A wonderful experience, our guide Isabelle, very knowledgeable.
We spent 2 more weeks in Burgundy and Provence so sorry to say we don't recall our guide's name. He was amazing - fluent in 5 languages and juggled between English and Spanish. We had a great time at the 3 Castles, the planned lunch and the travel to/from Paris. Viator you did it again - KUDOs to our Parisian driver/guide!!!
I wanted to visit Amboise and ge changed the itinerary just to accommodate my request.
Very informative and the your was spectacular .
A day I will never forget :
That was a wonder and very impressive trip with the great help of our tour guide Olivier Forgive me if the spelling is inaccurate.. The trip was excellently organized by him. From Paris within one day, we visited 3 French castles Ambroise, Chenonceau and Chambord in Loire Valley and enjoyed French cuisine at a very tasty lunch. Olivier introduced us the histories of the castles and of the surrounding areas during the trip and that made the visit even more interesting! We would like to take this opportunity to thank Olivier for his great job and professionalism. Merci beaucoup! We will certainly recommend this tour to our friends.
Not only was the sight seeing good, but our guide was excellent. She did a wonderful job of transporting, informing and assisting us. Her knowledge and her enthusiasm were engaging and her only slight accent made her exceptionally easy to understand, not like some guides who are difficult to understand. I couldn't have asked for more and was not disappointed in any way.
This was fantastic. Our guide, Michelle was very very knowledgable, and passionate. I could not be more pleased.
The tour was well planned and ran smoothly. There were only 4 of us on the van so it was virtually a private tour. We were picked up promptly as promised at our apartment and delivered home in good time. The sites were beautiful and I would do it all again
Wonderful tour. Our guide was Sylvan. He was so kind. My daughter was sick the whole day and she never got out of the van. He was very attentive to her needs. It rained all day on and off but still managed to be a beautiful trip.
Great tour, very knowledgeable and informative tour guide. Fabrise kept us entertained and informed through the the tour. Would highly recommend this tour. Lunch was good also.
Wonderful day trip jam packed with 3 castles in one day. To be honest, one can spend an entire day at Le Château de Chenonceau which was utterly beautiful and had exquisite gardens. The tour began early in the morning at 6am for pick up and was fast paced with a lot of walking if you want to see everything. There were some older ladies, one with a cane, that was in our group of 5, and it was difficult for her to get around although I believe she enjoyed herself with what she was able to see. If you're staying a short while in Paris and want to make a productive day excursion, this tour is fantastic.
Long day but well worth it. Felt there was plenty of time at each castle to appreciate what each had to offer. Great to see that part of the country. Chenenceau was just amazing.
Door to door service and no line-ups. Lunch was very good. Tour guide, Phillipe, was knowledgeable and took good care of us. The three chateaus were very different from each other and so we had a good variety of experiences. Especially liked the way Amboise is built onto a hill and is surrounded by the village. The staircase and roof terrace at Chambord are amazing. And Chenonceau is best of all.....well maintained interiors that showcase the lives of the residents, beautiful fresh flower arrangements in every room, and a well told story of the history of the chateau. This chateau spans the river and has beautiful gardens that are the highlight of the tour.
Fantastic day trip! Would strongly recommend if you have the time to do so and small-group for this day consisted of myself and two other travelers plus our guide...in a sedan...not sure if the groups are always this small - but to me was more like a private tour than a small-group tour
This excellent trip took us to four stunning castles , each of which had its own individual character and history. Our guide Riccardo was informative, personable, and very knowledgeable, and was kind enough to make a quick stop near a fifth castle for me to take a picture. I highly recommend both the tour and the guide!
Had a fantastic day. Only 6 of us on the tour. 6am pick up from our hotel was right on time. Our tour guide told us heaps of information throughout the day. The Chateaux were all amazing particularly Chenenceau. Would have liked a bit more time there but overall great day out!!!
Wow ! This tour is worth doing ! The Chateaus are beautiful . The gardens are equally amazing .
Great tour! Guide was awesome, we enjoyed the quiet respite from the city for a bit. Castles were great and different from each other which provided a good variety.
The tour was GREAT! Our guide, Fabrise (sp?) was the best! It was everything we hoped it would be.
This was a great tour. It takes all day but you get to visit 3 castles. Drove through the Loire Valley with a small group of 7. We visited the castles in Chambord, Chenonceau, and Amboise. All were incredible. The guide/driver told us about each castle before entering and then you explore the castle on your own for about an hour and a half. Our guide, Olivie, was very knowledgeable and nice. Highly recommend it!
The minibus turned up dead on time at our hotel and that was the start of a wonderful day. The three chateaux were magnicent, but the day was made so memorable by Phillipe, the driver/guide. His driving, especially through the Paris traffic at the end of a long day, was safe and efficient. His knowledge of the chateaux and French history was extensive and passed on in an interesting but easy to understand manner. Phillipe soon had the group gelling and by the end of the day we were all friends. Absolutely brilliant, excellent value and highly recommended!
