We (5 adults) arranged a private guided tour with Melissa. She picked us up right on time at our vacation rental house. It was clear that Melissa has a deep knowledge of the Lot region and that she is an experienced professional guide. She was warm, fun,and friendly, and had numerous stories about the sites and villages we visited. Melissa made sure we totally enjoyed our day and we would highly recommend taking a tour with her. Melissa was a pleasure, and one of the reasons we had a great trip.

we visited only one Rass winery, and in the review it was announced that we would visit 3 wineries. I do not like this. It made a bad impression on me that when we arrived at the Rass winery we were greeted with the finding that they had already closed for tourists today, but as a compromise they would take the trouble to open for us.
