I had the absolute best time on my tour today! Highlight of my trip. Our tour guide who unfortunately I can’t remember how to spell his name but it began with M! Was so lovely and knowledgeable and was happy to answer any questions from the group. I 100% would recommend this tour to anyone it was great and I got some amazing pictures!

You got to see parts of the city that you may not see if you went out on your own and got explanations on many things that only a local would know. Pau was an excellent guide.

Everything was perfect apart from the weather (Sea mist) stopped the helicopter flight.

The guide is perfect, and the activity exceptional, very good day spent

We enjoyed it a lot and we would highly recommend it to everyone!
