Discover some of the finest castles of the Loire Valley on a small group, full-day tour from Paris. Transfer by air-conditioned minibus to the castles of Chenonceau, Chambord, and Amboise.

Walk in the flower gardens of the Château de Chenonceau, and gaze at the delicate arches that cross the Cher River. Learn the extraordinary history of the building, which was run by women for much of its time in existence. Continue to Chambord to investigate the largest castle of the Loire Valley.
