Debbie and Sonia from Luxury France Tours helped us organised a lovely 6 days to Avignon & Tours after our Lourdes pilgrimage. There was a total of 15 of us in the group with some elderly people as well. It was a pleasure to work with both of them and they really went far and beyond to cater to our needs and wishes. From pacing the right amount of sightseeing per day, beautiful visits to Chateau Villandry & Chateau Chenonceau. Their choice of accommodation was top notch - booking us the hotel in Avignon that was built on the remains of a Jesuit noviciate and a former Court House in Loches. They were so helpful in late minute changes to visit the Caritatis vineyards and also managed to squeeze in some shopping time on our last day, just before the airport! The restaurant bookings and Loire Valley river dinner cruise were little wholesome touches of French hospitality through their region home grown produced and cooking. And lastly, our lovely driver for 6 days, Malik! A total gem and made our long road trip enjoyable, smooth and safe! Not a single guest suffered from motion sickness although we have 3 that were prone to it! Overall, it was a real pleasure to deal with Luxury France Tours and we will be using them again for our 2024 trip! Thank you Debbie, Sonia and Malik! Special thanks to our love guides, Sylvia, Nicolas & Valentine
