Best French experience

We visited three lovely historic Châteaux and did wine tasting at a cute little shop. We also had lunch in a small cafe which had delicious authentic French food. I loved every minute! Our guide, Olivier, was wonderful! I loved this trip so much more than Versailles.

Amazing Experience

My partner and I reserved this small-group day trip to Loire Valley to visit three castles and I can't stress enough how amazing this tour was! We were met at the pick-up spot right on time in a small passenger van that held 8 people, and after a 2 hour ride south, we arrived at our first castle. We were the first visitors there and it almost felt like a private tour, which was extremely pleasant. We were also given tablets that we can use in just about each room that would transport our view to what these rooms looked like back in those times...augmented reality at its finest! Since this was the biggest castle of the 3, we were given plenty of time to explore on our own without feeling rushed. The second castle was less than an hour away and the ride to the castle was amazing as we traveled through the French countryside. The 2nd caste, Chenonceaux was our favorite! The grounds were absolutely beautiful and the fact that there were very few visitors was a plus as we got some really amazing pictures. Our tour guide gave us the best tip, which was to walk through the gardens on the way to the castle rather than heading down the main path and boy was she right! The experience was definitely worth it. Lastly, we headed to Amboise castle a few minutes away in a quaint little French village, where we had lunch at a local restaurant (there are many to chose from) before visiting the castle and Leonardo DaVinci's grave. The only thing I would change on the tour is the wine tasting. It was held at a wine shop in the village and would much rather have gone to a winery for the tasting. All in all, our tour guide was amazing and very down to earth. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone and it is much more enjoyable than doing a larger group tour. Next time I go back to France, I will check out this tour companies other small group tours like the champagne tours.

My mum and I went on this tour on 03 Dec 19. It was fantastic! Highly highly recommend paying a little bit more to do this smaller group tour. We saw other tours with huge bus loads of people, which I’m sure are still good, but looked nowhere near as enjoyable or comfortable as ours did. It was just us and another two ladies who had booked individually. Our guide Antoine was amazing (and a great driver!) and never made us feel rushed. Better yet, there was no risk of being left behind! Thanks Antoine and Olivia :)

Fun Day & Gorgeous Chateaux

A fun day visiting 3 chateaux in the Loire Valley with a little wine tasting thrown in. Long drive out of Paris but our driver/guide Hanna kept us informed and laughing. Background discussions outside each location with time on our own to explore inside. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone who hasn't been.

A must see, this tour of the Loire Valley is worth the early morning departure. The guide was excellent between sites but chateaux are toured on your own. I didn't expect the drive to and from Paris to be so beautiful and interesting. Don't worry about this distance because you won't be bored at all. I highly recommend this tour!

Enjoyable day out of Paris to the beautiful Country side of the Loire Valley. The Castles and Castle grounds were fascinating. We had plenty of time to explore on each of our stops. Our Guide Annisy was very knowledgeable, personable and fun to be with. She gave us so much history of each Castle.
