Gorgeous! These palaces are no Versailles, but they are just as interesting and beautiful. We weren't blessed with great weather, but the tour was extremely interesting, the guides were great, the lunch delicious and the bus comfortable. I definitely recommend this tour!Reviewed by: Loren M, January 2013
This trip was enjoyable and informative. the tour was extremely well run and the guides were wonderful. This trip is about 12 - 13 hours though so be prepared for it to take up the entire day.Reviewed by: DIANE K, January 2013
I highly recommend this tour! The castles were all very different and quite beautiful. A word of warning, it is cooler in the Loire Valley than in Paris and Chambord in particular is cold, so dress warmly! The content of the material presented and the castles were wonderful. My only disappointment is that we were in the Spanish and English group so the time was split between each language. I think this took away a bit from the tour and slowed us down a bit on the tour, but regardless, would do it again!Reviewed by: Patricia G, November 2012
The trip to the Loire Valley Castles was excellent. The 3 tour guides on the bus were all extremely helpful. Christine, the English speaking guide was very friendly and her knowledge of the area and the history of the places we visited was incredibly good. I liked the idea of the audios that we were given as it meant we could still hear her without being in close proximity. The lunch that was provided was delicious and served efficiently.Reviewed by: Sylvia G, November 2012
The tour guide was wonderful, very knowledgeable and very personable. It was a LONG day, nearly 13 hours but definitely great to get out of the city and see more of France than just Paris. The chateaux's and the countryside are gorgeous.Reviewed by: L M S, November 2012

We have been to Paris a number of times and this trip we promised ourselves to do something different outside of the city. The tour to the Loire Valley and Castles was not a disappointment, it was fantastic. The three Chateaus were beautiful and each one very different so if you are thinking see one see them all, then you would be wrong.
It is a great way to visit another part of France without the hassle of trying to hire a car and drive yourself. The day trip passes through lovely little villages so you also get to see how the real French peoples live. All in all, a fabulous experience, thank you Viator.
The Loire Valley Trip was excellent! The tour guide was knowledgeable and personable. Our bus was modern and very clean. The meeting place was central in Paris. We enjoyed every part of the day.Reviewed by: Nancy Ann P, October 2012
