What people are saying about Amboise

On December 29, I went on an excursion in the Loire Valley to the two interesting and picturesque castles: Chenonceaux and Chambord. Along the way, our guide told us in detail and entertainingly about these castles and about the role they have played in the history of France. We had lunch in a restaurant at a vineyard, where wine tasting was also planned.

These chateaus are an absolute must see. Charles was a great guide who is super knowledgeable about some of the lesser known (and, for me, more interesting) things about the chateaus and the people who lived and worked there. Lunch at Les Caves Ambacia was a really pleasant surprise as well.

Our guide was awesome! We very much enjoyed our day exploring the chateaus. The wine tasting was also good. Would highly recommend.

Good guide, worth it to have the stories, history, and context for the Chateaus instead of just wandering around ourselves.

Very professional, efficient and interesting, not too long for children
