Marion made the trip very special. She was very knowledgeable, engaged and full of energy, and a great sense of humor.

Our guide, Dimitri, was great. The chateaus were very cool, he gave us a lot of interesting facts, and the private lunch was so nice. Our lunch was prepared by the Countess of one of the chateaus! Our group was small with 7 people. It was also fun getting to talk with them as well. We really enjoyed this tour!

This was one of our best experiences in France. We had a wonderful guide, Marion, who was very welcoming and knowledgeable. She drove us around in a small van, explaining fascinating and detailed history with enthusiasm, answering questions well, and giving us plenty of personal time to roam the castles, grounds, and shops at our own pace. The lunch at a private castle was excellent, and it was fascinating to see that castle, which hasn't been fully renovated, as a contrast to Chenonceau and Chambord. It was an expensive tour, but it was worth it.

I highly recommend the Loire valley chataeu tour. Our tour guide Dimitri was very engaging, entertaining, knowledgeable and made sure everyone was catered for. The chataeu lunch was a highlight.

This tour is perfect if your looking for a relaxing spaced tour that gives you plenty info of the castles but also allows time for you to wonder on your own, a smaller group so you don’t feel like your being herded like cattle, tour guide was the best
