    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Begin by exploring the 19th century roots that lead to one of the bloodiest wars ever, learning about characters like Bismarck during the Franco-Prussian War. From there, your guide will piece together the chain of events, including the assassination of Franz Ferdinand, that set off World War I. Come face to face with the equipment, uniforms, weapons, and other artifacts that were used during the war’s many battles. Relive the famous Battle of the Marne while seeing one of the iconic taxis that played a crucial role. Watch original footage detailing the atrocities before finally understanding how the Treaty of Versailles ended things. You’ll even see the train car where the armistice was signed, ending the war. Afterwards, you’ll learn how the threat of Adolf Hitler came to be a reality, launching World War II. Discuss significant events like the Ligne Maginot, Dunkerque, and the Occupation of Paris while meandering among artifacts collected from the battlefields. Your guide will discuss famous men like Pétain and De Gaulle who helped guide France through this horrendous war. You will discover stories behind the battles of Normandy and the Liberation of Paris, which lead ultimately the preservation of the city that you can still enjoy today.

My wife and I booked a semi-private tour with Florent that due to the low tourist season became a private tour. We had a really great time. Florent is a passionate historian who is a good storyteller and has the ability to connect with people. He can speak French, English, and German fluently and is working on Spanish. Great and friendly tour guide!

The museum itself is large but we hit all the main attractions. I'd recommend to anyone who is interested in history

Anastasia was a wonderful and knowledgeable tour guide! We saw Napoleon's tomb and learned so much about French history. It was a great way to appreciate the rich history of this wonderful country. The collection of artifacts was amazing!! Highly recommend it.

Excellent service. Our guide Anastasia was very knowledgeable and guided us thru the museum with many interesting facts that we would have missed on a self guided tour. Napoleons tomb was really interesting and without a good guide we would have missed so many details of the interesting history.

Anastasia was very knowledgeable and her art expertise was a different insight from what other guides could have been a ken to do. We enjoyed our time with her very much.

Our tour guide was exceptional. He had tons of facts but also kept it fun (as much as you could in a war museum!). My 20 year old son said he ranked it in the top 3 tours and we did about 2 tours a day for about a week. Would recommend!

We toured Les Invalides with Julian and he was absolutely amazing! While my son has always been interested in history, he'd had very little exposure to military history. We walked through and learned about the evolution of different weapons and tactics and then learned a tremendous amount about France's role in both world wars. It was information and exposure that he never would have received in the states. Julian was patient and really kept my son engaged the entire tour.

We toured Les Invalides with our guide, Anastasia. The museum is enormous, and Anastasia's extensive knowledge of the museum was invaluable. Having a knowledgeable guide who could explain both what we were seeing, as well as the historical perspective and significance was so helpful. The time flew by. My husband is a military history buff, and was very satisfied with our experience. I felt as though we learned so much from Anastasia's comments, and definitely had a much more immersive experience. We would heartily recommend this tour, and Anastasia in particular. Well done!
