Gwen was a wonderful guide. She was able to keep me engaged in the history of Carcassonne, including the history of the areas and how they related to Carcassonne. I would love to hire her for future tours!

We had a wonderful guide who told us a lot about the landscape, the bulls, the horses, the Flamigos and the Camarque. There was a lot to see. In particular, we also saw many birds of the Camarque. insanity
