Penny does a fabulous job of choosing interesting sites and information. We enjoyed our tour so much and came away with a real affection for Toulouse. There is so much to see and do here and so much history.

My children, aged 8 and 6, have just taken part in Penny's Parks & Planes Toulouse Explorer Challenge and I can highly recommend it! Penny has a way of making everything fun and had their full attention for two whole hours. This is the third Explorer Challenge that my eldest daughter has been on and she has loved them all....

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review. I'm thrilled that your children enjoyed the 'Parks & Planes' Toulouse Explorer Challenge and that as a parent you would 'highly recommend it'. There will be another new challenge coming out in the autumn with more adventures to stimulate those minds too! Best wishes, Penny More

We had a wonderful time with Penny today and we learnt lots of secrets of the city. Particularly the wonderful morning tea stop, when wonderful things emerge from penny's green trolley bag. We had our children with us (13, 11and 5 years) and Penny catered beautifully to both adults and children. History comes to life with this engaging and very... More

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.

Penny's walking tour is a great way to begin your stay in Toulouse. At an easy pace, she takes you to many of the prominent and interesting sights of this ancient city. 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
