Very good walking tour to the castles. Miriam the tour guide is very informative and told us the story of the castles in an interesting ways. However you need to be fit to walk about 3-4 hours with 2 times 5-10 min break. I really enjoyed my walking tour and I ll recommend others to do soz

The visit was in both French and English which was not planned. We had booked the English one. It was not a big deal but still not what we booked. The place is wonderful, the guide was good at making us remember facts by asking questions and making some jokes. I really like his way to approach the tour. I would have liked more content/facts to be shared during the visit.
