Discover the castles of Blois, Cheverny and Chambord, three highlights of the Loire Valley listed at the World Heritage by the UNESCO. This fully inclusive one day tour includes the entrance fees to the castles, an expert guide to show you around and a French lunch with local food and wines near Cheverny.

In the morning, guided tour of the castle of Blois, former 13th century fortress. The castle of Blois is famous for its magnificent courtyard built around 4 buildings from 4 different eras: the 13th wing, the gothic 15th century wing built by king Louis XII, the 16th century Renaissance wing built by King Francis I, the classical 17th wing built by Gaston d’Orleans, brother of king Louis XIII. Your tour guide will take you through the Renaissance wing: guards room, queen Catherine de Medici’s private apartments, king Henry III’s private apartments, where took part the assassination of the duke de guise, one of the most tragic events in the French history.

At lunch, you will be welcome in a charming domain for a guided tour with wine tasting (Cheverny and Cour Cheverny wines) and enjoy a typical meal.

The afternoon starts with a visit of the castle of Cheverny. Privately owned and built in the 17th century, the chateau de Cheverny is located in an estate that has been owned by the same family since the 13th century. It is famous for its collection of furniture and tapestries making it the homiest castle in the Loire Valley. You will also be impressed by the amazing pack of 80 hunting dogs, visible every day.

Later in the afternoon, you will head to the castle of Chambord. Probably the most spectacular castle in the Loire Valley, with its 426 rooms, 282 fireplaces, 77 staircases, it was built in 1519 by king Francis I as a hunting lodge. It is situated in a huge walled 10000 acre large forest, making it the size of Paris. Your tour guide will take you through the king’s apartments, the terraces and will show and climb the amazing double helix staircase, possibly attributed to Leoanardo Da Vinci.

At around 5.30 pm and after a1-hour drive you will be back to the Tours tourism office.
