During a week's visit to Sarlat in October, we took four tours offered by Orphorus. These were: Beynac, Domme & Boat Ride; Castles & Gardens of the Dordogne Valley; Rocamadour; and Lascaux II. They were all wonderful! Marion was our driver/guide for Rocamadour, and Annalise for the other three. Apart from being extremely competent drivers, they both displayed a thorough... More

Orpheus Tours with guide Marion Charles is the way to see and understand the many scenic and historical sights in Sarlat La Caneda. Marion will take you to historical museums to view Sarlat Cave history in a tour guided by her that shows major items that you would fail to recognize on your own. After you see the museum she...

In July, after enjoying Sarlat Saturday Market in the morning, I took Ophorus Tour in afternoon. Marion took me to Domme, (one of the most beautiful village In France with its unique city plan), La Roque Gageac, (where i can have a peaceful cruise in a very clean Dordogne river), and Beynac (i really admire the castle and the village)....

This was a very interesting and informative tour and included a beautiful drive through the Vezere and Dordogne river valleys. Our guide, Marion, was friendly, well-prepared and enthusiastic about the caves and prehistoric life. The only thing that keeps us from giving a five star rating is not related to our experience with OphorusTours, but with the very crowded and... More

Our guide Marion was very pleasant but seemingly not interested in providing extra information such as other places we could visit. While we were late for our tour, we had a lot of time in the rest of the day which was not efficiently filled. We thought after our own efforts, that Domme was worth a visit, the boat ride... More

Bonjour Peggy, Thank you for taking some time to review your trip on TA. I am a bit surprised though at your grading of the tour as we had made great efforts for you on that day to make it as smooth and pleasant as possible. You mention that you were late and that already means that you missed out... More

We had the good experience of two very good drivers, one picked us up at 6 P.M. at our cruise ship in Bordeaux and delivered us to our hotel about 2¼ hours later. The second guide/driver picked us up at our Sarlat hotel and did a short tour of some spots we wanted to see in Sarlat and then proceeded... More

Excellent tour. Our guide Marion is a very informative person. She told us everything we need to know before we arrive at the caves. We feel very lucky to be able to join this tour because both my friend and I could not drive. There is no way to go to the sites without driving. The arrangement of the tour... More

Our guide Marion was informative and personable. The half day tour was an excellent way to see Rocamadour from Sarlat. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ophorous tours to others. We booked on-line from Australia and the communication was prompt, personal and trouble free.

We really enjoyed this tour which we booked through the very helpful Sarlat tourism office. We had an interesting tour of Sarlat, a boat ride down the Dordogne river looking at the beautiful scenery, a visit to beautiful Beynac, then onto the prehistory museum at Les Eyzies and finally an amazing tour of Lascaux2 caves. Marion, our guide was efficient... More

Excellent tour - would highly recommend it. Our tour guide, Marion, spoke very good English, was extremely knowledgeable of the area, and was an expert in its history including pre-history and anthropology. She really engaged our tour group and created a learning experience for us and made the day a very enjoyable one. Jim & Diane from Iowa
