This was just an unbelievable day of spectacular chateaus. Chambord is an incredible piece of architecture but enjoy the outside, as the interior is sparsely furnished. Cheverny and Chenonceau are both beautiful inside and out. We had lunch at the cafeteria at Cheverny and it was quite tasty, although hardly gourmet.
If possible choose a cool day for this tour. It is a very long day and with temperatures above 90F, we were exhausted by the end of the day.

Lunch needs to be included to make this a great tour since it is an all day tour. The Bus was comfortable and the guides were informative. Wish it was a little less rushed at each location.
