A Recent Review of this tour

I have had a wonderful trip to the Dordogne area. Christian was a very knowledgably guide. A walking historical encyclopaedia for the region. Taking me through time and what has made and influenced this part of France. Christian is an experienced driver and brought me safely to our various destinations, constantly interrupted by my continuous flow of questions. When having a private tour, flexibility is crucial, Christian found the places I wanted to see and we stopped when interesting places were pass
