Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Loire Valley, Loire Valley

Marvel at the Loire Valley's opulent châteaux and taste its famous locally-made wine during this full-day tour from Paris.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Chateau de Chambord, le Chateau, 41250, Chambord France

From Paris, you’ll head first to Château de Chambord. Disney fans will find this castle’s turrets familiar; it was the inspiration for the castle in ‘Beauty and the Beast’. Though originally conceived as a royal hunting lodge, it was built to a scale that must be seen to be believed. You’ll learn all about the castle’s captivating history from your guide, before getting your own chance to explore. Climb a staircase supposedly designed by Da Vinci; enjoy spectacular turret-framed rooftop views; glimpse wild deer around the grounds; and work up an appetite for the next stop.

Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

Stop At: Blois, Blois, Loir-et-Cher, Centre-Val de Loire

Having worked up an appetite, we'll get back on the bus and on to our next stop - the quaint town of Blois, where you’ll get some free time to enjoy lunch in one of the restaurants located around the beautiful and vibrant Square Louis XII.

Duration: 1 hour 45 minutes

Stop At: Chateau de Chenonceau, 37150 Chenonceaux France

Last but not least is a visit to the elegant Château de Chenonceau for wine tasting. The chapel, bedrooms and magnificent vaulted kitchens are still furnished and decorated from times gone by, showing off the castle’s many sweeping stone carvings. Don’t miss the impressive main hall, which spans the river Cher, or the gardens cultivated by Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de Medici – two of the famous owners that earned Chenonceau the nickname ‘the Ladies’ Château’. After a guided tour, you’ll have a choice: continue exploring, or indulge in a second wine tasting in the castle’s vaulted wine cellar.

Three uniquely beautiful castles, good food and wine, all amid the scenery of the Loire Valley: this tour is a feast for the senses.

Had a fantastic time at the Loire Valley Castles! Raymond did a fantastic job (plus he took us to a great kebab place)! Amazing experience overall, thank you.

The trip was very rushed with only about an hour to see the wonders of each chateau. The wine tasting was well below average. Not enough chairs for all the tour participants and not much information about the wines or the winery. The owner of the vineyard did not impart much info about the wines and nothing about the process of making his wine. Least impressive wine tour we have ever taken. The bus driver got lost at least once. Lastly, the trip was billed as small group tour but it was a full size coach 25 to 30 tour goers. The tour guide was good but their was too much to do and too little time.

Chamborg and Chenonceau were great! Needed more time at each venue, didn't get a chance to see a lot. Skip the stop at Blois. Perhaps offer a box lunch or make other arrangements to offer more time at the castles. Tour guides were good.
