Everything about the trip was good. Our guide gave the best background information...better than any history class I had. I planned this trip in order to show my 11 yr. old granddaughter how the kings lived. She loved seeing the castles.
The trip was Amboise, Chenonceau, and Chambord not Cheverny. This was a great tour that was a very long day well over 12 hours end to end. But we were able to hit three of the most beautiful chateaux in the country. Our tour guide was terrific and had a surprising level of knowledge of the history surrounding these locations. For the money, I don't think you could do a lot better. This was a great value. I was disappointed to see that very few on the tour tipped the guide afterwards she really did a great job.
Beautiful countryside. A varied sample of the chateaux. Very interesting and educational. Knowledgeable guides. Comfortable bus. Definitely worth the time and cost.
An outstanding experience! Saw three châteaus with an excellent English-speaking tour guide. I highly recommend this tour.
The day trip was great. Comfy bus, great driver and tour guides. Very informative. The only downside was the business of Cheverny. Extremely crowded therefore hard to move about or see anything inside...outside was beautiful and easy to navigate. Yes, we would go again. Allot of walking and stairs.
Excellent from start to finish. Two guides, Stephanie and Sophie, who took the English speakers and the Italian/Spanish speakers respectively. Headsets earphones meant that we could always hear our guide clearly. The group was a decent size but not too big. I liked that we had free time everywhere, but would have liked a touch more at Chenonceau and Chambord we had a lot more at Amboise, which was substituted in place of Cheverny for the day that we went.
The chateaux are absolutely stunning and you won't regret seeing them! This also from a comfy and air-conditioned necessary when we went! bus will make it a day to remember. The Loire Valley is just stunning!
This was the best guided tour we have taken in Europe so far. The tour guides were excellent 3 of them, speaking in different languages. They accompanied their groups in the castles and gave great commentary. There was adequate time. BIG tip: take the Saturday tour check the details when they visit Amboise instead of Cheverny. Amboise is quite fascinating and scenic and includes the grave of Leonardo da Vinci. The town of Amboise is also extremely picturesque with a lovely river-side park which is a great place to have a short picnic lunch. This tour is expensive, but it was outstanding and especially on the Saturday schedule of Amboise-Chenonceaux-Chambord. C 'est magnifique!
The tour was wonderful. I was able to see three castles and the countryside. I would highly recommend this company to anyone.

Great trip. Very good guide. Fantastic 3-course lunch !!! Very good bus driver. Great fellow travellers.
A lovely day touring the Loire valley and three different chateaux. Very interesting informative tour guide. Lots of opportunity to wander on our own after the guided part finished. Lunch was included as it is winter.
This trip was well worth the time and the money. Run very profesionly on time,nice buses and lunch was in a small hotel. The guide was Franchesca and she was knowledgeable and you could tell she enjoyed history. We took three tours this was by far the best.
Do not usually like tours. This was well run , fast paced and delivered what it promised.
