Tour Society Roquefort was just average. Too long and English handout didn't match tour. Tasting was excellent, though!

A must if you are in the are - a very comprehensive tour with translations provided in English. All aspects of making the cheese and storing it were expertly explained. Not a great Roquefort fan but the tasting at the end of the tour opened my eyes to other types of Roquefort.

and even if you don't this is a fascinating place to spend a damp afternoon. The manufacture and distribution of this unique cheese is very well explained, regrettably only in French but a printed translation is freely available and very well put together.

Not worth the money for international visitors.

You are given a sheet with the commentrary on it and you follow the group around and try to keep up.

only go if you're SUPER keen on smelly cheeses!

Having a passable degree of everyday French, we have discovered in the past that we have struggled a little through other types of tours , so although the other caves are free, we decided to embark on this tour because ot was reputed to have an English guide. Considering we paid the same for the tour as fluent French speakers, we didn't feel we enjoyed the same level of service as they did on the tour. We, and other foreign speakers were presented with 2 A4 typed sheets describing the tour - and that really amounted to the extent of the guide - leaving us trailing in the wake of the French speakers.
