  • This tour was so incredible with just another gal on the tour with me. I can say with all certainty that Château petit Du Thoars was so incredible and the intimacy of being shown the property by the owner Sebastien and just one other person was just too cool! Really great wine and beautiful views!

  • This tour was lovely, and our guide was charming.

  • Agathe, our guide, was delightful. She was attentive and very well informed. Our wine tasting, chateau visits, and walk around Chinon were all highlighted by her detailed and entertaining antidotes. I would highly recommend this charming and personal wine tour!
