Excellent. This was such a good combination of beauty, imagination, history and accessibility. Very nice 90 minutes. Not the overwhelming grandeur of Chambord nor the crowds that made it a challenge to get through. The audio guide was perfect, and contributed to a great experience....More

Amazing Chateau, quite unbelievable gardens, almost more unbelievable vegetable gardens, huge grounds to wander. Worth the price of admission. Would recommend the audio tour.
