We absolutely loved this tour - the variety of places we visited, the beauty of both the towns and the landscapes. The pace was perfect.... we weren't rushed and were able to linger in places of particular interest. I can't believe we covered so much in one day, yet still felt energised at the end of the trip. We were very impressed with our guide David who shifted effortlessly between english and french. He was charming and knowledgeable and very generous with his time.

I would definitely recommend this trip. David was super attentive and tailored the pace of the tour to our needs. You can feel that he loves his job. He even brought chairs and a table for our picknick. On top, the sights are lovely and the nature stunning.

Excellent trip with a little group of 8 people - David was a very caring guide and made everyone happy as he is very flexible. The scenery of this trip is breathtaking - we are left with beautiful memories - thank you David! Greetings from Switzerland …

Great tour. Tour guide David is wonderful and knowledgeable. Full day. Bring shoes for hiking in Moureze part of tour, your own lunch for picnic and a swim suit if you want to take a quick dip at pont de diablo on way to Saint Gilhem.

Very nice trip and very nice guide! We recommend ! Thanks for the nice tour
