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.

"The highlights of our trip to Iguazu were the National Park and the waterfalls, also the well set up access throughout the park and over the falls. Amazing views. The tracks and viewing platforms were well cared for and easily accessible . Seeing both the Argentinian and Brazilian views was great. Transport was good, comfortable and reliable. It was great being picked up and taken back to the airport and to our hotel.
Improvement recommendations: I would recommend if visitors where taking the boat trip at the bottom of the falls in winter as we did that it would be suggested/recommended to buy or for your tour guide to provide/loan a plastic poncho or waterproof jacket or something similiar to stay dry. After the waterfall trip we then took the boat trip down river and then the jungle truck back in the late afternoon. We were very wet and unpleasantly cold by the time we reached our hotel.
Our guide Diego was excellent, very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly.

Project Expedition is a Wonderful company, Great to work with. Rob and his staff go above and beyond to make sure your clients are well taken care of on their excursions. My client were very happy with their Jeep Tour in Cozumel and would highly recommend to others. Project Expedition made sure they were picked up at the cruise ship and returned on time. I Love working with Project Expedition and look forward to working with them in the future.

We loved our day trip to Rio Celeste from Guanacaste. Our tour guide stopped along the road several times during our ride to the volcano to point out birds, plants, and other wildlife. During our hike at the volcano he did a great job sharing his knowledge of everything we encountered. The tour exceeded our expectations!

PE was an excellent mix of self serve with expert advise. I prefer to create my own family itinerary rather than just get some stranger to figure out what we are going to do. But in many locations it is tough and time consuming to find all the possible options and make the right contacts. Rob at project expedition filled this gap perfectly.

They offer a menu of items to mix and match and gave us some excellent personal advice without any sense of pressure. I avoided the pressure of travel agents who have ties to certain companies or hotels and yet got some really helpful planning assistance. The price was at least as good as I could have arranged directly with the providers of the experiences.

Rob was really helpful even surprising us afterward to inquire with a little glitch we had with one adventure (a complete accidental injury to one of our party). It made me feel that had we needed more assistance Project Expedition would have been there for us. I will definitely be using them for every trip going forward.

The array of possible adventures was all that we could have wanted. We probably would not have even thought to book a local cooking experience which turned out to be one of the major highlights for the kids and adults in our group.

The experiences we booked were seamless and wonderful. The people arrived to meet us when and where they should and all the paper work and payments were pre done so it was effortless. The experiences were professionally run and very friendly fun.

"Visiting patagonia was a long held dream. It lived up to my expectations from an cultural and environmental point of view. The Patagonian step has presence like no other i have experienced in many years of travel.

I suggest to other travelers to do as much as you can in your time available. You may never get the
chance again.


I had a very good holiday. Some challenges with language as my spanish is minimal, but very enjoyable,"
