    Our first chateau tour begun at Chateau de Chenonceau. It was great. Very well kept garden, beautiful views! Manon, our guide, gave us a great lecture on history and social life of France. We appreciated very much. Second stop was at Amboise! What a great experience. We visited the grave of Leonardo da Vinci! Again very interesting history lecture and cultural experience. We then visited La Close Luce, where Leonardo da Vinci spent his last 3 years. It was an experience that we will not forget. The park was also great. We had a short stop for wine tasting and lunch in between the visits. Thank you for the great time.

    Recommended. Had a very enjoyable day with Cyril on the gorgeous castles, his profound knowledge on the history, the culture and the ppl in the stories! Would like to explore more on the area in next leisure chance. Thank you, Cyril.

    My sister and I went on this tour in early March, during the slow season. We opted for a small group tour because we felt we'd be lost in a larger group. Our tour guide Cyril was very knowledgeable about the histories, art and architecture of these three chateaux, and he also had a great sense of humor, which made the entire day entertaining. Of the three chateaux we visited, Chenonceau was definitely our favorite. We also enjoyed our wine tasting, which was paired with 3 different cheeses from the region!

    The castles, wine and food were amazing and Manon was an awesome tour guide. Loved every minute!

    An excellent day with our guide Cyril who was amusing and very knowledgeable. A very tight schedule meant that it seemed a bit rushed at times and being August, it meant that it was very crowded in some of the very confined spaces. The wine tasting was also excellent and informative and I now know that I should not just neck the wine but savour it!! The group also became firm friends by the end of the day.

    Was very enjoyable even tho' the weather didn't cooperate. Nicholas was very personable and knowledgeable. He could and did answer any questions we had.
