  • Experience two magnificent châteaux in one day: Chenonceau and Chambord

  • Hassle-free round-trip transportation from Paris and optional hotel pickup
What to Expect
Your tour begins with pickup from your central Paris hotel (if option selected) and a scenic drive to the Loire Valley. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned bus, admire the views as you journey through the lush Loire Valley countryside and along the Loire River. The first stop is Chambord Castle (Château de Chambord), the largest of all Loire Valley châteaux. Follow your guide around the striking French Renaissance castle and grounds, taking in highlights such as the dramatic double-helix staircase and the magnificent gardens. During the guided portion of your tour, learn about the castle’s construction in the 16th century and how Leonardo da Vinci influenced the interior design.  After lunch (own expense), continue to Chenonceau Castle (Château de Chenonceau). With its stunning gardens, riverside location, and gigantic moat, Chenonceau is one of the region’s most photographed castles. Explore the opulent interiors, then finish your tour with a guided tasting of Loire Valley wines. Return to Paris, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.  Guests traveling between November 1 and March 31 receive a traditional lunch and drink. Outside of this period, your guide offers recommendations on excellent restaurants and cafes. Note: Tours running between April and October visit Amboise Castle instead of Chambord Castle on Mondays and Saturdays; and your wine tasting takes place in the delightful Chenonceau wine cellars.

The castles are lovely and the drive around the area is too. However, for the price you paid for this tour, I wish they had something more to do or maybe more time? You are pretty much driving around for hours, get an hour at a castle and then that's it. The wine tasting is good

The castles were wonderful but you do not get enough time to really explore them. Chambord is rely quite large. You don't get enough time because you spend 3 hours traveling (without any refreshments,bring your own) to get to Chenonceau, another 1.25 hours to get to Chambord
