Went on a tour with Elyse -- she is so knowledgeable and makes it feel more like being with a friend who is showing you around than being on a "tour". I enjoyed my time in France and without her expertise, sophistication, sense of humor and general fabuoulousness (is that a word?) it would not have been half the trip it was. Truly a wonderful experience with Elyse!

I just returned from a trip to Paris with Elyse. It was tres tres bien! Elyse is fantastic with many years if experience and the ability to adjust the tour to meet the needs if the group she's working with. Elyse is a wealth of knowledge and very passionate about the places, art, architecture she speaks about. I hope to return someone day and learn about Toulouse with Elyse.

With Elyse I've walked many times into the history, art & architecture of this fabulous ancient city Toulouse. As a relatively recent resident eager to dive below the surface, I've found "Toulouse Guided Walks" to be a key to understanding much about this glorious place. Not yet (wil I ever be?) fluent in French, I cannot go, as Elyse does, to primary sources for my information about the city. Elyse's talks are always entertaining, informative and full of fascinating detail. She speaks with passion; and her talks go deep and range easily across the centuries. Whether one is here on a casual visit or living in Toulouse full time, walks with Elyse are not to be missed.

Elyse Rivin is the most excellent tour guide, a passionate and interesting personality, she makes Toulouse live during all the periods from Roman to Art Deco and everything in between before and after. And the information given is superior to the topics you can find out about in guide books; much, much more and in greater depth. Alll her walks both in Toulouse centre and around are a treat, and a voyage of discovery - hidden courtyards, an alleyway leading to a superb piece of architecture. Even if you have done the specific walk before she always finds something new to add. She is an Art Historian and lover of Toulouse and has the most enormous knowledge of dates and facts, related in a fascinating way that makes me believe that I am part of that piece of history during the walk. I am so looking forward to the next adventure

Toulouse is quite an historical place and the more than 2hrs guided walk experience was one that is not easy to forget in a short time, the people are warm and nice. The city's architectural masterpieces of centuries is a sight to behold by any visitor, quite an experience.
