We were spending our 10th anniversary in the Loire valley, and we wanted something special for the occasion. Susan and Simon were wonderful throughout the whole day, and they delivered an unbelievable experience!

We started with a tour of the area with a trip through the countryside to Loches a wonderful city that we wouldn't have done justice. Susan's knowledge of the history and culture is worth the money alone. We had a very nice lunch in a classic French town restaurant, and we went on to Chenonceau. Finally, we closed out with a local wine tasting in the Vouvray region.

I had studied in the south of France in college, and I learned more about the culture and the region then I could have ever expected. Top that with Simon's masterful driving of the classic Citroen and many unique and wonderful experiences that I will leave you to discover on your own adventure with them.

If you are coming in for a short or long visit, I wouldn't pass on this opportunity! If you are only in the Loire for a couple days - this would be perfect right out of Tours, and you wouldn't even need to rent a car (an experience in itself).

When I saw the Loire Valley Time Travel website, it had all the ingredients I was looking for - a gorgeous classic French car ( Estelle), French chateaus and a personalised tour. And we weren't disappointed!. We spent a fabulous half day visiting Chenonceau and a local winery that made sublime wines that we were able to purchase and enjoy later. Simon our chauffeur was a walking encyclopaedia on vintage cars and kept us well and truly entertained. Susan was able to give us a special insight into the Loire Valley, the history of the people and the area and made sure we saw the things that really make such a tour special. They were very helpful in arranging our pickup and drop off from our hotel and really made us feel like Kings and Queens for the day. We highly recommend taking the time to have an authentic Loire Valley Time Travel Tour.

We spent a wonderful day with Simon and Sharon. The are excellent tour guides and great companions. Good sense of humor and know the area, particulary the history, very well. HIghly recommended and definitely worth the money. We took the train from Paris and it was no problem getting there and back. The area is beautiful, many really nice photos to remember it by.

My wife and I spend two terrific days in the Loire Valley with Susan and Simon. They were both gratious hosts and very knowledgable about all the various locations we experienced with them. Susan particularly had a vast knowledge about the history, architecture, art and culture of the area, and Simon was very adept with the spectacular car navigating the backroads of the area. They were punctual both days in meeting us and took us to two terrific restaurants for lunch as well. We highly recommend them for your trip to the Loire.

Simon and Susan were a pleasure to spent a day with in the Loire Valley. This was the highlight of our trip to France and would recommend this tour to anyone thinking of visiting the Loire Valley region. We enjoyed the pace of the trip and how they worked to provide a trip specific for us and our interests. They were very knowledgeable about not only the history of the buildings and the people involved, but also the region in general. It was very interesting being able to get a chance to learn more about the french culture as well.
