This was a long day but was worth it. Violet was our tour guide. She loves her city. She is so knowledgable and enthusiastic about her job and the history of France - it was just unbelievable. The castles were beautiful, I loved Uber and his sense of humor. Questions?? no questions and follow me. It was a fun filled day, the meal was great. We just love Violet. Rita and Karen
The Castles are beautiful! Valerie and Tina were knowledgeavle and excellent guides whi love their work and they made this trip fun and informative! We had a wonderful lunch and enough time to wander around in each of the castles. The wine tasting was fun as well.
Beautiful tour with entertaining and knowledgeable guides. My husband and I really loved both the meal and wine tasting at Chateau de Nitray and Chenonceau was well worth the long drive.

Great tour. Violet and Adam were our guides and were extremely knowledgeable. Loved the tag-team commentary. The chateaus were amazing, the countryside beautiful and the food and wine were divine! Highly recommend!
This was an amazing day! The chateaus were wonderful as well as the wine tastings and lunch. Adam and Violet were our guides. We couldn't of asked for better ones. They were very knowledgeable about the history and the surroundings and made the day so much fun. This was the best tour we have ever gone on!
Castles, Loire Valley, Wine - what else can be said? It was perfect! The tour guides were very knowledgeable and shared fun facts about the history of the Loire Valley and the castles we visited. It was a great introduction to the beauty of this area!
Most excellent tour. City Wonders tour company is the best! Patrice and Violet were excellent guides. Really enjoyed learning about the history of French royalty and all the castles. The guides really knew what they were talking about and very invested into our well-being.
It was a wonderful tour! Our guide Tina was absolutely wonderful and informative!
The trip was excellent. Our guide Violet was amazing, very knowledgeable and friendly. One of the best guides we have ever had! Our group was small 17 and we had a wonderful day. We had a pleasant drive to the Loire Valley and really enjoyed all three stops. The food and wine were great! We also had the opportunity for a wine tasting at Chenonceau. I highly recommend this trip. It was one of our highlights from our Paris/Normandy trip.
Perfect balance of sight-seeing and wine-tasting. The host, Tina, was great - fun and informative!
We really enjoyed this tour. You get to see to great Chateaux and have lunch at a winery. The air conditioning on the bus was minimal, but the tour guides addressed the issue and gave up a free beverage and got us a 10 discount - VERY CLASSY that they addressed the issue best that they could.
Simply enchanting!! Andrew, our tour guide, provided us with a knowledgeable, entertaining look into days of old and the ensuing drama created by the royalty. And then there was the wine....simply delicious.
Great Tour, Tina was a very good guide and a very nice person. Many thanks to her
This tour was fantastic! Our tour guide Adam was amazing! He gave some rich history lessons all throughout the tour and had some hilariously funny facts and stories to share. He kept the bus rides entertaining and enlightening and gave just the right amount of context to each stop we made. The tour of Chambord was the perfect amount of time as there really isnt much to see and Adam led us to all the good spots. The wine tasting and lunch at Nitray was great. A simple, but delicious meal. Overall we tasted 4 wines, 3 before lunch and 1 after lunch and coffee. During lunch they have wine on the table and you can ask for more. In fact it is encouraged! The wine here was good and very cheap! Average 6 euro a bottle. The next stop is Chenonceau. The chateaux and its ground are gorgeous. The tour here is much shorter but you have the option to walk around some more or go to the 2nd wine tasting, which is something they dont tell you when you sign up. I opted for the 2nd wine tasting as I felt that the tour showed you the nicest rooms inside the castle and the rest of the time spent would be wandering the grounds and some of the other rooms. The wine tasting here was even better than the one at Nitray. The wines are little more expensive but only by 2-3 Euro. Overall this tour was definitely worth the price and great way to explore outside of Paris.
City wonders do excellent tours with great guides, Adam was excellent, very knolwdgable and funny. Booking through viator was great I booked only a couple of days before and it was all perfect.
Violet was our tour guide and was the most outstanding guide we have ever had. Her passion, enthusiasm, and knowledge added to the trip that was already exceptional because of the beauty of the region. She took her time, was personable to all, and made the day even better than we had anticipated. Our entire family went and it was one of the best days of our trip. I would highly recommend this tour!
Absolutely fantastic ! the guides Adam and Violette were wonderful complemented each other so well, best history lesson , wine tasting tour we have ever been on
can't recommend this tour highly enough a must do if staying in Paris Fabulous
We had a great time on this tour exploring the Loire Valley and Wine Tasting! It was a long day but highly recommend it to those wanting to see some lovely Chateaux's. Our guide was very knowledgeable, easy to understand, friendly and gave excellent recommendations for the rest of trip.
What a great way to see 3 different Chateaux and enjoy wine from the Loire Valley. Violet, our tour guide was a joy during the day long tour providing interesting history of the Loire Valley and Chateaux de Chambord and Chenonceau. Since we were staying in Paris, it was nice to get away from the city and enjoy a relaxing day in the countryside!
We meet bright and early at Denfert-Roucheau outside the ticket office of the catacombe. Caught the metro, as the exit was just across the road, there are a number of cafes open nearby as well as a great artisnal bakery for coffee and snacks before you leave. Our guides for the say were Tina a lovely Croatian girl,and Adam a wonderful Canadian young man. Both were extremely friendly and knowledgable. Adams knowledge of french history was second to none. The chateaus were just wonderful, Tina and Adam brought them to life with their commentary. Lunch at the Chateau de Nitray was delicious, yet so simple. The wines werent too bad either. The meeting point at Denfert-Roucheau is a fair distance from where we were staying on Ille St Louis, about a 45 minute walk, thats why we did the trip on the metro. All in all a fabulous day. Well organised. Not too rushed. Returned Paris about 7.30pm. There was a toilet, refreshment stop both ways. Take a snack and water for the trip, even with the breaks something to eat was nice to have. 10/10
with their commentary. Lunch at Chateau Nitray was something special. The food was so simple but so
delicious. The wines werent too bad either, if only maybe a bit young for my liking. This is a long day, with an
early start, the starting point in Paris is a fair distance from where we were staying on Ille St
Beautiful trip, very well planned and organized. Just the right mix of sightseeing and wine tasting. The guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. Lunch was provided at one of the chateaux where we also did some wine tasting. Exellent meal and lots of fun.
It was a great trip. The guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. The wines were great, the food at lunch was delicious and the wine master was entertaining. The optional wine tasting in the afternoon was worth the time.
