  • Outstanding!!! Great tour, knowledgeable,

  • Private tour, just the four of us and brilliant. Les invalids and Napoleon was great and the Rodin tour topped it off.

  • This tour is a must. Selina was amazing, and the whole experience was relaxed and highly informative. Be prepared for a lot of walking.

  • Our guide Gwen Cairou did a great job of listening to the topics we wanted to cover most and going into great depth on those: Napoleon, WW1 and WW2. We spent four rich hours at Les Invalides and would welcome the chance to visit another site with Gwen. Highly recommended.
