The guide was prompt, friendly and gave us a very good trip. We got a lot of sightseeing in one day. This is about the only way to see the Loire Castles in a day trip from Paris.
One of the best trips I have ever had with Viator . The small group makes you get the attention of the tour guide . He was very knowledgable and punctual . The lunch was so good . We visited 3 palaces . During the 6 hours driving going and coming back . During periods he was focusing on driving I wish they have had light music to play. Over all it was a wonderful experience that I highly recommend
I would most definitely recommend this tour!! The guide was excellent, friendly and provided a number of interesting facts about each of the castles! They were each very different and unique. The lunch was absolutley delicious. Really appreciated being picked up and dropped off at my hotel.
Our trip was amazing, a great guide who was able to speak clearly and concisely about our day, where and what we were doing, and the important facts. The 3 castles we went to are a reflection of differing current ownerships, and are a contrast to each other. The transport was by minibus, which was new, and we were part of a small group of 6. It was very personal, and great not to be amongst a big crowd.
We were three sisters visiting Paris - with the Loire Valley high on our list of places to see. We loved it ! Natasha our driver was wonderful, she was friendly and informative and helped make the day great. The Amboise Castle was lovely - as was the Village of Amboise itself - what a quaint and picturesque place to visit. We absolutely loved the Chateau Chenonceau, the chateau was sensational, the gardens stunning, and our lunch at the restaurant very delicious. We didn't particularly enjoy the Chateau Chambord - we would have preferred to have spent the time at Da Vinci's garden or have more time in the Village of Amboise. That said, we would still highly recommend the tour with your company.
My daughter and I have a wonderful experience. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the chateaus and the history of the area. We were picked-up and returned on time to our hotel. All in all a lovely day in the Loire Valley!
We were picked up in a new Mercedes three seat van. Only one other couple. This van had huge windows all round and glass roof great views. Good guide /driver we moved very quickly to furthest castle and were the first there Great to miss the crowds who we encountered only on the last visit.The meal at Chenonceau was very good. Not cheap but we got value and saw what we paid for
This was a great day trip - out guide was highly knowledgable and friendly, the small group size was perfect as we could get to know each other over the wonderful included lunch. We got to explore the 3 castles at our own pace which was excellent. I had a great time :)
We had a wonderful trip to the chateaus of the Loire Valley. Our guide provided very interesting historic and local information and generally made it a most enjoyable experience. We visited Amboise, probably our favourite as it is in such a picturesque location and there were few other tourists. Next was looked through the very beautiful Chenenceau were we also had an excellent 3 course meal with local wine. The final chateau was Chambord. A most grand and ornate buidling complex.
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.
Excelent trip, surprising sites, excelent guide. Highly recommended.
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.
David, the guide was outstanding. He spoke 5 languages and was entertaining and helpful. He even went beyond the job. OUTSTANDING
