Harry's Basilica and Riverbank Private Walking Tour

This is an English Language Tour.
Visiting Toulouse? Want to know what there is to do, to see? These are the questions I'll 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 seen the sights and enjoyed a tasty first course.
This is an afternoon Tour but the Tour itself is the same as the Free Tour I give on alternating mornings and carries the same name. Unlike the Free Tour this Tour has been created for people who don't like the large crowds that can sometimes accompany Free Tours. On this Tour places are limited to a maximum of 15.

    Stop At: Place du President Thomas Wilson, 31000, Toulouse France

    Statue of Pierre Goudouli
    Once a great celebrity and the embodiement of a lost golden age, this post-Troubador singer and pre-Punk rebel fought his entire life for the spirit of a dying culture and to win the competition that was its greatest creation. Ever the Underdog Goudouli never, ever gave up.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Marche Victor Hugo, Place Victor Hugo, 31000, Toulouse France

    One of the best markets Toulouse has to offer. A place where you can get a really good cheese or a proper Cassoulet to take home. But you have to be careful, or you might find yourself with glass of white in hand and sampling some quick oysters with the locals before getting away.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Basilique Saint-Sernin, Place Saint-Sernin, 31000, Toulouse France

    Want to Martyr a Saint? Torture some Heretics? Take some pretty photo's? For nearly 2 thousand years this site's been Toulouse's one stop shop for all sorts of fun. With its two levels of crypts and more history than you can shake a stick at, Saint Sernin's got it all, and we'll tell you all about it.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Le Capitole, 31000, Toulouse France

    Meeting place of the Capitouls. Famous last stand of the Huegenots. This is where, during the Revolution, heads once fell from the Guillotine like Autumn apples. Where the early Pilots would tango in dance halls while the Matadors outside were raising a glass in Cafe's that are still there.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Church of Les Jacobins, 69 rue Pargaminieres, 31000, Toulouse France

    After the Albigensian Crusade the Church invoked the Greatest Inquisition ever known. Tasked with rooting out the tens of thousands of Heretics still living in the region they set about training the new Dominican Monks by the hundred in the necessary "skills", right here.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Place Saint-Pierre, 31000, Toulouse France

    If you're between 18 and 25 and you live in Toulouse this is where you come to party. You bring a six pack or a bottle and you drink it on the steps and enjoy the fantastic view before going up to the square and into one of its many bars. We'll just be passing to enjoy the view. Honest.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Quai de la Daurade, 31000, Toulouse France

    Toulouse was always a wealthy place. It was a Port city and the Daurade was its Port. Hear of the church built on the ancient Temple of Minerva and the best dressed city guardian in the world, the old hidden morgue, how they kept the bodies cool and why you never, ever, buy your Cornetto here.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Hotel d'Assezat, 9 Place D Assezat, 31000, Toulouse France

    In Toulouse the word "Hotel" means something else, and the Town is full of them. This one is its fanciest. Now home to the Bemberg collection, once one of the greatest private art collections in the world, the site of the Hotel Assezat has been a place of import since the Romans first built the city.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Rue Saint Rome, Toulouse France

    The eternal Main Street of a city that was the Capitol of 2 empires. There was once a time where, when you had reached the end of the this road, you had reached the Western edge of the all the Civilised world. Let us show you it and its winding alleys and tell you of all they have witnessed.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Eglise Saint Jerome, 2 rue du Lt Colonel Pelissier, 31000, Toulouse France

    At the end of the WWII when the Nazis came to Toulouse looking to arrest the most experienced pilots in the world in an effort to keep them out of allied hands. It was here that the Resistance hid them. Learn their fate and wonder as we do "Why is there no Movie of this story"?

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Place du President Thomas Wilson, 31000, Toulouse France

    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 love. Thanks.
