Voor kleine groepen: kastelen in de Loirevallei, dagtrip vanuit Parijs
Reis door de glooiende heuvels van de Loire-vallei, een wijnstreek in centraal Frankrijk die op de werelderfgoedlijst van de UNESCO staat. Uw gids brengt u naar elk kasteel, welke u op eigen houtje kunt verkennen zonder daarbij verplicht bij de rest van de groep te moeten blijven.
Uw tour begint bij de grootste kasteel in de Loire-vallei, het Château de Chambord, dat is opgenomen in de werelderfgoedlijst van de UNESCO. Kom meer te weten over de ongelooflijke architectuur van het kasteel dat uit de Renaissance dateert — volgens legendes heeft Leonardo da Vinci bijgedragen aan het ontwerp van de dubbele helix-trap.
Ga daarna naar het Château d'Amboise, dat in de 11e eeuw oorspronkelijk als defensief kasteel werd gebouwd vanwege zijn strategische ligging met uitzicht op de Loire-rivier en in de 15e eeuw werd omgetoverd tot een woning voor de koninklijke familie. Stap binnen in de kapel van St. Hubert, waar de overblijfselen van Leonardo da Vinci zijn begraven.
Vervolgens hebt u wat vrije tijd die u door kunt brengen in het dorp aan de voet van het kasteel. Daar kunt u lekker even wandelen en na een wijnproeverij van uw lunch genieten.
Nadat u weer helemaal opgeladen bent, vertrekt u naar Château de Chenonceau, een 16e-eeuws kasteel dat is gebouwd over de rivier Cher. Dit is één van de meest populaire kastelen in Frankrijk, vanwege de prachtige binnen- én buitenkant. Uw dagtrip eindigt met de rit terug naar het oorspronkelijke vertrekpunt in Parijs.

It was good to be away from hustle and bustle of Paris, especially after a yellow vest protest the previous day. Sebastian was a great guide.
This was a wonderful trip! Our guide made so much of French history more understandable and it seemed to come alive as we walked through the three Chateaus. I loved the small group design for this tour.
Mareus was very informative and knew to get us there early to get a head start on the crowds for a Sunday. Kept us on time so we got to view the whole trip without feeling rushed. Was able to add stories and flavor to make it interesting. We happened to go on the last day of Tour de France which added some travel hiccups getting back into Paris, but Mareus was right in there making the best of it with us and got us through it like a champ. Thank you!
My wife enjoyed all three castle tours but we were subjected to uncomfortable transportation. the tour was approximately 12 hours long, 5 hours were spent at the Chateaus, lunch and wine tasting. The remaining 7 hours were in the mini van. We were required to sit in the front seat with the driver/tour guide. It was a bench seat with very little leg room on the passenger side. We were both surprised that this was acceptable.
I loved this tour because it gave us the freedom to explore on our own. Three gorgeous French castles and a wine tasting? How could you go wrong! Great itinerary and I never felt rushed even when we covered so much ground. This tour was a great option for us and I thought it was well done. One thing I would say is that our driver was not really a guide. If you're thinking you will learn a lot about the castles, you won't unless you get the audioguides or have a book. The guide gave a minor introduction to each place but mostly left us to ourselves. That was fine with us. Our guide was also a little off - since the majority of his job was to be a driver, I felt like he wasn't a very good driver. In the morning he was going super slow and over-cautious (even telling another woman in the front that he needed to focus on the empty three-lane highway) and then in the afternoon traffic driving like a crazy person without a blinker and lots of honking. I am from a place with terrible drivers (Boston) and I know one when I see one...which was like his whole job!
Great tour. Getting out of Paris for a nice was very nice and seeing all the castles in the Loire Valley was great. We got to see a different side of France, which was beautiful.
Excellent tour, operated by Paris Tour better than Pariscity Vision
Terrific experience. Our tour guide Philipe arrived at our hotel and the three of us and another guest headed off to the Loire valley. He was terrific. He is from Normandy and was a wealth of information about this region as well. The castles were great and we had ample time to see. The lunch was ok. All in all one of the best days we had on our trip to Paris. Next time on to Normandy!
Fabulous tour! Vehicle changed by tour operator to a small car, as there were only two of us. However, each of us has very long legs and the ride was, therefore, uncomfortable. Guide walked way too quickly for one of us, who is awaiting knee surgery in the near term.
This was our favorite tour. It was a beautiful sunny day and these chateaus are magnificent. There were only 8 of us with a great guide who was multi-lingual. We were picked up at our hotel and it was a comfortable trip out with a break for us halfway out. Our guide took us up to the entrances of the houses and met us afterwards. The chateau in the picture had two full time florists and the floral displays throughout it were some of the most beautiful I have ever seen. We got a great overview of chateau life and really enjoyed the tour. The pace was great - my husband is a little slower than some and we got to see everything without pushing it. We would recommend this tour highly.
