per adult Price is C$256

Step out of Paris and into a fairytale, travelling in air-conditioned comfort to the beautiful Loire Valley. This part of France is dotted with magnificent castles that once housed the country’s nobility and on this expertly crafted tour, you’ll get to live like one of them! Enjoy local food, wine tastings, and the chance to wander the halls of three astounding châteaux, all with an expert tour leader to coordinate the details and entertain you with anecdotes about the region between stops.

From Paris, you’ll head first to Château 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 guide, before getting the chance to explore its beauty for yourself – and work up an appetite for the next stop while you’re at it!

A guided wine tasting and traditional three-course meal await you at Château de Nitray. The family that owns this charming 15th-century castle will proudly present their wines and rural French dishes to you, before granting you the freedom to explore their stunning estate.

Finally, you’ll visit the elegant Château de Chenonceau. Don’t miss the impressive main hall, which spans the river Cher, or the gardens cultivated by Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de Medici. After the tour, you can continue exploring or indulge in a second wine tasting in the vaulted wine cellar.

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

Michelle and Brad were terrific tour guide. Both are great story teller touching a little bit of history and the people about the Castles. The wines we tried at Loir specially the Chateau de Nitray was amazing with a price point that is unbeatable. My husband and I had a great time.
