"Colin was amazing! Best Day in France! He was knowledgeable and friendly. We tasted our way through a small portion on the Loire valley. Great wine! My only complaint was that we didn't have enough time! I wish we would have stayed longer. Absolutely do his tour if you plan to come to the Loire valley. Worth every penny!
Thank you Colin!"

"We spent an incredible day with Colin touring wineries and chateaus in the Loire Valley. We got to see so much in one day and this was all because of Colin's planning. The winery visits gave is wonderful insight into winemaking in the Loire Valley. We got to attend local town events that were so personal and warm. What a great way to get to know the region! Colin's energy and knowledge really made the trip special."
