This was a wonderful day. Simon, our guide, was warm and engaging, helpful and entertaining. The winery and the restaurant where we dined for lunch were both welcoming and informative. Chateau de Chambord was yet another reminder of the extremely opulent lifestyle of the Royal elite in a bygone era. We highly recommend this tour. Ask for Simon!

Very nice day, we are picked up at our hotel and offered a chocolatine or a croissant with a bottle of water. Very appreciated for a departure which is quite early. The meal at the vineyard was excellent and unlimited wine. The guide very nice and very knowledgeable about wine. The visit to the castle is free and plenty of time to go around. I recommend this day to everyone!!!!

The castle tour was really fun and learned lots of history. Self guided using an iPad. From there went to lunch which was good but they didn’t get the request with our dietary restrictions but it worked out. The wine tasting and learning about the wines and grapes and exploring the cave where they store the wine was really cool
