Overview
The beautiful vineyards and fairy-tale castles of the Loire Valley lie just two hours south of Paris. This tour visits two of the most famous châteaux— Chenonceau and Chambord— and ensures you maximise your time with hotel pickup, skip-the-line entrance, and round-trip transport from Paris. Finish your day sampling regional wines during a guided wine tasting.
What to Expect
Your tour begins with pickup from your central Paris hotel (if option selected) and a scenic 2-hour drive to the Loire Valley. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned coach, admire the views as you leave the capital and journey through the lush countryside of the Loire Valley, admiring views along the River Loire.

The first stop of the day is Chambord Castle (Château de Chambord), the largest of all the Loire Valley châteaux. Follow your guide around the striking French Renaissance castle and grounds, taking in highlights such as the dramatic double-helix staircase and the magnificent gardens. During the guided portion of your tour, hear how the castle was built as a hunting lodge for King Francois I in the 16th-century and learn about the influence that Leonardo da Vinci had on the interior design.

After making a stop for lunch (own expense), hop back on the bus and continue to Chenonceau Castle (Château de Chenonceau). With its stunning gardens, riverside location, and gigantic moat, Chenonceau is one of the region’s most photographed castles and your guide will be able to point out all the most impressive viewpoints. Learn why it’s nicknamed the ‘Ladies’ Castle’ as you explore the opulent interiors, then finish your tour with a guided wine tasting and sample a selection of Loire Valley wines.

At the end of the visit, set out on the return journey to Paris, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Please note: Tours running between April and October will visit Amboise Castle instead of Chambord Castle on Mondays and Saturdays.

Great day in the Loire Valley!

Our wonderful hotel (La Villa Saint Germain- separate review) recommended Paris CityVision. They said Paris CityVision was known to be reliable, on time, and delivered what was advertised. So based on that recommendation, I booked a guided tour of the Loire Valley (the audio guide...More

Amazing Tour

We did this tour and it was very surprised of how interesting it was our tour guide was very good and her knowledge was superior. We went on a private tour so that would be why we had a better experience.
