What people are saying about Amboise

Tour was amazing, without a doubt one of the best activities of the trip. The van is very comfortable and a great opportunity to discover the French countryside. Lunch was great and in the best restaurant in the town of Amboise. The guide Mr. Magela was always very attentive. The castles and their gardens are really beautiful. We visited 3 castles with an average visit time of 1 hour at home, one of which was certainly not enough but even so the tour (which is not cheap) is very worthwhile.

It was an amazing day going through all thoses castle and listening the histories if those who built them. Furthermore, the guide during this full-day trip was very available and great

Our guide was terrific. The only thing that would have made it better for me was a wine tasting experience. There was wine served at lunch but no explanation of he wine or the region.

Our driver was terrific, and the audio guide was informative. We were there in February, so the crowds were small which was great.

The experience was amazing and the tour guide was great as well
