The tour was wonderful. Having lunch at Chenonceau is an unforgettable experience. The only thing I would change is visiting Amboise. I would switch it to a different more beautiful chateau. Out tour guide was wonderful and kept us entertained during the trip with the history behind the castles. I recommend this tour to anyone who hasn't been in the Loire Valley before.

Guide showed up on time and was friendly and driving a nice mini-van. Can't imagine trying to do this on my own. All three castles were spectacular and worth seeing. Lunch was at one of the castles and was very upscale. Well worth you time!
