Veronique was knowledgeable and charming. My husband walks fast and I am a slower walker and she accommodated me completely! All the questions we had Veronique answered perfectly. We had gotten off the train and met Veronique 45 minutes later. Veronique had another tour that morning (ours was mid afternoon ) and she was still very exuberant for our 3 hour tour. Was glad we booked the tour first so we got an understanding of Lourdes for the following day. There were so many positives about her and we were so very, very pleased!! Loved the 9pm candlelight procession. It shouldn’t be missed. Would highly recommend her!! Nancy wrote this review.

Susan ,our guide was very knowledgeable . She patiently answered our questions . Provided not only the history behind the place but current news about it also . This is the reason why we prefer to take guided tours . Take It in the morning so you will have free time on your own in the afternoon for the baths and to visit the other churches

Very good!

This is a very good way to tour Lourdes. We saw places that we would never have seen had we not had the guide. And we learned information we would never have learned without the guide. I would recommend this to everybody visiting Lourdes. Our guide was very patient and in no hurry.

Wonderful tour! Susan did an amazing job. We learned so much from her. We would recommend taking this tour on the first visit to Lourdes. It's different when every detail is explained.

Our tour guide was an expert. She thoughtfully explained everything. We learned do much in such an enjoyable way! Thank you!
