not stingy with anecdotes and details for the enjoyment of the group. We weren't spoiled by the weather, and despite the rain and cold, our guide of the day was as energetic as ever. Crimes and scurrilous tales of the old Paris, this tour plunged us into the dark Paris of the time. Super souvenir

A tour that takes over an hour and a half to visit a variety of unexpected places. The anecdotes are enlightening and allow you to discover a Paris of different eras from a little-known angle. A good experience.

A visit chosen with my daughter for its promise of thrills and original discovery of central Paris. We were not disappointed by the anecdotes and portraits of famous criminals distilled with humor and erudition by our guide (I skipped the first name - visit on 10/25 at 5:30pm). By the time the tour was over, it was evening and our imaginations were running wild. We recommend

A visit we made with 2 teenagers, who obviously looked blasé, but in the end, just like me, found the visit very interesting, and we didn't notice the hour and a half go by. Our guide Mathieu (I think??) was top-notch, apparently a history buff who transported us back in time. Go without hesitation.

A visit on an original theme that lived up to all its promises. A very interesting guide who introduced us to major court cases and to justice in Paris through history. Anecdotes and interludes along the way. The tour was justified by the guide, who was keen to create exchanges with the group and to be understood by the only child present. Thank you for a great time. I highly recommend this tour.

Written by Marie-Christine, 01-03-2020

Freezing cold is the weather on February 21! What's warmer are the stories told by our cultured, funny and unusual guide, illustrating the places we've visited. Reminders or discoveries of their history and even their near future (Quai des Orfèvres), as Julien tells us not only about crimes, but also about where and how they are judged and punished, depending on the era. We'll be glad to take this tour again... and the weather will be more conducive to cultural strolls!

Star Star Star Star Star - 1234 crime in paris?
Written by Gaelle, on 26-02-2020

very disappointed with the visit on Sunday February 25 at 5:30 pm. We had opted for a crime tour of Paris, but what we got was a tour of the history of Paris monuments, with a few anecdotes such as "where does the name chicken come from", two passages on the mad surgeon who gassed his victims, and the criminal François Ravaillac, tortured to death for his crime. I found that our guide didn't have a guiding line, he spread himself too thin for my liking and it was as if he was searching for his words "1,2,3,4". I was expecting to take a tour of the great sordid affairs and other sinister crimes, but in no case did I hear anything about brigands, the names of great criminals or the catacombs etc... In short, I was very disappointed, I didn't like it and the visit seemed like an eternity. I didn't pay for it and I'm asking for a refund.

My boyfriend and I had a great private tour (5 other people didn't show up) with a super guide who was passionate and above all fascinating! We saw the Saint Michel and Châtelet districts from a whole new angle! Loads of juicy anecdotes and gloomy tales just the way we like them! Nothing to complain about....hate to try out the other guided tours on the site! Thanks again 🙂

Passionate and fascinating guide, fantastic! My 2 teenagers loved it! However, My Urban Experience should manage the groups better. This one was mixed (French/English) and the guide had to translate each time. As a result, the tour took longer than expected, and visitors tired of the translations left before the end. A real shame. It would be better to have 2 separate groups and not mix languages.
