Loire Valley Castles Day Trip: Chambord, Cheverny and Chenonceau

Loire Valley Castles Day Trip from Paris

Depart from a central Parisian location in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and head into the heart of the verdant Loire Valley. Arrive at the turreted Chambord Castle, an impressive structure that boasts the title of the largest Loire chateaux, and disembark to discover the richly decorated rooms within. Admire the intricate spiral staircase that snakes up to the spires of the rooftop terrace and hear how Leonardo Da Vinci is reputed to have designed the interior.

See, too, Cheverny Castle, one of the Loire Valley’s most beautifully furnished chateaux; marvel at an extensive collection of furniture dating back to the 17th-century and discover that Belgian creator of Tintin, Herge, was inspired to create Marlinspike Hall because of Cheverny Castle.

Next, travel to Chenonceau Castle to admire its picturesque riverside position, and hear of the prominent women that have lived there throughout history.

Guests traveling between November 1 and March 31 will receive a traditional lunch and drink. Those traveling between April 1 and October 31, lunch is not included but your guide will offer recommendations on excellent restaurants and cafes.

Please note: On Mondays and Saturdays, the tour will visit Amboise instead of Cheverny.

Loved, loved, loved this tour! It is a little chunk of but so worth it. Driver was courteous and friendly, tour guide Vincent? was so knowledgeable and entertaining with little tidbits of info about each chateaux and it's inhabitants. Lunch was provided and was pretty good...three courses with table wine included. Long day, but I'm so happy we did it!

3 great chateaux - especially enjoyed Chenonceau.
Full day tour - plenty of walking.
Visited Amboise instead of Cheverny on our day
Had to shuttle our schedule as original reservation cancelled due to lack of participation, but Viator very helpful
to transfer reservation to another day that worked with our schedule.

Excellent tour, would love to do it again. We went on a Monday and got to go to Amboise instead of one of the other chateaus which is closed on Mondays. We had plenty of time to spend at each chateau and also got at least 1hr 30mins to spend exploring the beautiful town of Amboise after spending about 40mins doing a tour inside the chateau. This tour does leave early and arrives back to Paris late but is well worth it!

Highly recommended. It would be nice to have a shuttle service to the entrance for people who have some mobility issues as long way to walk for some.
