From beginning to end we had a wonderful experience. Stephane was very responsive to my many questions when I was setting up this expedition for our family group of 10 ranging from age 6 to 82. We opted for the 3-hour tour so the younger ones would not be confined too long and we would get to taste oysters at... More

It is Europe's tallest sand dune. The town is a favourite holiday spot for the popuilation of Bordeaux and there is a wide range of excellent... More
