Pleasant and organized guide. Efficient check in, driver, and clean bus.
This was a good tour. The guide was very professional and knowledgeable. The bus was comfortable and clean. The driver was also professional as well as helpful and considerate.
Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable on the history and it was such a pleasure to listen to the tour. perfect amount of time in each tour I highly recommend it !
They paired me with a tour guide who was knowledgeable and excellent. Great personality and open to my many questions
Again I want to say that our guide was the jewel in the crown. Her knowledge of the two places and her empathy with Nicolas, the first owner made our visit- you felt connected to the people and their lives- so not just another beautiful place
Loved our guide! What a wonderful personal touch she added to the day.
Both Chateaux(s) were beautiful and lived up to expectations, most especially Vaux. Our guide gave the small non-audio group great insight into the history of both places. I recommend that people take the guided tour.
