- It so difficult to choose the highlights it was all brilliant! This tour is my second with Andrew and once again met and exceeded my expectations. Andrewâ€™s tours specialise in patisserie stops - my favorite was La Maison de Rabelais by the chateau drawbridge in Langeais. My highlights included:- The Chateau at Chenonceaux, Lunch outside the chateaux at Usse, Dinner in the hotel in Amboise Visiting Clos LucÃ© Hotel in Azay le Rideau just up from the Chateau Gates Impromptu wine tasting tour in Chinnon - it was a bank holiday in France so the cave were closed so we bought our own wine in the supermarket cycled the route and did our own tasting. Following a different route to the Loire a velo cyclists! The gardens at Villandry The optional hills! Monmousseau wine tasting Cycling up the hill to Chinnon on the last day without having to stop! Brilliant! Andrew's daily briefings and tour maps were excellent and easy to follow, we generally started out at 9:30, stopped for cake at 11, lunch at 12:30 visited a chateau in the afternoon and then arrived at the hotel in good time to shower before going out to dinner! Andrew specialises in patisserie stops and recommendations for places to eat were really good.
