Touraine-Chenonceau private tour
"Colin treated us to an amazing day in the Loire Valley! He's unbelievably knowledgeable about the varietals local to the region, is well known to the staff at the vineyards we visited, and even jumped behind the tasting bar at the last one to pour for us since there was a larger group there at the same time. We swapped Chateau D'Amboise (beautiful) for Chenonceau on our tour because it's a bit more relaxed right now in terms of numbers they can admit and Covid related ticketing restrictions and it's just that kind of insight that makes booking a private tour worth it. Colin has excellent taste in wine, a great sense of humor and is just a pleasure to spend the day with. Couldn't recommend booking with him more. One of our favorite days of vacation and we can't wait for the wine we bought to arrive (Colin even organized and handled shipping for us) so we can open a bottle and talk about the wonderful time we had the day we bought it."..."

"We had a private tour of two Châteaux: Chambord and Chenonceau with lunch in between. That was interesting since it was in the caves of a local winery and the lights went out after we sat down. A little daylight and many candles rectified the situation although it was still a bit dim. The owners were very nice, however. The actual tours were very good; our guide Nicolas (not quite sure of the spelling), was marvelous. He is personable and extremely knowledgeable about the chateaux and the surrounding area.

One of the wineries is a 5th generation operation and we met the winemaker and his wife. It was a lovely experience. We stopped for a 3-course lunch in a quaint restaurant that was superb. Our guide and all of the people that we encountered on this tour were cheerful, friendly, and engaging. We cannot thank Franc enough for an experience that we will always remember."..."
