    • Day trips from Ajaccio

      Corsica May 11, 2015 at 2:42 PM

      I will be in Ajaccio on 10, 11 and 12 June. I had planned to do day trips with Authentic Tours after reading rave reviews, but they are already booked out and my only hope is a cancellation. Most disappointing. Can anyone suggest another reliable company to take me on day trips? Is it possible to hire a private (safe) driver? I definitely want to go to Bonifacio, and was also considering Corte, and Piana and Scandola, but I'm open to suggestion. I don't want to drive myself. If I leave things until my arrival and just go to the tourist bureau, I'm worried I might miss out altogether. I'm happy to do train and boat trips too, as long as they are day trips from Ajaccio. Looking forward to hearing your suggestions.

      We are thinking of visiting Paris and make trips from Paris to Mauleon-Licharre. My mother-in-law is coming on this trip and we are trying to search for the Tellagorry family history (that is her ancestors)which we believe is from Mauleon-Licharre. She is 70 years old so travelling comfortably from Paris to Pau is important. I figure Pau must be the first stop from Paris either flying or by train before we can go to Mauleon-Licharre. Any suggestion would be very appreciated.

      We could get to London by bus or train and ferry and transfer from there if necessary.If this looks impossible we will try planes but it looks as though this may involve flying Dun=blin or Belfast to Stansted and then Ryanair to Pau airport.
