  • Fascinating grotto but had to listen to a 45-minute tour from a guide who sounded like she was reading her masters thesis. Monotone (with a mask on), lack of dynamism, no attempt to explain in terms.....  more »
  • The cave is interesting however the tour is only done in french, which you aren't told until you have paid and are inside.  more »

  • Guided tour to one of the oldest inhabited sites in France.
  • I was able to visit the grotto in Rocamadour. Unfortunately, no pictures are allowed as they said it wears away at the 20,000-year-old paintings that are on the wall. The grotto was very small but magical, nonetheless. The guide was enthusiastic to explain in French (it’s a good thing I understand a bit) but not so enthusiastic to translate for the English-speaking German tourist present (“I will only translate the main points, I don’t have time to tell you everything,”) and she got quite annoyed with me when I tried to whisper a little explanation to help the tourist out in understanding. Ah, the French. You have to laugh. The grotto requires a bit of imagination, as the shapes they see with the paint are… curious, to say the least. But it’s still cool to think that man was here that long ago and wanted to leave messages to those who came afterward. Worth the money? Yes. Better grottos close by? Yes.
