We had a great time experiencing the wines and food of the Loire Valley. Sylvain was an exceptional host and was very knowledgeable about the local wines and food. The tours were authentic and it seemed as if we were touring the region as a local. Sylvain was able to recommend wine per our tastes and even helped us find wine to bring back. The B&B is situated in a nice location in Blois and is a short 5-10 minute walk from some gardens and cathedral overlooking the Loire River. We wish we could have spent more time and we hope to make another trip sometime next year!

I spent a month in Europe and travelling solo, was hesitant about how a solo wine tour would go but my two days with Sylvain was incredible!
He worked with me leading up to my visit to cater to my individual taste in wine (Natural, vegan friendly, small independent wine makers) and wrapped it around two days of history, castles and plenty of laughs!
He absolutely nailed the wine visits with tours of winemakers properties, into their cellars/caves, some incredible wine tried (and bought and consumed) across a few parts of the Loire valley. Each of the visits were paired with a piece of history from the area. Which to be honest, I could sit all day and listen to Sylvain teach me about the history of the French renaissance and monarchy.
Being solo I was offered two nights dinner at home beautifully prepared all vegan friendly and traditional French cuisine.
I could not talk highly enough of Sylvain and his families hospitality. The room was beautiful also!
Please - if you want an authentic tour of the area with a local guide, back Wine Geometry tours. I’ll be back! This time with the family.
