"Well organized, selection of sites was well thought out. The accommodations were wonderful for the most part with a couple of exceptions. The food was always well prepared and nicely presented!

Chambord Castle


Robyn and James from New York and London

"It was history mixed with culture. Some of the local guides were excellent and the tour group really got on well. Astrid (tour director) was amazing."

Barbara and Mary from Texas

"I thought it was a very interesting trip maybe a little exhausting but definitely NOT boring. I really did like all of the castles. I hate to try to grade them because it comes across like some weren't so interesting. They all were and quite different in styles. The German castles were so unique & fairytale like"

Blois Castle.


At the Champagne Cave


David and Bev from Oklahoma

David....Oh! It was wonderful! I will always remember it as many exciting sights and sounds (Fussen musical & Hofbrauhaus) and tastes! I am very satisfied that my money was well spent and I have recommended the tour already. I would suggest that you drive past the sound and music house for pictures."

Bev......."The castles were much more than I expected and learned so much history. Just to think we stood in the same places that kings and queens before us stood and reigned. Never expected so much beauty in these castles and their grounds. The gardens were exquisite."



Daryl, Karen and Michelle from North Carolina

Daryl... "This trip was very organized, from the website to the tour director. Everything was just as the itinerary was planned. The tour was very informative from the local guides to our tour director."

Karen..."I enjoyed the trip a lot. I thought the bus ride was actually better than I thought. I saw more than I thought I would get to see.

Michelle..." I enjoyed the light show at Blois."



The Palace of Versailles



Renata and Fred from Texas

Fred...."Loved Notre Dame de Reims and the old, old towns such as Rothenburg and Salzburg."

Renata..." I really enjoyed the trip. We were very well taken care of."

Jaime from Texas

Our tour leader from Castles of the World

We had a great trip.  Even though there were many different ages, everybody got along so well because of the same common interest,
CASTLES!!  Some passengers commented that they learned and remembered more history during the 15 days of the tour, than their entire High School and College Education.  We enjoyed many fun activities such as swimming or playing Frisbee after a long day of sightseeing.
