Willy was an amazing guide! He took us to Chateaux Chambord which was a beautiful castle. We explored on our own for an hour with helpful audio We were a bit early for lunch so Willy made a surprise stop on the Loire River so we could enjoy the view and taste a bit of champagne. We had lunch at a quaint restaurant where I had the best meal of my life! We continued on to a winery where we toured the cellar & tasted 8 wines. From there we enjoyed a nice ride home. I would do this again!

It was a very nice experience, as a professional photographer I like to take time and look around the area, this trip gave us ample time to look around and all was on time. Loved it .

Very punctual. Enough time for attractions. The bus left something to be desired for cleanliness. The booking process is quick and hassle-free.

Excellent service, they only have to warn you initially that there are no cafeterias open and that it is better to bring something to eat.

It is a visit that lasts 12 hours you have to be decided
