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

Having never visited Toulouse before I was keen to find out more about the city. I decided to book a tour and certainly wasn't disappointed.

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!

This morning 13 mums and a dad, and their young offspring enjoyed a fantastic tour of Toulouse. It was a perfect morning discovering the city, that I'm lucky enough to live in, but know very little about. Thank you Penny for sharing your knowledge and passion for Toulouse, it's history and it's buildings. I wasn't sure how we would get... More

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

A walking tour of Toulouse, great start to a stag weekend, wasn't the first thing that popped into my head. However being greeted by a friendly and animated fellow Brit with the promise of tea and cakes half way definately peeked my interest. What followed was an approximately 4km walk around the many sights of Toulouse accompanied by a thorough... More

Penny's tour was the first item on the agenda for a stag weekend in Toulouse - quite a sedate start but all concerned thoroughly enjoyed the tour. To a number of Brits Toulouse is only known for rugby, sausages and Airbus however Penny's incite into the city's fascinating history opened our mines to a truly fascinating place.

It is obvious that Penny knows her stuff and loves Toulouse, with as much if not more passion than any local. We will be returning soon for a long weekend, to further explore.
