Mit fogunk csinálni?

Get Ready to join me on a trip through some of the darkest years of French history but also some of the stories of the acts of the most incredible bravery and human spirit and defiance. Meet these people , these amateur agents and resistors, writing in the beginning their single page pamphlets using toy children's printing kits the French writers, teachers and humble manual workers who became the first heroes of the resistance and also meet their adversaries, the ruthless Nazi secret police, hated even by their own supposed kamardes Worst of all we'l See the operating places of the 'french gestapo' the Carlingue, recruited as traitors from among their own people. But we' also see what life was like for the average French Parisian, usually a woman standing in a ration que, and also the average german soldier or haricot vert as they were called, usually a middle aged auxiliary considered not fit enough for front line duty. We'll see how life insidiously changed from Oct40 through to July 42 for french Jews and the reasons why the French Shoah had its own particular pattern. Finally we 'follow the 2nd armored division on its journey of liberation through Paris in August 1944
Other things to note
Each tour will last approx 2.5 hrs to 2.75hrs but no longer. You will be immersed in the story and also have to be prepared to participate. Bring some water. We'll grab a cafe or Tea inc in price

Hi , I'm Chris , originally from the UK but I've called Paris my home for the last 13 years. I'm a history fanatic who has travelled widely around Europe to the sites of many famous battles of WW2 and the history of the rise of Nazism. From Normandy, to Bastogne, to Falaise, to Nuremberg, Munich, Berlin you get the idea! Well being based here in Paris iv'e accumulated a wealth of knowledge and a library to match about the dark years of the German occupation and French history of this era. Iv'e created walking tours that will be unique in their depth of detail and interaction for you

Hol leszünk?

For all the tours a valid day metro pass or carnet of metro tickets will be useful , but you will definitely need to use the metro several times if we are to cover the bigger story during which me i will inform you of the meaning behind the names of many of the stations! During the general tour we may time permitting stop off for a quick drink in one of the cafes used by the resistance to hide allied agents and airmen

Chris is by far the most knowledgeable person about WWII, I've ever met. He's really nice, friendly and has a great sense of humour. He makes the whole experience really enjoyable. I simply felt like I was travelling through time in this beautiful city! I'll definitely recommend it to anyone who's interested in the city of Paris and history in general. I will no doubt want to do it again with friends when I'm next in Paris.

This walking tour was exceptional and brought Paris to life in an alternative way. Chris is deeply knowledgeable on this subject and clearly passionate about history. His use of materials and historic images during the tour helps transport the experience of modern Paris back to the time of the occupation and we were left with a deep and lasting impression of the fear, contradictions, compromises and betrayals that both occupied and occupiers lived through and of the marks this experience has left indelibly on this beautiful city. Anyone with an interest in history should do this tour and for those interested in WW2 it is a must!

Crispy was knowledgeable and the tour was very interesting! He also gave interesting tidbits about other aspects of French history - for example, the difference between the architecture hausmanienne and Old Paris....

Chris brings the history alive with his stories and charm. it was like strolling around inside the history channel...he told me stories and pointed out things I walked by several times and didn't realize it may not have survived that time! It's like a parallel view of the city. The time went by so quickly, I learned so much I want to share. Chris has so much passion, i hope to bring my husband next time we are here!

Very bad experience: bad organization and not serious at all : 1) He cancelled my first booking one day before because i was his only client.. 2) in my second booking 3 weeks later i was also his only client he told me that he will do the tour but suggested me an itinary and a different meeting point, i answered him with some questions and reservs about the suggested meeting point one day before, but he hadn't confirmed the meeting point and neither answered to my msgs even 2 hours before the tour! He sent me a msg of ''sorry''  with some justifications after the begining of the tour, it was too late! I lost 2 half days booked for nothing besides time calling airbnb assistance, stress and deception..

All in all a good tour! Chris is knowledgeable and certainly is passionate about his topics. I learned plenty and discovered new places in Paris. The topic is huge, and one of the things I enjoyed was how Chris would plant a seed, continue the tour, and pick up again on a topic previously covered. It tied several things together. I have given Chris feedback that I would prefer less talking while walking in highly trafficated streets as it was at times difficult to hear and pay attention. However, Chris wants to give value for money, and certainly did his best to fill our time with as much as possible! He even walked us to meet other friends after the tour, and continued giving us a tour (even after the tour was formally over).
