Loire Valley Private Tours

Loire Valley tours, Loire Valley private tours, personal tours, ToursByLocals
Be entranced by the Loire Valley where fairytale Renaissance chateaux and riverside vistas make it easy to imagine the bygone glamour and riches of French aristocracy. Take a Loire Valley tour with a local guide and learn all about the romance and intrigue of castle life hundreds of years ago.

The entire Loire Valley, with its abundance of fine chateaux and grand manor houses, has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Meandering with your guide along its rural laneways, you can take your pick of some of France's most beautiful sites. See the 'double helix' stairway (believed to be a creation of Leonardo da Vinci) at Chambord, the largest of the Loire castles. Wander the lovely grounds surrounding Chaumont Castle and breathe in magnificent views of the Loire.

You can choose from one of our suggested itineraries, or work with your guide to create your own. We want you to leave the Loire feeling you've seen the best this charmed region has to offer.

  THE TOURSBYLOCALS DIFFERENCE
  • Choose your own guide. See their photos, read their bios and communicate with them prior to booking your tour.
  • It's more affordable than you might think. Our pricing is per-tour NOT per-person so if there are 3 or more in your group, you'll probably pay less than if you took a big bus tour.
  • Every tour is private. Your guide will spend time only with you and the people you're traveling with.
  • Go at your own pace. See as much as you can or slow things down to a saunter. With your private guide, your day is flexible.
  • Benefit from a local's knowledge. Access more intimate, out of the way spots that have never seen a bus tour.
  • Every tour is customizable. See the sights YOU want, try the food YOU crave, learn about what interests YOU the most.
  • Questions? Talk to a REAL person. Our customer support team offers reliable, friendly service plus a 24 hour emergency hotline.
