James McDonald has long had a special interest in the heretical traditions of the Languedoc and has lived in the region since 199. He is a master of making complex subjects accessible and memorable and communicates his love of the subject with erudition, eloquence and humour. We use our grass roots knowledge to ensure that our clients get a really authentic taste of the best that this magnificent region has to offer, carefully choosing family run restaurants and hotels and planning to allow for pretty routes and sufficient rest time.
The tours are conceived with a view to keeping driving time to a minimum and giving participants a really authentic taste of the best that is on offer in the region today as well as an authentic and highly informative guide to its history.
