A very nice day trip from Paris. Given how spread out the chateaux are, unless you rent a car and brave the French highway system (not recommended!), this is just about the only way to see at least a few of the major ones. With a nice lunch included, and a competent guide, it's worth the cost.
Excellent . Worth each dollar we spent. Guide was very informative .going outside if Paris, 10 hours trip was beautiful . Highly recommend.
A full day tour from Paris to Loire Valley. We went to three castles in the countryside and each one was a little different. The ride was beautiful and the tour guides were great. The castles are full of so much history. If you have been to other castles in Europe, the architecture is a little different. Glad we did this tour!
The day my wife and I took this tour was probably my favorite part of our trip to France. Not only are the castles beautiful in their own right, but the natural settings around them were quite enjoyable and relaxing, a nice change from the hustle and bustle of Paris. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Overall a great experience.
Excellent tour - my favourite by far. Visiting these castles was like going back in time. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of each of the castles and their previous owners which made the trip that much more enjoyable. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who is interested in history and architecture.
We enjoyed this trip very much and was most impressed with the staff and their attention to details that made our day a wonderful and relaxing experience
The tour guide had so many interesting stories and facts. Although extremely crowded at this time of the year, the tour was excellent . The bus driver was very safe.
The tour was excellent!!!! Extremely well planned and executed in a timely manner for each destination. It is truely a great way to see these castle without staying overnight and the buses were very comfortable. Cherverny is to die for!!!!! You must do this!!!!
This tour was well organized, with a knowledgeable and entertaining guide. The three castles are well worth the trip; Chenonceau is especially lovely.
Loved this trip. It is worth the money. The rain slowed us down a bit, but we were still able to walk the gardens.
We were very pleased with this tour. Our bus was for English and Spanish speakers, and each group had its own tour guide. Ours was Pascale, who was extremely knowledgeable. The tour was efficiently organized, and while this was a busy travel season, with each stop attracting large crowds, we were able to enjoy our guided tours and time to explore on our own.
It was wonderful trip whole day long with incredible instructor who gave us very interesting and knowledgeable information about all castles we visited and much more. Thanks very much.
This is a great opportunity to visit these wonderful and diverse chateaux. Although not a lot of time is spent in each chateau, which is necessary to be able to see the three in the one day, it is sufficient time to be able to appreciate and enjoy the scale and beauty of each and to take photos to explore later.
Very impressive and well organised. We were glad to avoid long lines at the castles.
The guide was fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable of each of the castles. The spread of the day was well arranged, with enough time at each castle. It may assist though if all tours through the Paris office were not scheduled to commence at 7.15am as it makes it fairly confusing at the office in the morning - perhaps stagger with some at 7.30? Other than that, everything was smooth and efficient. Would definitely do a tour out of Paris again.
