Walking in the Dordogne Tour Review

Walk towards Dome, Dordogne |  <i>Virginia Wingett</i>

"This was an excellent trip. The trip notes were excellent, the accommodation of a high standard and the included meals were great value. We enjoyed a generous sampling of the local food and produce, as well as the local wines. The Dordogne is a very picturesque, historic and interesting area to visit."

In Van Gogh's Footsteps Tour Reviews

Alpilles mountains in Southern France

 

"In Provence, the walks were most enjoyable and manageable. LOVED Baux de Provence and La Reina Jeanne. Also Carrieres de Lumieres was sensational. The supplied material was excellent: informative, detailed, clearly presented, good maps and in a bound copy. The notes were dependable and distances clearly stated. Restaurant suggestions were a real help, leading us to some fantastic food..particularly at Reina Jeanne and in Avignon at le jardin de Carmes. Brilliant. Many thanks."

G.White | Mt Eliza, Australia

"We enjoyed our walk very much. The accommodation was perfect, food fantastic. Staying overnight meant we were able to wander around without the pressure of time. Avignon and St Remy were terrific, as were Les Baux and Arles. It was wonderful seeing all the places Van Gogh had painted."
