Come and live an exceptional day in the heart of the Loire Valley in France. You will visit, in a small group, the Chateau de Chenonceau and the Chateau de Chambord with our guide, two of the greatest castles of the Loire Valley. This dive into French history will be completed by a visit to the Clos Lucé castle, the emblematic place of the famous Leonardo da Vinci.
First, you will drive to Chenonceau through the magnificent landscapes of the Loire Valley. You will contemplate the fields as far as the eye can see and will go along the Loire River at times offering a serenity to the trip. During the trip, our guide will give you some information about the sites you will see. You will then drive along 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 was maintained and enriched by several female characters over the years. The exterior setting with the building seeming to emerge from the water gives a fairy tale dimension to the castle. You will enjoy a one-hour guided tour of the castle of Chenonceau during which you will contemplate the furnished and flowered rooms, the tapestries and the period paintings. Our guide 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 stroll in the remarkable gardens along the Cher River and have lunch around the castle. Our guide will show you several places where you can have lunch. You will be invited to meet the guide directly at the bus parking lot to leave for 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
Then you will take the road towards Chambord. As soon as you approach the castle, you will be amazed by the majesty of the building that rises 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. Our guide will lead 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 the comments given by our guide on the history of the castle, built under the reign of François I with the participation of Leonardo da Vinci during the 16th century.
The bus will leave Chambord at 6:00 pm for an expected arrival at our agency in Paris around 8:30 pm.

Our tour guide was perfect—he was on time and courteous. His commentary was full of historical facts and interesting anecdotes. The chateaus were stunning and the drive was delightful to the Loire and back to Paris. Lunch at the Orangerie was delicious and the wines were tasty and plentiful. Overall the tour was a pleasure from start to finish.

Our tour and driver, Pamela, were excellent. The van was very comfortable and the lunch was very good. However, the logistics for pick up and drop off were poor. We got a message that we would be picked by taxi at 615 am but the driver took us to your old office. Fortunately, I knew your new location or we would have been stranded. There was a long line outside of your office and we were told to stand in line even though I showed your agent I had tickets for a van. Our driver came looking for us in line 10 minutes later. After lunch, our driver told us she could drop anyone off at different locations in Paris upon our return if we had dinner plans. I asked if she could drop us off at Place Leon Blum and she said she could. In Paris, she dropped off the first client at 6 pm at his hotel in Montparnasse. I asked her again if she would drop us off at Place Leon Blum and she said she would after dropping off the second client near Rue Buci. Instead of heading to our location, she drove to the agency and told us she would get us a taxi to Leon Blum. I asked her why she told us she would take us to our location several times and she replied she misunderstood our request and we had to wait for a taxi that the agency already called for. We arrived at your office at 625. There was no taxi there. She made several more calls and kept telling us the taxi was on the way. 30 minutes later we were still waiting in the heat. Another driver told us we had to have patience since taxis in Paris were bad. I told Pamela we could have been been at our hotel by now if she dropped us off and she would have been finished instead of standing on the street with us! They finally found a G7 taxi that dropped off a passenger across the street at 715pm, 50 minutes after arriving at your office. We were dropped off at our hotel at 745, hot, tired and aggravated. I paid almost 500 euros for 2 passengers and I had to leave my hotel earlier and return almost 2 hours later than a client that paid you 250 euros! We were not treated fairly. This was not our experience with prior tours with your agency. M Kroop
