Mont st michel good, guide had poor English skills and turned away from the hand held mic all the time so you only heard a third of what she had to say, when approached she said it was the best she could do. This tour also has lots of stairs and we had people with issues and the guide just left them behind, for the more abled to help which really wasn't our 'job'. Changed guides in the afternoon for the chateaux which was good she was very clear and very good English and wore a head mic. Still didn't deal with people with issues or who were lateconstantly accomodation was variable, not a fan of 60cm single beds! Couples got much better rooms than singles.meals were bland and uninspiring. Most of the chateaux were good except for Chambord which was not of the same quality, and has not really been renovated ok if you are into turrets. Villandry gardens were amazing.

Our guide .on the first day, I had forgotten his name, but was great and ensured we were well informed of the monastery. On the last 2 days Elina was amazing. She was made me feel as if we were a family of closely related people and not strangers. She gave me so much insight of a caring person who really enjoyed our company as well. She was most informative, knowledgable and had appropriate answers to any questions. At concluding I felt that she was sad to see our trip end even though the traffic back to Paris was horrendous. 4 hours for 150ks. Thank you for a great trip.

Local tpur operator, Cityrama, was a little ovetrwhelmed with all the morning tours departing at the same time and did little to inform or assure passengers thougj they did manage to sort it all out and depart only 10 minutes late. Mont St Michel was a wonderful venue, despite the long drive from Paris. Lunch was disappointing though. Might be a good idea to let people know the level of physical agility required. Guide (Pascale) really brought a lot of interest to the tour. Following 2 days in the Loire was mixed. Could've done without the entire 1st day itinerary and swapped it for a winery tour and a tour of a Troglodite village. Day 2 with the 3 chateaux however was great. In general, it was a little annoying to have the constant commentary being translated into 4 languages. Smaller groups of same language might help?

My partner and I really enjoyed the tour, and it was a nice change of pace from the self-guided sightseeing we usually do. Our guide was Adrien, a historian who was very knowledgeable about the sights we visited. He was also very friendly and pitched information in an accessible way. The tour itself was well-organised and we visited a lot of places. We got free time to wander around every major stop, and while you could always spend more time, it was enough for a taste and didn't feel rushed. The accommodation was comfortable both nights and the food was generally good and generous. Fussy eaters may be frustrated by a fixed menu.
