“Well located”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

This is right opposite the station, the staff were really helpful and gave good advice. They helped us to use public transport and recommend options for trips and visits during our stay. No hard sell just good advice.

“Nice building, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

The tourist office were very helpful online in offering advice on which day trip to the chateaux would be the best choice. However, when we visited in person staff were a little less helpful (no advice on travelling to Blois). There were lots of leaflets on the chateaux, etc. but not many in English on activities in Tours itself.
