If you speak English or German or French ask for the guide from India. This tour is so much more about limestone than mushrooms. Bourre is where most all the castles got their start with miles and miles of limestone tunnels with some amazing history....More

Set up so you learn about how the stones were cut out for the chateaux, how mushrooms are produced, and beautiful carvings. Tour was in French. My husband took high school French 20 years ago and understood most of it without needing me to translate.

It is an unusual and interesting visit: both for the part on mushrooms, and for the heritage project of the "underground city". Our guide was great and very engaging.

We are an Australian family of four with two kids (10 and 12). As a break from the castles we went to visit the underground mushroom caves. What a mistake! We paid 39 Euros for the not-quite-one-hour tour which "included" a tour of the "underground...More

There is history here and great art as well. These caves are what was left when the quarrying of stone for the surrounding chateaus petered out. France was the first cultivator of mushrooms during Louis IV's reign so I thought it would be interesting to...More
