Full day tour to Lascaux brand new International center, discovering the UNESCO sites of the Vezere Valley


A journey in Dordogne is a journey back in the past. And which past: Prehistoric times!
I will make sure you experience the best of Perigord culture and history with the benefit of a tailor-made programme. While driving along the Unesco site of the Vezere Valley, focus on the conditions of existence of Cro-Magnon, his everyday life and the numerous tracks remaining nowadays.
As a highlight of the day, we will spend time discovering the new Lascaux International Center for cave paintings(opened on Dec. 2016)an outstanding replica of most paintings of the original cave. Experience the best technology to fully understand the "how" and try to answer the "why" of those 20 000 years old paintings.
Enjoy lunch in a charming village along the Vezere river, for either a gourmet menu or a local products experience. In the afternoon, upon your wishes and needs: Maison Forte de Reignac or Grand Roc dwellings, or a stroll Les Eyzies "Capital of Prehistoric Times", or Rouffignac cave
I remain flexible to adapt on site

A Recent Review of this tour

Nathalie was consistently helpful and knowledgable. She was a delight to be with, and our tour of Bordeaux and the caves in the Dordogne was suberb. She brought maps as well as her own knowledge so that we would better understand. Her driver Benjamin was also great. We never needed to be concerned about our travels, and he also was most pleasant. We felt very lucky to be able to enjoy the services of these two lovely people. Many many thanks! Martie and Bob Sachs
