Tour # 1 : INSIDE THE VOLCANO

Francis

Loin de la frénésie costazurienne, avec en plus les explications d'un spécialiste. C'est extra !

EloĂŻse

Nous avons découvert un lieu magnifique que nous n’aurions jamais soupçonné si proche de Nice. Notre guide Julien, en grand passionné, nous a partagé son savoir sur la géologie. Très belle excursion !!

Christophe

Super! Notre groupe a passé une journée extraordinaire et nous avons découvert des choses que nous n'aurions jamais imaginé sur la géographie locale (et pas que). Les explications de Julien sont claires, précises et à la portée de tous. Il arrive à transmettre sa passion pour la géologie en générale, mais surtout pour la nature et sa préservation. Si j'avais bénéficié d'un tel guide pendant mon adolescence, j'aurai certainement fait d'autres choix d'études. Je recommande donc fortement!!!

Visite avec un couple d'amis, mélange français et anglais. Nous avons tout appris sur le volcan de la Maure Vieille, c'était très intéressant, agréable, et parfois même ludique. J'ai appris plein de choses au milieu de paysages superbes. Vivement le prochain tour!

We did a tour with a couple of friends (English and French speaking). We did the volcano tour, it was very interesting, but also fun. I did learn a lot and the scenery was beautiful. I'm looking forward to our next trip!

VAN ZURK

Très belle journée passée dans un lieu si proche de la ville et pourtant totalement inattendu. Lieu secret, imprévisible et surprenant que notre guide Julien nous a montré, raconté. Que de découvertes avons nous fait en voyageant dans le temps. De beaux et riches échanges ont agrémenté cette journée.
A ne pas manquer.
