About
Curious about Nantes’ history and major attractions? Let me guide you through the city centre, walking from one stop to another while uncovering Nantes’ secrets and most interesting anecdotes. The tour will start near the castle and will roughly circle around the old town. We will then cross the Loire and end the tour by the Machines de l’Ile, on Nantes’ island, after about 2 hours of relaxed walking, but intense learning! Until summer begins, reservations are required. Feel free to contact me! There are no entrance fees, just go with the flow, and if you enjoyed it I will gladly accept tips at the end!
Nantes, Pays de la Loire, France

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I took the Wednesday tour in Nantes, very convenient during the week as it doesn’t interfere with weekend plans around Nantes. The guide was very nice and informative, I recommend to take this tour when in Nantes.

Antoine gave us a great tour of Nantes and I highly recommend it to others. We had spent 4 days touring on our own in the city before joining Antoine's tour and yet we found every nugget of information and story fascinating. It was clear that Antoine loves Nantes, loves guiding and loves sharing with tourists. His advise on what to do after his tour and even outside the region was spot on! He engaged 3 teenage children, after lunch, on a hot August day. That says it all. He's amazing. Don't miss the tour!

Thank you so much Yael for this excellent review, and also for the pronunciation tips! I had a really good time too guiding you and your family around Nantes. I hope the rest of your trip was good as well. If I ever go visit Israel, I will try and take one of your tours for sure!

Great to have the option of a free tour in a not very big or famous city. The guide was very pleasant and he told us the story and interesting anecdotes of Nantes in a perfect Spanish. I highly recommend this tour!

Antoine was so very helpful in accommodating us (5 adults) at a time that fitted into our short weekend break. A two hour tour lasted nearly three as we all got so immersed in the history, stories and character of Nantes the time flew by. Antoine’s English was impeccable, he kept us interested until the very end. It was a great way to get a good feel for the vibe and culture of Nantes which meant we didn’t have to waste any time finding our way around and could get straight into enjoying everything the city has to offer. I can’t recommend Antoine highly enough. He works for free but is very happy to receive tips. Having already decided how much we were likely going to give a guide in tips we were so impressed that we paid him more as that was what he deserved. He his passionate about Nantes and this shines through in his dialogue.

This walking tour is a brilliant way of exploring the interesting city of Nantes. It helped us to see just how much there is to see and do in Nantes, and gave us a great overview of the city. Antoine is an excellent guide and I couldn't recommend this tour more highly.

Exceptional tour and tour guide. Our Guide, Antoine, was very informed about the city and history of Nantes. He showed a good mix of historical landmarks and modern architecture. Without this tour we would have missed many important parts of the city, and have many unanswered questions. Our guide was also very helpful in providing recommendations for food/drink locations after the tour. Great Value & Highly recommend!
