Rain or shine walking is the only way to see the beautiful urban core, very historic and varied, many churches but much more to appeal to many visitors. The city's info office is a good place to start, perhaps meet a guide there. In the city's prominent town hall there are beautifully painted public rooms to visit with a guide... More

Elyse put together an informative and entertaining custom tour for us covering the ancient Romans that settled Toulouse. She also covered medieval life and the various architectural styles seen in the city. Elyse had no problems answering the many questions that popped up a long the way. Since we were there for work during the week, a private tour was... More

We had an excellent guided walking tour this afternoon with Elysce who gave us an insight into the history of Toulouse and opened our eyes to the many amazing archeological and architectural sites. She is enthusiastic, very well informed and very accessible so that it is so easy to enjoy it all.

We have have been going on Elyse’s walks for more than five years now and we can honestly say that we have enjoyed every single one of them and have learned so much about Toulouse, its history and architecture. The subjects are wide-ranging, from the Inquisition to the Resistance, from the role of women in art to the Retirada. The... More

I have been on many guided tours with Elyse. She can guide you through Toulouse from the pre Gallo-Roman times through the present. Not only art, but architecture and history as well. On her tours, she tells the story of Toulouse by pointing out what is still present, provides details of what was originally there and how the changes came... More

I have done a couple of walking tours earlier with Elyse and as always she makes the tour an amazing experience. She makes even the most ordinary things come alive. Her talks include history, unusual facts, humor, art, architecture etc. which keeps the listener enthralled. She explains every thing at the granular detail.

I've been in Toulouse all winter and have been able to take 3 walking tours with Elyse. I can't imagine a better way to get to know a city. It's incredible what you can learn that isn't in the guide books. I had no idea that the Inquisition started here in Toulouse, France - way before it went to Spain.... More

If you need some help in putting together a great trip to Toulouse, look no further than Elyse. Before i went on a visit with her, I checked out many websites about Toulouse and the surrounding area. Finally, I decided to join for a 2 hour visit with Elyse in Toulouse. The walk with Elyse was amazing. We visited 2... More

I went to Moissac (a commune in Tarn-et-Garonne) with Elyse in March. This is not my first time doing a guided visit with her. She organizes these amazing 2 hour walks in Toulouse (where i live) every month and i have been on many of them now. Because of her, I am always falling back in love with Toulouse. Elyse... More

Went on a tour with Elyse -- she is so knowledgeable and makes it feel more like being with a friend who is showing you around than being on a "tour". I enjoyed my time in France and without her expertise, sophistication, sense of humor and general fabuoulousness (is that a word?) it would not have been half the trip... More
