Very enjoyable to go with a small group. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative, even though she did not guide us through the chateux.

A relaxing stress free day and our guide spoke good English. The Castles were amazing. We were glad we saw these first and then Versailles.

The Loire Valley is very serene and lovely. The castle tour was magical and interesting. The day went by quickly and was well worth the trip. Very good guide and very well organized trip. Everything went off without a hitch. I enjoyed it and was happy that I did the tour.

We were delighted with this tour. Our small group of 6 visited D`Ambiose, De Chenonceau and Chambord, formerly a hunting lodge. Our lunch was delicious, 4 courses in pleasant surroundings. The 3 Chateaus were diverse giving us variety. Our guide gave us information as required but we toured the chateaus on our own, with a booklet. Being picked up from our hotel and dropped back was great too. Very user friendly tour!

This was a most enjoyable trip for my husband and I. I was fascinated by the history and beauty of the palaces especially the very picturesque Chennonceau where we also enjoyed an awesome lunch. Our tour guide was great in answering all our questions and gave adequate time for us to wonder off and do our own thing. A lovely visit to do on a Sunday.

My two grandaughters and I are in to castles, so we loved it. Although the trip was fairly long 21/2-3 hours, it was well worth it. The lunch in the Orangerie at Chemonceau Castle was superb-more like a five course meal. I was disappointed that we were unable to tour Da Vinci's chateau-Clos Luce as stated in the info. We toured Amboise instead. You might want to change your info concerning this. Our driver was great - very courteous and informative. We were so glad we chose the mini van tour. We were picked up at our apartment and enjoyed a personal trip with another couple, then returned to our doorstep. My husband and I and two teenage grandaughters enjoyed this tour very much.

A great trip, really enjoyed it. It was very convenient to be picked up at the hotel. Our guide for the day was excellent and had a very good knowledge of Paris and the Loire valley. Loved the 3 chateaux, a very enjoyable day. I would give it a 5 star review.
