This castke and wine tasting tour was highlight of my trip. Transports you back in time. One of the castles provides a lovely lunch and wine tasting and store to purchase wine made on from the vineyard. Guides gave the history of each castle and were very informative and friendly. Well worth it!
Beautiful day, great guides, the properties are wonderful. Highly recommended.
Lunch and wine tasting was great.

The guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the chateaus and region. The day was enjoyable and I would highly recommend this tour!
I should say up front that I am usually not a tour person...I prefer to do things on my own. However, I wanted to fit in a bit of the Loire Valley during a recent trip to Paris, and this tour made it easy to do in a short amount of time. I have to say this day trip was the highlight of our trip. Very well organized...buses were on time, clean, and comfortable. Our tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and told us a lot about the history of the area. I have dreamed for years of visiting Chenonceau and it did not disappoint. Chambord's architecture was fascinating. Lunch at Chateau Nitray was absolutely delicious and gave us time to get to know fellow travelers on our tour. The tour guide gave us a good mix of guided tour and the opportunity to strike out on our own a bit.
Overall a fantastic way to get a taste of the Loire and a delicious lunch that will inspire you to return and spend more time in region. I know we will!
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided an excellent tour. The wine tastings were wonderful and the castles incredible!
The chateaux were well worth the visit, the countryside beautiful, the guides informative and entertaining, people were friendly and welcoming. Great tour.
This tour was absolutely worth it. Our tour guide Laura was extremely knowledgeable and shared so much history about the castle we visited, the royalty that lived there and French history in general. She also spent some time afterwards answer questions from guests about places to eat, the metro, getting to the airport, etc. So kind! Chamboard and Chenoneau are truly beautiful and absolutely worth the drive. Lunch was charming and the wine tasting at lunch and Chenonceau was well worth it. It is a long day, but many rest stops are provided. I recommend bringing snacks, so you don't have to worry about making time to buy them instead of seeing the castles. Highly recommend.
This was fantastic and we would highly recommend it to anyone. The two guides were very knowlegeable and personable. They took the time to explain all the history of the chateaus before we got there and continued throughout the time we walked into them. The most entertaining and fun however was the trip to Chateaux de Nivry where we go to have lunch and do a wine tasting as part of the experience. The owner who lead it was was funny, personable, and made the whole experience memorable. It was just a very enjoyable 12 hours.
We had a wonderful day in the Loire valley. Laura was an excellent guide who gave us so much information about French history and the castles we visited. I would recommend her as a guide any dat.
Both chateaux were worth the visit, and the wine tastings were generous and good quality. Be aware that access to both castles, especially Chenonceau, require lots of walking to get to the entrance. The lunch served at Vitray was terrific and the guides were native English speakers so no issues with communication as we had with other day trips.
Truly enjoyed the tour. Laura was fabulous
Great chateaus n lunch. Could have had a little more time at each place but it was a great day
Loved the guides and it was well worth the day away from Paris.
Very good tour. The guides were very knowledgeable and interactive the us. That made the trip memorable for us. The destinations were worth the long drive to see them all!
The trip itself is amazing. The Chateaux are all wonderful. What made the trip was our tour guide Lara. She took control by level setting the day, giving us time to wake up, and passionately sharing the rich history of the region with us. Lara's knowledge made the setting really come to life. The bus was comfortable and convenient. We really enjoyed this tour.
Tour was excellent if you are a history buff and would like to experience french country side in comfort. Guides are wonderful and informative, transfers are comfortable, food and wine is amazing and the castles are beautiful.
Wow, what a great tour! Full day of amazing history and a great lunch and wine,
Enjoyed all parts of this trip - Had the opportunity to many parts of the Loire valley without the hassle of driving yourself.
We book this to get out of the city and see a different side of France! We couldn't have booked a better tour, our guides were awesome - funny and informative. The castles were amazing, especially liked the Château de Chenonceau just amazing how it built over the river - the quintessential Princess Castle. The wine tasting and lunch were great too! Thanks again for a fun day!
We had an amazing day! We saw gorgeous castles, drank delicious wine and learned quite a bit about the history of France. The guides were very knowledgeable, and the bus ride was very comfortable.A perfect day trip from Paris!
