The walking tour is a great way to start your stay in Toulouse. You are guided through the town visiting places that you may well have missed without Penny.

Her lively and entertaining commentary contextualizes the sights by drawing upon the history, architecture and culture of the city from the time of Roman settlement. Just as importantly,... More

My wife wanted to join Penny's 'Key Sights' Tour around Toulouse. I preferred to do more city exploring. However, rather than be a party pooper, I decided to join her. I have walked the route before but obviously had my eyes shut ! We met outside the Tourist Office in the Place Capitole on a beautiful June morning along with... More

Even if you are familiar with Toulouse, Penny brings to life the history and culture of Toulouse with her fascinating knowledge. Well-paced tour, well-explained history. I plan to go on her other walking tour, Beyond the Postcard, tomorrow. The tour my husband and I went on was the Key Sights Walk, which is what I recommend, even if you know... More

Many thanks for posting your review of the walking tour. I'm so glad that you enjoyed it (and found time - can be hard when you live somewhere to find time amongst the day to day practicalities to do so). Additionally, I'm pleased that you found the pace 'leisurely' and not too demanding! Best wishes, Penny More

Great tour, taking in the key essential sights in Toulouse, Penny helped us unravel its complex and rich history along with anecdotes and personal refelctions. I have lived in Toulouse for 17 years now and even I found out little nuggets of information that I wasn't aware of...I would highly recommend the tour (and the tea and cakes!!)
