We went on an All Day Dordogne Tour with our guide Marion. She was very informative but when we got to the point of getting on a boat ride in the Dordogne River, as specified in their itinerary, she informed us that the company tickets have not been purchased and that we could not do the trip. But what we... More

Rocamadour, Caves, Castles and Gardens - these tours gave us a great sense of the history and surroundings of Sarlat. In particular, local guides in the caves were extremely informative. We also learned more about medieval history from our Ophorus guide than ever before. Ophorus facilitated our exploration of the area without a car.

While attending a wedding, we enjoyed a fantastic tour to both of the locations with 20 people. Claire, Eric (Driver) and Sarah ( our English speaking guide) were so helpful and knowledgeable that we totally have a understanding of the area's history and people. You could not ask for a better company! Merci

My two sisters and I enjoyed two full-day tours in the Lot-Dordogne region with Marion as our guide and both were exceptional. The country, villages and historical sites were beautiful and interesting, and Marion made it even more so with her friendliness and extensive knowledge of the region's history and architecture. Apart from the places we expected to see, she... More

Claire at Ophorus planned a great series of tours for me. I went on two of the regularly scheduled tours and two private all day tours of the area. After many emails back and forth, she designed tours based on what I wanted to see. My guide, AnnaLise, was knowledgeable and very pleasant. I really got to see a great... More

Dear Mjcrawford5101, Thank you, thank you for this great review. After having just received a terrible review that coined us as the 'worst company ever', you cannot imagine how comforting and reassuring it is to read a complete opposite review. I would like to personally thank you for having trusted our company in organizing your stay in the Dordogne. Both... More

I booked tours with this company - they said they were available. Then they emailed days later to see they weren't available. They suggested our tours and then took the money for those but they weren't available. I had already booked non-refundable accommodation so had to go to the towns anyway. Ruined a week of my holiday. Never again.

Dear kpetrie2014, After 10 years of organizing tours in various locations in France, I thought I had pretty much read all possible types of reviews - the better and the worst. Your review certainly stands out! You followed one of our tours and enjoyed it as per our guide feedback. For the rest, we only charge for tours that are... More

We took the day trip from Sarlat with Marion. This tour with just 6 people began with pick up near our hotel and continued for the day with stops at Lascaux II, the prehistory museum, and Rouffignac cave, plus stops in a couple of small towns that Marion especially liked. We found Ophorus easy to book online and exceptionally well... More

This was our second experience with Ophorus tours as we used the company in Toulouse in 2012. We took two tours 'All Dordogne in a day' and the afternoon half day tour of Rocamadour. Marion F was our guide on the 'Dordogne' tour and she was exceptional. Her knowledge of anthropology and prehistory made the tour outstanding. We had a... More

We were disappointed that we couldn't go on the 1-hour boat trip part of the tour, and the substitution of visiting Josephine Baker's house would not have been our choice. Luckily, it was a beautiful day, and the scenery was lovely. Can't imagine a self-drive tour of this region. Better to sit back and let an expert work out the... More
