She picked us up at our hotel in Lourdes and drove us to the Cirque de Garvarnie where we hiked, had a picnic, and took many pictures. This was... More

The thought of trying to see all of the important aspects of the Lourdes pilgrimage site was overwhelming to us so we were very happy to discover Detours Pyreneens and that they had a tour available for the short time (half day) that we had available to visit the Sanctuary. We were even more happy with the guide who met... More

Our walking tour with our guide, Marion, was wonderful! She was very knowledgeable about the life of St. Bernadette, Marian apparitions, architecture etc. we toured all of the key areas relating to St. Bernadette's life, churches, Grotto, Stations of the Cross & took her recommendation to come back midday to avoid the larger crowds. Fantastic day!

We took my 89 year old mom to see Lourdes. She had gone to Our Lady of Lourdes school as a young girl and married in a parish called the same. Her parish for over 40 years has been St Bernadettes. This trip was made easy and interesting by Veronique. She was an excellent guide! I highly recommend her.

Veronique was a wonderful tour guide. She picked us up at our hotel in Lourdes and we drove to Gavarnie. She customized the day for us and we were able to spend most of it hiking and exploring. Veronique is passionate about the Pyrenese and we fell in love with the beauty of Gavarnie. She shared the history and culture... More

I went to Lourdes with my mom and my sister (I choose family with teenagers for the type of visit because no other option that describe with whom I was travelling 😄 ). We booked a tour to Pic du Midi but as the weather was bad, Veronique suggested to change to Basque Country which also has beautiful sceneries. Veronique... More
