This was a fantastic day with our guide, David. We loved the diversity of activities from our hike in the Cirque de Moureze, to lunch on the shore of Lac Salagou, from the amazing views (and David’s excellent storytelling!) at Pont Diable to the historical relics in the Abbey Museum at St. Guilhem le Désert. Throughout the day, David was an enthusiastic host, patiently enduring our attempts at conversing in our beginner French and adding extra details to our day that made it an entertaining and absorbing look at the Herault region. Merci beaucoup, David!
