This is a 2 day private tour step on guided tour although I can hire a car if you wish.

As your Private Guide / Translator we will explore fantastic prehistoric cave art in Lascaux IV, plus the beautiful cave art of Rouffignac, the famous museum in Les Eyzies and the PIP plus another local prehistoric cave.

As I have worked as a custodian and guide of prehistoric cave art in two major sites in the Dordogne including Lascaux II , I have an indepth knowledge of this ancient and mysterious culture which I would love to share with you.
We will visit the brand new state of the art Lascaux IV.
Here there are 2 replicas of the chambers of the Lascaux cave containing beautiful copies of these world famous paintings. There is also an interactive museum.

I had the chance to see this site which opened on December 14th 2016 and was impressed by the quality of the reproductions and the sense of being in the real cave.

During this tour we will also visit another privately owned cave with prehistoric paintings

Itinerary

I will meet you at your Hotel.

The morning of the first day we will drive to Montignac where we will visit the famous facsimile Lascaux IV.

This will be followed by a delicious, regional lunch.
