Wonderful trip! Great driver - very knowledgeable and friendly guides Hugo and Carolina! Delicious lunch and tour at Nitray Winery - lots of history lessons at the 3 Castles - Definitely recommend this trip!!
Excellent tour, great guides, lots of historical facts.
Very comfortable buses and delicious meal at the winery.
Spectacular! Our tour guides Adam and Ferit were smart, funny, and informative. Oh, and the chateaus were beautiful... The absolute best tour we had in Europe.
Ferret is a wonderful guide. He made the tour more personal by knowing our names. Even during the bus ride he faced us and engaged us about the history of the places we've been to. The chateaus are breathtaking. Lunch was delicious and I personally love the wines I took home 3 bottles. At the end of the tour he offered his assistance on any information we needed for our stay in Paris.
It was a fabulous experience and the guides had great stories about history to tell in an entertaining way.
The bus ride was comfortable and pleasant. Definitely recommend this tour.
We loved the chateaux tour! Our guide Carolina kept us so entertained on the bus with great stories of French history and the chateaux inhabitants, and then continued the history inside the chateaux, which made the rooms come to life. The selection of castles was well thought out, and Chenonceau was particularly breathtaking. Lunch at the Chateau Nitray was relaxing, simple and delicious and included plenty of wine, and it was interesting to see a modern family living in a chateau. The chateau owner was particularly fun and welcoming.
Wonderful Day! Our guide, Tina, gave us a great history lesson during the tour which made this tour special. The first stop at the Château de Chambord, we saw the wonderful architecture and also details of the work of Leonard de Vinci's grand staircase in the middle of the castle. Enjoy the gourmet lunch and wine tasting at our stop in Nitray Vineyards located at the Château de Nitray . The host gave us a tour of their grounds after lunch . On our way to our third stop, we went through the town of Amboise, we passed by the Château d'Amboise and Tina showed us while passing by, the doors of the city underground tunnels where all the resident could flee from dangers. Then our third stop, we tour the wonderful Château de Chenonceau, its farm and gardens, this was my favorite of the tour!
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our day to the Loire Valley. It was lovely to see the Chateaus and some of the French countryside during our stay in Paris. Our guide Carolina was wonderful, sharing stories about the history along the way and pointing out key information at each of the Chateaus but also giving us plenty of free time at each location to wander and enjoy. The hosts at Chateau Nitray were also lovely and the food delicious.
Our guide was so great. Welcomed us, explained the days schedule, and promised information Bout history of our destinations. She was extremely knowledgeable and told stories, of kngs and queens and lovers as well as of armies and battles and conquests and language. I highly recommend this trip and give 5stars to our wonderful guide. Also hats off to our driver
This was also a great tour. The countryside, the staff the tour, the castles, the food and the whole experience was worth the full day.
We loved our trip to the Loire Valley. Tina was a terrific guide. She was very knowledgeable concerning the history of the area and entertained us with stories of the kings and their ladies. We couldnt have asked for a better guide. The castle visits were wonderful and the lunch and wine tasting were very enjoyable. We had plenty of time at each stop. Overall it was a great day and I would highly recommend it!
The tour guides Adam and Hugo made this a most enjoyable day - they were both entertaining story tellers bringing to life the times of various Kings, Queens and Mistresses of the times. The wine at the first stop was very good and sold for a very good price. Lunch was delicious as well.
Amazing. Guide was fantastic. Lunch and tours well beyond expectations! We have already recommended the tour to all our friends
Wonderful day out of Paris - entertaining and knowledgeable guide, excellent site visits and a marvelous overall experience!
Was the highlight of my trip!!! Guide was amazing!!!!! Explained everything about each castle and was such a lovely woman
Guide were knowledgable and the trip was more than expected so a great day had by all
This tour was fantastic! Very easy meet up-Our tour guide Adam was waiting across from the metro and in front of the catacombs, exactly as described. We not only got to see some impressive castles and drink authentic regional wine, we also learned an amazing amount of french history that surrounds the sites. Would take a tour from City Wonders again in a heart beat.
A great tour with a great tour guide! Adam provided us with tons of historical info plus more. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour.
Fantastic Tour and Guide- Danyl. We got to the stop by the Catacombs and took the bus to the Chateaux's. One by one we were in love. Having our guide Danyl explain as we went through was very important. To know the history behind these massive structures that were built before us was phenomenal. Thank you to Viator and City Tours for making this so pleasurable. We enjoyed the Wine, the Food and the Company! We will definitely use Viator and City Tours on our next adventure.
