Description: The owners of Loire Valley Time Travel are originally from Australia, and...
The owners of Loire Valley Time Travel are originally from Australia, and toured the world before settling in France and deciding to share their love of the Loire Valley with visitors. On all of our tours Simon drives the classic cars, while Susan shares her wealth of knowledge about the Loire's history, way of life and natural environment. We provide custom private tours of the Loire Valley, traveling in our classic French 1953 Citroen Traction Avant, and we try to make a day with us like having a day out with friends. We visit the grand chateau you have always dreamed of seeing, stopping along the way at small overlooked sites that can range from WW2 memorials to ancient ruins and troglodyte caves.

This was our first trip to France and we couldn't have asked for better tour guides through the Loire River Valley! Susan really knows her stuff! Enjoy a 9 hour tour through the countryside discovering beautiful gardens, amazing chateaus and incredible wines. Simon is polite, hilarious and a superb driver!

We booked a 1 day tour with Time Travel Tours and it was absolutely the highlight of our trip. Susan and Simon were an absolute delight. They were beyond helpful during the planning process and even gave me additional information regarding my stay that was unrelated to the tour. Susan was very informative and made the tours interested. I highly... More

We booked a 2 day tour with Susan & Simon in their beautiful vintage car and they went out of their way to plan an itinerary that accommodated what we wanted to see. The wine farms we visited were well planned & they made sure we had a good spread of farms over the two days. Susan was also well... More

Simon and Susan picked us up at la Maison Jules promptly at 9 am in the beautiful Claudette. After visiting the Chateau Chenocceau for two hours we ventured out for lunch, more local style French food. Also visited and toured the mushroom caves nearby. After travelling around we visited a couple of wineries and had wine and cheese pairing....yum! Simon... More

Susan was very helpful when we organised this tour from Australia and gave me lots of useful information and, reading all the wonderful reviews on tripadvisor, I was really looking forward to an amazing day. Sadly, maybe Susan and Simon had a bad day but we really didn’t enjoy the time we spent with them when they were both together.... More

This was quite simply the most fantastic two days in the Loire Valley. Susan and Simon picked us up from La Maison Jules - more about this lovely place later, and gave us two days of driving around the Loire valley in their gorgeous 1935 Citroen. They took us to the big sights, Chenonceau, Loches, Azay le Rideau and Villandrey,... More

Susan and Simon of Loire Valley Time Tavel had prepared a wonderful day for us, visiting a mushroom cave and several wine producers (where we could taste without restriction since we had... More

I concur with all the positive comments of previous reviewers. Susan and Simon provide a wonderful day tour of key sites in the Loire Valley. Susan is a very special guide. She combines an in-depth knowledge of the places that we visited with a story-teller's gift to make history come alive. The classic Citroen that we toured around in is... More

My wife and I did a day trip from Paris in April. Susan was prompt to reply and very accommodating to our schedule. The instructions on how to purchase train tickets and arrive for the tour couldn't have been better. We had a great time visiting 3 Chateaus, a great lunch and a great explanation of the history of the... More

We spent two days touring the Loire Valley with Susan and Simon - husband and wife team. Simon did the driving of Celestine, a classic Citroen limo. Susan really knows her stuff. She gave us thorough and excellent tours of chateaus, wineries and the countryside.They even stopped so that we could view a prehistoric site in the middle of a... More
