Tour details


Tours operate rain or shine! We will be walking at least 2 km along beautiful – but uneven – cobblestone streets. Most of the tour is spent walking or standing, as most of the locations that we visit don’t have seating. Please contact me directly regarding accessibility issues, as not all stops may be wheelchair accessible.

 

Meeting location


We’ll meet very close to one of the major landmarks in the city center, easily accessible by metro. Exact location and detailed directions will be emailed along with your ticket confirmation. The tour ends at the Toulouse Christmas market in the Place du Capitole

Good to Know


What's included

All food and drink samples provided on the tour. We will be eating a lot of sweet things, so consider only having a light lunch/snack to balance out the sugar intake. The descriptions above are meant to give you a general idea of what to expect. What we actually eat/drink may vary based on availability.

What's not included

Additional food and drink that you wish to purchase yourself. If we have a larger group, I discourage shopping during the tour, so that we can keep moving. However, you’ll receive an email after the tour with a list of locations visited and what we tasted at each so that you can return later to continue your “research.”

What to wear or bring

We will be walking at least 2 km along cobblestone streets, so comfortable shoes and weather-appropriate clothing is a must. Please dress appropriately (and bring an umbrella if necessary) to make sure you enjoy your time on the tour. We may sit down from time to time, but be prepared to spend most of the tour standing or walking. Again, comfortable clothing and shoes is a must.

To reduce environmental waste, I don’t distribute plastic water bottles, so if you would like water during the tour, please bring a reusable water bottle with you.

Dietary restrictions/food allergies

This tour is vegetarian and non-alcoholic (unless you choose spiced wine as your drink at the end of the tour). I am also happy to accommodate the following diets with advance notice:

  • Gluten-free (NOT Celiac)
  • Nut allergies (unless cross-contamination is a serious issue)

Any of the above dietary requirements MUST be noted when booking to allow time to make arrangements for substitutions. I ask that those with dietary restrictions book tours at least 48 hours in advance! If you are vegan, please contact me in advance of booking to discuss your options. If you have any questions regarding dietary accommodations or would like to see if I can accommodate other restrictions or food allergies (I often can – please ask!), email me directly at jessica@tasteoftoulouse.com before booking.

I am happy to reschedule your reservation for another date (pending availability) or reassign your tickets to another person with at least 48 hours notice.
