Despite the early pick up at your hotel, 7 AM, this is one of my favorite tours. Heading the south of France by the A10 highway, and passing near Orleans, we get to the Loire valley area, where more than 200 castles where built. You can imagine that it will be just "a little" too short to do them all in one day, so we will visit the 3 castles that I consider the most representatives (if you don't mind).
I will drive you through the areas of "la Touraine" and "la Sologne". And we will visit the castles of Chambord, Chenonceau, and Amboise, where I will be pleased to guide you through the rooms. Lunch will be at Chenonceau or Amboise depending on our schedule and we will be back at the hotel around 7 PM if the conditions are good, traffic wise.


Places visited:

Chambord castle.
Amboise castle.
Chenonceau castle.

I can also propose le Clos Lucé or Blois as an option.

A Recent Review of this tour

What a fantastic tour! Our guide, Gustavo, picked us up on time in a beautiful, roomy vehicle & drove us to the Loire for a full day tour of 3 chateaus. Gustavo's has a great command of the English language and was easy to understand. He was extremely knowledgeable about each site we visited. Gustavo shared his knowledge in a fun way & we thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with him. I highly recommend booking with Gustavo, a highly qualified guide with a great personality!!
