Our Chateau tour, french-workers lunch, wine tasting and Classic car ride could never top the time we spent with Susan and Simon learning about the culture and history of the French. The discussions on local customs while traveling between the historical sites was truly enjoyable. Both Susan and Simon seem to have totally immersed themselves in the history of the region and were exceptional in relaying this knowledge and information to us. We would highly recommend this tour and these guides.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We found the radiator cap and Célestine has been given the once over by our specialist mechanic. He got her up to 120km / hour and pronounced her in excellent health! Thanks for taking the time to review us and all the best to you too. We would be delighted to see you again sometime.

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.
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!
