Our guests were pleased with the Chateau, the wine, the food as well as the people who served us. Especially, Emma did an excellent job of entertaining while we had quite heavy shower for two hours. She managed to keep the attention of visitors and gracefully guided them in different parts of the Chateau. Well done! So, all in all it turned out a memorable experience for our guests.

We had a wonderful day today! Thank you for setting it up for us – Belinda was a great guide and driver!


Our tour was excellent! Florence was a fabulous guide also. Everyone was very pleased with all the sites as well!

Kim G.

We had a wonderful day with Ariane and Crystal! Everyone enjoyed the day!

Filippo R.

Absolutely amazing experience. You will believe you are back in time in the original caves. The exhibition centre itself is a testament to modern design that blends with its surroundings and supports the whole experience.

Renee W.

It was a wonderful tour — I was able to visit beautiful villages, and the guide has excellent skill of English. Picturesque scenery is everywhere in this area, but few public transportation is available. So, a small group tour like this is very helpful. And thank you again Ms. Florence, I was very lucky because I had such a friendly guide like you!

Anne S.

We took a tour to the Museum of Natural History in Les Eyzies, the Grotte de Ruffignac, and Lascaux IV. It was just our family, grandparents, children and grandchildren. Our driver and guide, Ben, was very helpful, pleasant and knowledgeable. And particularly good with our two grandsons, aged 7 and 5. They loved the tour and it was great to get them interested in prehistory. Thank you Ben! Not inexpensive, but definitely worth the cost.

Andrew M.

Our guide was terrific and took us to all the main sites. Very knowledgeable and knew the answers to most of our questions. Very good tour! Would definitely recommend!

Vincent T.

Our guide was knowledgeable, personable, and a local, so knowledge of small roads, and history was excellent. We had a good amount of time to see the Cathedral, have lunch, and watch the crowds.

Yoda M.

Steven was in Bayeux ahead of time, and showed us some wonderful Canadian battle and burial sites. The tour could not have been better!

Roy D.

Thanks for a great experience. Will hopefully be visiting the area again in the near future!

Roy D.

Emily was a brilliant guide who clearly knows her subject very well and is excellent at explaining and answering questions. She managed the whole day perfectly and is clearly a first-class guide not only in her knowledge of the area and wine but also on how to keep people interested. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Emily (and Ophorus) to any friends, family and colleagues that are visiting the area.

Teresa N.

Our guide Pauline was excellent!! We loved her and the tour.

Hale K.

We enjoyed with daily Pearls of Alsace tour. Everything is OK. Our guide informed us about Alsace. She is so kind and well organised. Everything was on time.

Terese W.

Following a particular wonderful day out with our guide Olivier, we would just like to comment on how pleasant he was. Not only was he very knowledgable but his easy going character made us enjoy his company and made the whole day a joyful and friendly outing.


We were very happy with Simon and also with the girl driving the coach, both of them were very polite and professional.
I want to thank you for your good cooperation in this group, it has been very easy to manage the group with your help so, thank you! I hope we can work together again in the near future.

Jean Pierre B. (United States)

It was wonderful! The transportation arrangements were superb, the guides wonderfull, experienced and friendly.

Many thanks for planning another great day for our group!

Rita V. (Johannesburg, South Africa)

Efficient and knowledgeable – Friendly, knowledgeable and efficiently organised. We loved the fact that Alain, our guide, was as excited about visiting the estates as we were. We have used them twice already and will certainly do so again.

Bruce O. (Darien, Connecticut)

Very informative and relaxed tour – Our guide was great and gave us ample time to tour and relax. She was very knowledgeable and stayed on time.

Swetha G. (Bengaluru, India)

Fantastic fun – Wonderful! everyone should experience it because there is no words to explain &our guide was very good educative fun co-operative.

Ann G. (Virginia Beach, Virginia)

Memorable Day – We had an awesome day with Marion, our guide. She was so incredibly knowledgeable and was a joy to spend the day with. It was like taking a prehistoric history class with a professor that students work their schedule around just to be in her class. We hung on her every word. A bonus was that she took us to a tiny village for lunch and we bought some food to eat at a picnic table along the Dodorgne River on a perfect “bluebird day”.

Augusto A. (San Diego, California)

Fantastic tour company – We signed up for 2 tours. We went to see the Lascaux Caves and our guide was very knowledgable we liked the tour so much we decided to sign up for another tour. They do small tours in a van. We can’t recommend this tour company enough. If you are in Sarlat make sure to do a tour with them. Our guide also recommended restaurants and other interesting places to visit.

Paul J. (Adelaide, Australia)

Perfect in every way! – Ophorus staff were helpful from the planning stage to the execution of our tours. We had a wonderful Guide (Florence). Her knowledge of history, local agriculture, politics, local issues and art was amazing. This area of France is so beautiful and a post card at every turn but coupled with an Ophorus tour it’s a wonderful experience. Thanks again Florence and Ophorus!

Janis D. (Bordeaux, Aquitaine, France)

A great moment! – It was just a-ma-zing. A great moment with our very clever guide who learned us a lot of things. Thank you! Sarlat is a beautiful city and the castles are very interesting. We hope to come back very quickly because all the excursions seems to be amazing! I’m very lucky to chose this excursion and I say thank you to Ophorus!

John O. (Hastings, New Zealand)

Guide was great, best way to see the sights in this beautiful area. – We had no car while staying in Sarlat, but even if we had, it would be unlikely we would have seen all the sights our guide Marion drove us to in one day. The distances we covered were long, sometimes windy & very rural, so really needed to know the best route to squeeze in all the highlights. We would recommend considering the day tours Ophorus offers.

Jim M. (Gold Coast, Australia)

Great wine tasting trip – A tour through beautiful country with a knowledgeable tour leader to visit wineries. Each winery had a range of tastings and a good discourse on the growing of the grape and the wine produced.

Theresa M. (Thunder Bay, Canada)

Don’t miss this tour!! – We had a great time on the Alsace wine route tour. Flo was very friendly, warm and entertaining! We all fell in love with the picturesque little villages along the way and of course the wine was spectacular!

Lukas K. (Saarland, Germany)

Great experience and a lovely guide – With our very nice guide Daniele, a very well mixed group of members and some amazing wines, this trip was totally worth it.

Molly S. (Woodbury, Connecticut)

Wonderful Trip! – Our guide Bridgette and the tour was wonderful and a perfect amount of time (and wine)! We loved seeing little towns and sampling some of Alsace’s finest wines! Memories of a lifetime!

David B. (London, United Kingdom)

Excellent trip – Lovely area, well selected vineyards and Aude was an excellent guide. Highly recommended and one if the highlights of our trip.

Christian R. (London, United Kingdom)

Great morning winetasting – We had a great time visiting two wineries in a morning, as well as driving through the Alsace countryside and having some time to explore the small towns. Great guide too.

Charlotte M. (Stavanger, Norway)

Great tour to Medoc! – Highly recommend this tour, will do it again next time someone visits. Our guide was enthusiastic, funny and knowledgeable, and we learnt a lot at the château’s we visited.

Gleicon O. (Curitiba, PR)

Excellent!! – Very nice trip. Our guide Karim was very cool and showed a great knowledge about wines. The wineries visited were very good too!

Carl L. (Saratoga, California)

Wonderful tours in Bordeaux – During our stay in Bordeaux, we went on two wine tours. We enjoyed them a lot! My favorite was the tour of Margaux. Delphine is a sweet girl, she is a great tour guide!

Suzanne H. (Basking Ridge, New Jersey)

Totally enjoyed the experience! – Found the tour guides to be knowledgeable and competent of the area and wineries. They were highly courteous and respectful.

Bruce O. (Darien, Connecticut)

Very informative and relaxed tour – Our guide was great and gave us ample time to tour and relax. She was very knowledgeable and stayed on time.

Tothai4 – Derby, UK

Excellent day out with Adeline yesterday! – Her knowledge of speaking English was only surpassed by her extensive knowledge of her subject – Wine and vineyards!! We shared a joke, and lots of anecdotal history of the area, (all this whilst still driving really well).

Felt that our Chateau visits (3) were very special and personal. Absolutely sure we wouldn’t have got the same access if we had just tried to get in without the company.
