Registered on October 16, 2023

Hi! I'm Tim, my parents and name might be Dutch, but I grew up in the French South West and after working as a guide in different places for many years now, I decided to go back home to guide in Toulouse. I hold a master's degree in History, so I love to talk about stories from the past. We will learn about the local history but we will also keep the moment light and entertaining. Come and discover the “pink city”!

Tour description

I grew up in this region and would like to share the fascinating history of la ville rose, Toulouse, with the curious ones who come to visit.
We will begin where the story of the city itself also started: at the Garonne river.
After a short stroll along the docks of the river, we will turn into the smaller streets of the center, and get to know the Carmes neighboorhood, its hôtels particuliers, churches and fontaines.
Going up north, we will then get to the epicenter of the city and see the two most iconic monuments of Toulouse: the Capitole and the Basilica of Saint Sernin.

Toulouse must-see spots we will discover together:

  • Place Saint-Pierre
  • Place et Basilique Notre Dame de la Daurade
  • Pont Neuf
  • Hôtel d'Assézat
  • Place de la Trinité
  • Carmes
  • Cathédrale Saint-Etienne
  • Place Saint-Georges
  • Place Salengro
  • Capitole
  • Rue du Taur
  • Basilique Saint-Sernin

We will end our tour not too far from where we started, at the Basilica of Saint Sernin, which you can then take the time to visit on your own. Where is also a nice park area to rest or several restaurants nearby to have lunch. 

Looking forward to having you on my tour !

Tim knows quite a lot about the city, and made a pretty well job. He was easy to talk to and could answer almost all our questions. Now he also knows the one and only Austrian flag on the tour, and he will definitely show it to you on his next tour ;) Thanks Tim, I had a lot of fun!!

Tim is a really great guide who knows how to share his knowledge about the beautiful city of Toulouse. Not one moment of even the slightest boredom arose, quite the opposite in fact! I really recommend taking a walk with Tim.
