  • Time of the site visit (outside = with a cultured and exciting guide could last a little longer, it would have thrilled me!)

  • Visited on 03/08/2017 we booked our tickets in advance (for 4 people), but it was not very useful, there were not so many people in early afternoon. We opted for a rather instructive small train, tour, visit of the volcano was interesting. Our guide "Claude" if my memories are good was pretty fast in his explanations, but could however easily ask questions during stops during the tour. After that we watched the movie in 4 d, very well done, beautiful images that reconstruct the birth of of the Puys, accompanied by beautiful music. However, we were rather disappointed because one of the attractions on offer, "The explosive Mine", was not functioning and thus we have not been able to make. We had not been warned in advance of this problem. Disappointed to not have repayment of the attraction, nothing that a little drink offered at the bar could have been nice, but none of this. To conclude, it is an informative tour, it just hasn't had a chance to make the wrong day!

  • Visit by train very informative with an exciting guide. One big disappointment, we pay 15, 50 euros per person for a visit in a small train + 2 attractions (a movie in 4 d and the explosive mine), except that one of the 2 attractions was down. We were very disappointed especially as no commercial gesture n wanted to be done. Attention, tickets purchased has advance on the internet are not tradable or refundable. VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED...
