Loire Valley Time Travel Day Tours

About Loire Valley Time Travel Day Tours
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. We 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.

Susan and Simon helped us plan and enjoy one of the best tours we have had anywhere. I originally noticed them because Susan is really into gardening and plants - which is a focus for my wife. When I corresponded with her she designed a...More
