Loire Castles Tour

Culture and History tour in Paris

Tour Price : 690 EUR Duration : 12 hours Languages: French, English, Spanish, Japanese

The amazing Loire Valley can be the perfect getaway from the crowded and bustling Paris. A tour in this lovely place will help you get in touch with the French Renaissance and with the extraordinary stories about Francois 1st. Amboise with its stunning castle is going to be our first stop in the Loire region. This typical and lovely French town is going to reveal its beautiful castle to us. This impressive building is the symbol of the city that lies on the shores of Loire River. 
There are many things to discover around the Amboise castle. Among them we can include Leonardo da Vinci’s grave and a breathtaking French garden. Before his death, da Vinci became very close to Francis 1st. Further on, you’ll find out extraordinary stories about the castle and what happened with it during the World War II and about Francis the 1st and Leonardo da Vinci. These stories are known only by the locals, but they’ll gladly share them with you if you ask them to.  
After this visit we had lunch in a French restaurant called “Brasserie”.  After that we stopped at the so called “Ladies castle”, Chateau de Chenonceau. The locals and the tourists say that this is the Loire’s most impressive and charming castle. 
Take your time to walk and discover the beautiful gardens. You will be guided by some of my colleagues. Also, you can use an audio-guide and visit the surroundings alone. My recommendation is undoubtedly the audio-guide. Thanks to this extraordinary technology you can visit the castle in your own pace and enjoy every single sight. As soon as your peaceful visit will be over, we’ll take the car back to the bustling Paris. Still, you will be able to sense the calmness of the Loire Valley for the last time. You’re on vacation, so there’s no stress or rush.

Lynn and I had the most wonderful time on our day visiting the Loire Valley. David was an amazing tour guide.- young, fun and funny. He was able to provide us with all the information we needed on the area, the castles, etc. He gave us suggestions and the freedom to outline exactly how we wanted the tour to be. He was punctual and was never in a rush to get us back home. We felt "at home" with him and we will be sure to look him up for another tour. Thank you for making our trip memorable and enjoyable.
