A Recent Review of this tour

What a truly delightful day! Charming villages, local history, ancient castles, and wine tasting—what could be better? Oh, the lunch recommended by Benoit and his excellent company. He even dropped our two friends off at the train station. I can not recommend both Benoit and this trip more highly.
