    We loved Estefan! Knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. We thought it was good value for money, and loved 3/4 stops. The lunch stop in Honorarriba, could have been skipped. It wasn’t very good in my opinion. Really enjoyed it overall.

  • From Bordeaux: Arcachon Bay Morning Tour

    2. From Bordeaux: Arcachon Bay Morning Tour

    Depart Bordeaux at 8:30 AM and take a 50-minutes drive to the majestic Dune of Pilat at Pyla-sur-Mer in Arcachon Bay. Climb the highest sand dune in Europe for a panoramic view (known locally as the “Bassin”) of an inland sea open to the Atlantic Ocean. Marvel at the splendid colors of the lagoon, and take in the views of the Landes Forest from the summit. Famous for its oysters, Arcachon Bay is known for its mild climate and exceptional natural beauty. Enjoy a tasting session of some fresh oysters served with a glass of white wine from a local producer of the “Bassin.” Drive back to Bordeaux and get dropped off in the city center at approximately 1:00 PM.

    Very friendly guide, the transfer from Bordeaux to Arcachon and back was well-organized. The Dune de Pyla is a memorable landmark: If you like the ocean, it’s well worth the visit. Service at the included oyster tasting was prompt, with both seafood and wine fulfilling high expectations.

Fantastic, Quentin was a delight.

This was an information and action packed highlight of our trip. Quentin was entertaining and gave us a wonderful history of the Bordeaux , Arcachon sand dunes and oyster leases, as well as visits to two wonderful Chateaux in Margaux and Medoc. His bright and positive personality melded our group of Australians, Canadians, Italians, and yanks perfectly. It was a magic day.

Great fun with a great guide, thanks Hugo.

This was a fun morning with Hugo travelling to a beautiful location and enjoying a tasty treat of prawns, as the option to oysters. Climbing the sand dune was great and it was a magnificent day to see the Atlantic and Arcachon Bay. We traveled with 3 others which made it very personal and everyone was able to have a chat.

It was interesting tour, but from our view you are covering too many cities and there are not much time to see each city. I thing Should be more time for Biarittz and San Sebastian. Hondariba and Saint De Luz can be excluded from the tour. Also big thanks to guide, he was very helpfull.

Beautiful day! A special experience that everyone should do... Everything is Perfect thanks to our guide Hugo :) I would do it thousand times. Greetings from Calabria
