The lunch at the private estate was very memorable but wish some of that time was allocated to our visits of the two main chateaus."

This is our most popular tour, ideal for a day trip from Paris, or those staying locally. You will be treated to a guided tour of the wonderful renaissance palace of Chateau de Chenonceau and its gardens on the banks of the river Cher. The chateau itself contains an unequalled collection of renaissance art and is still privately owned. AOC Touraine-Chenonceau wines can be tasted nearby and a visit to a family wine-maker is always popular. Lunch is enjoyed amongst the locals at a restaurant in Montrichard and is followed by a further tasting of a wide range of Loire wines. Finally, we drive to the winery, vineyards and tasting room of a wine-making family with roots going back 500 years. There will be plenty of chances to buy the wine you taste and they are such good value you will want to send some home to enjoy with friends. We can help with the shipping. This tour is a fascinating introduction to the Touraine region of the Loire Valley, enjoyed by many clients before you.

* A traveler said: "Colin treated us to an amazing day in the Loire Valley! He's unbelievably knowledgeable about the varietals local to the region, is well known to the staff at the vineyards we visited, and even jumped behind the tasting bar at the last one to pour for us since there was a larger group there at the same time. We swapped Chateau D'Amboise (beautiful) for Chenonceau on our tour because it's a bit more relaxed right now in terms of numbers they can admit and Covid related ticketing restrictions and it's just that kind of insight that makes booking a private tour worth it. Colin has excellent taste in wine, a great sense of humor and is just a pleasure to spend the day with. Couldn't recommend booking with him more. One of our favorite days of vacation and we can't wait for the wine we bought to arrive (Colin even organized and handled shipping for us) so we can open a bottle and talk about the wonderful time we had the day we bought it."

* A traveler said: "We had a private tour of two Châteaux: Chambord and Chenonceau with lunch in between. That was interesting since it was in the caves of a local winery and the lights went out after we sat down. A little daylight and many candles rectified the situation although it was still a bit dim. The owners were very nice, however. The actual tours were very good; our guide Nicolas (not quite sure of the spelling), was marvelous. He is personable and extremely knowledgeable about the chateaux and the surrounding area. We highly recommend him."

* A traveler said: "Great, but exhausting tour! There was a total group of 8 in our van and we were driven by Patrick, who was wonderful. Note that there is no guided tour inside the chateaus; they only drive you there. This was fine for us because we enjoyed exploring at our own pace. Also, there is no separate stop for lunch. We were told to grab food at the second chateau."
