Hi, I'm the guy that'll show you the fun things that there are to do in Toulouse, and will share with you the dramatic events that have occurred and not just the dry boring history. I am a writer, researcher, barman, quizmaster and history fanatic. 18 years ago I moved from Edinburgh to Toulouse, that's from Rain and Whisky to Sun and Swimming Pools. And no, as much as I miss my people, I've never, ever regretted the decision. I love this place, I love how alive it is, and always has been. And, if you let me show it to you, you will too.

About the tour

Visiting Toulouse? Want to know what there is to do, to see? These are the questions we try to answer for you on this Tour. Salted with history and peppered with anecdotes, taking this Tour will not only make you feel like you posses a figurative "Menu" of what Toulouse has to offer, but that you have already enjoyed a tasty first course.

Join me on this tour to show you the key sites and regale you with their rich History. From local Markets to ancient Martyrs, Fighting Matadors to the evils of the Inquisition. I'll make sure you're just as well informed as to where's best to eat, drink, have fun and how get it done.

We will visit Le Statue de Pierre Goudouli, Le Marché Victor Hugo, La Basilica Saint Sernin, Place du Capitole, Les Jacobins, Place Saint Pierre, La Daurade, Hotel Assezat, Rue Saint Rome and The church of Saint Jerome.

At the end of the tour there will be time for a group photo and to answer any final questions you might have before taking our leave, hoping that you've not just had a good time but will have learned something of the City, its History, Culture and what there is to do and see in a place that both we and Pierre have, and still do.

Outstanding guide & very enjoyable tour. Harry is not the type of guide who recites from wikipedia, but deep dives in history with a passion. We were impressed by how knowledgeable he was whatever our question was. Thanks a lot! Will recommend to our friends visiting Toulouse.
