My cousin and I loved the trip. Our guides (John and Adiola) were passionate, knowledgeable and entertaining. The visit to the Castles felt a little rushed (especially because we got lost and to sprint back to the bus) but they were incredibly beautiful and the history shared by the guides made them that much more special. Lunch and wines were delicious and every person who greeted us was great. I did the tasting and chenanceau while my cousin went to the maze. What a fantastic experience.
The arrival at the meeting point was confusing as the tour guides were on the coach and the premises were full of people milling round not knowing what the reception plan was! The visit coach ride and the tour were brilliant - excellent guide in Nioele who was patient, knowledgeable and had great translation and language skills. Recommend this visit even in the rain as we had.
The tour guide Clair was great and passionate about the history of the castles. We visit 3 Château the first and third were magical. I wish we had more time For the last one. We got free time and it was good. The second castle was okay. The lunch was very simple. I was hoping for a bit better. The wine in the second and third castles were delicious!!
Fred was a fantastic guide and patiently answered all our questions, which stretched the tour for nearly an hour longer than planned. He is well-informed, witty and engaging. We learned a lot about the cemetery, French history and many other topics.
This was a wonderful tour of both Giverny and Versailles with seemingly perfect timing being first in the doors for the opening of the Gardens and missing most of the crowds that grow throughout the day.
