About the guru Harry

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...

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

Join this tour to hear about all of the important events in Toulouse's History.

Like the Crusade and the great Fire; the Huguenot riots; or the great boom from the Pastel trade.

We will visit the Basilica, the Cathedral, Place du Salin and Carmes all in one Tour.

A tour of Toulouse is no good if you don't get to see Carmes.

I'm very happy that I've added this Tour and I really think you'll like it too.

Many thanks to Harry! I liked the way he joked all the time. And also Harry will tell you some facts about Toulouse, about which not really much people know :)

Great tour! I liked that he told us a bit of the history as we passed through the small streets and buildings that we would not notice. He was very attentive and explained all the details. I liked that he didn't make us act like tourists, such as take funny pictures or disrupt the circulation. I had trouble finding the group at the start, it would help if he had a flag or fixed a specific spot.

Response from Harry:

No Flags. I refuse to be weird guy in the corner of the square holding up a flag. I bought a hat... Damn. O.K. alright, I'll buy a brightly coloured umbrella... Grumble, grumble... Aside from all that, thanks for the review Suzana. Glad you had fun and I hope the rest of your holiday rocked! H

Loved Harry's new edition to his Toulouse tours. He told a few nice stories about the town's history.

Harry is and experienced guide who is great to listen to. Honestly Harry, if you hadn't said it, we wouldn't have noticed that this was your first go at this new tour.

The tour was great, Harry is very funny and loves history and dark "ghost" stories. It was very informative and chill, he also recommended good and cheap places to eat and hang out. And in the end he was a sweetheart and said that the people that were students didn't have to pay anything. Would definitely recommend!
