    • bike on train Orleans - Nevers

      Orléans Jun 22, 2014 at 1:14 PM

      We want to travel by bike from Saumur to Nevers, along the river Loire.
      After having arrived in Nevers, we want to put our bikes on the train and return to Saumur.
      Between Orleans and Saumur is a train-accommodation for bikes, but we cannot find that possibility between Nevers and Orleans.
      On internet we see some trainconnections between Nevers and Orleans.

      Question: can we put our bikes on the train there and and travel in a fast way along the river by train.
      Or do we have to change more times the train.

      Thanks in advance,

    • Accommodation in tours or nearby

      by bevhenry1960 Online Now Jun 3, 2014 at 9:27 AM

      my daughter and I are going visit tours 19th 0 26th June.
      We urgently require somewhere to stay as place we had booked looks TOTALLY unsuitable on google map - ie 1.5km from centre but down an unlit road with no public transport.

      I am partially disabled though only 54 so we would like a place that we feel safe in even if near Tours but with access to transportation or reasonable Taxi fare would prefer SC in a small flat etc but would consider anything at the moment.
      We have never been to France before except of course Paris so we are unsure of what to do.

      any information - help - would be appreciated

      Thank you

    • 3 days in Tours, 1 in Lyon

      by travisFL Online Now Mar 5, 2012 at 1:44 PM

      Hello!

      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!!

    • Looking for the best option for a day in Tours and around

      I will be visiting Tours in September 2011 with my wife and two teenaged children. We arrive at the Tours Train Station at around 9.30 a.m. and will be returning the same evening. Does the Tours City Council or the Tourism department operate any half or full day bus excursions to the nearby Chateaus? I have been checking the private tour operators and they seem to be a bit steep to me simply for travel from Tours to one or two chateaus!

      Also, which would be the best option to have lunch in Tours?

      Private car & driver?

      by SandiM Online Now Jan 8, 2011 at 9:00 PM

      I've looked at the Ligeris (Tours) website and saw what they have to offer for tours of the chateaux, however I'm pretty picky about what I want to see and when. We (mother and I) are staying right at Chambord at the St Michel hotel for 1 night, and browsing the chateau & grounds in the early morning. Then, we'll take the train and head to Tours for the afternoon and stay 1 night. I really want to find a tour group that will take good ol' ma and me to Azay le Rideau and Chenenonceau in the early morning for some photos of the (uncrowded) grounds and exterior of these 2 chateaux (not really necessary to view the interior), however I see that the Ligeris website doesn't offer this kind of tour. We don't drive (can't) and we don't really want to be hustled around in a van at 930am (we're ready to go at 7am). Are there any private (reliable) companies out there who can fulfill our demands? I don't think trains or buses go that way that early in the morning, do they? Thanks!

      hello
      i stayed in a chateaux in the loire valley about 8 years back and i don't remember the name of it. it was a small chateaux (we were the only ones who stayed there). there is a long straight tree-lined driveway. the room was immaculate - very deep red tapestry and decorated like a royal chamber. the town was *very* quiet - only one restaurant in town and we were the only ones there that night too.
      does anyone know the chateaux i am speaking of? the most distinct memory i have is the long tree-lined driveway.
      thanks so much!

      Is that possible to make. Most probably not. In that case do trains run often between these two stations?

      Is SNCF station located in the town? How far apart are these stations.

      Next day I want to take train to Amboise and Chennonceau. Will that be from the SNCF station or from St. Pierre Des Corp.

      Hi all

      We are a group of friends travelling to Tours for a concert. We need to find a way to return to Paris where we will be staying after the concert which will probably last until past 11pm. I've checked the train schedule on http://www.voyages-sncf.com/ and it appears that the latest train goes around 10.30 which is too early.

      Does anyone have any tips on alternate travel methods that might take us back to Paris around 11.30pm or even after midnight? Buss maybe, or something else. We don't really care as long as we dont have to spend the night there.

      Thanks a lot.
