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

We had 2 Tours-Half-day Rocamadour Tour and and All Dordogne in a Day Tour and enjoyed it 120 percent. It was great way for us to look around the region as both of us don't drive. Anne-Lise, our guide, was very knowledgeable and kind. You never gets bored with her as she keeps telling us interesting history and fun facts... More

An excellent day, made doubly so by our guide Anne-Lise who not only has exccellent English language skills but is passionate about Prehistory and well informed. Her background information given in the bus before each site and her conviction about the importance of what we were seeing made the trip memorable. She showed interest in her guests backgrounds and interests... More

We booked our tour through France a la Carte, from Australia, and at first thought it was expensive but turned out to be worth every penny. Marion F. of Ophorus was our wonderful driver/guide. She speaks excellent English and is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the history of the area - from prehistory to the present. In most places we... More
