Hi, my name is Caroline !

Welcome to Brest! I started Brest Walking Tours in 2019, after a long while of travelling. UK, South America, Europe, Australia, NZ… I’ve been to a few places, but I never managed to forget Brest.

Reviews from former visitors


« Enthusiastic, energetic, engaging»

Her candid description of a city she so obviously loves and is rooting for every step of the way is interesting, informative, and refreshingly objective.

« A great way to learn about Brest & Brittany»

Caroline guided us through the City, providing insight into the history of the sights we saw, but also conveying the history of the region and it’s relationship to France.

« A must do if it’s your first time in Brest.»

The tour was very informative but not OTT plus we received good advice on places to visit within Brest and in the surrounding towns.
