Summary

The tour starts at 7:15 am in the center of Paris, where you will take a luxury air-conditioned coach across the beautiful French countryside. 

You’ll first head to the Château de Chambord, passing by magnificent landscapes, which are characteristic of the Loire Valley. Gaze out at fields as far as the eye can see as the Loire river rolls by, making for a peaceful journey.

During the trip, your guide will give you some information about the sites you see. Upon arrival at the Château, you will be astonished by the majesty of the edifice. The Château’s imposing architecture makes it the largest of all Loire châteaux. The bus parking lot is a few feet from the Château’s entrance, so you can take in the distinctive atmosphere around it. Then, you’ll quickly gain priority access. Your guide will bring you through several of the château’s rooms, before you take the celebrated double helix staircase up to the large panoramic terrace. You’ll have a superb view of the park as you listen to commentary from our guide about the history of the château, which was built under the reign of Francis I with participation from Leonardo Da Vinci in the 16th century.

Following this visit, your guide will accompany you to a wine tasting area within the château, where you can enjoy a wine tasting. The 45-minute tasting organized by La Maison des Vins, will let you taste the famous Loire wines Cour-Cheverny and AOC Cheverny, alongside four pieces of toast with local food products.

You will then have one free hour to have lunch near the château. Your guide will tell you about several places you can eat. After lunch, you'll head off to Château de Chenonceau and have about 30 minutes of free time to visit on your own. 

The coach will leave Chenonceau at 6:15 p.m. to arrive in Paris around 8 p.m.
