A Recent Review of this tour

This tour with Christian exceeded all our expectations. We wanted to visit the Perigueux region for the day since my husband's family was originally from this area. Christian prepared a wonderful itinerary beginning with a visit to the Cathedral and market in Perigueux. His commentary on the region included history and was interesting and informative. Christian then took us to Rouffignac for a visit to the caves--an amazing experience. We had a memorable day and highly recommend Christian.
