I fully endorse all the positive comments below. We booked the half day trip to Caunes Minervois and Cabrespine. Antoine was charming, humorous and relaxed, and spoke perfect English (and is also fluent in Spanish). As he uses minibuses the trip numbers are always going to be small, and we were lucky enough to be just the two of us. Antoine let us go at our own pace. He has the happy knack of imparting historical facts and modern political and sociological background in an interesting way, without it ever feeling like a boring ol' history lesson; and then, having pre-fed us the info, he let us wander round the sights on our own. He also made a slight detour to allow us to see (but not climb to - phew) two of the Lastours castles. And when we weren't talking about history and the local area, we were engrossed in chats about football and rock music - truly a delight to have so affable and knowledgeable a guide. Best to pre-book via his website, as he seemed to have got busy by the time we were in Carcassonne.

Having found Antoine on Tripadvisor we booked a couple of tours with him and were so glad that we did. He was great, nothing was too much trouble for him, his knowledge is amazing and he has such a good sense of humour, it was like touring with a friend. We could have booked these tours through our hotel but they were double the price, so check with Antoine first before you book anything through your hotel.

We booked 4 tours with Sun tours run by Antoine who was an exceptional guide, very informative and friendly, he spoke fluent English. We never felt hurried or rushed, he would show us particular things of interest answering our many questions and then let us have enough time to wander by ourselves, he took us to places we would never have gone to, was always on time to pick us up and gave us one of the best tours we've been on mainly because it was just us and therefore were not herded and rushed about as with large tour companies.

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.

Antoine was an amazing tour guild and had so much information on the region. We got restaurant tips while staying in Carcassonne. I would recommend his services to anyone staying in the Carcassonne region. We took 2 of his tours. Michelle
