FAQs

How much walking is there?

Walking around the cemetery at a moderate pace will take you roughly 2 miles. If mobility is an issue, you can also book a private tour.

Is this tour family-friendly?

This walking tour ranges from mildly raunchy (PG-13) to hot. Your guide adapts the tone according to the group, but we always go through the content professionally. We suggest arranging a private tour if you wish to take children on this excursion. Your tour guide will gladly share our PG-rated “Love and Death in Père Lachaise” version of the tour with you. This version focuses on lost loves, undying affection, and lots of French romance over the centuries. Innuendos for adults-only are optional.

What is the refund policy?

We are aware that plans might change. You may easily change your tour up to 24 hours before departure. We provide a 100% refund up to 24 hours before the start of your tour. 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?

Prepare to arrive 15 minutes early. The trip begins immediately, and if you come late, you may not be able to catch up.

What if it rains?

Our tours go on rain or shine, so please check the weather forecast before you go. If we have to cancel due to severe weather conditions, we will give you the option to reschedule or get a full refund.

Are gratuities included?

Tips are always appreciated but never expected. They’re a great way to tell your guide they did an awesome job and show your appreciation.
