I took 2 day tours with Anne lise who was full of knowledge about the area and the caves. Our group each day had 3 to 4 people which made the tour very personal. The van was comfortable and we went on the back roads and saw the beautful countryside. The tours made my visit to the area a memorable one. I did the pech Merle and st cirq tour and the lascoux and rouffiniac caves tours. Ophorus does a great job from start to finish.

We had a great day on this tour. We chose to take a tour as we were on a tight schedule and only had one full day in Sarlat.
The town has a very pretty medievil section which is quite large with lots of shops and restaurants. A good base for viewing the local caves, and other dordogne activities.
We were lucky enough to be the only couple to book the tour on the day we travelled and so we had a private guided tour. The guide was pleasant, friendly and very knowledgeable. We do not speak much French but her English language skills were perfect.
With only a day we were able to fit in visits to LAscaux II and Rouffignac, the museum and a great lunch at a cafe by the river. We could have done all this on our own but it would have taken at least two days. Best of all, though, the guide was able to bring a much richer experience and understanding than we would have had on our own. Overall, a great experience!

Where can you combine spectacular viewpoints over a castle-studded landscape, a boat ride taking in hundreds of years of history while you glide past stunning castles and fortresses, and then actually visit a half dozen of these same castles all in the span of four hours?

Why, the Dordogne of course!

The tour was superbly planned, departing the must-visit town of Sarlat-la-Caneda for our first stop, Domme, followed by a trip to what has to be one of Dordogne's star attractions - the village of La Roque Gageac, then All Aboard! an authentic river boat for a placid cruise down the Dordogne river floating past towering castles, and topped off by a visit to several of these same historic castles where the rich tapestry of Dordogne history played out over centuries.

Our English speaking guide was charming and knowledgeable, pointing out little tidbits of information which we would otherwise have never found in a guidebook. Her personal perspective was indeed valuable, and rounded of what already was a superlative tour.

My friend and I went on two tours with the Ophorus tour company in the month of July. Both were amazing. Our tour guide was very accommodating and personable and it felt more like a private tour. I would definitely recommend Ophorus to others!

We have just finished three one day and one half day tours of Sarlat and the Dordogne with Ophorus Tours. What a wonderful experience - small tours ( max 8 people) and really friendly and experienced English speaking guides. The sights of the Dordogne came to life with Anne Lise and then Marion - our two guides for separate tours. Well recommended.
