French Revolution Walking Guided Tour in Paris

Duration 3 hour(s)
Highlights
  • Coffee break in the charming Saint-Germain-des-Prés quarter
  • Join an entertaining exploration of French history
  • Be transported by your imagination through the tales of our professional storyteller
  • Fascinating stories and hidden details that most visitors miss

Forget everything you know about the French Revolution. We’re taking you far beyond just names and dates by leading you on an extraordinary journey through alleyways, churches, cafes. This is history you can see and touch, imagining yourself there in the thick of history’s most turbulent and terrifying upheaval while you walk through the neighborhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés with our guide-storyteller.

Come across a cast of bloodthirsty characters like Robespierre, Danton and Marat, as you explore the historic location where they plotted and planned against the tyrannical king. Your guide will demystify the social and political complexities of the time, distilling them into an engaging and adventurous timeline that even non-history lovers will adore. The storming of the Bastille is just the beginning, trust us!

You’ll learn about the extravagances of Louis XVI and his queen Marie Antoinette. You’ll then follow their downward spiral from their imprisonment in Paris, to their attempted secret escape, to their fateful moments beneath the glistening blade of the guillotine. Speaking of the “National Razor”,, we’ll show you where it was invented and explain just how effective a killing machine it was—“Heads flying like roof shingles in a hurricane,” according to one witness!

After a complimentary café break to take a breather, you’ll continue along an itinerary packed with surprising objects that lurk in the shadows of the picturesque Saint-Germain-des-Prés district.

Guide was good and knowledgeable but we would have liked to see more monuments. Place de Concorde and corcergerie are far to walk but if they could be tied in better or other similar monuments. Maybe the guide could bring a map and pictures to show how everything in the revolution ties together it would be helpful.
