Fully guided 3 days
Highlights: The major Castles - Wine & Gastronomy

Transportation: Fully chauffeured private luxury car with your guide
Accommodation: 4* Hotel, downtown Amboise or Relais & Chateaux
This three day escape showcases the essential highlights of the Loire Valley. Personally guided on a custom designed route, you will experienced the sights, sounds and culture of the area. We kept only the major castles of the region to make sure you have time to enjoy the French way of life as well, and go side tracks for unique experiences. Wine and gastronomy are high on our list but don’t hesitate to tell us about your own favorites.
This tour has been conceived as a medley of the Loire Valley. It is perfect for a discovery week-end or a short break-away from the city life but can be fully adapted to your own schedule and/or interest.
Day 1: In the footsteps of Leonardo da Vinci
Upon you arrival in the Loire Valley, your guide will take you to Amboise, where Leonardo da Vinci spent his last years. Visits both chateaux of Leonardo and Francois the 1st and stroll down the picturesque pedestrian streets of this Renaissance little town.
Day 2: Majestic Loire Valley castles and a goat farm
Embark with your guide for a day in the most famous castles of the Loire Valley: Chenonceau and Chambord, and visit a local goat farm.
Day 3: A unique experience around the Loire valley wines
Some tourists just taste the wine, but you are going to “experienced it”. Be ready to “see” and “touch” it in a style offered to few travelers and in places open only to RiverLoire guests.

My husband and I were celebrating our 10th anniversary with a trip to France. We spent three days in the Loire Valley with RiverLoire. It was absolutely fabulous from start to finish. They were punctual, professional, service oriented, knowledgeable and a lot of fun. Both of our tour guides were wonderful, it was great getting to know them. We spent three days enjoying castles, small towns, wine tastings and an unforgettable trip to Thierry’s cave with a personal wine and cheese tasting. We were not an easy couple to please as we often changed plans the night before as to what we wanted to do the next day. They not only accommodated all of our requests and short notice itinerary changes, they constantly amazed us and provided us with a 5 star experience. They were so flexible and willing to please our every request. Their restaurant choices were superb and they went out of their way to make sure that we did and saw all that we wanted to. It was an absolutely top notch experience and I would highly recommend them.

Our 2nd day was everything about food and wine! As we toured, we learned about the delicious Vouvrays of the region. We toured a private troglodyte wine cellar with wine tasting of course and enjoyed a delicious lunch in Rochecorbon. We also took advantage learning Apéro à la Françoise with a private chef! So fun!
