It was perfectly organized and Marion was a very good guide, very informative with plenty of interesting insights and recommendations. Visits to both castles were very interesting and led in a proffesional way, good spots for pictures and views, right timings to avoid waiting and biggest crowds. Wine tasting was very interesting and we’ve been offered a 37 year old wine to try, nice recommendation for lunch. Strongly recommended!

The guide, Audrey, was welcoming, conversational, and informative. The experience itself was overall very nice. The only thing we had felt a little disappointed about was how quickly you moved from activity to activity. I understand it's all within a 8-ish hour period, but it would have been nice to have more time to explore the chateaus. It seemed a little expensive for the result, but it was nice to be in a smaller group with direct transportation for the whole day. If considering booking, please make sure your whole party can walk a good distance. Part of our group had some difficulties, which slowed the whole party down and cut into our exploration time.

This tours was a great sampling of some Loire Valley highlights! I loved how much we saw; it was really packed with activities. Kind of pricey, but it was worth it with how much we saw, plus the small tour group size. The only thing I wish was different was for the tour to be longer. I would've loved an extra 30 minutes at each Chateau to take a walk around the gardens and see some of the exterior features of the place. The current tour structure is pretty in/out quickly, and I would've liked to see more of these beautiful places.
