Full description
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. Marvel at the extravagant architecture and double spiraled staircase of the royal Château de Chambord. See the hundreds of columns and spires that adorn its roof. End the day at the former home of King Francois I, and see the tomb of Leonardo Da Vinci at Amboise village and the Château d’Amboise. Confiscated by the monarchy in the 15th century, it was a favorite royal residence and extensively rebuilt.

We had a great time learning the history of the castles we visited as well as walking through each castle. My only concern is the timing of our arrival back to Paris. The tour was scheduled for 12 hours (7am to 7pm), but we arrived back at 8:30pm, disrupting our dinner plans.

Even though we were the only ones on the tour - it went on ad schedulef Our driver guide - Tony. Was a history major at university and gave us a weslth of information that we would not have learned on our own. The tour is a MUST SEE when visiting Paris and Tony is sbsolutely the guy to request.

Nice and compact trip. Also: Outstanding GYG customer service

Due to a flight cancellation on my way to the travel destination, I could not have taken the trip as planned. In addition, the cancellation period had expired so that I could no longer rebook. Thanks to the uncomplicated and very accommodating Getyourguide customer service, I was able to cancel my son's ticket (who was no longer able to participate due to the flight cancellation) and postponed my own trip by a day. The trip itself met all my expectations. Thanks a lot!
