What you'll do

Meeting at the Saint Michael's gate, main entrance of the Lourdes sanctuaries, by the river, for a walking tour (1 or 2km/1 miles with visits of the 4 basilicas, and at the grotto according to the crowd and masses -as the Lourdes rush hours are from 9am to 9pm-, at the drinking fountains to take water or wash, and bath if you want, at 9am or 2pm, and from April to September in the silent and praying Sacred Heart).

And whether you feel it with the weather, we can also go to the circular way of the cross, outside the sanctuaries, at the foot of the Beout mount (30min light climbing walk, and at the 3rd station, there's a replica of the Rome Scala Santa, the world most famous stairs, of 28 steps, which some pilgrims climb on their knees, at Rome Saint John of the Lateran, then going down back at the sanctuaries, on the Rosary place), and even on some locations where Bernadette lived, as she made famous the current religious Lourdes, thanks to her Apparitions of Mary, Jesus mother, to her, at the Massabielle grotto.

I really really enjoyed my tour. I had already been in Lourdes for 2 days prior to the tour so had already seen a lot of the sites. Aurelien though told me lots of interesting facts that I wouldn't have otherwise known. Also he showed me the things which I hadn't seen yet that were a little off the beaten track. He personalised my tour and I am very grateful. I totally recommend

Very nice hosts, specially Aurelien with whom we communicated during our tour. He's very polite, he was very patient with us and adapted to our needs and timing, we never felt like we were in a rush like in other tours.

Très belle rencontre avec Aurélien qui connaît parfaitement Lourdes et ses trésors et qui a grand plaisir à partager toutes sortes de détails sur l'histoire de la ville et de Bernadette. Il fait preuve de vastes connaissances également sur des sujets parallèles fort intéressants. Il s'adapte et répond avec gentillesse aux besoins de son audience. Il est organisé, très réactif et communicatif. J'étais fatiguée et en retard et il a tout fait pour m'arranger et me donner la meilleure expérience possible. Bravo à Aurélien qui mérite bien ses 5 étoiles!

I enjoyed and learned from my time with Aurelien. I am glad that he was flexible about the sequence of the activities. I learned a lot about life in Lourdes and appreciated his insights on the Catholic faith as expressed here in Lourdes. He also took time out to help me with other things in Lourdes. Merci, Aurelien. See you again.
