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.

It was perfectly organized and Marion was a very good guide, very informative with plenty of interesting insights and recommendations. Visits to both castles were very interesting and led in a proffesional way, good spots for pictures and views, right timings to avoid waiting and biggest crowds. Wine tasting was very interesting and we’ve been offered a 37 year old wine to try, nice recommendation for lunch. Strongly recommended!
