I recommend Beatrice's tour to anyone wishing to see this beautiful part of southwest France. Beatrice sequenced the tour so that we got the most out of every stop. There was little waiting in lines or waiting for ferry boats. My wife and I enjoyed listening to her descriptions of the area as we walked along the beautiful neighborhoods of Arcachon and Cap Ferret. Our walk up the Dune de Pyla was unforgettable.
