My uncle who lives in France wanted me to come up for a couple of weeks with a friend for my graduation present. As being here, he gave us the whole two weeks to do what we wanted, and to enjoy Toulouse. Since he works all day, and his wife has to take care of the three kids, there is no time for them to take us around the city and really explain in detail.
My uncle knows Penny through years of working together, and friendship, and he decided to set up a time for us to take a tour, so we aren't just wondering throughout the streets of Toulouse. At first I wasn't really wanting to go onto this tour because it was quite hot out, and the sun was blazing at my eyes, but as we met up with Penny, and she started explaining the history and showing us around, I really began to enjoy this.
He also told me that every tour she gives, she always brings a snack and something to drink, which on this one she brought finger cake, water, and English milk tea, which was really nice in the hot sun.
The tour was only two hours long, which was really perfect for us. She gave us information about some of the buildings and some museums that we could go into on our stay, and as we walked to certain areas, we saw some shops that really made my friend and I want to walk back and check out.
Penny really makes these tours personal, and unique, which i really enjoyed. You aren't with other people, or a large group, and you are just with your family and friends, or even by yourself.
If you are ever in or near Toulouse, I do suggest booking a day to go on a tour and learn a little bit about Toulouse!!

Many thanks for sharing your review & being so open & honest. I'm so pleased you enjoyed the private booking, even with the increases in temperatures & could then get more out of your stay, including shops! Equally glad that you enjoyed the tea & cakes. Hope the rest of your stay is going well too. Best wishes, Penny
