This was a very enjoyable trip. We saw there were trips which stopped at 3 chateaus but only stopping at two gave more time to view the chateaus. It was our belief that stopping at 3 would be too rushed. Our guide was excellent. We would highly recommend this not only to see the chateaus buy also to view the countryside. It is a drive but well worth it. The lunch was way beyond expectations. Really good food.

This was a really nice trip albeit long. Our guide was excellent. She did a great job of doing English and Spanish. It was a long trip back to Paris but totally worth it. Lunch was ok.

Prepare for a long day, but one well worth it. Most of the time is spent travelling on a very comfortable bus, the the two chateaux are remarkable. Chenonceau is a jewel and Chambord, the largest of all of the chateaux in the Lorie Valley, is breathtaking in it size and design. It was quite eerie as there is virtually no furniture in it, and your footsteps echo throughout.

The road was a little long but comfortable. The guides were very kind, helpful and instructive. The visit to Chenonceau was the best. Chambord is less impressive but the wine tasting was excellent

This bus ride was very comfortable and they do a 1/2 stop on your way to use the bathrooms and get some snacks. Both chateaus are gorgeous and Francois was very nice and knowledgeable. He did this tour in English and Japanese.
