Description

Experience castles, wines and history on this memorable day trip to the picturesque Loire Valley. Discover the fascinating history and marvel at the extravagant glamour of the French aristocracy at Château de Chambord and Château de Chenonceau. You’ll enjoy skip-the-line entry, sumptuous wine tastings, and stunning riverside landscapes. In summer you’ll visit the majestic Amboise castle rather than Chambord on Saturday and Monday tours. Leave Paris behind and board your luxury air-conditioned coach en route for the luscious Loire Valley. Your tour commences with the Château de Chambord, François the First’s former pad. Be wowed by the luxurious interiors while your tour guide regales you with juicy anecdotes (Sneak peek: the double helix staircase is said to be by Leonardo Da Vinci, no less!) Quaff three of the region’s finest wines and sample the region’s local fayre at a wine tasting session. Then it’s off to the castle of Chenonceau, also known as ‘the ladies’ castle’ after the illustrious women who have called it their home to take in the picture-perfect waterfront views and learn about the castle’s fascinating history. If you’re visiting in winter, you’ll enjoy a traditional lunch including one drink and during other seasons our guide will pont you in the direction of a selection of authentic eateries. Travelling on a Monday or Saturday in summer. Instead of Chambord you’ll head to the equally opulent Château d’Amboise and descend to the cavernous wine cellars at Chenonceau for your wine tasting session.

By selecting the appropriate option, you could have audio guide during the tour or you could attend the tour at your leisure!

The tour description states there will be three chateaux; Chambord, Chenonceau, and Cheverny. They only took us to two chateaux, Chambord and Chenonceau. Reference is made to Cheverny twice in the description, so that is misleading. It also says there will be "Wine Tastings"; there was only one wine tasting. Chambord and Chenonceau are beautiful and wonderful castles to see. The bus was comfortable and the guide was great.
