Based on a first experience as a guide during his studies, Antoine decided to start Free Walking Tour Nantes during summer 2018. Although he works full-time as an engineer during the week, his passion for the city and history of Nantes motivated him to patiently gather and select information and historical anecdotes, elaborate the best circuit and give as many tours as possible to make it even better through 2019. He is now proud to give tours that are highly appreciated as proven by the comments given by visitors on various travel websites such as TripAdvisor. The goal has always been to make curious travellers leave Nantes with their mind full of stories about the city and a good understanding of the most important events that happened in the city and around, within their context.
The tour starts near Les Ducs de Bretagne castle, follows the - visible and disappeared - medieval walls, ventures through the neighbourhoods built later in the XVIII and XIX centuries and finally ends by the Loire river to admire the famous great mechanical elephant of the Machines de l'Ile.
Unfortunately the COVID crisis has put a - momentary! - stop to the tours but Antoine cannot wait until the situation improves to give tours again.
