This was a great, simple small group tour from Paris, which is just what we were looking for. The guide only gave us a broad overview of the history of each chateau then left us to wander on our own, which was exactly what we were looking for. The pickup and drop-off at a central meeting point near the Arc de Triomphe went smoothly and the van was comfortable and air-conditioned. If you want an in-depth walking tour of Loire chateaus with an art history expert, this isn't the tour for you, but if you want easy transportation from Paris and quick access for your own tour, all at a reasonable price, I recommend Blue Fox.

What a fun and exciting place! There is so much room to spread out and get out of the crowds with plenty of shade in this gorgeous park setting. We parked near ‘entrance 2’ and went straight in with our skip-the-line vouchers through a separate entrance. We paid 3,80 after half the day, btw. Delicious gelato down the steps below the castle helped keep our blood sugar up! Eventually, we toured the castle where Leonardo Da Vinci lived. The life-size models of Da Vinci’s inventions were fun and the museum of his architect has a clean toilet as you enter this marvelous exhibit! One of our best days yet!

Unbedingt besuchen! Leonardo Da Vinci hat im Schloss Clos Lucé seine letzten Lebensjahre verbracht.Sehr interessant ist das Museum mit seinem Atelier!!! Der Da Vinci Park ist wunderschön angelegt. Einen kleinen Fußmarsch entfernt befindet sich das schöne Chateau Amboise. Man hat von hier oben einen wunderbaren Ausblick.Das Chateaui ist ebenfalls umgeben von einem schönen Park mit Da Vincis Grabstätte.

Fantastic experience. Was very well done and very pleasant people working there. Truly enjoyed the experience.

We learned a lot about French history and had a great time
