Daphne was outstanding; the pacing was superb!

Enjoyed the coffee and pastries to begin, the explanation of the history of Chateau Chenonceau; the lunch made by the countess and tour of her home was uniquely special; and the conclusion in Chambord with wine and snacks was a fabulous conclusion to an extraordinary day. Merci beaucoup Daphne!

Top Notch!

Our guide, Daphne, was excellent in navigating our small group through these chateaus amongst other tour groups much larger than ours. Lunch was just delightful!

Well organized tour, with a great guide, extensive information on the visited sites and a nice lunch at a nice private Chateau.

Our guide did not count his time, He was very invested, very interesting, and knew how to adapt to young and old alike.

A wonderful fairy tale experience

More transportation means from Romania and from Tours to this place would be welcome.
