    The idea of circumnavigating a house seems ridiculous. Puts Magellan to shame.

    I am confused! "Le tour" is "a tour" although "la maison" is "the house". Why?

    It seems that "faire le tour" as a whole unit is an expression for "going around."

    Thank you. I assumed it meant a tower of the house!!

    It is perfectly correct to make a tour as well as take a tour.
