Beautiful France...So much to see, but where to start? How about the unforgettable sites of the Loire Valley? Our guides will be at your disposal during the 8-hour private tour in a comfortable minivan. As locals, they know the Loire like the back of their hands and will take you to the best places of interest, including choice restaurants and wineries.
On our private tours, you're welcomed as a friend: we want you to enjoy a relaxing day and let us worry about the details. Our team will be happy to answer to all of your questions and give recommendations before as well as during your stay - we strive to orchestrate the perfect private tour and exceed your expectations.
All of our guides are licensed and bilingual. Each capable of providing as much historical and architectural detail as you're interested in knowing - both the highlights and the hidden treasures of the Loire Valley. Each have the full qualifications to take you through the protected sites (Chambord, Cheverny, Blois, Clos Lucé, Chenonceau, Royal Chateau of Amboise, Royal Chateau of Blois…)and outdoor sites (Villandry gardens, Tours, Chinon, Blois, etc.).
We love eating and drinking. Food and wine are part of French heritage and we are proud to promote our Savoir-Faire. We'll organize outstanding tastings in premium wineries and take you to boutique cheese farms and locally popular exquisite gourmet shops.
When you tour France with Loire Valley Tours guides, you're guaranteed to meet some of the region's most loved figures, representatives of the real France through its wines and food.
Our philosophy is to be genuine without taking ourselves too seriously, our guides do not lecture, instead taking you in as a friend while sharing anecdotes about kings, castles, and vineyards - illustrations of our daily life in this beautiful region.
Here is a taste of what we offer:
- Châteaux of Chenonceau and Chambord: Chenonceau is the not-to-miss château of the Loire Valley. Built across a river, it is unique in the world! As for Chambord, its unbelievable architecture will leave you speechless. To make it an even more memorable experience, we'll organize a wine tasting and home-style lunch at a smaller local winery - a way for you to experience the local specialties in a more intimate atmosphere!
- Vouvray and Chinon: if you're particularly focused on wines, then this is the private tour is for you! We suggest a tasting in the Vouvray area, known for its white and sparkling wines. Then its off to Chinon, known for the reds and rosés. To make this day even more special, how about enjoying lunch in a 16th century château?
