A visit to the Loire Valley is a must and can easily be done from Paris. We booked a tour online through the Tours tourist office ahead of our trip. We are not keen on big bus tours so we chose a mini bus which is run by Touraine Evasion. This is more of a shuttle service so there is... More

A visit to the tourist office is a must when visiting Tours. We had all our questions answered in great detail by the very helpful staff who provided us with loads of information and pamphlets. We also bought tickets here for our visits to three chateaux and were able to save some euros.

The first thing I did when I arrived to Tours was to head to the tourist information. They were very helpful with good English and handed me pamphlets for Chateau tours. You could book through them so that was a plus.

The people in the tourist office were very helpful. We were looking for a day tour for the next day and they fit us perfectly with a wonderful tour of Chateaus and a wine tasting. Also helped with navigating the city. Very informative maps and brochures of region.

Staffed well enough so no waiting to speak to an agent. They speak English. There are so many pamphlets on attractions, you will be overwhelmed.
