Passionate about wine & food tourism!

As far I can remember, I always enjoyed meeting people and learning new things. Becoming a licensed tour guide sounded quite obvious.
Though on the way, I discovered a new passion for wine so I decided to get specialized in wine & food tourism. Since 2010, I joyfully combine my love for wine and history.
Beyond wine, food and castles, it is the people behind I am passionate about. I would be pleased to share my knowledge about the leading figures of the past but also to introduce you to the local producers and craftsmen who make the current fame of the region.

Wine expert & food enthusiast

I fell in love with wine at a young age and had a long career in the English wine trade before moving to the Loire valley in 2006.
Expert wine lover, I have a WSET Diploma in Wines & Spirits and a Higher National Diploma in viticulture and oenology. Passionate about the wines of the Loire I love to share my knowledge with like minded people from all over the world.
I like also sharing a little of my life here with you and love to learn all about yours.  It’s an exchange of cultures, lives, personal stories and a shared love of wine !

A passionate guide for lively, friendly and customized tours

My name is Barbara, I am a certified tour guide and have been working in the Loire Valley since 2010.
After a degree in Law-History and a master’s degree in Heritage Mediation in Europe, I obtained my tour guide card and decided to create my own company. This allows me today to share my passion for History through lively and tailor-made guided tours.

For me, History is a living matter and not only a series of dates and events; History must be lived and understood, and it is this dynamic that I try to transmit to the youngest as well as the oldest.

I therefore propose to take you to the heart of the castles of the Loire, to immerse yourself in their stories and their mysteries!
See you soon !

Your foodie and sportman guide!

I have been working as a licensed tour guide for almost 25 years. Born and raised in the Loire Valley, I live in a small village, in the heart of the châteaux region.
The Loire Valley is heaven for a foodie like me. Its mild climate and great soils provide amazing wines, cheeses, fruits, and vegetables. I have always been passionate about food, and I take it very seriously. I insist on choosing for you and for myself the best wineries, farmer’s markets, restaurants, etc.
I practice sports every day, especially crossfit. I naturally used this to create my signature tours: bike tours.

The Loire Valley with its 300 châteaux from the French Renaissance is the perfect region for me, my favourite field in art being architecture.
Only an hour away by train from Paris, it offers a relaxing way to discover some of the greatest masterpieces of architecture and splendid French countryside.

Let me tell you a little about myself.  I was born in Nantes where I have studied tourism. After my studies,I traveled to England to improve my English and to Spain for my Spanish.
I have been a tour guide for 25 years, first travelling throughout Europe with French Groups, then I started to guide in the Loire Valley, welcoming many foreign visitors.
With my husband, we own a 3-star hotel and restaurant close to Chenonceau. My husband is pretty much responsible for running that property. I am more involved in decorating.
I love meeting people and travelling, always caring for those on my tour. I love sharing my passion for history, culture, food, wine…

Two languages, two countries, two cultures,
an extraordinary treasure!

Born in Germany, it is more than 25 years now that I have been living in France and eight years working as a tourist guide.
My love for languages made me become a guide – and the world opened up to me: to understand that everything that surrounds us is our story which we call History! The many discoveries I have made and continue to make is what I’m eager to share with the people I meet in my job – being my guests’ eyes!
And the world continues to open up to me as I meet people from all over the globe, making me travel while I tour with them – human exchange is the engine of life!
My aim is to do my job to the best – passionate and experienced, reliable and helpful, personable, nice and just…, I try to be the kind of person I would want showing me around on my own holidays.
