Prompt reply to phone call from airport, short wait for bus, good trip to hotel, driver polite and a good safe driver.

Very nice all day tour. The tour guides were very knowledgeable about the history of each Chateau. Would highly recommend this tour but it is a long day and by the 3rd Chateau you are really getting tired.
NIce trip to the loire valley. Comfortable bus.About a 13 hour day,
Gives you a taste of the loire valley and an overview of the area you might want to visit on your own with a car.It was a nice day trip out of paris.The guide was very helpful and gave a nice history of the area and the chateaux.
Was disappointed for the price they did not include lunch

This tour made for a very long day, but worth every minute! Our guide was excellent and with us the entire time. She was very knowledgeable, but I must admit I had a hard time understanding through her accent a few times. However, this tour was well planned and we learned about each of the chateaus, who lived their, how the various inhabitants improved the chateau and the history of the times during each chateaux existence. All three were magnificent examples of how life in the period was lived, while each had its own particular role. The weather went back and forth from some rain to sunny skies, but it did not matter. The experience was definitely one we shall remember!
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and had amazing skills at getting us through crowds to greater vantage points. Take the tour going on your own could be problematic.
The only problem is lack of time at each castle. We had a great guide and the trip out and back was wonderful. The villages were so charming. A great visit.
We had a wonderful time on this tour. All of the guides were very knowledgeable and very charming.
Great day. All three Chateau's where amazing. Lovely English speaking guide who was very knowledgeable
It was an absolutely fabulous day!!! The castles are amazing. The bus ride was clean and comfortable. Our guides were very informative and energetic. They seemed to really enjoy their jobs. I wish we had a little more time to explore/shop after the tour at Chambord. I felt a little bit rushed to get back to the bus on time. This day trip is a must see experience.
Well organized, comfortable travel, interesting guides.
We have taken a number of trips with Viator in several counties and have never been disappointed. This trip was no exception - the guides were very good and the entire day ran smoothly.
There were several people in our group who had booked the trip through another tour operator and their cost was significantly higher - so Viator is the best for both quality and value!
Great way to ease into our visit to PARIS after a long flight. Beautiful countryside views on the bus trip and lunch in Cheverny was awesome. Great and cheap local wines can be purchased in a cave under the Chateau, lots of time to explore and sample during your lunch break.
The bus trip was very convenient and comfortable. It took a bit to figure out we had to take our coupon into the tour office in Paris before we knew which bus we were to travel on and where to get it. The tours of the three chateaus was very thorough and gave us plenty of time to look around in spite of the crowd at each location.
Muy buen tour, las explicaciones completas y tiempo suficiente en cada castillo después de las explicaciones para fotos y explorar. Bus cómodo, al tiempo se realiza el tour en ingles y en español, es mas completo en ingles, por lo que decidimos cambiarnos de grupo en la mitad de las primeras explicaciones.
Excellent tour of the three castles. Amboise was not on the original itinerary, but it turned out to be my favorite castle and the most interesting little town. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who is interested in medieval castles and European French history. It was a very long day, but definitely a worthwhile trip. Next time in France I will do more castles!
Lovely day out with the history and background of each of the chateaus. Very informative
