    A Fascinating Tour of Three Loire Valley Chateaus

    Participate in a full day Loire Valley tour departing from either Tours or Amboise. We will pick you up in designated meeting points in either of the two towns. Meet your English speaking driver guide who will go over the itinerary and program of the day. The tour includes the visit of 3 Loire Valley castles: Château de Blois, Château de Cheverny and Château de Chambord as well as a wine tasting session in Cheverny.

    Guided visit of the Chateau of Blois

    The chateau of Blois is unique by its combination of 4 styles: medieval, Gothic, Renaissance and classical. Home of kings Louis XII and François I, it keeps the memory of a tragic historical event.

    Wine tasting at a local winery

    The “Cheverny” appellation produces elegant red wines from pinot noir and gamay as well as fruity white wines from chardonnay and sauvignon. You will enjoy this moment to taste a wine for real connoisseurs: the “Cour Cheverny Appellation”, a stunning white wine made from a grape called Romorantin, imported by King François I into the Loire Valley.

    Lunch at leisure 

    Guided tour of the Chateau of Cheverny

    It has been owned by the same family since the XIIIth century. Thanks to one of the most beautiful furniture in the Loire Valley, The Marquis Hurault de Vibraye, thas succeeded in giving warmth and life to his chateau. The chateau, which led to the creation of Moulinsart in the famous comic book Tintin, is also famous for the tradition of the horse-back hunt and its impressive pack of 100 dogs. You may have a chance to witness the spectacular daily event of “the dogs’ soup”.

    Guided tour of Chateau Chambord

    Drive to the Estate of Chambord, a national game reserve as large as the town of Paris. The château de Chambord is a unique monument by its architecture and proportions. Leonardo da Vinci probably took part in the conception of the project. With more than 400 rooms and its double spiral staircase, Chambord is a highlight of the Loire Valley. After the visit, we will drive back to Amboise and Tours to drop you off and that will be the end of our services.

    Drop off in Tours at the end of the day.

    Guided Tour of Chenonceau Castle

    Arriving in the Loire Valley, you’ll start your day tour touring the Château de Chenonceau. The “Chateau des Dames”, bridge built across the Cher is famous for the prominent women who lived in it (Diane de Poitiers, Catherine de Medicis…) and for the beauty of its Renaissance Gardens.

    Tour and Wine Tasting in a Cellar Cave

    In a cellar from the XVIth Century, three generations of connoisseurs carefully selected and aged local wines for long periods, aiming to give a true expression of the Terroir. Situated in front of the Loire River, our picturesque site is in the middle of the Loire By Bike route.

    Lunch at leisure in Amboise

    Guided tour of the Royal Chateau of Amboise

    After lunch, you will tour the Royal Castle of Amboise, residence of Charles the 8th and young François d’Angoulème, (the future Francois the 1st). Here you will discover perfect examples of the transition from Gothic to Renaissance styling, as well as the Saint Hubert Chapel which shelters the final resting place of Leonardo da Vinci.

    Guided Tour of Chateau Clos Lucé

    The tour would not be complete without taking you to meet The Genius in his Chateau du Clos Lucé, only a few short steps away from the Royal Castle. This is where da Vinci spent the last three years of his life and passed there in 1519. After touring his bedroom, office, reception room and kitchen, stand in awe at the Invention Room, where models of Leonardo's most spectacular machines are on display.

    Drop off in Tours at the end of the day.

    Meet your Guide at the Tourism Office in Tours

    Come experience a full day of castles and gardens during this fantastic Loire Valley tour! In the morning, we will come and pick you up at the tourist office of the city of Tours or town of Amboise. Meet your English speaking local driver guide who will go over the itinerary and program of the day. Your tour today includes the visits of Azay le Rideau, Gardens of Langeais and Villandry Castle & Garden.

    Visit Azay Le Rideau Castle

    Your fist stop of your Loire Valley day tour: Castle of Azay le Rideau. There, you will have the opportunity to visit the iconic castle, built on an island on the Indre river. The castle was built in the 16th century under the patronage of King François I, who loved to come spend time in the Loire Valley. With our day tour of the Loire Valley, you will visit the inside of the castle as well as the gardens, including the famous water mirror with detailed explanations provided by your English-speaking guide.

    Enjoy a memorable wine tasting

    The vast majority of the Bourgueil or Chinon wines produced are red, and only a couple percents of the grapes end up in rosé and white. The vines of this estate are ideally spread out over the entire "terroir" covered by the appellation, from the gravel shores along the Loire River to the clay, limestone and sandy soils of the hills overlooking the valley. The red and rosé wines produced in the domain are presented under the appellation "Bourgueil" AOC. They stem 100% from the " Cabernet Franc" grape introduced by the monks of the Abbey in the 11th century.

    Free time for lunch

    After lunch your Loire Valley tour will take you to Château de Langeais

    Imposing medieval fortress of the 15th century which boasts towers, ramparts, rampart walk and a drawbridge, the Château de Langeais also possesses a beautiful Renaissance facade on the garden side. Remarkable, the inside of the Château de Langeais is richly and splendidly decorated. This is where King Charles VIII and Queen Anne of Brittany’s sumptuous wedding took place in December 1491. This marriage marked the beginning of the incorporation of the duchy of Brittany into the French kingdom.

    Guided tour of one of the most spectacular gardens of Touraine: Villandry

    The landmark there is a small country castle built during the Renaissance times and modified during the 18th century. However, the most interesting thing in Villandry is certainly the castle’s huge gardens. In the early 20th century, the new owner of the castle, Joachim Carvallo, decided to recreate the Renaissance garden to give the Villandry its grandeur back. If you are lucky enough to have a sunny day on your visit, you will love strolling along the flowerbeds and around the lake.

    By its diversity and originality (Love Garden, Kitchen Garden, Aromatic and Medicine Plant Garden, Water Garden and the brand new Sun Garden) and by its sheer size (15 acres, 1150 linden trees), Villandry is the Loire Valley garden not to be missed.

    After the visit return to Tours.
