Despite the early pick up at your hotel by 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.

A Recent Review of this tour

Excellent tour! We wanted to see & experience the Loire Valley and we did. Vincent asked us what we wanted to see & do and we told him we wanted to include time for food and wine along with the castles. He managed a schedule that took us to Chenonceaux and Chambord, where we toured both of the chateau's. In between the two, he took us on a walking tour of Amboise where we had a very good lunch. Then, we drove to Montrichard where we had a tour of a wine cave and a wine tasting. I highly recommend Vincent.
