Spent an interesting day at Lourdes with our guide. There was just the two of us and our guide. Picked us up at an agreed spot, but dropped us back to our hotel. Which was appreciated. Found this company via tripadvisor, they have a small selection of day trips from Toulouse. A guide was casual, and flexible. If we wanted... More

I enjoyed my recent tour of Albi. The cathedral was magnificent and like seeing a museum. I appreciated having a guide who knew details about the church and town and spoke English. She was also kind enough to drop me off at the train station. It was a very positive experience and I would recommend it to anyone!

We had a great time in Carcassonne & Albi. It was rather a headache to find a good English local tour co. while I was planning my trip to Carcassonne. So we wrote to the Tourisme de Toulouse and the Office recommended Ophorus to us. Ophorus gave us quick responses and confirmed us that we could do two tours in... More

I really enjoyed the trip. As a solo traveller I was tossing up whether to hire a car to get to Albi from Toulouse, or try for a day trip by train. Then luckily I found Ophorus when I asked at the Toulouse Tourist centre. It was so good to sit back and enjoy the drive, plus share the experience... More

We took two tours with Ophorus in Toulouse. Both were phenomenal. The first tour was a full day tour of Lourdes. This was one of the highlights of our trip. Pierrick, our tour guide, was absolutely wonderful. He was knowledgeable of all the historic and religious highlights of the area. Lourdes is located in a valley at the base of... More

Our guide Stephanie arrived on time. Five people for the 8 hour tour. We departed Toulouse in a very nice van and traveled to Albi to visit the church, the Letrac museum and a nice walk through the city. Then off to Cordes sur Ciel and then wine tasting in Gaillac. Throughout the day we were afforded insights and side... More

Perfect. Simply perfect. We took the tour 2 days in a row during our stop over in Toulouse. The 1st day to Albi, Cordes and Gaillac in a SUV Mercedes with 2 other couples from Australia, the 2nd day to Carcassone just alone with the same guide Anne. Anne was perfect both in English and French. We recommend Ophorus Toulouse... More

If you just need a driver for the day, book this. We thought we would get a history of the area and a fun and enthusiastic driver, but what we got was merely a van ride and drop off at canned tourist spots. Our driver was knowledgeable, when asked, about the area, but was not offering anything unless we came... More
