Discover Loire Valley Castles

Spend a full day enjoying the gorgeous Loire Valley countryside during a small-group 11-hour wine tour from Paris.

Get picked up at your hotel in Paris and head straight for the Château d'Amboise (the Royal Castle of Amboise). Enjoy a 1-hour tour with an audioguide. See the chateau, the gardens, and the chapel in which Leonardo da Vinci is buried. Learn about the castle's importance in the history of the region, as it was the gathering place for artists, philosophers, and humanists from all over France, Italy, and Flanders.

Enjoy lunch inside an atmospheric restaurant, situated inside what was once an ancient mountain cave house. Relax in front of the big fireplace and admire the exceptional woodwork in the cozy restaurant. Dine on traditional Loire Valley specialties after a welcome drink of Montlouis sparkling wine.

Visit a Chinon winery after lunch to sample some of the region's famous wines. Get a tour of the winery with an expert guide. Learn about the Chinon wines grown on the 2.5-acre (17-hectare) estate. Try six wines — one rose, one white, and four reds — along with other locally made products. Your day of tasting and exploration ends with transport back to your hotel in Paris.

Worth the time and money. The pick up and drop off at your hotel is a very valuable thing to have. Our guide, Larisa was the best! The drive out to the Chateau is about 2.5 hours, but the drive back into Paris is 3 hours since the vineyard you visit is a bit further away. The lunch is wonderful, the staff there was very friendly and helped us make decisions on the menu that you choose your food from for the tour. You will truly experience French cuisine here! Snails, souffle, duck liver, and plenty of wine. We had the catch of the day which they didn't tell us what that exactly was until we were done. I will leave it at that, but when we googled it in the car we thought - WOW, we ate that!? Have an open mind, enjoy the travel time and good wines at the vineyard.
