Half and Full-day excursions explore exceptional chateaux 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 an additional per person fee, they are pre-purchased by us and non-refundable. We can 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.
