Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Chateau de Chambord, Chambord, Loir-et-Cher, Centre-Val de Loire
From Paris, you'll head first to Chateau de Chambord. Disney fans will find this castle's turrets familiar; it was the inspiration for the castle in Beauty and the Beast. You'll learn all about the castle's captivating history from your professional guide, before getting your own chance to explore. Climb a staircase supposedly designed by Da Vinci; enjoy spectacular turret-framed rooftop views; glimpse wild deer around the grounds, and work up an appetite for the next stop.
Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

Stop At: Chateau de Nitray, Athee-sur-Cher, Indre-et-Loire, Centre-Val de Loire
A guided wine tasting and traditional three-course meal await you at Chateau de Nitray. The family that owns this charming 15th-century castle will proudly present their wines and rural French dishes, before granting you the freedom of strolling in the area for a while. The meal includes unlimited wine, but don't over-indulge: you'll want your senses sharp for the sights to come.
Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Chateau de Chenonceau, Chenonceaux, Indre-et-Loire, Centre-Val de Loire
Last but not least is a visit to the elegant Chateau de Chenonceau. The chapel, bedrooms and magnificent vaulted kitchens are still furnished and decorated from times gone by, showing off the castle's many sweeping stone carvings. Don't miss the impressive main hall, which spans the river Cher, or the gardens cultivated by Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de Medici, two of the famous owners that earned Chenonceau the nickname "the Ladies Chateau".

After a guided tour, you'll have a choice: continue exploring, or indulge in a second wine tasting in the castle's vaulted wine cellar.
Duration: 3 hours

Three uniquely beautiful castles, good food, and wine, all amid the scenery of the Loire Valley: this tour is a feast for the senses.
