Overview
The beautiful vineyards and fairy-tale castles of the Loire Valley lie just two hours south of Paris. This tour visits two of the most famous châteaux—Chenonceau and Chambord—and ensures you maximize your time with hotel pickup, skip-the-line entrance, and round-trip transportation from Paris. Finish your memorable day sampling regional wines during a guided tasting.
What to Expect
Your tour begins with pickup from your central Paris hotel (if option selected) and a scenic 2-hour 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. 

Note: Tours running between April and October visit Amboise Castle instead of Chambord Castle on Mondays and Saturdays.

Good tour on the whole

I'd visited Chateau de Chambord but not Chateau de Chenonceau. My friend hadn't been to any of them. So the tour was good for lazy people like us who wanted to visit both chateaux on a single day without making so much planning. We started...More

Beautiful tour

Just the right tour. The chateaus were lovely and the drive was relaxing. The wine tasting is a nice touch. A must see if you are in Paris. Even though it was an all day tour, it was worth it.

Loire valley was really a feast for eyes

Our day tour to 2 castes of Chambord and Chenonceau was very good. The tour was well organised and castles and the Loire valley are really very beautiful. The audio guide option was very good and preferred over personalised guide so you don't have to...More

So Many Views, So Little Time

As tours go, I'm a fairly seasoned traveler. I've engaged private tours, mini-bus tours, and big bus tours like this. In my experience, this was a "good" tour in terms of getting a generality of experience (in a big group, in a big hurry); but...More

Gorgeous locations, slightly rushed, would recommend!

Chambord and Chenonceau were magnificent and awe inspiring. The wine tasting was very good and the explanations and were in depth. They allowed us to ask questions and learn a lot. Our group was a little large which made maneuvering through some of the spaces...More

You can pay for a hotel pickup and return if you want - the cost is extra and is added to the total cost of the tour. We opted to have a pick up and return to our hotel. It worked for us, but you can also hire your own taxi.

The tourist company is located very close to the Louvre - most taxis will know the area/address.
