From Paris, the Loire valley is only 42 minutes away by high speed train. The Loire river is the longest wild river in France. The Loire Valley is also the home of  some of the most beautiful castles in France. The kings of France selected this area for its beauty, weather, and quality of life. We call it the “garden of France”. What we are proposing is a real human and sensorial  experience. You will meet face to face with small independant  winemakers of the Loire Valley. We will explore the lesser known villages and taste some great food. Because our very small groups: minimum of 2 maximum of 4, we are able to create the perfect environnent for you to relax, and feel part of the family. You can start your Wine tour leaving from Paris.

Review March 2023:

Jim & Susanne USA

I found Luc’s website when I was searching for a day wine trip in the Loire Valley to impress my wife while on a trip to Paris. We decided to stay in Amboise and after some emails Luc arranged to pick us up at our hotel for a full day trip to  visit the Chambord and Chemonceau chateaus with a couple wine stops in between. There was no way I could have expected what this day would bring. He drove us through the  countryside to the chateaus with stops for wine all along the way including lunch in a small town, a tasting in a wine cave and a visit to a local Amboise winery where he was obviously one of the family. We thought this was the end of the tour until he brought us to a small family winery along the Loire River just outside Amboise and we were given the most exclusive tour of a vineyard and wine cave operation by a most gracious couple. Gabriela offered a tasting of at least a dozen wines with a variety of homemade appetizers. We couldn’t believe the experience.

Luc was extremely knowledgeable about wine and the Loire Valley. He took time to explain the history and demographics of Loire Valley wine. He even pulled out a full length map of the valley at lunch and gave us a lesson how to identify the regions and the labels. He spoke perfect English as he explained how he lived in the US for many years. We will never forget this experience.

Two jaw-dropping days with a wonderful guide

Viator review: Loire Valley 2 Days private tour all inclusive from Paris with train tickets

Seeing the chateaux’s as well as Davinci’s last home was spectacular. But the unexpected pleasant surprise was having Luc Bonhomme as our host for two days. He goes the extra mile to make sure you have the experience of a lifetime. Highly recommend this tour and Luc!

Review September 2022:

If you’re looking for a first class personalized custom tour of the Loire Valley, this is for you.

“I was a bit unsure booking this trip due to the lack of other reviews. But I am really glad we did! My husband and I were touring Normandy for a week and had a couple of extra days in Paris. Rather than brave the crowds at Versailles, we opted for a two day overnight trip to the Loire valley with Luc Bonhomme. I gave Luc a list of a few things on my list that we really wanted to see, including a special request for tickets to the grand gala horse show at the Cadre Noir in Saumur. He put together a fantastic tour that included chateau visits, Leonardo da Vinci’s home, wine tasting, a night at Fontevraud Abbey, a special luncheon at a private chateau, and the horse show. Exceeded my expectations!! If you want a first class tour of Loire Valley customized to your interests, I highly recommend this tour.”

Review August 2022:

“My wife and I went on a 6-day bike tour of the Loire Valley with Backroads, but wanted to spend some time after the bike tour learning about and tasting the Loire Valley wines. In two days, Luc did a great job educating us on the region and it’s wines. We knew the region for its Sancerre, but Luc picked wonderful wineries where we tasted Chenin Blanc, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc and Gamay as well as Sauvignon Blanc. You pass dozens of wineries, but the ones Luc picked were a perfect cross section of the region, and also had very interesting histories and wine making practices. And having Luc participate in the tours was extremely helpful do to his vast knowledge of the region and its wines. We shipped wine to the US from 2 of the wineries, and Luc was very helpful in arranging the shipments, and stayed involved afterwards with some shipping problems. In addition to the wine tours, we had a wonderful lunch in Amboise that was spectacular, and had two dinners in charming outdoor restaurants in small towns where we were definitely the only Americans. My wife and I highly recommend a wine tour with Luc.”

Originating in the rugged central Ardèche region of France and emptying into the Atlantic near the shipbuilding port of Saint Nazaire, the 1,000km-long Loire river is as French as the Mississippi is American. This is the river the French love best: for the soft green beauty of the regions it waters and because it has so profoundly shaped their culture and identity. The constellation of magnificent chateaux found in the Loire valley has stoked the world’s romantic imagination, making the area between Orléans and Angers one of the most storied and visited destinations in France
