5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

This tour was fabulous. Our guide Herbert was so knowledgeable about French history and regales us on the approx 2 hour drive to the first castle Amboise after picking us up at our hotel (so convenient!). The castles were fascinating;each one had a different feel-basic medieval to utterly charming.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

Fabulous!!! Everything you hope this tour would be. The guid Herbert was supper knowledgable, funny, respectful and accommodating. I would spend little less time in Chambord if I could cause there isn't much to see but the other 2 were amazing, I could stay there all day. The lunch was fantastic. This booking is worth every penny.
