We organize guided walk tours for existing small groups, like group of friends, relatives, business partners, etc ...Most of the time group size ranges from 4 to 8 people and more, but if you are just a very few, we can provide you with a professional guide too : anyway ask us for a quote as price depends of course on the number of people in your party. For most of tours, we can also adapt the duration to your needs.

Ask us for a date that suits to your group (refer to each tour to check the range of dates possible).

Here below is an example of such a tour (the 8 days, 7 nights, 6 walking days trip as exemple):

Beautiful scenery and superb trails and narrow paths will be your daily bread... Here, every step takes you to a visible trace of human history : you will follow pilgrimage routes drawn during the 12th centuries, discover centuries old stone-built houses but also castles from the Middle Ages and even monuments from the prehistoric times

Shepherds' stone huts, that locals call "Cazelles" , are usually circular in shape with a conical roof of flat stones. They have been built from ancient times, more then 3000 years ago.

 

 A splendid pilgrimage route will lead you through a canyon to Rocamadour surprising site, filled up with historical tales.
