We will be staying either in Sarlat, Beynac or La Roque Gageac for 3 days in early Oct. of 2012. Tried to reserve a tour for Font de Gaume via email and was told they are already full and we would need to show up the day of and see if they have any spots left. My questions:
Does anyone know the odds of 2 of us getting a walk-on spot on a tour of Font de Gaume for that time of year?
Can you reserve in advance for Lascaux 2? If so, how?
We'd really like to see an authentic cave - what are some other recommendations for the vicinity and can you reserve a tour for them ahead of time?
We've seen some info about Pech Merle - how far is that from Sarlat (or Beynac or La Roque) and is it worth a visit?
Complicating matters - my spouse has somewhat limited mobility -- so walking/climbing long distances is difficult (although not impossible with a walking stick and small portable stool.)
Thanks for any help - we are really disappointed that Font de Gaume may not happen, as it seemed really interesting and just within my spouse's walking ability, so any other alternatives are appreciated!
