Chenonceau, above all stands out as the most beautiful of the Châteaux of the Loire as it extends with infinite grace over the waters of the river Cher.

This was a wonderful tour - highly recommended! It's a long day out from Paris but well worth the time. Our guide, Jomar, was great - very knowledgeable, if a big stickler for time! This was somewhat surprising given that we had a completely private tour and that it was just our family that needed to move from site to site. A little more flexibility would have been welcomed. It could have been that he wanted to avoid crowds and traffic, which we did manage to do and were thankful for. We also appreciated that he did leave time for us at the end to visit a wine bar and relax for a few minutes at the end of the day prior to the ride back to Paris. Merci beaucoup, Jomar !
The guide is just a driver. He did not go with us inside the castles. The castles themselves were amazing. I beleive it should be just 2 castles instead of 3. Not enough time to actually relax a bit and enjoy
