Wat je gaat doen

Let's travel back in time to the year 1789, when France put an end to a Monarchy that had ruled 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?

Through pictures of France then and now on a slide show, we'll walk in the footsteps of the key figures such as Voltaire, Lafayette, Robespierre, Dr. Guillotin and more. We will discuss the turning points leading up to the Revolution and ultimately the demise of Louis XVI & Marie-Antoinette.

You will see on a map of Paris where each event took place so you can visit them on your next trip :-) 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!

This experience is adapted for anyone who has no or little knowledge of the revolution, as well as those familiar with it and wish to explore it further. All questions are welcome :)

Hi, I’m Thierry!

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 time travel with me on my Historic Walks and Online Experiences on the Fathers of the American Revolution in Paris, the French Revolution, Napoleon, the Top 10 Jewels Landmarks of Paris and the stunning Art Nouveau Architecture!

Thierry is a superb guide and storyteller. He brought the French Revolution to life with his engaging delivery and sense of humor. It was an evening well spent! We look forward to continuing Part 2 of the French Revolution journey with Thierry!

I highly recommend Thierry's French Revolution presentation. I learned a lot and it's definitely a better view of history than I ever got from school. Thierry knew a lot of really interesting details and presented it in an excellent way. It was really fun to do this with the group and with some family in another state since we can't travel right now. I hope that when we can get a vaccine and travel again to do a walking tour with Thierry in the future! Thierry is very kind and extremely funny, we all had a great time.

This was an amazing experience! It was our first virtual experience through Airbnb and it couldn’t have been any better! From start to finish, Thierry was very attentive, allowed time for questions, and shared interesting details of history not taught in school. The pace of information was perfect, with plenty of jokes, while being detailed enough to please history buffs. The time went by quickly and was over too soon. If you love learning about history, this is a perfect experience!

Fantastic journey through the history of the French Revolution from the seeds that started it up to Napoleon. I will hopefully be attending a Part 2 session in the future!

Great experience. We learnt a lot about the French Revolution. We will surely see Paris in a different way next time we are there as we will look out for the sites featured in Thierry's explanations.
