''Accompanied by our guide, we visited four vineyards/ cellars which we wouldn't have known about or found ourselves. An excellent lunch was provided enroute- A great day out''
Great tour! Wonderful vineyards, beautiful scenery, delicious picnic and easy conversation, and best of all were the wines- highly recommended''
''Lovely way to spend the day! I would definitely recommend this excursion to friends/family that are looking for a great mix of outdoor fun and wine tasting!''
''What a marvellous day we had ,Quintin was an exceptional Host (I say host because he was so much more than just a guide) his informative & witty talk kept us entertained all day ,the wine tasting at the vineyards was really well done with a walk around the vast cellars to get a true feel of the history & pedigree of these family owned wine producers, we were lucky enough to have beautiful weather but regardless of that we will do it again next visit.
We cannot recommend this tour highly enough we enjoyed the entire 5 1/2 hours we were in his company''

''This turned out to be a highlight of our trip to the Loire Valley. Our tour through several wineries by bike included a picnic by the river with views and wine of course! The roads were safe for riders and Quintin kept us entertained with his knowledge of the area, the grapes, the vineyards and yes-the wine! It really was a fun and intimate way to get to know Chinon. Would give more stars if I could!''
We arranged this tour with Quintin ‘on spec’ from Australia during our stay in the Loire Valley. It was a delight!
The town of Chinon was one of the most beautiful we have seen so far in the Loire and learnt from our host that it is a very significant historical town in France with connections to Jean of Arc and Henri II.
Quentin then took us on a tour of 3 very different local wineries, each with its own particular tale to tell. He is obviously well regarded by the locals wine makers and they were all very engaging and the wines enjoyable.
Would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking for a special experience while staying in the Loire.
