About Us

CHEMINS D’HISTOIRE organises guided tours of the First World War Battlefields. Created in 2009, the company is based in Saint-Quentin, located on the Hindenburg Line. We conduct tailor made tours and tours for individuals or groups. We have also shared our experiences with official delegations and reporters.

Your guide Olivier Dirson lives in Saint-Quentin, on the Hindenburg Line. His home village of Montbrehain, was the theatre of the last battle of the Australian troops. Olivier is very passionate about the local History.

The Historial, Museum of the Great War in Péronne can attest to Olivier’s knowledge of the Great War and battlefields.

He is also an official guide and lecturer of the “Town and Countries of Art and History” of the French Ministry of Culture, and a member of the Somme Battlefields’ Partner label.


Informative day with Olivier who was a fantastic guide. Loved the interactive GPS maps that showed the trenches from WWI and also the photos dating back to that time. Quaint little cafe for lunch. Would recommend to anyone as Olivier was very adaptable for his audience…
