This tours was a great sampling of some Loire Valley highlights! I loved how much we saw; it was really packed with activities. Kind of pricey, but it was worth it with how much we saw, plus the small tour group size. The only thing I wish was different was for the tour to be longer. I would've loved an extra 30 minutes at each Chateau to take a walk around the gardens and see some of the exterior features of the place. The current tour structure is pretty in/out quickly, and I would've liked to see more of these beautiful places.

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.

Beautiful

So glad I booked this experience for Terry and I, easy to book, good correspondence throughout. Our guide Marion was so friendly, full of information of the Chateau's we visited, which can only be described as beautiful. Enjoyed the winery tour and wine tasting. Overall a great day and met 3 lovely ladies from the States.
