This was an excellent tour. The stop for lunch was fantastic and we had excellent wine there. The other two main stops were beautiful and well worth the visit.

Both of the Chateaux we visited were impressive. Our guide Victor was knowledgeable but provided too much information for the casual visitor. It was warm and we wanted to see more of the Chateaux and hear less of the detailed history of numerous French kings and their mistresses. There was a wine tasting at the end of our second tour. It became very confusing when Victor instructed us to meet on the first floor which to American is the lowest floor. For the French this meant the second floor and we had many trips up and down many stairs trying to find the location of the wine tasting. Bus trip was fine and we did see many small villages.

Great stories! We learned a bit of history and saw two beautiful castles/Châteaus. As other reviewers have said, skip the wine tasting. It’s not that great. Spend the extra 20 minutes exploring the maze or gardens.
