Amazing! 4.8/5 Expedia Guest Rating

Journey into the stunning French countryside and escape the bustle of Paris on this tour to the Loire Valley. Explore three of the famous fairy tale-like castles in the region as you enjoy delicious wine-tastings along the way. See how wine is produced and sample plenty of the white and reds on offer.

Your first stop on the tour is Chateau de Chambord, which you may recognise as the inspiration behind the castle in Disney's Beauty and the Beast. The castle is enormous and breathtaking in its extravagance, with spectacular architecture, luxurious furnishings and wild gardens with resident deer and boars.

The next stop is Chateau de Nitray, a family-run castle completely different in atmosphere. Here, sit down to a hearty lunch of authentic rural dishes and sip a crisp Sauvignon blanc or savour a full-bodied Cabernet rouge. Meander through the vineyards and learn about the tradition of wine growing in this region.

Finish your exploration of the Loire Valley with a visit to the Chateau de Chenonceau (Ladies' Chateau). This elegant 16th-century castle is picture perfect, with its smooth, white façade and intricately painted wooden doors. Explore the beautiful interior with its original stone carvings, immense tapestries and intimate chapel.

Stroll through the stunning gardens and soak up the serene atmosphere before your relaxing journey back to Paris.
