      Amboise Mar 12, 2014 at 6:51 AM

      Does anyone know a way of contacting a free lance driver and van to take us around our designated route? We don't need a guide or anything. This is party of six who is not too keen on driving. The tour companies are total rip-offs.What we need is a friendly amateur who'd like to make a little money. Suggestions?

      We are 5 adults (with luggage) who will be disembarking at Port de Grenelle and traveling to Tours in Sept. We thought it would be easier to take a taxi from the boat, rather than a taxi to the train. Is there a taxi or car service that could accommodate us?

    • BUS to Blois

      Blois Jun 4, 2013 at 9:28 AM

      Hello everyone, I will be arriving at 640am to Charles de Gaulle Airport Paris, and I need to go to Blois.

      I find it a little expensive to take a train from CDG T2 to Saint Pierre Des Corps at 4km of Tours, and then another train to Blois - Euro 68, on 7th June.

      The other method seems to be to take the RER from CDG to Paris Austerlitz and then a Intercites train down to Blois. However, the train to Blois is at 0738 or at 1238, which 12.38pm will be a little late for me as I want to try to visit both Chambord and Cheverny in a day...and yet 07.38am at Paris Austerlitz is too rush for me since I land at 6.40am.

      Does anybody know of a bus from Paris to Blois? Or a slightly cheaper but pretty fast way to Blois from CDG?

      Thank you...

      I'm planning to visit the Loire valley next month. The plan I have in mind is to travel from Paris to Chartres, Chartres to Amboise, Amboise to Loches, Loches to Tours, Tours to Azay-le-Rideau, Azay to Chinon and from Chinon back to Paris. To and from Paris I plan to travel by train, but want to know if there are bus services between the other towns I plan to travel to. I plan to do these rounds in two days!

    • 3 days in Tours, 1 in Lyon

      Tours Mar 5, 2012 at 1:44 PM


      I will be visiting Tours with my wife and 4-year old son next week and would greatly appreciate input on favorite family-oriented activities. If you had two days to spend, how would you fill the time? Obviously with a 4-year old we will unfortunately not be doing any bike rides but we are open to hiking and touring by car. My wife wants to see gardens and castles... I'd like to see interesting architectures and areas of historical importance.

      Staying at the Clarion Chateau Belmont.

      Would it make sense for us to hire a car during the day for tours? Take a bus? Arrange tours at the hotel? I'm basically starting from scratch.

      Also a specific question on the train... we will take a train from Paris to Tours on the first day... what is the best way to get to hotels from the train station in Tours? Are there plenty of taxis or should we arrange something ahead of time?

      I will continue to read through this forum for ideas, but wanted to get this posted given the trip is next week.

      Thanks for your input!!
