What people are saying about Château d'Amboise

Very good small group tour. The guide Lilya was also our driver .She was very knlowgeable, helpful and bubbly . She gave us information while driving and at each stop then we were left to explore on our own . It is a pricey excursion so it comes down to personal choice if you want to pay that price just to travel in a mini van with a small group. The company had another mini van doing the exact excursion , we met the other group at each stop. So two vans , two guides/ drivers doing the exact same tour at same time. Seems a bit wasteful to me , a slightly bigger van would cut the costs for the company and the customers . Overall it is a good experience and a day well spent in France

This was a great, simple small group tour from Paris, which is just what we were looking for. The guide only gave us a broad overview of the history of each chateau then left us to wander on our own, which was exactly what we were looking for. The pickup and drop-off at a central meeting point near the Arc de Triomphe went smoothly and the van was comfortable and air-conditioned. If you want an in-depth walking tour of Loire chateaus with an art history expert, this isn't the tour for you, but if you want easy transportation from Paris and quick access for your own tour, all at a reasonable price, I recommend Blue Fox.

This was a very interesting and well organised tour. Our guide new his history and made our visit to 3 chateaus so much more informative and entertaining than if we had visited on our own. It was great to sit back and relax while being chauffeured in a very comfortable bus. The village of Amboise is very quaint with lots of choices for our lunch (not included). I would definitely recommend this tour and especially if you are short on time.

Although the drive is far but the châteaux are well worth your time, especially Chenonceaux. This is the most beautiful château. I wish we have more time here. Amboise château is full of historical events. Biggest Chambord château with amazing double helix stairs with no center support and no meeting point. Amazing!

I take small group tours often ... this was one of the best! Our guide, Lilia, was passionate about the trip and made our journey so much fun. Safe, easy, clean van, well coordiated ... will book with Blue Fox again. Merci!
