A wonderful tour that I would highly recommend. Our guides violet and Patrice were informative friendly and funny. It was a long day, but it gave us the opportunity to see the countryside of France in an air conditioned coach. Our visit to Chateaux de Chambord and Chenonceau was beautiful, and our lunch very enjoyable.
We greatly enjoyed the beautiful architecture of Castle Chambord, and the lovely Chateau Chenonceau. This was my husband's favourite thing we did in Europe. I am glad we went on the tour, although, personally I did not think much of the wine. The best of those we tasted was, I thought, the sparkling white, a bit like champagne, but I found even that one had an after taste I did not like. This tour is also something that would be fairly complex and expensive to do on your own, so offers a way to see these castles that is comfortable and easy and is pretty good value for money. Chambord was a lovely surprise- I thought I was going because I wanted to see Chenonceau.
This tour was everything I had expected. It was thoroughly delightful and informative. Our guide, Tina, was very personable and added to the tour with her knowledge of French history and the chateaux.
Our visits to the different chateaux were brief but we had a guided tour and then a little bit of time to explore on our own. The chateaux themselves were outstanding with their history, architecture and gardens.
The lunch at Chateau Nitray was a delight. The food and wine were excellent and the owner was very fun. I
I definitely recommend this tour for someone who would like to get a taste of the Loire Valley.
This tour was a lot of fun! The chateaux's are just spectacular and lunch was nice. We also bought some beautiful wine from Chateau de Nitray and Chenonceau. Our guide Tina was lovely and very knowledgable. The only downside is we would have loved more time in each of the chateaux's to explore
It was an awesome day! Violet and Lilia, our tour guides were very interesting, knowledgeable, and easy to understand. Information given just added to the whole experience. We would highly recommend to anyone!
We took a day out of our Paris stay to visit the Loire Valley the tour, booked thru Viatour, is run locally by the tour company and they do an excellent job. Our tour guide, Violette, was simply extraordinary extremely knowledgeable, very personable and quite adept at dealing with groups. Theyve structured the tour quite well to hit the true highlights: Chambord Castle is truly impressive, and they give you head sets to ensure you can hear your guide Violette did a wonderful walking tour. An authentic French country lunch accompanies the wine tasting with some amazing wine values and the stop at Chenonceau Castle is a good way to end a perfect day. This tour was an ideal combination of sightseeing, history lessons and wonderful food and wine.
Violet and Ben were very knowledgable and made the tour a lot of fun!
This was by far one of our favorite days while in France. Our guide, Violet, was very knowledgeable and added a nice, personal touch to the tour. We enjoyed her stories of the history of both of the chateaux. Chateaux de Chambord and Chenonceau were both absolutely stunning. However, our favorite part of the day was our visit to Chateau de Nitray for lunch and wine tasting. The food was great, the wine was amazing and the owner was entertaining. Overall, a very nice opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of Paris and enjoy the French countryside. We highly recommend this day trip!
My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed this trip! The chateaus were beautiful, lunch was delicious, and Violet (our tour guide) was extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend this trip!
Patrice and a Violet were fantastic guides we had a lovely day thank you.
It was really great. I absolutely loved the two guides Pascal and Violet who made the trip fly by, They we're both full of information about the history of the castle and the times.
The lunch was wonderful, the whole day which was a long one, was very special.
Note: It helps to enjoy walking.
We had a wonderful time on the trip to Loire Valley, Adam was a wonderful guide and made it fun and interesting.
This is not a typical American Wine Tasting -- it's very paced and minimal for wines. Mostly white wines as well but we highly recommend it. The castles were surreal. It's a 9 hr tour on bus but our guide Adam was fabulous and entertaining.
A very enjoyable day touring the picturesque Loire Valley. Chateau Chenonceau and it's surrounding grounds was particularly beautiful. Really glad we took this tour!
Excellent trip, beautiful castles, great tour guide, and the lunch with wine tasting was a neat experience! Chenonceau was easily the most beautiful of the 3 castles, Chambord had the Da Vinci staircase, and Nitray had the great wine at a cheap price under 5 Euros!.
Perfect!! Two guides who were very knowledgable and fun to be around, fantastic chateaus, good food, good wine and made some new friends.
