This tour is excellent when you are reasonably young and physically fit. It is far more tiring than advertised, and with an extra walking from the parking lot to the site (instead of taking the shuttle because the huge queue frightened us off) we walked during the day 9.3 kilometers and climbed the equivalent of 27 floors, which over 78 (as we both are) was quite a challenge. We also could not do the bay walk, because there was nothing, not a chair or a bench to sit on for taking off our shoes for the walk, which we cannot do standing or sitting on the floor. The idea of taking the TGV+dedicated bus is excellent, the best way to do the tour from Paris in one day and have enough time for the activities. The others in the group who did the bay walk found it a bit too long and very tiring. Our guide Camille was nice and helpful.

How should I dress for this tour?
We recommend wearing comfortable walking shoes as this tour involves stairs and walking on uneven ground. We also recommend bringing a towel or tissues to dry yourself after the bay walk. During the bay walk, you will be required to take off your shoes and get your feet wet. Although the water will never go past your ankles, you should still wear clothes that you don't mind getting wet/sandy.
