Our tour to Chateaux de Chambord and Chenonceau was amazing our tour guide Adam was the best tour guide ever, he made the experience fun and full of interesting facts. I would do it again and so would my 18 year old son. I recommend it for everyone. It was just fabulous.
We had a great day and the highlight was the French meal at the winery, Chateau de Nitray. The huge crowds at Chateau de Chenonceau was a spoiler for what was otherwise a wonderful day.
We finished off our Paris trip with this tour on the last day. It was a highlight of our trip. Adam, the guide, was great. The wine tasting was awesome; it was really nice to have a regular folksie meal over Parisian restraunt fare. Our biggest complaint is that you pack a lot into one day, and so you don't get to spend a lot of time at the castles. Chenonceau was pretty packed. When we go back to Paris, we want to go back to the Loire Valley. Out of all the things we did, this tour was the most memorable.
Fantastic tour - thoroughly enjoyed the wine tasting and lunch, and Chenonceau was definitely the highlight.
Not enough stars to describe our experience. The two tour leaders were the nicest and extremely fun to be with and very knowledgeable and informative. The highlight of the trip was our visit to an independent family run winery where they treated us to a gourmet lunch to go along with the wine tasting. Just scrumptious. The wine was excellent and even bought three bottles to take back home (which they boxed up) for only 15 euros. This was definitely a highlight of our trip Paris.
Absolutely great, nice small group,good drive, superquide Paulina!!!! Lovely easy to listen english, no french pronounciation, as it is so hard to listen all long day, and also in buss microphone instead of headset, easier! Only the place of start by the catacombes so far, you needed a taxi.
Fantastic tour guide and really enjoyable day. Also loved the lunch and wine tasting and Nitray. Only small negative was the air on the bus. Got quite warm and uncomfortable at times due to the air conditioning on the bus not being great. Overall would highly recommend this tour though!
What a great experience! The tour guide was very friendly and informative. At each place, we were given ample free time to explore on our own. Lunch was delicious. I highly recommend this tour!
wonderful time on this tour, guides were great. Good lunch with plenty of wine and excellent tours of Chateauxs. Long ride but guides filled up the time with information and history about the sights which added to the experience. Highly recommended.
We LOVED this tour. The majority of our time in France was in Paris, so this was a wonderful opportunity to get out of the city and see some amazing sites. Our tour group was a small and friendly bunch (representing an array of home countries), and our tour guide (Caroline) was very knowledgable and engaging. Lunch was delicious, and the wine tastings were enjoyable. Truly a highlight of our trip to France!
Absolutely fabulous....our guide Caroline was wonderful. She was so knowledgeable and made the whole day so enjoyable.
Absolutely stunning tour. Chateau Nitray was a highlight. The meal was superb and we were the only tour there. Please keep it like that. We had a hiccough when at Chambord the driver of our bus did not have the correct permit to drive for so many days and was fined. After an hour and a half of sitting on the bus a guest paid the substantial fine so that we could get on our way (he was to be reimbursed). Someone slipped up badly here. Our guide was mortified and bought us each a bottle of wine from the company to apologise. After the superb lunch at Nitray, tour and bottle of wine all was forgiven. It did not spoil our day and neither did we have to miss anything. It was unfortunate, none of the guests got upset which could have impacted badly on the tour. All in all a really wonderful tour. We were well looked after.
