Guide was great, spoke good English. Recommend itinerary improved. Long drive due to traffic jam, visit to sand dune good, but disappointed as we saw little of Arcachon. Went to observation point for 3 minutes, drove through suburbs to oyster lunch. Oyster/shrimp lunch, bread, pate, glass of wine enjoyable in pretty fishing area. After lunch drove back to Bordeaux.

A fantastic day to the dunes and Arcachon. Dorian was a wonderful guide. The small group made opportunités to talk to others very easy. Lunch was wonderful as well. Dorian shared lots of information about the area and other places to visit in France. Highly recommend this tour.
Great tour.
