We chose the Lastours trip because it was easy to get to and only an afternoon. Antoine picked us up from our accommodation, and was very knowledgeable about the region and the Minervois vineyards. He waited for 2 hours while we scrambled up to the 4 Cathar castles. These are ruins but very atmospheric and the views are wonderful. But you do need to be reasonably fit and have firm footwear. He then drives to a viewing point which gives a fantastic view of all 4 castles and you think, did we really go up there?! You could easily do this trip yourself if you have transportation but being without a car this suited us fine and we enjoyed Antoine's company and the tour of the countryside. If we were staying longer, we would have definitely gone on one of his other trips.
