We had a great day with Susan and Simon. They collected us at our hotel in central Tours and introduced us to the gorgeous Claudette. She was extremely comfortable and it was great to be passengers in such a beautiful vehicle. Simon is a great driver and it was genuinely thrilling to drive around the picturesque French countryside (great roads!) in such style and comfort. We visited Loches - the market, the chateau and the donjon - and were expertly guided by Susan. She knows everything! Delicious lunch at a local restaurant followed by a visit to Montresor via a stunning series of villages. Another fascinating history lesson as we learned about the family of the chateau. Finally a visit to a great cave in Rochecorbon, a great family establishment with some unusual and delicious Vouvray. All in all, Simon and Susan are fabulous hosts: they are extremely generous with their knowledge and experience and it feels as if you are travelling with old friends. The four of us had a great day and would thoroughly recommend this exceptional and unusual way of exploring this beautiful part of the world.

A beautiful day spent in this French countryside being driven around in style. Susan is an inexhaustible font of knowledge. The local markets & cuisine are a real treat. The Chateau was gorgeous. Highly recommend this tour for anyone with a day or two available. We did the day trip by train from Paris & it all ran very smoothly being collected at the station by Simon and dropped back there again at the end of the day. Thank you for showing us a little part of your special world.

Wife and I took a 5-day vacation to Paris this summer. We knew we wanted to get out of the city one day and tour the Loire, but we didn't want to go with a group of strangers on a group tour. Found Loire Valley Time Travel Day Tours online and were so lucky we did.

Simon and Susan are about the nicest and most easy-going guides you could ask for. In fact, they were more hosts than guides. Incredibly polite and highly knowledgeable about the area, the history, the people and the culture.

Susan customized our tour...we visited one chateaux, one winery, and then a wine merchant operating out of a cave. Each visit was unique and we enjoyed them immensely.

BOOK THIS SERVICE. You won't regret it.

We really enjoyed our tour with Susan and Simon - and Celestine (the car!). Susan was very informative and they chose the chateaux well. We saw Cheverny (loved the dogs), Fougeres sur Bievre (a medieval fortress) and Chenonceau. We felt like maybe we could have fit in one more chateau during the day. We are not used to such long lunches (which was nice, of course) and thought we might have used some of that time at another chateau.
Nevertheless, we do highly recommend this tour!

Touring the Loire Valley in the classic car was a highlight of our vacation. Simon and Susan were full of information. Lunch at the local spot was great too. Would love to have been able to stay a few more days!
