    Musee de l’Armee des Invalides
    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.

War museum tour
Sep 2019 • Couples
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.

Great tour-one of my son's favorites in Paris
Aug 2019
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!

Amazing Tour
Aug 2019
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.

Amazing tour of Les Invalides
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!
