Rouennais for 25 years, passionate about history, I have experienced 5 editions of the Armada so I know perfectly the event as well as the city. I know the nooks and crannies of Rouen and the historical secrets hidden in the city with 100 steeples.

I had a tour with Julien brother Ludovic who was very nice. I had luck and was the only one on the tour so he could really personalize it. The tour was great und the guide very nice, would recommend! :)

GÉNIAL !! Nous avons fait la visite avec Ludovic, le frère de Julien qui a été super ! Il nous a montré des endroits méconnus de Rouen, nous a fait partager son "amour" pour Rouen, a partagé des anecdotes et bon plans avec nous ! Il sait s'adapter à tous les publics (enfants, parents et grands parents !). Très attentionné et à l'écoute. Petit plus : nous étions 6 et il a retenu tout de suite nos prénoms (nous étions très impressionnés !!)

Julien’s brother, Ludovic was our guide. He was wonderful. A great sense of humor and he shared much about the local architecture and history. We highly recommend. It was a very enjoyable experience and a bargain for the price.

Ludovic guided us on trip. He was accommodating, considerate and full of anecdotes and advice. He pointed out little places which I would not have noticed myself. It was enjoyable!
