Itinerary

Day 1 - Paris

We cross the western districts of Paris and take the Normandy motorway as far as Mont Saint Michel. Around noon, we will enjoy lunch at a restaurant.Sightseeing at Mont Saint Michel Abbey. Then we will begin our afternoon by climbing the famous monument, reaching the Abbey on the top of the mountain. Enjoy a guided visit of the Abbey, the Gothic "Marvel," and the area’s Romanesque areas. There will be free time for exploring the Gothic sections of the mountain and the village before we depart for Angers. The bus leaves Mont Saint-Michel at 4:30 pm for Angers (about 2.5 hours away) where you will spend the night at the Mercure Lac de Maine (or a similar hotel). Dinner will be served at the hotel restaurant.

Day 2 - Paris - Sightseeing at Château de Langeais

Sightseeing at Château de Langeais. After a good night's sleep and a delicious breakfast at the hotel in Angers, the bus will set off for the Châteaux of the Loire Valley. The bus makes a brief stop near Château d’Angers so you can view the exterior of the medieval fortress. The guide will also tell you about the castle. About one hundred kilometers away lies Langeais, where you will enjoy your first tour of the day. Follow your guide inside the structure, which is made up of two incredible châteaux. Take in the oldest keep in France (constructed around the year 1000) and the Château de Louis XI built in 1465 while you experience French history through depictions made with highly realistic wax figures. The guided tour of Langeais is followed by a chance to enjoy lunch on your own in Amboise, about 45 minutes away. Your guide will help you choose the restaurant where you want to eat.Sightseeing at Château de Chenonceau. It will take about 20 minutes for the bus to reach the next stop, Château de Chenonceau. Explore this castle that played a special role in French history and its awe-inspiring architecture built over the Cher river. It is also known as the "Château des Dames" and the guided tour will teach you about the history of this castle, built and renovated by many famous French women, including Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de' Medici. You can also admire the lavishly decorated rooms whose ornaments speak to the refined way of life in France.Sightseeing at Château de Chambord. Next, board the bus again for an hour-long drive to the imposing Château de Chambord. One of the largest Châteaux of the Loire Valley, Chambord will reveal its fascinating heritage to you during the guided tour of the royal chambers and other rooms located on different floors of the structure. Built by Francis I in the 16th century, the castle will impress you with its intricate architecture. Of particular note is the famed double-helix staircase. Finally, take in the large terrace with its majestic chimneys, offering a unique panoramic view of the château's park. The bus is scheduled to leave Chambord at 6:30 pm and should return to our agency in Paris around 9 pm.

"We arrived back into Australia on Sunday after spending a couple of further weeks exploring some more of South America. I found you through Google searching for tours that included Atacama Desert options.The Good online reviews from numerous other travelers convinced us to work with you. Also the variety that was offered on this tour suited as very well
The 4WD trip through Bolivia was amazing. It's like a different planet up there and was a real experience. The Salar de Uyuni at sunrise was fantastic on the 4WD tour. Truly a unique place.
We really enjoyed the hotel in Purmurmarca - Hotel El Manantial del Silencio. It had real character and drinking Argentinian red wine by the open fireplace was lovely.
All our guides were very good and were friendly and welcoming. Eddie, our 4WD driver did not speak English which made it a bit hard to converse with, but we were lucky enough to be travelling with an Austrian family who were able to relay information to us. The guides for the Tatio geysers and the Humahuaca day tour were very good at relaying everything in Spanish and English. Sorry - but I can't recall their names.
Just one suggestion: It would be worth noting to people that not all services run every day and this needs to be confirmed for the requested dates. This didn't put us out too much as we got to spend an extra day in the North of Argentina, but we may have shifted our internal flights around a bit have we known the bus didn't run on a daily basis.
Cheers, Mat"

Absolutely amazing website! Best way to see tour options for your favorite travel destination. I used this site for a trip to Costa Rica with a some friends. You will not find a site that has more options and information with easy online booking. The employees are quick to respond and very helpful answering any questions and recommending tours based on your preferences. Wish I could give 6 stars

Great service! Rob from Project Expedition really helped pick out the perfect trip for me. I ended up going Rafting on the Pacuare River in Costa Rica and it was beyond amazing. The team helped tailor the trip to my needs and went above and beyond to help me with any questions I had and offer assistance with other parts of my trip. I will definitely be using their services again!

I booked a Long Island wine tasting tour with 2 of my friends and highly recommend booking through Project Expedition! Rob was very helpful in suggesting tours in the region and was pro-active helping us find a date that worked for the group! The tour stops at 3 vineyards in Long Island and includes snacks and a lunch. Really great value! Next we're planning to do their white water rafting and wine tasting tour which also comes highly recommend. All in all, a great experience booking with Project Expedition!

As a travel agent I am very particular about the suppliers that I use because they are an extension of myself and my agency to my clients. Project Expedition has more than exceeded my expectations when it comes to a supplier. The customer service is amazing, exactly how it should be. They treat their customers and their agents the way they should be treated. I send as much business their way as I can and am excited about their growing options
