The tour was very well organised and a most interesting experience. We were picked up on time from the Loire Tourist Office in Tour, and taken on a picturesque drive to our first stop at the Alain Robert vineyards. We were met there by the wife of the owner who gave us an interesting insight into the growing and harvesting cycle. We then went up to the higher vineyards and sampled Vouvray wines in the beautiful countryside; wonderful! Next we went on to see the bottling process. Finally we visited the labyrinthine limestone cellars of the Bredif winery; an amazing experience! Our guide from the winery gave us a well informed and entertaining tour, which culminated in a wine tasting accompanied by tasty snacks. The 4 hour tour exceeded expectations and made us feel that we would like to spend more time exploring this region and it's wonderful countryside and viniculture.
Enjoyed the coffee and pastries to begin, the explanation of the history of Chateau Chenonceau; the lunch made by the countess and tour of her home was uniquely special; and the conclusion in Chambord with wine and snacks was a fabulous conclusion to an extraordinary day. Merci beaucoup Daphne!
Well organized tour, with a great guide, extensive information on the visited sites and a nice lunch at a nice private Chateau.
More transportation means from Romania and from Tours to this place would be welcome.
very well organized activity and the different guides are very cool
