It was a small, friendly group. A guide, Marion, very nice and nice. The tour was not tiring, I met two chateaux with interesting explanations by Marion, in English, most of the time. I recommend this tour without hesitation.

Incredible experience! the places overflown in France are magnificent! At times, we take control of our flying machine to pilot ourselves, it's super fun and we're full of sensations! I highly recommend.

A great way to experience the whole France while staying in Paris. Great activity especially for children and teenagers. Our teenage daughters rated it as the best activity we experienced in Paris.

The gardens at Villandry were nothing short of spectacular and we were lucky enough to meet the lady of Château I’Islette, which was a special treat. Great tour!

Wonderful meeting people from other countries and sharing the day and experience with them.
