France: Dorgone Region independent travel

Jump to last reply

I read about a tour in UK newspaper to Dordogne region (beginning in Sarlat-la-Canéda and am interested in sightseeing in some of the towns mentioned. I would be traveling solo and without a car. Is it easy to tour Dordogne by public transportation. I would have considered taking the escorted tour but they add a huge supplement for solo travel. I have never had a problem using public transportation and visited a lot of Europe and found that it costs so much less and can enjoy much more freedom and more time in places of interest. I could get flight into Toulouse if that would be the most convenient entry point. Any suggestions on areas where there is good bus/train transportation and the most scenic places. I would take local day tours to some of the places hard to reach by bus. I am active, do lots of walking and visit historic sites and museums and I always look for walking tours in towns organized by the tourist offices.

Thanks for any good help available.
