Discover the Loire Valley by embarking on an audio guided tour from Paris. During this day trip, you will visit two of the main castles of the Loire Valley, Chenonceau Castle and Chambord Castle. You will also enjoy the Clos Lucé castle, the iconic place of Leonardo da Vinci.

You will leave Paris in a comfortable air-conditioned coach. The early departure at 7:15 am will allow you to fully enjoy your day, a tour guide being at your disposal if needed. The coach will drive through the French countryside which combines green landscapes, the fine banks of the Loire River and picturesque villages offering a magnificent panorama. You will have some audio commentary on the history of the Loire Valley and its rich heritage. 

First, you will drive to Chenonceau through the beautiful landscapes of the Loire Valley. You will contemplate the fields as far as the eye can see and will go along the Loire river offering a serenity to the trip. You will then take a beautiful tree-lined driveway that offers an incredible view of the castle. Our guide will give you a presentation of this sumptuous royal residence nicknamed "the ladies' castle" because it has been maintained and enriched by several female characters over the years. The exterior setting, with the building appearing to emerge from the water, gives a fairy tale dimension to the castle. You will enjoy a one-hour visit of the Chenonceau castle during which you will contemplate the furnished and flowered rooms, the tapestries and the period paintings. Our audioguide will tell you many stories and anecdotes about this castle and the importance of the female presence which testifies to the French art of living.

After this visit of Chenonceau, you will have free time to walk in the remarkable gardens along the Cher and have lunch around the castle. Our guide will indicate several places where you can have lunch. You will be invited to meet the guide directly at the bus parking lot to go to Amboise to discover the Clos Lucé castle. You will be able to discover the world of the famous Leonardo da Vinci.
Castle of the Loire
You will then take the road in the direction of Chambord. As soon as you approach the castle, you will be amazed by the majesty of the building that stands before you. Its impressive architecture makes it the largest of the Loire castles. You will then quickly enter the interior thanks to a priority access. The audioguide will guide you through some of the castle's rooms and you will take the famous "double revolution staircase" to reach the large panoramic terrace. You will enjoy a superb view of the park while listening to our guide's comments on the history of the castle, built under the reign of François I with the participation of Leonardo da Vinci in the 16th century.

While our guide was wonderful and made the experience easy and enjoyable, the bus ride situation was a bit unpleasant. First off, the driver arrived and there was no WiFi on the bus and all the USB ports didn't work, so no one had the capability to charge their cameras or cell phones in order to use them for picture taking or communication use as promised when purchasing the tour. We felt that the drivers and PARISCityVision should have made sure these items are always checked every night at the end of the last tours and every morning before the beginning of the days tours to ensure they live up to company standards and promises. Then, we had the unfortunate event of a passenger throwing up all over the aisle during our long ride making several of us feel very nauseous due to the smell on board. We expected it to be cleaned once we arrived back to the bus hours later. Instead the driver never cleaned up the vomit. One of our guides must have asked for a bucket and mop from the castle and cleaned it up last minute as we boarded the bus. While we realize ill passengers aren't the company's fault, there should be standard items on board every bus for these moments and act with a sense of urgency to make the guests feel the monies they've spent are worth spending on PARISCityVision.
