We went with Antoine on a half day trip to the Lastours castles in early June, and it was very enjoyable. He speaks English very well, and is very knowledgeable about the history and culture of the area. Be aware that there is a rugged uphill path to reach the castles, and you need to have some good shoes and be in reasonably good condition. Antoine does not accompany you on the actual hike to the castles, but provides a window of time and an arranged meeting point for pickup. After visiting the castles, he took us on an additional drive to an overlook with a very panoramic view of the castles and their surroundings, and then on a very scenic drive on a different way back into Carcassonne. This really gave us a chance to see some of the surrounding countryside without the hassles of car rental, driving, and parking. The transport van was very nice and comfortable, and in great condition.
