We selected and organised the four day "Splendours of the Dordogne" and the one day Peche Merle Cave and Saint Cirq Lapopie tours over the internet prior to our departure from Australia. Our guide for the 5 days, Marion, was excellent with a wonderful knowledge of the history of this fascinating region; (on three days there were only the two... More

We recently did four tours with Ophorus, and Marion and Marian were excellent guides and excellent drivers. Good itineraries, and they travel in minivans only and depart with a minimum of two ; a real bonus. Not cheap, but good value

Ophorus Tours caters for English speakers, and accordingly you will not experience 10 minutes of French being then translated into 2 minutes of English! Further, each excursion is in a modern air conditioned van with a maximum of 8 passengers. On our 5 days there were either 4 or 6 passengers. The first leg involved two days at Bordeaux wineries....

In September we booked two full days tours with Ophorus, along with a half day tour to Domme. The day trip the St Cirq La Popie went very well, and our guide Marion F. was smart and personable and answered all our questions. But on that trip, driving time is about 3.5 hours of an 8 hour day, so about... More

We had no car while staying in Sarlat, but even if we had, it would be unlikely we would have seen all the sights our guide Marion drove us to in one day. The distances we covered were long, sometimes windy & very rural, so really needed to know the best route to squeeze in all the highlights. We would... More

For six days we had the company of our friendly, helpful and delightful guide, Stephanie. During that time we toured the Dordogne region, enjoying fantastic castles, amazing markets, beautiful scenery, delicious food and non stop information from our lovely Stephanie who did her best to take us to places we really wanted to see. All the tours with Ophorus are... More

I was a solo traveller in this area and I don't like driving especially in foreign countries. I did my research and found that in order to explore the Dordogne I would need to do it with a tour company and was happy to have found Ophorus Tours. I did three tours with them which were great and we covered... More

My wife and I stayed in Sarlat for four days, two of which we spent with Ophorus Tours. We did a half day and a full day tour and both were great and the price is reasonable. Ophorus Tours in Sarlat have a maximum of 8 people per tour I believe, and this creates a more personalised experience. Our guide,... More

We were able to learn about the pre-history of the region visiting the Pre-History museum, Lascaux 2, and the Grotte de Rouffignac all in one day! It was very easy and convenient to be picked up and driven through the beautiful country side to these fascinating sights. We didn't find our way, work out the timing, or wait in line... More

As someone who was staying in Sarlat without their own transport, I found the half-day Beynac tour a great way to see the Dordogne countryside, and the attractions close by. Had I known it was possible to pay at the Office de Tourisme beforehand, I think that would have been a simpler option than withdrawing cash on the day, as... More
