Not only did I learn something, but the tour guide was terrific. I wanted to hear more . It was a very pleasant day spent with the guides. I would recommend this to any one who is going to Europe.

Daniel and Adam were great guides. We visited 3 chateaus, varying in size. The highlight of the day, although it was all wonderful, was the winery and lunch. The lunch was a fantastic meal and we even bought a few bottles of wine SO CHEAP to take back home. Best part of our Paris trip. Each chateau only has a short amount of "free" time after the tour of the main points, so if you want a lot of time at each this might not be the right tour. It was perfect for us as we wanted to see a lot in a short time.

This trip was fantastic. We had a great tour guide who told us facts as we went along the road. It is a 2 1/2 hour trip. You meet across from the subway stop so look for the bus as there are a few exits . The wine tasting was a big treat as it was sunny and a gorgeous day. The dinner was good and the wine was delicious. You can also buy wine to take home for 5e a bottle. There was also wine tasting at the chenonceau . The chateau and wine was great along with some beautiful gardens.

Great Trip. A lot of time in the bus, but it was worth it. We had two great guides Paulina and Adam - both very nice and knowledgeable. People were divided into two smaller groups, we were assigned to Adam and he absolutely charming, funny and provided us with very many interesting facts from the French history. Castles are captivating, the history behind them so interesting. I took many great pictures. September is the month to visit France. We had great sunny days, mild temperatures, comfortable nights. Visit at the Vinery was a great addition to the trip. The owner was extremely friendly (and funny), hot lunch was good, chicken, great local cheeses, fresh apple tart for desert ... and the vine - plenty of it to taste and even to buy at a very reasonably price. We took a bottle home with us, to US.

Great tour, wonderful chateaus, lunch and wine tasting excellent. A very long day... But worth it!
Tour guides excellent. Would have liked longer time to linger at Chenonceau, but I understand that time is limited on these group tours.
