“Even though we had explored Montpellier for almost a week, there was so much more this tour gave us. Julia is a very knowledgeable guide with a lovely sense of humour. We enjoyed our two hours with her v much and learnt a lot more about the city than we had been able to glean by ourselves.”

A fascinating and enjoyable tour revealing many secrets about Montpellier

Recommended by Hilary, France (France Mon 25 Feb 2019)
“After having visited Montpellier many times over a 30-year period, I learned more than I could have hoped for on this excellent guided tour with Danielle. I saw many buildings in a new light and understood how they had come to be built and by whom. 1000-years of history was revealed in fascinating detail, such as the meaning of many of the stone-carvings that decorate the medieval and Haussman-era fascades; the history of Montpellier's Jewish community through the ages; the grand urban plans (some of which never came to fruition!) over the centuries. We visited an ancient underground Jewish baths and finished the tour with the stunning panorama over the city from the top of the triumphal arch (which is older than Paris' Arc de Triomphe). I wholeheartedly recommend this tour to anyone visiting (or already living in) Montpellier and its surrounds.”

Talking about history

Recommended by Katie, Cape Verde (Cape Verde Mon 04 Feb 2019)
“Excellent overview of the city, with more talking than walking. I would have liked to go further even though it was raining hard. It would have been nice to see more interiors especially since it was raining. The guide was great with lots of maps that I could not see and documents that were impossible to read. But it was a lot of history which is good. Unfortunately, he was a patronizing chauvinist as are so many French men who have it stuck in their brains that women are somehow others, but that’s also part of the tour nest pas?”

Excellent Guided City Tour of Montpellier

Recommended by Janette, United States (United States Mon 21 Jan 2019)
“The tour provided by the tourist center was the best city tour I've ever been on (which is quite a few tours). The tour guide's expertise, enthusiasm, ability to speak effectively to a group, photos and other materials he showed to underscore certain details, and the access he provided us normally not available - to see the Jewish bath and to enter the "L'arc de Triomphe" -- all made for a guided tour that ended up being the highlight of my visit to Montpellier. A very, very big thank you to the Tourist Office and the Tour Guide for providing this experience. Thanks to the Tourist Office for suggesting it! ”
