Our guide Marion was informative and personable. The half day tour was an excellent way to see Rocamadour from Sarlat. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ophorous tours to others. We booked on-line from Australia and the communication was prompt, personal and trouble free.

Our Orphus Sarlat Day Tour to Lascaux II and Ruffinac prehistoric caves was a real highlight of our trip around France. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and added greatly to our experience. Highly recommended.

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...More

Hello, We have two children (8 and 6) and are after a guide who can make things interesting for them. So, less about the dry history and the dates, and more about the people and the what they did and how they lived. Are your guides able to do so? Thank you, Matt

Dear Matt, Yes our guides can adapt to children but this is possible only on a private tour and not on a shared tour. Kind regards, Christophe
