Det skal I lave

In 1789, France put an end to a Monarchy that had ruled the kingdom for centuries… Did Marie-Antoinette really say « let them eat cake » and was Louis XVI a bad King ? Why did the National Assembly that had just proclaimed the « Rights of Men » turn into a dictatorial government ?

Travel back in time and walk on the footsteps of the key figures of the time: Voltaire, Lafayette, Robespierre, Dr Guillotin and more. You will see exactly where the King, the Queen and many other high profile figures were executed with the Guillotine… You will understand why France went to war with the rest of Europe and relive the decisive events leading a young general to power: Napoleon!

PLEASE NOTE The French Revolution is in ENGLISH. French is available upon request.

DETAILS: Adapted to all ages. Approx. 2hrs & 3,5Km/2Mi. Walk runs rain or shine.

MY OTHER WALKS & ONLINE EXPERIENCES: Fathers of the American Revolution ; Napoleon ; Paris TOP 10 Jewels ; Art Nouveau Architecture.

Hi, I’m Thierry Collegia!

History has been my passion since I was a teenager. My purpose is to make history entertaining and to show the human side of historical figures. I love sharing the little anecdotes behind the major events and I enjoy revealing the secrets of Paris hidden in the major landmarks or in the nooks and crannies.

Having spent 16 years in the US and the UK gives me the hindsight to approach historical events with different perspectives, along with a knowledge drawn from a lifetime of attending history talks, courses, exhibitions, tours and reading hundreds of books.

So come time travel with me on my Historic Walks (or Online Experiences) on the Fathers of the American Revolution in Paris; La Fayette; the French Revolution, Napoleon, the Kings & Queens; and the stunning Art Nouveau Architecture!

Absolutely loved this! I’m not a big history person, but my boyfriend is—so thought it would be a great way to explore the city and he’d enjoy the tour. But, I ended up LOVING IT. Thierry does a great job of not just telling the story but animating it and bringing it to life. 10/10 would recommend!

Absolutely loved the tour, Thierry was as best a guide as I’ve ever had. Very knowledgeable and made the tour a lot of fun throughout.

Thierry was a great and engaging host. I booked this tour last minute and was really glad I did. The in depth breakdown of the first revolution was fascinating and Thierry was able to break down a very complex time in French history to be understandable for those without prior knowledge of the political history. Thierry’s passion for history and the subject is wonderful. Despite the cold weather, his storytelling and positivity kept me engaged throughout. I didn’t want the tour to end! If you love history I would definitely recommend this tour. If the revolutions interest you I would definitely suggest booking another tour to ‘find out what happens next’ with Napoleon and the subsequent revolutions. Thierry is very knowledgable and answered my many questions. The use of visual aids/pictures adds a lovely personalised touch to the tour.

Before our trip, we had some understanding of the revolution but Thierry told us a clear and engaging story that helped piece all those bits together - with just the right amount of humour! He took a complex and fast-moving event and made it into an easy to understand story, without losing that complexity. He answered all questions clearly and fully. The pacing of the walking tour was just right, and he was considerate of people's needs, including time for a little break to get coffee on a cold day, to take pictures, and answering questions. We really enjoyed this walking tour and will hopefully get back to Paris for another tour with Thierry!

I booked this experience last minute and I am so glad I did. Thierry is a super story teller, there’s something very theatrical about the way he tells his story. It is never boring! I learned a lot from him today, super highly recommended!

It was one of the best walking tours I have joined. Thierry was a great guide though it was a historical tour and lots of information he made it very easy to follow the whole story.
