A most enjoyable experience with a knowledgeable and friendly guide.

The tour was very well organised and a most interesting experience. We were picked up on time from the Loire Tourist Office in Tour, and taken on a picturesque drive to our first stop at the Alain Robert vineyards. We were met there by the wife of the owner who gave us an interesting insight into the growing and harvesting cycle. We then went up to the higher vineyards and sampled Vouvray wines in the beautiful countryside; wonderful! Next we went on to see the bottling process. Finally we visited the labyrinthine limestone cellars of the Bredif winery; an amazing experience! Our guide from the winery gave us a well informed and entertaining tour, which culminated in a wine tasting accompanied by tasty snacks. The 4 hour tour exceeded expectations and made us feel that we would like to spend more time exploring this region and it's wonderful countryside and viniculture.

Daphne was outstanding; the pacing was superb!

Enjoyed the coffee and pastries to begin, the explanation of the history of Chateau Chenonceau; the lunch made by the countess and tour of her home was uniquely special; and the conclusion in Chambord with wine and snacks was a fabulous conclusion to an extraordinary day. Merci beaucoup Daphne!

We had a wonderful day touring the Chateaus, our guide informative.

My only suggestion would be a different meeting place for pick up closer to our hotel. I believe this could easily be done if the tour operator would do some outreach to travelers. The current meeting spot was in a bad part of the city with late night party goers ending their evening. Other guests met at a different location that was near our hotel. This location was not provided to us, which was a sore spot to start off our excursion.

Agathe was a wonderful guide and the chateaux were brilliant

What a lovely day made special by our guide and her knowledge and humour. Agathe was ably assisted by Vincent - for the day- and we had a really lovely time, specially the final picnic on the lawns at Chambord - what a treat!

A very enjoyable full day to the Loire Valley

The pickup and ride to Chambord went smoothly and we arrived at the castle before it became busy. The audio-video guides explained the rooms as we walked through them, but we found ourselves hurrying to finish by our 11am rendezvous. The ride to lunch took us through beautiful countryside along the Loire river and we enjoyed lunch at a restaurant in the caves in the hillside. We finished with a visit to a winery in Vouvrey where we walked through the sparkling wine cellars and enjoyed tasting several styles of wine. We thoroughly enjoyed the day
