My husband and I recently traveled with two other couples and their children to a small town outside of Sancerre for a friend’s 50th birthday. I knew I wanted to do something special for her on her special day and was so thankful to find Colin. We knew that touring a bunch of

Happy New Year and thank you for this delightful Trip Advisor review. A private, in-house (or chateau, in your case) tasting is not a common event for us but one which I am keen to do more of; I hope to write a new page to feature on the Loire Valley Wine Tour website shortly. The challenge I set myself was to try to represent the many diverse wines of the whole of the Loire Valley in a single tasting: impossible really, but we had a good go! White, red and rosé, sweet, dry and sparkling were all opened for the evening. Our 20th October Facebook post shows the full range of wines we brought over and I was pleased to raid our cellar for you. Wines came from the length of the region, from Atlantic coast Muscadet in the far west to Pouilly Fumé in the east, and most points in between. I enjoyed the experience and I'm glad you did. Next time we will try to fill in the gaps for you.

This was easily one of our most memorable days in our entire trip to France. Colin is a wonderful guide to the Loire Valley and one of the most genuine and kind individuals you'll ever meet. We only did a half day tour and wish we did a full or more - we'll be back! Colin

I have only just realised you gave us such a splendid review but I just had to take the trouble to thank you for it. TripAdvisor reviews are so important for our business so we are very grateful indeed. I am blushing from the generous things you had to say about your tour and about me as your guide. We would just like also to wish you a happy, peaceful and fulfilling Christmas and hope to welcome you back to the region very soon.

This tour was definitely a great value. We were two couples who took the 1/2 day tour together. We booked it solely based on the description and reviews we found on line and were delighted with our choice. First, Colin is absolutely delightful to hang with. He really made us

Thank you so much for both for touring the vineyards of the Loire Valley with me, and for your heartwarming comments in this review. I have the day off today for my birthday treat, but I can't wait to get back to my clients! I hope you have the opportunity to come to the Loire Valley again, and will be ready for more adventures with us in the not too distant future. Colin

We, an American couple visiting the region for the first time, had the most amazing visit to the Loire Valley with Colin as our wonderful guide! The short version of this review is that we cannot recommend it highly enough, do not hesitate to book! Colin spent the full day with

I often ask if clients would write a review for us on TripAdvisor and sometimes they do, but this was well above and beyond the call of duty! Thank you so much for the time and trouble you put into your comments after your recent tour. A very comprehensive and flattering review for which we are very grateful. We are passionate about our adopted home here in the Loire Valley and delighted to have the opportunity to show it off to American clients. There is so much more to see and I look forward to the next time you come to visit.

Colin was the perfect guide for us...an American couple visiting the Loire Valley for the first time. We found him because our daughter had recommended him after her good experiences with his tour. Colin’s good sense of humor, top notch knowledge about both the history and the
