5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

For three plus hours we were entertained with the Revolutionary story of France. I recognized many of the areas we visited but I learned so many interesting facts. Our guide made history come alive.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2014

This was a great tour that filled-in gaps from many of the other tours we had taken. We went on this walk with our guide - Paul - late in our visit to Paris. We had already been to many of the primary Paris attractions but this tour of the streets and sites that were key during the revolution really provided perspective. Our guide had a deep knowledge of French history and all of the events and factors that led to revolution and it's aftermath. This was fascinating and well worth the time.
