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. What's more, don't hesitate to ask me to change the date of the experience.

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.

Fun tour where you find out some interesting details about the city. It’s not supposed to be a main tour of the famous landmarks, but a good way to see things you would have missed otherwise. We had a good time with Florie

Florie was very hospitable and kind to give the tour in English. The stops on the tour were very interesting and gave an “off the beaten path” look into Toulouse. Anyone visiting by chance should give it a try!

Expérience très sympa pour visiter Toulouse autrement. Des petites anecdotes, lever les yeux, regarder un détail. Florie propose un parcours varié et agréable. Nous avons apprécier la visite en anglais ;)

The tour is great. Florie is great. She has a wealth of knowledge of a bunch of things hidden throughout the city. I had the chance to walk around a couple days before my tour, so I was surprised to walk down the same streets realizing i missed some pretty significant landmarks. 10/10 would recommend if you’re interested in learning the little details of Toulouse.

Florie nous a fait voyager dans l’histoire, l’architecture, des façades insolites, des anecdotes. Une balade pour découvrir Toulouse que nous ne connaissions pas.

Florie est une jeune fille très sympathique. Les anecdotes sont amusantes. Nous encourageons Florie à poursuivre son activité, à prendre le temps de donner des explications qualitatives et sans stress :)
