Tour: #24044, Two days in the Loire Valley, Touraine, Centre, France    view tour
Date: Sep 2/16

Susan is extraordinarily knowledgable about the history and art of the chateaux and towns we visited. She also put together a unique and special itinerary to suit our interests. Our favorite things were the special places that she showed us, such as the market, the goat cheese producer and the winery that we would never have been able to find on our own. She did an excellent job listening to our wishes and setting up a wonderful two day visit to see all these things.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for your kind words and for taking the time to submit a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your tour. I enjoyed working with you.

Susan was very knowledgeable and friendly! We loved our tour in The Loire Valley! She also took us to a fantastic local lunch spot. Our dinner at Chez Bruno in Ambroise recommended by Susan was the best meal we have had on our trip to France!!!! We highly recommend Susan as a tour guide!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Good to hear Chez Bruno was a success. I really enjoyed showing you and Ed a little bit of the Loire Valley.

Susan and Simon were absolutely amazing. They helped me plan the perfect proposal for my fiance even after rain ruined the initial plan. The meals we got with them were great and the sights and information learned made it one of the most memorable tours of my life. I would love to tour with them again and I hope all the best for their future tours to come.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Ryan, for taking the time to review us, we really appreciate it. We wish you two a long and happy life together (and that dream job :-) )

Tour: Touraine Loire Valley Wine Tour, Tours, Centre, France
Date: May 29/15

We were a group of 24 which was rather more than Susan was used to, however not only was she invaluable in the planning stages, but she soon became very much a friend to us all. It is wonderful to see an area through the eyes of someone who is enthusiastic and loves it.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Indeed, I normally have small groups of 2-4 people, so 24 was a challenge. I enjoyed working with you and valued your support during the tour. I learned a lot and would be delighted to see you all again in the Touraine Loire Valley one day.

After a few days in Paris, it was refreshing to spend the day with native English speakers. Susan and Simon are very easy to spend time with, seemed like old friends. My husband and I are very interested in history. Susan's expertise in Cheverny and Chenonceau was impressive. We have a great day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm so glad you enjoyed the day. We really enjoyed meeting the two of you.

Simon and Susan were excellent guides to the part of the Loire Valley we were able to visit. Susan's knowledge of the area was exceptional and a great bonus. Simon was also very helpful with local knowledge . We were given options for meals and some activities which we appreciated. We enjoyed their company and their expertise. We were truly over Chateaux by the end but know that was because of our choice. Had we realised I have no doubt Simon would have adjusted the tour to better suit our taste.

Tour: #3796, Chateaux of the Loire, Touraine, Centre, France    view tour
Date: Aug 16/11

The tour was designed to accommodate the fact that we were staying in Chinon, so pick up and drop off was from this delightful Medieval village. We visited two very different Chateaux, Montpoupon and Chenonceau, had a wonderful "local's lunch"' and visited a winery for a wine tasting and guided tour of the workings. The two Aussies making up the team of driver and guide were very knowledgeable and being Aussies ourselves, we enjoyed the tour immensely. Celestine, the vintage Citroen was also a star.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Noel. It was great meeting you - I hope the rest of your trip runs smoothly!
