      Fabulous day with an amazing guide!
      This tour was great and Marion is one of the best tour guides I’ve ever had! While the locations on the tour are beautiful and very interesting, Marion’s knowledge was what made the day perfect for me. She is truly an expert in the region, the sites, and all the French history that goes with it. I loved how she told the stories of the sites and I felt much more informed than the other tour groups and the audio tour individuals we passed. It was a truly wonderful tour and Marion is a rockstar!

      Highlight of my trip
      I have been a Francophile since about the age of 10. (I’m 60 now). It was at my current age that I made my first trip to France. Since the first time I ever saw a photo of the Chateau at Chenonceau, I have been semi-obsessed. It was with this personal history that I booked a custom private tour of the chateaux in the Loire Valley. I had a months long back and forth correspondence with Andrea in the office. Not only was she very patient with my pestering but steered us away from my overly ambitious desires. We were very fortunate to have Jean-Georges as our guide for the 2 chateaux we toured. Before our tour, I wrote to him to make clear what we were interested in learning. He rose to the occasion and absolutely delivered what we wanted. We learned so much about French/European history, the history of the chateaux, the design and architecture, and the context behind the families who owned and lived in them. He held our interest the entire day. He also gave us recommendations and information on other chateaux that we then went to visit on our own. It was definitely pricey but during our tour we were glad to have spent the money. Watching all the other tourists read from their pamphlets trying to understand what they were seeing only reinforced the fact we had made the right decision to book a private tour, custom designed for us. Our experience with the company, and our subsequent tour with Jean-Georges was the highlight of my 2 weeks in France.

      Great visit to the Loire region
      I usually like doing visits by myself, but on this occassion I took the tour because the castles are not that close to one another and I did not want to rent a car. Im so glad I did it, the visit to the castles wouldn't have been as interesting as they were with all the history and anecdotes so well conveyed by our tour guide Marion. She was excellent, with all the knowledge and added good storytelling to make it interesting, as well as very nice. The castles were incredible and the experience at the cave with luncheon there was very nice. Everything was on time and I had a great time. I definately recommend it.

      A little less guiding would make this tons better
      The chateaux were incredible but don’t expect to actually see much. You’re held captive by the longest stories ever (and honestly with quite a lot of foul language so don’t bring your kids or your mom). Often these stories are told in the most boring rooms, with one informational sign and nothing else to look at — so you’re forced to just stand in one place, staring at your guide demonstrating different types of bows. The wine tasting was fine, but it’s a cave staff member and not the tour guide so maybe that’s why.

      A perfect day out!
      Marion, as a history major, was able to provide in-depth knowledge of the history and stories from each chateaus. Marion was friendly and kind and helped us every step of the way. We appreciated being driven and led quickly into the chateau’s in the express entry. A wonderful day out with lots of knowledge and memories made. Thank you !Marion. You were the star of the show!

      Horrible Experience
      Absolutely horrible experience. Guide used all the time to tell stories did not let us see the entire Chateaux’s. Guide took all the time up telling stories on specific rooms and gave us no time to see the rest. When we’d try to look into another room he would say no don’t go there. Chambord we only seen 1/2 the Chateaux and had 5 minutes to see the gardens. For Chenonceau the guide took over 70 minutes telling stories and left was with under 20 minutes before closing to rush and try and see the rest. We didn’t even get to see the balconies. And to cap it all off we were over 90 minutes late on the return and missed our dinner reservations. Definitely not worth the money!!

      Unique Private Guided Tour to 3 Amazing Wineries
      Our tour guide really made our day. He picked us at the hotel, was very friendly and professional. He made sure we had a great time and was very knowledgeable of all the places we visited. On a side note, we forgot our camara at the mini van after the tour was over and our tour guide brought it to us, super honest guy!! Would highly recommend to anyone interested in seeing unique places and learning about wine.

      Awesome tour
      We have traveled extensively and can say that our tour guide Christian was one of the best we have ever had. He was not only extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture of the area, but was very funny with engaging stories.

      French castles, wine and history
      Our tour was led by Christian —a vet who served in the war in Iraq. What a great guy!! He was an awesome and colorful storyteller who shared a plethora of knowledge about the chateaus and French history. He went the extra mile to ensure that we were comfortable (in the shade when possible, bathroom breaks and cold water). We had a wonderful time and highly recommend this tour with Christian.

      Wonderful
      Raphael, our guide, was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable about the history of the monarchy and of the castles. She was very pleasant and friendly. The wine tasting and the lunch, both included, were fantastic. We would definitely take this tour again.

      A perfect day!
      This was an excellent experience. This history provided on the tour was entertaining and informative. The wine stop was a fun break and having lunch with my fellow tour participants was also a great experience. I was a solo traveler and assumed I'd be the odd one out, but our tour ended up being three solo travelers and it was a great opportunity to connect. Highly recommend this tour!

    I had an excellent time on this tour of the Loire Valley. Lea, our guide, was exceptional. She had tons of information and stories to make the tour even more interesting than it already was. The Loire Valley is truly beautiful and has a rich history.

    We took the train from Paris to Tours, and met the tour group there. Our guide, Audrey, was knowledgeable, bubbly and great company. We thoroughly enjoyed the day with just one caveat: the lunch was very ordinary - a little pile of tagliatelle pasta noodles, mashed pumpkin (squash) and tough pork medallions/steak with mushroom sauce, dessert was better - and not up to the standard of the rest of the day.
