First off, our driver was amazing. She got us from place to place quickly and carefully and delivered great local and historical tidbits all along the way. We took the four-chateau tour (Amboise, Chenonceau, Cheverny, Chambord) and it made us wish we'd booked more of...More

I've taken many tours in different locations and I always look for value in what a company offers, alongside good reviews. After using Touraine Evasion this is the only company I've ever experienced which I can 100% say DO NOT BOOK WITH. We booked an...More

Until this year, it has not been possible to cruise on the Loire as the river is so shallow that the usual screw-driven cruise boats could not pass. CroisiEurope have just introduced a new paddle steamer, the Loire Princesse, which has a draft of only...More

Hi There, 4 of us saw this war memorial in 2012!! The gardens were lovely, and we were so impressed with the video about the prisoners of war. We were told that we could buy that video back in Australia, and I did contact them, and bought it. However, I really want to watch it again, but CAN NOT find it!! I would love to order it again, but can NOT remember, which Government place I had bought it from. Could you PLEASE let me know, so I can buy it again??? Thank you so much, if you can do that, Tineke Wallace 21 Campbell Street, Safety Beach, N.S.W, 2456, Australia.
