DAY 1: Day trip to the Mont Saint Michel and guided tour of Mont Saint Michel Abbey

Our air-conditioned bus leaves at 7:15 am from our agency, located in downtown Paris. A guide-interpreter will accompany you on the trip. The bus takes you along the Normandy highway, and after enjoying the lush green French countryside, you will arrive at Mont Saint-Michel around 11:30 am. Since you will probably be ready for lunch by then, your guide will give you different adreses to lunch by yourself.


Mont Saint-Michel

After lunch on your own, you will board a shuttle that takes you across the causeway to Mont Saint-Michel. Explore this exceptional wonder of the Western world with your guide, strolling the city walls or the Grande Rue with its many museums, shops, and medieval houses until you reach the top of the mountain and the Mont Saint-Michel abbey. The guided tour will introduce you to this Benedictine abbey that dates back to the 8th century. Dedicated to Saint Michael the Archangel, the building boasts incredible Gothic architecture. Explore the refectory and the one-of-a-kind garden overlooking the sea. Then, take in the breathtaking scenery and the magnificent view of the Mont Saint-Michel bay as you make your way down along the city walls. You could also choose to stroll the village's narrow streets, stopping to pick up a souvenir or to sample a delicious crêpe.


Mont Saint-Michel refectory

The bus leaves Mont Saint-Michel at 4:30 pm for Angers (about 2.5 hours away), where you will spend the night at the Mercure Lac de Maine (or a similar hotel). You will find many restaurants near your hotel to have dinner. 

DAY 2: Loire Valley Castles Guided Tour to Langeais, Chenonceau and Chambord

After a good night's sleep and a delicious breakfast at the hotel in Angers, the bus will set off for the Châteaux of the Loire Valley. The bus makes a brief stop near Château d'Angers so you can view the exterior of the medieval fortress. The guide will also tell you about the castle. About one hundred kilometers away lies Langeais, where you will enjoy your first tour of the day. Follow your guide inside the structure, which is made up of two incredible châteaux. Take in the oldest keep in France (constructed around the year 1000) and the Château de Louis XI built-in 1465 while you experience French history through depictions made with highly realistic wax figures.


Langeais Castle

The guided tour of Langeais is followed by chance to enjoy lunch on your own in Chenonceau, about 45 minutes away. Your guide will help you choose a restaurant where you want to eat.

It will take about 20 minutes for the bus to reach the next stop, Château de Chenonceau. Explore this castle that played a unique role in French history and its awe-inspiring architecture built over the Cher river. It is also known as the "Château des Dames" and the guided tour will teach you about the history of this castle, built and renovated by many famous French women, including Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de' Medici. You can also admire the richly decorated rooms whose ornaments speak to the refined way of life in France.


Chateau de Chenonceau

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 is scheduled to return to our agency in Paris around 8 pm.
