Excursion d'une journée en petit groupe dans les châteaux de la vallée de la Loire, au départ de Paris
Parcourez les collines de la vallée de la Loire, région viticole du centre de la France classée au patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO. Votre guide vous conduira jusqu'aux châteaux, que vous explorerez vous-même sans être attaché au reste de votre groupe.
Commencez votre visite par le plus grand château de la vallée de la Loire, le château de Chambord, classé au patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO. Découvrez son étonnante architecture de la Renaissance - la légende raconte que Léonard de Vinci a contribué à la conception de son escalier à double hélice.
Continuez vers le château d'Amboise, qui était un château défensif au XIe siècle pour sa position stratégique surplombant la Loire avant d'être converti au XVe siècle en résidence pour la famille royale. Entrez dans la chapelle Saint-Hubert, où est enterrée la dépouille de Léonard de Vinci.
Ensuite, vous aurez du temps libre dans le village situé au pied du château pour vous promener et profiter de votre pause déjeuner après une dégustation de vins.
Après avoir repris des forces, dirigez-vous vers le château de Chenonceau, un château du XVIe siècle enjambant le Cher. C'est l'un des châteaux les plus populaires de France pour ses intérieurs et ses extérieurs complexes. Votre excursion d'une journée se terminera avec le transport de retour au point de départ à Paris.

My wife enjoyed all three castle tours but we were subjected to uncomfortable transportation. the tour was approximately 12 hours long, 5 hours were spent at the Chateaus, lunch and wine tasting. The remaining 7 hours were in the mini van. We were required to sit in the front seat with the driver/tour guide. It was a bench seat with very little leg room on the passenger side. We were both surprised that this was acceptable.
I loved this tour because it gave us the freedom to explore on our own. Three gorgeous French castles and a wine tasting? How could you go wrong! Great itinerary and I never felt rushed even when we covered so much ground. This tour was a great option for us and I thought it was well done. One thing I would say is that our driver was not really a guide. If you're thinking you will learn a lot about the castles, you won't unless you get the audioguides or have a book. The guide gave a minor introduction to each place but mostly left us to ourselves. That was fine with us. Our guide was also a little off - since the majority of his job was to be a driver, I felt like he wasn't a very good driver. In the morning he was going super slow and over-cautious (even telling another woman in the front that he needed to focus on the empty three-lane highway) and then in the afternoon traffic driving like a crazy person without a blinker and lots of honking. I am from a place with terrible drivers (Boston) and I know one when I see one...which was like his whole job!
Great tour. Getting out of Paris for a nice was very nice and seeing all the castles in the Loire Valley was great. We got to see a different side of France, which was beautiful.
Excellent tour, operated by Paris Tour better than Pariscity Vision
Terrific experience. Our tour guide Philipe arrived at our hotel and the three of us and another guest headed off to the Loire valley. He was terrific. He is from Normandy and was a wealth of information about this region as well. The castles were great and we had ample time to see. The lunch was ok. All in all one of the best days we had on our trip to Paris. Next time on to Normandy!
Fabulous tour! Vehicle changed by tour operator to a small car, as there were only two of us. However, each of us has very long legs and the ride was, therefore, uncomfortable. Guide walked way too quickly for one of us, who is awaiting knee surgery in the near term.
This was our favorite tour. It was a beautiful sunny day and these chateaus are magnificent. There were only 8 of us with a great guide who was multi-lingual. We were picked up at our hotel and it was a comfortable trip out with a break for us halfway out. Our guide took us up to the entrances of the houses and met us afterwards. The chateau in the picture had two full time florists and the floral displays throughout it were some of the most beautiful I have ever seen. We got a great overview of chateau life and really enjoyed the tour. The pace was great - my husband is a little slower than some and we got to see everything without pushing it. We would recommend this tour highly.
