Get Your Guide provides an excellent one day experience

Our experience on this one day tour of the Chateau region was outstanding. A little pricey as tours go, The guide that took us out for the day, Vincent, was excellent. Our group was English language and Vincent, who grew up in the region, was able to communicate very well and answer our many questions. He was an example of someone who takes his job seriously and has done much studying about French history as it relates to the Castles. This made our experience very interesting and Informative. He has a great personality and knows how to make the day enjoyable. This tour also included a wonderful hot luncheon meal at a local cafe! I highly recommend France Intense and Get your Guide.

The pick up point was in a convenient location to the train and left on time as the day was carefully scheduled to include two major chateaux, lunch and a wine tasting. Our guide, Nicholas, was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Everything went very smoothly and enjoyably.

The tour and guide were excellent. The only thing to note is that the lunch at the restaurant was not great. Would have preferred a simpler meal (like a cheese and meat plate) rather than a full sit down meal at a restaurant that caters to tours.

We appreciated the experience of our tour guide Martine. Our tour to Chenonceau, Chambord, & lunch and wine tasting were delightful!

Marina was our guide and she was wonderful! So full of knowledge and very pleasant. Highly recommend.
