First rate experience for me and my family. Our guide Daphne was outstanding. Of course the tour of Chambord and Chenonceau are the main focus of this tour, but we really found the visit to the smaller family owned Chateau for lunch to be a very pleasant experience... maybe even the highlight for the day.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

This tour was a fantastic way to see some of the prominent chateau of the Loire Valley. A lot of care was taken by our tour guide Daphne to make sure we were getting out of it what we wanted. The private lunch at the family chateau was incredible and the afternoon picnic at Chenonceau was perfect! This experience exceeding expectations!

We loved, loved this tour, the personal attention was incredible, every detail taken care of, the little extras were superb, including the delightful picnic after Chenonceau. Our guide was so lovely that she didn't mind doing the small extra things like stopping to get my daughters pic in a beautiful field of poppies along the way, she was helpful with any questions asked and very gracious with everything. Thank you Mathilde for a wonderful day!

Incredible tour. They could and probably should charge more for this tour but it is an incredible value and gives you true Loire Chateau experiences. If you are fortunate enough to get Daphne as your guide, she was amazing. First rate service and hosting. Will use/ suggest them again!

Fantastic tour. We visited 3 very different chateaux and all were amazing. Each different in their own way. Our tour guide, Mathilde, was very knowledgeable and extremely personable. I loved the smaller group as you get a better experience than a typical bus tour. We highly recommend.
