  • Visit with friends who like us were disappointed while we had brought them to Cougnac near Martel. Prefer Cougnac and Pech Merle to Cabrerets (Lot).

  • Enticing on the website but disappointed as soon as you walk down the steps! I've already visited caves but then there... Visit in two groups, one ..."Interpretations" of the few paintings (supposed inspirations of the man of Cro magnon) and the other visit of the one and only room Artificial Constructions, (stair basins), forbidden photos Hat down for the guide who managed to "furnish" the 45 minutes

  • Guided tour to one of the oldest inhabited sites in France.
  • I was able to visit the grotto in Rocamadour. Unfortunately, no pictures are allowed as they said it wears away at the 20,000-year-old paintings that are on the wall. The grotto was very small but magical, nonetheless. The guide was enthusiastic to explain in French (it’s a good thing I understand a bit) but not so enthusiastic to translate for the English-speaking German tourist present (“I will only translate the main points, I don’t have time to tell you everything,”) and she got quite annoyed with me when I tried to whisper a little explanation to help the tourist out in understanding. Ah, the French. You have to laugh. The grotto requires a bit of imagination, as the shapes they see with the paint are… curious, to say the least. But it’s still cool to think that man was here that long ago and wanted to leave messages to those who came afterward. Worth the money? Yes. Better grottos close by? Yes.
