What people are saying about Dordogne

We had a small group of 4 with our guide Benoit. Benoit provided good information about the area and he was very easy to understand. The amount of time spent in each of the 3 towns was just enough to get a feel for each small town. The river ride from La Roque-Gageac was pleasant, even though we had to take a different route due to too shallow water. I would definitely recommend this tour if you don't have a car in the Dordogne.

Communication was very good, with helpful information. Our guide was very punctual and proceeded to give us a comprehensive overview of the area’s history and prehistory with humor and relevant anecdotes. We were very comfortable with all aspects of this road tour. The river ride was less exciting for non-French speakers, but our headphones with taped commentary was satisfactory.

Very enjoyable way to get a first taste of the region. Martin was an excellent guide and provided interesting commentary throughout. Very good value trip... highly recommended.

Hope to be with Martin. He knows the history of Périgord very well and knows how to treat us with care.

Pleasant, friendly, informative & worthwhile. Highly recommended.
