We recently took a week's trip to France - 4 days in Paris, then were looking for the perfect 3 day excursion to follow-on. We found their link, and they were able to respond immediately with helpful suggestions on how to navigate the train system and provided great suggestions on where to stay and eat. Susan and Simon picked us... More

Our tour guides in the castle regions near Tours were Susan and Simon Walters of Loire Valley Time Travel. From the moment I inquired about tour availability during our dates of stay to assistance with accommodations both Susan and Simon were extremely helpful and always very prompt to answer any questions. They are the ones that initially suggested La Maison... More

My wife and I pride ourselves on putting aside time to write honest, critical reviews of the lodgings, restaurants and tours we experience while traveling. Not all our reviews are positive, as we like to consider ourselves as sophisticated, discerning travelers. However, this is one rare occasion there is really nothing to add to what has been previously written and... More

My husband and I booked a tour with Loire Valley Time Travel in advance of our anniversary trip to France. I chose them because they speak English (our French is not very strong), and the chance to ride in Celestine was a unique opportunity. We toured Château de Chenonceau with Susan as our private guide (she is very knowledgeable and... More

For a special treat, travel through the Loire Valley in an enchanting 1950's restored Citron (Celestine), relax, and let Simon do the driving and Susan delight you with the history of the region and the chateaux you decide to visit. We enjoyed our tour last March visiting 2 chateaux, having lunch with the locals, and visiting a winery. We took... More

Where to begin? Simon and Susan picked us up promptly at our B&B and we were off to the fairytale chateau - Azay-le-Rideau, so beautiful. Susan is the perfect guide, so knowledgable ...so interesting. After lunch in the charming village, we headed to the gardens at La Chatonniere...here again, Susan was amazing in her detailed explanations. We finished up our... More

My day with Simon and Susan was outstanding! Susan spoiled me terribly. I will miss her explanations on such a variety of topics. She is so knowledgeable. It doesn't matter if you want to know about history, costumes, customs, plants, trees, wine, food--and on, and on, and on. She answers questions on any topic in a clear and understandable manner....

We had two very good days with Susan and Simon in the Loire. We enjoyed seeing some special items that make the valley a special destination. Anyone who uses their expertise will see with insight why this is the historical garden of France. A very good time!
