What people are saying about Place du Capitole

We loved this tour, it was a lot of fun and the food and drinks were really terrific. We visited shops that sold foie gras, violet products, wine, and chocolate and a restaurant that served Cassoulet and Aligot. The food was really fantastic and the gentleman who owned the restaurant was very welcoming and provided an interesting history of the food and local traditions. The wine and chocolate merchants were similarly knowledgeable, friendly and welcoming. They provided a lot of information, and the wine and chocolates were delicious. Jeremy, our guide, was very friendly and showed us the large market in Toulouse and the river, in addition to the shops we visited, which an added bonus. It was one of the best tours we have attended, and the experience Jeremy facilitated was wonderful. He seemed very proud of his city and was eager to show it off. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in sampling the food and wine of Toulouse. It was fun and very informative.

This was a great way to experience the food culture of Toulouse. All the vendors were so passionate and enthusiastic about their products, we really had a great time. Our guide Jeremie is a sommelier and was very knowledgeable about wines in the region, and spoke excellent English. Our group was small which added to the experience!
