Description

Spend a day strolling around the moats of fairy tale castles as you dive into the rolling hills of the Loire Valley. Visit 3 different castles that date back to the 15th and 16th centuries, learn about the significance and function of historic French chateaus, and enjoy a tasty lunch along the way.

Meet up with your guide in downtown Paris and hop aboard a comfortable shuttle to cruise out of town, watching the landscapes shift from a jungle of bustling streets to a patchwork of pastoral scenes. Trace the bends of the Loire River as it leads you into the Loire Valley and waterfront Château at Amboise. When you arrive, hop out to get up-close looks at this former royal residence and check out the Chapel of Saint-Hubert, Leonardo da Vinci's final resting place.

Grab lunch and then continue on to the Château de Chenonceau, where you can learn about its long female-led history, cross over the Gothic-style bridge, and stroll through its classic French gardens. End your castle crusade with a stop at Château de Chambord, whose architecture offers textbook examples of French Renaissance style, and then return to Paris in the evening.

The castles were beautiful but the tour felt very rushed and there wasn’t sufficient time to appreciate the castles and gardens properly.
