A totally enjoyable experience. I've lived in Toulouse for 2 years now and would strongly recommend this. Penny was excellent and the tour well balanced walking, stopping and information. Really enjoyed this and will definitely be taking my family.

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

16 mothers and toddlers on a walking tour of Toulouse. We attracted quite a few looks! The tour was great, well paced, very informative and perfectly adapted to our reduced mobility vehicles. Penny's love for her adopted city and her enthusiasm communicating it guaranteed that the tour was a great success. I can't wait to do another one!

Penny was fantastic! Incredibly knowledgeable about Toulouse and offered so much insight to a city I would have otherwise just walked aimlessly around taking photos of buildings like a classic tourist. The back stories to the town helped the city come to life and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who likes to learn a bit of light... More
