Yohan and Jack were amazing. They listened to what we were interested in doing and tailored the experience to be perfect for us. We loved the cycling and winery tour so much we booked a second day to see castles! The picnic lunch was refreshing and filling- with multiple courses including rose, cheese and crème brûlée! In addition to the wineries also got to stop at a historic church on the island where we picnicked. The biking was a great level for us as daily inexperienced riders. Even when we had to detour due to flooding we always felt safe and the pace was always easy.

Having done several different styles of this type of walking tour, I would say that I really liked this one! It was easy to follow and I liked the historical part!! The riddles were simple enough!! Great!!

Great 1hr trip on Loire. Relaxing and informative with a glass of Bulle to enjoy. Light hearted fun.

The tour was in German - great! A really nice paludier with incredibly interesting information.

Hélène was a great guide. Very pleasant and engaging. She knows Nantes very well.
