Full-day excursions explore exceptional chateaus and historic gardens outside of Paris.
Picturesque Voyages day tours are designed for a leisurely pace, allowing ample time to fully appreciate extraordinary architecture and garden design. We evoke the history of the chateau owners—the lavish parties and personal intrigues–that contributed to the history of France, and consider how these magnificent sites influence world cultural heritage.
Admission tickets are pre-purchased and included in the tour fee. We arrange private transportation and propose luncheon options that typify French cuisine and local specialties. Car service and dining costs are in addition to the tour fee.
Then & Now: Each tour begins with an iBook presentation of images selected from historical archives, providing a comparative context for viewing Paris today. After the tour, you can add your own photos to create a personal souvenir of your Picturesque Voyage.
Our private and small group tours are limited to 6 people.
