Toulouse: its secrets and quirkiness

Toulouse, France

Check local COVID-19 restrictions before booking

Experience hosted by Florie

90 mins
Up to 4 people
Hosted in English, French

What you'll do

Allow approximately 1 hour and a half for this walk in the heart of Toulouse. This will be the opportunity to discover - between historical facts and unusual anecdotes - the "pink city" in a whole new light. The departure will begin in a shopping street in the city centre and the walk will continue to the district of Esquirol. We will go down Alsace-Lorraine street which, if we take the time to stop there, reveals many secrets. Then we will go through the Place du Capitole, then down to the banks of the Garonne. The stories of the buildings that we will see then are not very known.
Other things to note
As stated, my tour is for 4 people. However, if you're willing to book my tour but you are a group of more than 4 people, do not hesitate to ask me and I will modify the number of people for the tour.

I am a native of the region and am lucky to do several activities. Firstly, I am a translator, but I also teach French and English. Outside of work, I spend my time with my family and friends, but I also spend a lot of time planning my next trips. I really like walks and cinema and I often run on the banks of the Garonne. Guided tours are for me a great way to get out of my daily life but also, to make people discover my city and its many secrets.

Florie transmet un savoir historique relié à la ville qui nous a transporté à travers les siècles. C'est ressourçant et enrichissant de sortir des sentiers battus.

Perfect Tour, Florie tells fascinating stories about Toulouse. She knows her city very, very well and it was a pleasure to listen to her. It is not about dates, but more about lovely stories - so interesting and highly recommended!

Florie nous a montré des bâtiments et des lieux qu'on ne remarquerait pas forcément de nous-mêmes. Le but n'était pas de voir les lieux les plus touristiques mais de découvrir la ville et son histoire à travers quelques constructions et anecdotes croustillantes. C'est une bonne immersion qui donne envie d'en savoir plus sur l'histoire toulousaine

Je fût une superbe immersion au cœur d'une ville que je ne connaissait pas, ce périple m'as permis de voir au delà du superficielle l'histoire magnifique de Toulouse. Florie a été un guide gentille qui m'as mis à l'aise et on a vite sympathiser.
