FAQs

How much walking is there?

There’s about 2 miles of walking through the cemetery at a leisurely pace. If mobility is an issue, please arrange for a private tour.

Is this tour family-friendly?

This walking tour varies from a little racy (PG-13) to downright spicy. Your guide adjusts the tone based on the group, but we always cover the material with class. If you want to take youngsters on this tour, we recommend booking a private tour. Your guide is happy to share our PG “Love and Death in Père Lachaise” version of the tour. This version highlights lost loves, undying affection, and plenty of French romance through the ages. Adult-only innuendos optional.

What is the refund policy?

We understand plans change. You can always change your tour 24 hours or more before you tour. We offer a 100% refund up to 24 hours prior to your tour start time. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

When should I get there?

Plan to show up 15 minutes early. The tour starts promptly, and you may not be able to catch up if you arrive late.

What if it rains?

Our tours run rain or shine. If there’s extreme weather and we have to cancel, you’ll get a full refund.

Are gratuities included?

Tips aren’t expected but are always appreciated by our guides. If you think your guide did an outstanding job, a tip is a great way to show that.
