Loire Valley Chateaux Day Trip from Paris, Lunch included

Duration 12:45 hour(s)
Highlights
  • Discover the beautiful Loire Valley region
  • Immerse yourself into the royal French History and refined architecture
  • Visit on your own to fully enjoy the setting 
  • Visit two majestic French Chateaux : Chambord and Chenonceau (Amboise depending on departure)

Get to our Louvre Agency and board our air-conditioned coach at 7:15am for a day trip to discover the fascinating Loire castles. After a bus ride of about 3 hours, during which you will gaze at typical French landscapes, you will arrive at the Chateau de Chenonceau. 

Visit on your own this architectural masterpiece in a magical setting. Discover its complex history that was marked by the different women who built it throughout the years. This is the reason why the castle is also called the “Ladies’ Chateau”, illustrated by the refined decoration in each room. Thus, the famous Queen Catherine de Medici built the Florentine inspired gallery above the Cher river.


The Chateau de Chenonceau

Our guide will suggest you places around for lunch before heading back on the road. You will get on the bus at 1:30 pm for about an hour and a half riding to Chambord.

Fish terrine on diced mixed vegetables

As soon as you will see Chateau de Chambord, you will be blown away by this architectural monster of incomparable beauty, just like straight out of a fairy tale. This Francis I residence is nowadays the symbol of French power and Renaissance art. 

You will walk through the different rooms at your own pace and enjoy a wonderful panoramic view of the estate from the top of the Chateau's terrace, accessible by the famous double-spiral staircase. While climbing these steps, you will understand the technical prowess of Leonardo da Vinci, who was the first painter, architect and engineer of King Francis I. 

Over the three floors of the keep, you will observe the many details brought to the realization of this building. Depending on how much time you have left, you can stroll through the park and admire the view of the castle.


The Chateau de Chambord

They give their opinion

Misleading-5 people on the tour( including me) had not understood we had to wait in line for 2 hrs to enter Chenonceau, while all the others walked right in. Very disappointing. I did not even go inside because I had to eat something and we had barely time to do that. - your 2 guides: I had asked the Brazilian guide Andrea to sit in front because I might get sick from the road. She refused. I said I might throw up. She told me to sit behibd the guide Pascale then and throw up on her: unacceptable guide behavior! Pascale later told Andrea I should not have bought this tour if I am going to be sick- again unaceptable guide behavior. Soon I got up feeling very sick( near Chenonceau), so they sat me next to the driver. On the way back Andrea let me sit next to her finally but Pascale did not want to allow that. Your 2 guides showed zero compassion and zero caring for me, your client.I always reccomend your company to my friends in the US but maybe not again. I am surprised because 2 yrs ago I took your ( very expensive) Provence tour and had the most wonderful time. Maybe it is time you retrain your guides so they actually show some empathy for their fellow human beings. Thank you. Simone Beduschi
