The tour was a great introduction to the Loire Valley. It was also a great intro to Montdomaine, a unique winemaker from the Plou family, which has been producing wine from the 1500s. Montdomaine produces natural wines. The group number was just enough. And Carlos was great, picked us on time.

The tour was rescheduled twice. One of guides had a cold. The drive was in a mini van with 8 people and no way to roll down a window, IT was hot and stuffy . She didn't wear a mask and took everyone's cell phones to take pics. The first stop was Chambord castle which was self guided and fine. The 2nd stop was Ambacia cave for lunch with supposed wine pairing.We walked ourselves through the cave with no guide or education about the caves.The dining staff was not attentive and we got 2 tiny glasses of wine but none delivered with the meal.Certainly no wine pairing.Staff told us nothing about the food or wine. We were sitting there while they waited on other clients. Our Guide knew nothing about the wine or food there.We sat there so long that the rest of tour was rushed and cut short. Next stop was Chateau Montodomaine, where we we stood in one cave and the owners wife who greeted us in lounge clothes ,did some talking about their process.THERE WAS NO WINE GROWING INTRODUCTION AT A VINEYARD.Wine tasting was standing in the foyer of the chateau or their home.Then we didn't have time to tour cellars! Guide missed several driveways, went down a wrong way and also both guides drank wine.Not at all worth over $340 per person. Not at all what was described to us.

We had a fabulous day with Aurelien (Lance)! He is very knowledgeable about wine and the Loire Valley region and very enthusiastic and welcoming. Our lunch and the wine pairings were excellent, as was the visit to the winery. We had fun, drank great wine and learned a lot. Lance also gave us an excellent recommendation for dinner at Bistro S, which was outstanding!. This tour exceeded all our expectations!

This tour was the jewel of our trip to Paris. Just absolutely lovely. Our tour guide and driver Bastien was friendly, charismatic, passionate about wine, and quite knowledgable about winemaking and the Loire Valley itself. The morning kicked off early with a quick stop for croissants and coffee at a boulangerie in Paris before heading out to the countryside. First stop: Chateau de Chambord - we had about 2 hours to explore the site independently, which was just right amount. Then, off to the first winery - Domaine de Montcy, a biodynamic vineyard, for a tour of its cellar and vines. It’s there we met the wonderful Sophie, who showed us around, and prepared a multi-course lunch of local meat, cheeses, seasoned potatoes and more — and, of course, paired the meal with an abundant tasting of their wines. Then, off we drove to the next vineyard through charming narrow village streets and rolling countryside hills to Chateau de Montedomaine for our last tasting. We met the owners Frederic and his wife, who showed us their limestone cave cellars and explained their process of listening to nature for each production cycle. This of course was followed by a tasting in their beautiful home. Overall, this trip was a wonderful experience that I highly recommend to anyone looking to venture outside of Paris for a day to see something new. I embarked on this excursion with family who had only a passing interest in wine, and they left the day with a new passion brewing in their minds. They had a blast! Do not pass this opportunity up, and you’re in wonderful hands if Bastien is your guide.
