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.

The ease of transportation was the main attraction of the tour. We were driven directly to the dune and didn’t have to worry at all about orienting ourselves. Our guide Hugo was friendly and took care of the group. He also brought along coffee and pastries for our enjoyment on the dune. The dune was gorgeous and we were there at the perfect time - warm sunny and gently breezy. I would’ve love to spend more time there. Although a little pricey, this tour saves you time and nerves from dealing with transportation.

Excellent tours

We had 2 different tours with this company oyster tour and wine tasting and both was great. Guides was very knowledgeable, and was really interesting conversations. I like that there is small touches that make these trips really fantastic, for example: drinking glass of wine on Dune was such a great idea. Thank You. We will definitely go more with You, when come back.
