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.

Well laid out if you wish to plan your own trip, lots of information. Staff proved very helpful and if they did not know said so. If your French is as good as mine don't worry they spoke English. Buying tickets here for visits to Chateau can save you money.

It was disappointing that the tourism office in Tours was very quick to take my money but were unprepared to provide an adequate form of customer service. They did not provide any usual information that was needed for our afternoon trip to the chateaux. For instance that there would be no where open in the chateaux to eat due to... More
