Elyse is a knowledgeable engaging guide who opened my eyes to the history of pastel and the influence it had on the city. The tour was fascinating and Elyse was very happy to answer my questions. I already loved Toulouse having been a couple of times before but now I look at it with a little more knowledge. Well worth... More

I found Elyse through the Join Us in France podcast with Annie Sargent while I was researching Toulouse. I reached out via email to request a tour and met Elyse this morning at my hotel. Wow! Does she know a lot about the history of this town. Originally from New York, she's lived here over 25 years. So great to... More

I so very much enjoyed my walking tour of Toulouse with Elyse. At my request the focus was on the Resistance and the Gardens, blended in with the general history of the region. Elyse is clearly an expert in the field and passionate about her work. My tour went well over our agreed time but that wasn't a problem. She... More

They just posted the 100th edition of one of the best travel podcasts on the web. It is must listening for those planning a trip to France,... More

Elyse has so many facts at her finger tips and we found out many new things about Toulouse. I especially enjoyed the anecdotes about the people of the city. She continued longer than the two hours she said the tour would last so we got good value for money. We could have covered more ground, but there was so much... More

Spent the morning with the lovely and charming Elyse who left us feeling that we wished we had more time to spend in Toulouse. Lots of information on the history and architecture of this richly fascinating city. Elyse took us to hidden parts we would not have found on our own. Highly recommended for all travellers interested in history and... More
