Taxi in Amboise?

Hi.. We are traveling to Amboise via train, so we won't have a rental car. Will it be possible to get a taxi from our hotel for an eary morning balloon flight? The balloon take off point is near Chenenceau. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Here is a list of taxi operators:

I have no idea of the cost but Chenonceaux is a good distance from Amboise, 30+ minutes.

You can also, via Tours, reach Chenonceaux by train:

I would ask the balloon company about the pick up by taxi. I would think that this is a frequent requirement, and they probably have a list of taxi drivers they use on such occasions.

We are currently holidaying in Amboise and spent yesterday at 'Chateau de Chenonceau', having caught the local bus (only 1 bus per day) from Amboise in the morning to Chenonceau and returning in the afternoon by taxi.

The taxi from Chenonceau Tourist Office to Amboise Tourist Office cost Euro25.20 from memory.

Taxi numbers for Amboise provided by the owners of our apartment are as follows - 02 47 57 1353 0r 02 47 57 3039.

Hope this helps and have a great trip - it's a georgeous town.
