Great Castles Tour June 15 2001 Departure
One of the highlights of the tour was the sound and light show at Blois Castle. Everybody left the show impressed and mesmerized by the complexity and variety of images displayed. The sound and light show used multimedia to explain the different historical events that took place at the castle. One of the most significant events was the visit by Joan of Arc in 1429 to plan the attack on the city of Orleans. Wednesday night is the only night the show is given in English so the tour was planned carefully to be at Blois on Wednesday night.
A couple from Indiana, wrote the following letter:
Great Castles Tour August 31st. departure.
Now ... why I am going with you again this year: Last year our castles tour was so grand. Your first tour was outstanding. I loved the hotels, the food and the diversity of castles as well as Rothenburg. There was time for shopping and relaxing. I got to see familiar things again and see new things. The other tour participants were so fun, nice and helpful. I am going with you again this year because I know you work hard to provide a quality tour and I am confident that again the hotel and meals will be superb, our guide and driver will be qualified in their areas and provide us with a safe and interesting tour, and that the castles and other sites we visit will be interesting and diversified. I can travel with you with the confidence that I am getting what I paid for and that my expectations will be met. I know that qualified people will be available to answer any question or concern I might have. Above all, I know that you are honest and ethical...and I want to visit those places that I find so fascinating. If I loved it the first time I want to experience it again.
