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 the desert. 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. Thank you very much, David!

I would definitely recommend this trip. David was super attentive and tailored the pace of the tour to our needs. You can feel that he loves his job. He even brought chairs and a table for our picknick. On top, the sights are lovely and the nature stunning.

Great tour. Tour guide David is wonderful and knowledgeable. Full day. Bring shoes for hiking in Moureze part of tour, your own lunch for picnic and a swim suit if you want to take a quick dip at pont de diablo on way to Saint Gilhem.

Great day, David made us see the wonders of the hinterland. Between small village and nature one can only find happiness there. Go there with your eyes closed.

Amazing trip and very well put together. Guide super knowledgeable and clearly very much passionate about the region. A must do if you have a day to explore.
