A delightful day with Agathe, who was both competent and funny. Just seven of us. Chenonceau was the gem of the day. Lunch delicious, and so nice to be chauffeured throughout. You can take this tour from either Tours or Amboise, depending on where you are staying.

Agathe was absolutely incredible! She had an awesome personality and really great stories about so many things concerning the Château. The wine and cheese that she brought for the
end of our day at Chenonceau was the perfect ending to a perfect day:) I would absolutely recommend this tour!

Our small group tour was amazing! Our guide Lara was fantastic and super thoughtful. She brought us coffee and croissants in the morning and had packed a picnic with snacks to have in the afternoon. Her knowledge of the history of the chateaux was awesome and in-depth and our lunch was wonderful. We had plenty of time at each location and we had engaging conversations during the drive to each location. The tour was one of the highlights of our stay in the Loire Valley. Thank you, Lara, for a wonderful tour - from Christopher and Michael-jon.

This tour was the highlight and the gold standard of our trip. Lara our guide was awesome! She was knowledgeable and friendly and added a lot of lovely little extras to the day to make it special. She gave us lovely little breaks with picnic snacks she had brought with her. Our lunch at the Chateau was lovely, we sat outside in the shade of a lovely old tree and were treated to a delicious meal of local foods. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough, it was fantastic!

First class all the way...Although I imagine Agathe has done this tour a hundred times, she still managed to keep it fresh and interesting. Very nice shaded lunch at a private chateau and a wine/Hors D'oeuvre picnic on the grounds of the Chenonceaux at the end.

Our tour guide, Lara, did an outstanding job from start to finish. She was very personable and full of energy. During our visits to the two chateaux she showed us around, giving the historical background to both chateaux, and making the old stone buildings come alive. Lunch in the private chateau was great fun as well. I highly recommend this tour!
