At Loire Valley Time Travel we specialise in crafting personalised tours of France's beautiful Loire Valley. Visit the classic chateaux of the Loire Valley and discover hidden corners that only locals know, dine with farmers and artisans in their favorite restaurants, and visit award winning family run winemakers.
Since 2009 we have been using classic 1950's Citroën Traction Avant cars for all of our tours, an iconic vehicle loved by three generations of French people. Although they are now 60 years old you will be amazed by how comfortable the cars are and how much space there is in the back seat. Just sit back and enjoy the envious looks.
A family day out in a classic car.
We meet you at either your hotel or the train station and start the day with a drive to Chenonceau, the most iconic of Loire chateaux for a fully guided visit of the luxurious interior and the magnificent grounds. We then drive to Amboise, where you can lunch in one of the many restaurant and bars in front of the chateau, or you might like to buy a picnic to have overlooking the magnificent Loire River.
After lunch we visit the Chateau of Amboise for a fully guided tour of the home of so many French medieval and renaissance courts. Learn about the last years of Leonardo da Vinci and his attachment to the French court.
We then return to your hotel or the train station for your trip back to Paris.
€800(euros) for up to 4 people, starting in Tours, Sunday only. There is no problem with leg or head room in our classic cars, but they were built in the days when people were smaller, and if more than two people are travelling then ideally one of you needs to be quite slender.
Admission tickets and lunch not included.
• exclusive use of a classic Citroen, driver and tour leader for your private group
• flexible one day and longer tours in English with pickup from local hotels and stations.
• all entry fees, tasting costs, and lunch with wine in a carefully selected restaurant.
To help you make a decision about where to visit, we have designed a number of fully customisable one day and two day tours.
In addition to the fully inclusive day tours we also lead guided walks around some of the most famous chateaux.
