Side trips from Paris to the Loire Valley ( Chateaux )

Jump to last reply

Has anyone ever taken those side trips via bus from Paris to the Loire Valley to see the chateaux? From what I can see, it is about $205 per person for a 12 hr day trip to see Chambord, Chenonceau, and Cheverny all in the same day. It seems to me they are anxious to stop the bus on tours like that to get us to buy locally produced products. ( We had that unfortunate experience on a bus trip from Rome to Florence and never even got to see the Uffizi at all ). We will have to start from some central location in Paris at 7:15 am and lunch may or may not be included. I am leaning toward making out own arrangements and taking a train ( and perhaps a taxi or bus ) to Fontainbleau and I think Chantilly is also easily reached by local transport as well. Perhaps that would be more worth while. Maybe it would be better to go to France again in the future and just drive around in a rented car for a few weeks too, if we really need to see Chambord. I am having similar reservations about a bus trip to Mont St Michel...Any thoughts? and.....thank-you too ! Dave
