    We visited wonderful ancient cities in the south of France. Our guide was very knowledgeable, helpful, and personable. The local guides were superb, the dining and wine were top notch.

    We saw some of the most exquisite places in France, enjoyed delicious foods and wines, and were treated like kings and queens everywhere we went and stayed. Culture, history and epicurean delights!

    Packed way too much in one day in Dordogne Valley; no time to even eat lunch; day way too long. The next day we only had one event. Carcassone tour of castle too long; up & down & around & not that interesting. Toulouse was our favorite spot; city alive & loved exploring in on our own.

    Lots of medieval towns and beautiful vistas. Visits to Saint Antonin Noble Val, Carcassonne, and Pont due Gard were outstanding. Could have skipped the laser light show to have had more time on the ruins of Chateau Des Baux. Going to the top of the Eifel Tower and Chef Joe's performance in Avignon were truly highlights!

    Staying in the walled city of Carcassonne, walking on the city walls, and the view from our room.
