Called in last minute for some info and found not only a greta tourist informatino centre but excellent selection of gifts. All quite tasteful and very good prices.

My iPhone actually located this spot. Since it was near my hotel & I went in to a first class facility staffed by two wonderful ladies - both very fluent in English. The lady that I spoke with listened to my desire to visit two chateaux & recommended a company "Touraine Evasion" (which I will review separately). She called the... More

Very friendly and helpful staff in the easy-to find office just a smidgen from the hyper centre of Tours. Plenty of maps and brochures to take away.

Needed to get my Pelegrín credential stamped, which wasn't a problem. I also bought some postcard. Unfortunately, they did not had enough change for my €20. Staff went to all lengths to arrange that. This is one of the bigger tourist offices I've been too. Actually had to stand in a queue. Staff are friendly and multilingual.

With all the 5 ratings i expected fire works and a milk shake. Actually it was fine. We booked our chateaus(french castles) here. They do speak decent English.

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

We booked the Valley of Kings Tour via the website and were not disappointed. We took the TGV from Paris to tour the Chateaus for day. The tour dovetailed nicely with the train schedule. Upon arrival in Tours we had enough time for petit dejeuner. Amboise, Chenonceau, lunch, Cheverny, and Chambord. Lunch was a complete surprise! It was excellent! Great... More

Good information given but dissapointed that there were no walking tours given in English. Every day at 10 am but in French only. Very disappointed about that. They hand you the map and tell you where to go so you see all non-French speakers wandering around with their maps! Also, do not take the Loire châteaux excursions (Touraine Evasion) which... More
