Guided Tours of WW2 Paris

Since 2015 I have led guided tours on Paris during the Nazi Occupation for Context Travel, a specialist tour company. I take a small group (a maximum of six people) to visit some of the more interesting and lesser known sights and look at how the city changed during the Occupation, the roles of the German and Vichy governments, questions of collaboration and resistance, the Liberation and France's relationship to its past.

Unlike many whistlestop tours of Paris, this is an opportunity to explore and discuss the Occupation in depth, and takes around 3-4 hours. The tour is featured on Mikkel Paige's blog: The One Tour That Altered My Perspective of Paris

Custom Guided Tours and Media Research

I also advise on Paris locations for TV/film productions, and offer custom tours on SOE's agents in Paris, women in the French resistance and other aspects of Paris during the Occupation. If you are researching Paris locations or have a specific subject interest for a custom tour, please contact me at
