The tour was very fun and informative. The castle was a treat to explore, especially with the audio guide with an iPad. The architecture was gorgeous. Our guide, Bastien, was knowledgeable about wines and full of energy. We enjoyed the tour of the winery with the limestone cave storage. That was neat. We even had some wine shipped home.

Bastien was our guide and was great. Very informative as he received his Masters degree studying wine as that is his passion. Lunch was fantastic with Sophie as our host at the wineyard. Long day but after drinking lots of vine and having such nice travel partners in the van, we had a nice ride home. Definitely a must!

This was a wonderful day. Simon, our guide, was warm and engaging, helpful and entertaining. The winery and the restaurant where we dined for lunch were both welcoming and informative. Chateau de Chambord was yet another reminder of the extremely opulent lifestyle of the Royal elite in a bygone era. We highly recommend this tour. Ask for Simon!
