“We really enjoyed the Ophorus tour of Rocamadour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2012

In October 2012, we took the 1/2 day Ophorus tour from Sarlat to Rocamadour. Marion, our tour guide and driver, spoke excellent English, and was very informative. As she drove, she conversed with us about local special agricultural products (mushrooms, truffles, walnuts, chestnuts) and cuisine, and pointed out the castles as we passed. As we walked through Rocamadour, she explained its history, and clarified for us which parts of the architecture were medieval, and which were 19th century "improvements." We were very glad we had taken the tour; it was both more relaxing and more rewarding than a visit on our own would have been.

“A Delicious Taste of the Dordogne”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2012

My friend and I took a half day tour of the Dordogne with Ophorous. There was only one other person on the trip with us and it was a marvelous introduction to the area. The guide was extremely knowledgable and friendly and provided the perfect balance between and educating and relaxing experience.

I would highly recommend the company to anyone looking to explore Sarlat and the surrounding area.

“Three days of day tours, great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2012

We were in Sarlot for five days. On three of those days we used Ophorus Tours. Since we had no desire to drive, Ophorus seemed like a perfect solution. We were not disappointed, quite the contrary. We spoke minimal French however our Ophorus tour guide Marion had a good command of English. As she drove, Marion was able to provide information about the country side and villages we passed in route to each day's destination. Many of the Ophorus tours we chose had local guides at the site whose job it was to provide specific information for that destination. These guides were employees of the site, not Ophorus employees. If we chose a tour whose site guide spoke only French, Marion translated and assisted so we were able to understand. Marion was always available for us and the other members of the tour. As a group (maximum 8 people) we were offered a choice of where to eat, city or village, suggestions of restaurants were provided and we were never rushed. The entire three days of tours was a really good introduction to the area.

“Sarlat, Dordogne region day tours with Ophorus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2012

This was a wonderful experience on the two days we joined the day tours. We were very fortunate in that on the first day we were the only tourists and on the second day, only one other tourist on the bus that held seven/eight people. We had a great day, the ladies on both days who drove the buses were very obliging, although one did drive a little fast for our liking, but we survived the day with the exceptional detailing of the tour. We were taken to some spectacular viewpoints of the castles on the landscape, a boat ride taking in the chateaux, fortresses, wonderful views from the river; it was fantastic. I would recommend the company for their thoroughness, politeness, punctuality and knowledge of the area which was incredible. Brilliant two days that captured far more than we could on our own.

“Ophorus day tours to caves”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2012

I took 2 day tours with Anne lise who was full of knowledge about the area and the caves. Our group each day had 3 to 4 people which made the tour very personal. The van was comfortable and we went on the back roads and saw the beautful countryside. The tours made my visit to the area a memorable one. I did the pech Merle and st cirq tour and the lascoux and rouffiniac caves tours. Ophorus does a great job from start to finish.
