Well researched tour giving us an insight into the history of Toulouse. The cup of tea and homemade cakes were great half way round. Penny is passionate about Toulouse, which comes across in the tour.

What a great morning stroll through the lovely historic village of Toulouse. Penny brings medieval Toulouse to the present blending culture, history and architecture while keeping you engaged all the way. I thoroughly enjoyed the walkabout. It greatly exceeded my expectations. The history of Toulouse is fascinating and Penny brings it to life. Its like you have a proud big... More

A brilliant investment of 2 hrs leisure time in Toulouse. Penny is so enthusiastic and welcoming and makes you feel at home and immediately relaxed. The tour is very informative on so many levels, and her guided tour is conveyed with ease and humour that you never feel that you are drowning in dates and details. Her half time "... More

We just had a few days in Toulouse and we started it with this excellent tour. Penny herself was so energetic and enthusiastic we couldn't help but enjoy ourselves. We were just a small family group of 2 adults and 4 children, and Penny kept us all engaged, taking time to talk to us individually as well as in a... More

Many thanks for taking the time to post your review. I'm delighted that your family group enjoyed the walking tour and discovered lots of Toulouse's secrets. Whilst I can't control the weather, I try not to let it impact clients' Toulouse Walking Tour experience & so am pleased the tea break was appreciated! Best wishes, Penny More

We've all done it-go on a city break and wander aimlessly around staring at impressive architecture and buildings without knowing what they actually are. After a 2hr walking tour with Penny you cannot make that mistake in Toulouse. It's a great way to start a stay in the city both in terms of the historic background (which is a perfect... More

Penny is great. She provides a really engaging and interesting tour. Charming and friendly. I spent two very enjoyable hours and came away knowing lots more about Toulouse than when I started.

A friend had told us about a walking tour of Toulouse, but little did we know what fun we were in for. Penny is a natural born teacher: organized, articulate, personable, and passionate about her subject. Her clear depictions of historic and political events, supported by visuals in a neat little book she'd created, brought to life the past centuries... More
