Nice visit. Small tasting on the beach of the famous white dunes, kinds of local chouquettes, very famous. Then walk to the oyster farming huts. We received explanations on oysters and farming. Then we went to the 44 hectare district. At the end of the visit, we stopped at the Roux cabin to taste oysters and large prawns with a glass of wine. The guide Alain is at the top. He tells well and is varied in his anecdotes. I recommend this excursion.

We had a great time, Alain made us discover places that we could not have discovered by ourselves. Everything was perfect, the visit and the tasting of regional products. To do and redo without hesitation!

C’était génial! Alain est un excellent guide. L’expérience est parfaite pour découvrir le cap ferret et apprendre sur les huîtres du bassin

Very nice walk. Discovery of 2 small authentic ports to finish with an oyster tasting. To recommend.
