Like the other reviews, I found Antoine an excellent, personable and knowledgeable guide. my 7 friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the Cathar castles he took us to (amazing views after some serious walks up) I must also say that his driving was excellent - given the really winding roads between villages. Once he knew that a couple of our party were not good at the back of a van, he took alternate routes for comfort sake.

A highlight was lunch at Les Maitres de mon Moulin, a superb bakery in Cucugnan, and having it's award winning baker Roland Feuillas wax lyrical about his passion for real bread. Thanks for the intro Antoine.

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.

Our decision not to rent a car to avoid driving unfamiliar roads proved to be a very wise decision. We hired the services of Sun Tour and had Antoine, our tour guide, tailor the visits to our interests. We booked three different excursion visiting Cathares Castles, Abbeys, a Fishing Village, and wine tasting. Antoine had a deep knowledge of the region, its history and culture. His calmness and easy going personality allowed us to learn and enjoy our visits.
Antoine's native language is French and he is also fluently in English, Italian and Spanish. He is dependable and drive very safely. We highly recomend Antoine of Sun Tour.

Antoine organized an itinerary perfectly suited to our available time and our interests in the Cathars and the Castles. He adapted the order of our programme to make the best of the weather. Along the way we learned a lot a out the area and its history. It was great to have the services of such a professional (and English speaking) guide. We usually make our own way when travelling but in this case really appreciated being with someone who knew the roads well and fitted a lot into the day.
We had a great day and Antoine dropped us at the station in perfect time for our train.

Antoine did a fantastic job guiding my family on a tour of Carcassonne. My 80-yr old Dad, 9-yr old daughter, and 4-yr old son all have very different ideas of fun, but Antoine managed to keep us all entertained. He adjusted the tour to accommodate the limited mobility of my father without making Dad feel like he was missing anything, and when Dad wanted to hear about the history from the city tour guide, Antoine took the kids to overlooks of the city and told them fun stories. When the children needed water and a bathroom Antoine got them water and took them to the restroom while Dad and I learned more about the walled city.

After the tour Antoine sat with us and outline several key places to visit, all of which we ultimately saw and agreed were wonderful. He obviously loves the area and is proud of its heritage, and his infectious enthusiasm left us all feeling incredibly lucky to have shared such a beautiful part of the world.

I'd recommend Sun Tour and Antoine to anyone visiting the region.
