What a wonderful day! The bike path along the river Cher was simply idyllic. Chenonceau castle is beautiful and the wine tasting was informative and welcoming. Picking up the bike and the using the navigation app was very straightforward. I was tired by the end; this was a full day activity. I enjoyed dinner in the charming centre of Amboise.

This tour was wonderful. It was great to have a small group and Agethe made it both interesting, enjoyable and a touch of the “real” France. Loved the two castles and lunch at the private castle was delicious. Thank you to Agethe. Highly recommend this tour.

This tour was truly one of the highlights of our trip! From the French pastries and coffee in the morning, to the incredible private chateaux lunch, to the wine and chocolates at the end of the day - with two gorgeous chateaux in between - it was a perfect day. Lara was not only very informative; she also made the day fun! If you are traveling to the Loire Valley, we would highly recommend this tour.
