About
Without France, the American Revolution would not have succeeded. Without America, the French Revolution might not have happened. America & France are two nations united by a shared history, a history that is older than America itself. Our Founding Fathers sought the help of France to create our nation, and this tour will take you to the places where these great patriots lived & worked. Along the way we will discuss the contribution that France made in ensuring American victory against the British – and the contribution that America made in disseminating Revolutionary ideals among the French elite. The Franco-American friendship has now lasted 230 years, and throughout that time Americans have continued coming to Paris.

America's Founding Fathers - Follow their Footsteps in Paris
Nov 2019
America’s Founding Fathers in Paris is a definite “must do” on your next trip to Paris. Our tour guide, Ellen, was fantastic! Ellen is friendly, knowledgeable, and loves to share her love of American and French history.

The information on the tour was presented in a way that was fun, easy to understand, and easy to remember. Ellen even tailored the tour’s content so that the pace was appropriate for me and my two children, ages 8 and 12. We learned so many interesting facts about the lives of four of America’s founding fathers who lived in France for short periods during America’s formative years. We also visited historic sites and learned about some of the shared history between America and France.

I definitely plan to take other amazing tours with Ellen in the future.
