Great tour led by a fanatastic guide. the sand dune was Very impressive and the glass of wine at the top of the dune was a great idea! After that we went to a local oyster village where we enjoyed the oysters with a glass of wine.
The guide was professional, and we first stop at the sand dunes.
We have a glass of wine on top of the dunes, which was magical.
there after we went directly for the oyster tasting with a glass of wine or prawns.
The oysters were fresh but a bit small. We had greater expectation as they we directly from the farm.
Ann was our tour guide for the morning - we went and climbed the big sand dune and went to a local oyster village. Ann was a FABULOUS guide, very relaxed and kind and the small group tour format is great. If you have 4-5 days in Bordeaux, its a great tour for something a little different aside from 100 wine tasting!
I highly recommend this tour. The dune was an unusual and fun point of interest during my stay in Bordeaux. The view at the top was spectacular. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable. And the oysters were really delicious!!!
The dune itself is really cool but we only got about 20 minutes up top before going to the oyster tasting. The oyster bay was quite different then I thought, it was low tide or as I was calling it no tide. The bay was just boats sitting in mud, the oysters were kind of warm and it was summer which is not the best season for oysters. They all had egg sacks which were creamy and just ok tasting. Most of this trip is spent driving since Arcachon Bay is about 1.5 hours from Bordeaux. It was an ok trip, I would maybe rent my own car next time and go.
A great trip! Who would have guessed a huge sand dune is sitting there on the coast of France, and that Napoleon stopped it from further invading the country by planting forests. Lots of great picture-taking opportunities from the top of the dune. The sand is incredibly fine, making for a fun walk down the dune after taking the stairs up. Our guide was excellent, and even arranged for shrimp tasting for those of us not keen on oysters.
