    La subida a la duna de Pilat se me hizo dura....Pero las vistas eran magníficas. El pueblecito de las ostras tenía bastante encanto....

    A parte la degustazione di ostriche, che riguarda il gusto personale e può anche essere sostituita dalle "moules frites", il tour in barca con ulteriore esplorazione della duna va fatto almeno una volta nella vita. Il luogo è, direi, unico per la collocazione geografica al centro dell'Europa Occidentale e per la gradevole temperatura, anche in questa Estate malefica!

    It was a very nice tour I have had with Galaad, one of the talented guides of Alafrancaise. At first we went to the Pilat Sand dune. TAt the top, we had the beautiful view from the Dune (cap ferret, arcachon..). Galaad was a friendly guide and we learned a lot of things about the story of the Dunes, of Arcachon and oysters breedings.. The glass of white wine at the top of the Dune was also a nice part. I enjoyed my time there.

    Una riserva naturale spettacolare. Una duna desertica tra foresta e mare. Un altro miracolo della natura. Da non perdere se si visita Bordeaux. Molto interessante anche Arcachon, con la sua atmosfera Liberty da belle époque.

    It was a pleasant day out. The guide was friendly. I enjoyed climbing the dune and the oyster tasting. However, I found this activity overcharged (€69) for what it offers. They drive you to the Pyla Dune, you have 20 mins on the top and then drive you to the oyster farms where you get half dozen of number 5 oyster and a glass of wine. If you want more oyster you pay for it. You don't get to visit the farm itself or learn about it. You just go, eat and then leave in a rush. I think that this is an activity for people who have a very short time in Bordeaux. If you have enough time you can go to the Pyla dune by train and spend more time there. At Chez Jean Mi in the market Marche des Capucins in Bordeaux you can eat same quality oysters and seafood with glass of wine for lower price.

    En petit groupe nous nous sommes rendus à la Dune de Pilat. Quelle vue merveilleuse du haut de la dune. Nous avons monté par les escaliers (mon conjoint ayant un orteil cassé). Par contre la descente fût par la dune et quelle bonne décision de l'avoir fait ainsi. Par la suite nous sommes allés dans un endroit pour manger des huîtres ou pour les autres qui n'en mangent pas, des paws (grosse crevettes qui venaient de la Martinique ou Guadeloupe). J'ai mangé du pain car je ne peux manger de crustacés. Malheureusement j'aurais aimé qu'il y ait quelque chose d'autre mais ce n'est pas grave, le vin était bon :). Très agréable comme journée (de canicule).

    Ottima esperienza. Guida simpatica e competente. Eravamo quattro coppie di nazionalità diversa,noi italiani,tedeschi,rumeni e canadesi.A sorpresa Quentin ,guida e driver dell'escursione,dal suo.zaino magico ha estratto contenitore con caffè,latte e croissant.Piccole cortesie di grande stile.Trasporto su Van nuovissimo ,aria condizionata e interni in pelle. Le Dune di Pilat sono uno spettacolo,separano il mare da una foresta di pini.Molto suggestivo il porticciolo in cui abbiamo degustato ostriche e vino bianco. Esperienza e tour da consigliare. Imperdibile per chi visita e soggiorna a Bordeaux !

    The excursion was excellent. Our guide, Vincent, provided thorough and interesting background information on the region. He took us to Le Pilat, the largest sand dune in Europe. He brought coffee for us and was helpful throughout the tour. The highlight for me was the opportunity to taste the Arcachon oysters.....the best in the world!!!

    Thrilling walk up and across dunes with magnificent views. Host was both informative and charming. Topped off with wonderful oysters and prawns.
