Antoinne of Sun Tour took us on a wonderful day-long excursion through the district around Carcassonne, mainly (I think?) in the nearby Black Mountains. The castles at Lastours and Saissac were really impressive, and we got a good workout at the former, where a lot of clambering (or at least stair-climbing) was involved. It was very hot, but Antoinne organized the day so that we would avoid the worst of the sun and heat. He gave us a lot of useful information about the history of the sites we were visiting, and also about the district's more recent history and contemporary goings-on. This was the first time either of us had gone on a guided excursion, but we wanted to get the most of our visit to Carcassonne and the Aude, and are very glad that we signed up with Sun Tour. It was a bit pricey for two of us to have a full-day tour, but it was ultimately worth the expense, and we would recommend it even to travellers on a modest budget.
