This was a great trip. We met the bus right across the street from a Metro stop in Paris and it left right on time at 7:30 AM. The drive to the country was pleasant, and our guide Carolina provided a lot of interesting information as we went. The guided tours of Chambord and Chenonceau were well done and enjoyable, and the wine tasting and lunch were also great. It was a very well done tour. The only problem we had was that we got stuck in massive traffic coming back into Paris after the tour. That part was frustrating, but not the fault of the tour company at all.
This was a wonderful tour!! My husband and I really enjoyed the Loire Valley/Wine Tasting tour. Our guides, Daniel and Carolina were entertaining and very well informed on the history of the area, we learned so much! The wines were delicious as well as the lunch at the Chateau de Nitray. The chateax were lovely. I would highly recommend this tour, very fun!
Great introduction to the Loire Valley and its chateaux in a well-organized tour! Daniel, our tour guide, was both knowledgeable and entertaining he added much to our understanding of each chateau and its relation to the history of France. The simple, but tasty and filling, lunch at a private chateau, and wine tastings both there and at Chenonceau which is especially lovely, really enhanced our outing. Highly recommend this trip!
The Chateau tours were great, the wine tasting and lunch were even better, and the guide was the best.
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.
