What people are saying about Tours, France

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.

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!

Chateau & even more the gardens, the location....amazing! L'Islette and picnic also very nice!

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

Nice guided tour, with time to fully appreciate both sites
