Loire Castles Classic and Renaissance
You will be picked up at your hotel and then you will cruise down to the town of Tours by minibus, a journey of three hours. In Tours, you will be met by your local guide who will take you by minibus on a visit of three charming Châteaux. On your own, visit Clos Lucé in Amboise, where Leonardo da Vinci spent his final days, the beautiful castle Chenonceau where you will have lunch (drinks not included), and Chambord, the largest Loire castle. Finally, you will enjoy a wine tasting at Nitray Castle. You'll see several other castles: Montrichard, Blois, Chaumont, and Amboise, from your minibus along the way. This tour is a good choice if you have not seen the castles of the Loire valley and would like an introductory overview. At the end of the day we bring you back to your hotel in Paris by minibus. Or for a supplement you can stay overnight at the luxurious Château de Pray, ten minutes away from Château Amboise, and return to Paris the next day by your own means.
