    Silvanna was awesome. She was pleasant, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about Toulouse, the city she lives in and loves. Walking around Toulouse with her was a rewarding and entertaining experience. She knew a lot, answered our questions, suggested a wonderful place for lunch afterwards. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get to know the city better. Our only regret was that we didn’t have more time to explore some of the things she pointed out on the tour as we left the city afterwards. Thank you Silvanna!!

    Our cards were ready for us to collect when we went to the Tourist Office. However, had we known in advance, we could probably have collected them from our hotel. Despite having an empty box to request where the pass could be collected, no 'suggestions' were forthcoming. I was advised that I could not collect them from the airport when I entered that in the box. Detailing planning of visits sometimes required to prevent disappointment on Mondays when some museums are shut. The use of the card, albeit we had a Premium, alleviated any necessity to search for cash or credit cards when hopping on and off public transport or entering attractions.
