16 yrs ago we did Loire Valley on Parisvision. This time we made arrangements with Accdispo Tours. accodispo-tours.com/english/index-societe.ht… We took the TGV from Paris to Tours where we were met by Pascal. We visited Chenonceaux, Cheverny and Chambord. We thoroughly enjoyed his professionalism, his local knowledge and his sociability throughout the day.
If he proposes to stop for lunch in a small village for lunch be sure to accept. We stopped at a tiny auberge in a tiny village. The propietress was "desole" but she had electrical problems. Even so, she grabbed all her outside tables (3) and toted them across the street so we could lunch in front of the local church. We had a terrific lunch of good food, quiet atmosphere and delightful conversation with Pascal at a place we would never have stopped at on our own.
