Our experience on this one day tour of the Chateau region was outstanding. A little pricey as tours go, The guide that took us out for the day, Vincent, was excellent. Our group was English language and Vincent, who grew up in the region, was able to communicate very well and answer our many questions. He was an example of someone who takes his job seriously and has done much studying about French history as it relates to the Castles. This made our experience very interesting and Informative. He has a great personality and knows how to make the day enjoyable. This tour also included a wonderful hot luncheon meal at a local cafe! I highly recommend France Intense and Get your Guide.
Excellent tour of the caves as well as lesson from a sommelier in understanding and enjoying wines. The tour included some interesting videos of wine in the Loire Valley over the past century: very informative. And then the wine tasting itself was enjoyable and educational with food pairing addition.
The pick up point was in a convenient location to the train and left on time as the day was carefully scheduled to include two major chateaux, lunch and a wine tasting. Our guide, Nicholas, was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Everything went very smoothly and enjoyably.
The tour and guide were excellent. The only thing to note is that the lunch at the restaurant was not great. Would have preferred a simpler meal (like a cheese and meat plate) rather than a full sit down meal at a restaurant that caters to tours.
Vincent was an amazing tour. Lunch was great and so were the tours. The wine tasting was a bit odd but still enjoyable. The movie they play during the wine tour doesn't connect to wine.
