Very professional tour with lovely coach, the drivers and guide all very nice. Very imformative and some free time tooa86;A039; The chateaux are unmissable!
I would especially like to thank the team on my tour as I left my handbag in the tea stop on the way to Loire Valley which was of course so upsetting. The driver rang back to the cafe, they found it and held it safely for me and specially stopped on the way back to Paris so I could retrieve it - so kind and concerned because I was so embarrassed.
Would definitley use this company again

he tour was well organised and fitted a lot into each day, without us feeling rushed. We felt that the tour covered the key chatea...ux, and the guided tour commentaries were of uniformly high quality. The overnight accommodation was excellent (far better than I expected). more
