I enjoyed this excursion. The cheateauxs were fascinating, however, I enjoyed the wine tasting. The vineyard owner was funny and very entertaining. The lunch was great. Our guide was great and very informative.

The tour was well organized, both castles are beautiful (in their own way). I enjoyed leisurely ride along Loire Valley and the wine tasting - it was definitely a highlight and it was very interesting to see the "operating" châteaux and meet the owner.
Our guide (Adam) was very knowledgeable, shared a lot of interesting stories about history of the region and the chateaux. I quite enjoyed his sense of humor :)
Overall it was a very pleasurable day and a nice break from the busy-busy Paris.

I totally enjoyed this trip. Both of the chateauxs are amazing. The lunch at Nitray Chateau and vineyard was rustic and delicious and there was plenty of wine to taste and to drink with the meal. Adam, the tour guide was charming and very well versed in French history.

The tour to Loire Valley was fantastic! Everything about this tour was great. Our tour guide Caroline was narrative and informative, which made the day a fun experience. Our lunch experience was so delicious, we even had second helpings! Highly recommend this tour.

My husband and I loved this trip and it truly exceeded our expectations! Well organized in planning meeting place and itinerary. Bus was very comfortable, especially for the 2+ hour drives. Adam, our tour guide, was so knowledgeable and entertaining; he made history lessons fun! The family owned winery was so hospitable, serving a wonderful meal and generous with wine. The wine we purchased was a real value and one of the best Sauvignon Blancs we've had. Overall, we would highly recommend this trip: great way to visit and learn French history outside of Paris and to get some space away from the city. Very fair value for the cost of the trip--if you have a free day, definitely go!

We spent ten glorious days in Paris and thoroughly enjoyed it. But the highlight of our visit was the wonderful tour of Loire Valley chateaus and tasting wine and enjoying a country lunch at Chateau Nitray. Our guide, Adam, regaled us with fascinating historical facts and little-known anecdotes of the periods of French monarchy. It was a perfect day to compliment our trip. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts.

WHat can i say BUT awesome..Randa was our tour guide and she not only was very well versed in the local history of the region but was a very fun tour guide who kept the energy level high in the whole group.She was very organized and ran a very smooth tour, she has a love and passion for the French culture and it definately shines thru during her tour..if you take the trip be sure to pick up some snacks at the little store during the way there, nice to have something to eat and drink, its a long day and alot cheaper than buying stuff while at the attractions... Definately take the trip...you wont be disappointed

This was a great tour lead by Adam, a fantastic guide. It certainly was a day well spent visiting the Loire Valley and 3 outstanding chateaus. The chateaus were extremely interesting and the wine lunch was outstanding. Adam was extremely knowledgeable about each of the chateaus and provided interesting information relative to each. I would highly recommend this tour. It was certainly an enjoyable day.

A wonderful experience in every way. Adam was a witty informative tour director which added much to this day trip. Wine tasting and lunch at the beautiful vineyard was divine. We highly recommend this joyful tour and rate it as one of our best experiences during our ten day Paris visit!

Totally enjoy this trip!! The chateaux were beautiful. The winery was such a pleasant stop with a delicious lunch. Our guide was excellent, too. She had lots of information to share.

A wonderful tour! The tour (operated by Dark Rome Tours) took in two of the most spectacular Chateaux in the Loire Valley. The tour never felt rushed, and we were always given adequate time to explore each chateaux at out leisure after the major points of interest were addressed. The history lesson given by our guides (Caroline and Randa) was a welcomed addition! The highlight would have been the visit to Chateau de Nitray (a privately owned Chateaux and winery). The hospitality received here (including the gourmet lunch) was exceptional! Would highly recommend to travellers thinking of escaping Paris for a day!
