I did the tour on Tuesday, April 2 with Audrey. The castles and the wine tasting was very good. I want to highlight the provision of Audrey, an exceptional guide. I had a problem with the train to get to tour and she was very kind in contemplating this inconvenience. I hope to return to France and be able to go on another trip with the company and Audrey. 100% recommendable!!!
Last week, my mother, sister and I had the amazing holiday during our tour of the Loire Valley.
I would like to personally write to the agency to bring to attention how wonderful our guide Veronique Villalba was.
We started the tour as soon we arrived in Tours - after waking up at 5am to catch the train from Paris - yet because of Veronique's passion and enthusiasm, we were able to forget about our tiredness and focus on nothing but the fantastic castles.
I especially liked how at each castle Veronique made sure that we had free time to wander around and really absorb the grandeur and beauty the castle had to offer. This was only possible due to her amazing schedule and time management - as she was always on time! I would also like to add that she went the extra mile to give us extra information about each castle, their layout and the history of the French royals. Having studied history, my sister and I both found this very interesting.
Overall, Veronique really made our experience a great one and we all enjoyed her company.
I would like to thank the agency for giving us such an amazing guide, and because of this I will be sure to not only recommend the tour to friends, but will likely be taking another tour by France Intense the next time I am in France.
tour molto ben organizzato, la guida Nicholas era davvero simpatica e professionale, e parlava anche un ottimo italiano. Posti davvero incantevoli
More of a new friend than a tour guide, Simon shared his passion for the Loire Valley and its beautiful castles with our small group of 6. Simon's knowledge and humor as he escorted us around was greatly appreciated. He effortlessly switched between Spanish and English, ensuring our entire group got the most out of this experience. The tour itself was well run, we took a day trip from Paris (the TGV ride was fun and easy to book) and SImon returned us with plenty of time to make our return train. The wine tasting was great, my wife was a vegetarian and they created a lunch especially for her and the wine was heavenly. I highly recommend both Simon and the Loire Valley Tours.
Thank you I had such an amazing time. Our tour guide was wonderful. I really enjoyed your tour.
Las explicaciones de la guia muy bien. La degustacion excelente. Dos de los castillos muy linods y uno podria no haberlo visto.
We had a tour yesterday in Loire valley with Simon from a moose to chambord and bloise and cheverny. I wanted to write to thank him. The tour was amazing!! We bought this vacation from a charity auction and your tour was part of the package. Today we did not have a tour and the hotel booked us for the day with another company. It was night and day. My kids were so bored. All day long they just kept saying it would be fun if Simon was there. We are leaving for Paris tomorrow and I wish he could tour us there! He is an exceptional guide and it was a perfect day. We have been around the world and are hard to please!!!
Manon is a lovely person, extremely well informed with a great sense of humour, and a very safe driver.
Also enjoyed Les Caves DuHard with the host Césare.
What a great day we had with our guide Cyril , very informative , humorous & extremely enjoyable. Many thanks.
What a great day! Manon guided us so it wasn't just a walk through the old stones of some of the most beautiful châteaux of the Loire Valley, but a real time travel experience! We learnt a great deal about French history, architecture, royalty and geography.
We had a fabulous time on the tour and we're enjoying our last lunch in Tours before returning to Paris and then London. We left the bikes and equipment with the hotel in Tours.
