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.
