The main thing is that it made me take a tour big enough to see a lot of the city. You have to enter all the churches because they have a lot of history and are very beautiful. I would only add, as an option, more info within each destination, since architecture, paintings, etc. have many interpretations that one does not know about, even more so if one does not speak French. Some churches have screens and posters in Spanish but in Una they showed a documentary video that made me realize that I was missing a lot of art history and I had time to listen to it even if it was

Excellent tour of Toulouse highlights and history.

Silvanna was awesome. She was pleasant, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about Toulouse, the city she lives in and loves. Walking around Toulouse with her was a rewarding and entertaining experience. She knew a lot, answered our questions, suggested a wonderful place for lunch afterwards. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get to know the city better. Our only regret was that we didn’t have more time to explore some of the things she pointed out on the tour as we left the city afterwards. Thank you Silvanna!!

The guide was brilliant, he had very good english and a great knowledge of the area. The sites that we visited were interesting and the guide was very funny and cheerful. I would recommend to anyone.
