Train or car?

Jump to last reply

I am arriving at CDG at 7am on Aug 29. I need to get to Amboise from there. I am torn between a rental car from the airport or a train from CDG. I would rather take the train rather tan drive 3 hours after a long flight if you think it will work. From what I can see the train leaves CDG at 10 am. I think this might be the best option, bit the 10 min train change in Tours has me worried. Will I have to actually change trains or is this just a stop and I remain on the train to get to Amboise? Do you think I will be able to clear the airport and make the 10am train? Would I need to book these tickets in advance? Ultimately, I will be renting a car to tour the Loire. What do you suggest? Thanks for your help.
