    Béatrice was a fantastic host, she spoke French very well and was attentive. However, we were a little disappointed with the last fish restaurant. I recommend.

    The GetYourGuide app said 11:00-2:00 but the gal didn’t show up until 11:25. She was nice enough but didn’t know any history. We ate at a place and had fried bread and chickpeas, but they had fried anchovies and fried calamari I would have rather had for sure. We had a nice meal at a high hotel then finally walked to the water. That’s where Most of the tour should be. We left early because the line was too long at the second to the last eating spot. While we were walking back to our car, we saw an incredible fish and cheese market breaking down. I would have LOVED to see that!!!! Next time I’ll go explore on my own rather than spend 160 Euro for fried bread and no historical insight.
