Loire Valley

Loire Valley
France’s most famous châteaux dot the verdant landscape of the Loire Valley. Known as the “Garden of France,” this region recalls the extravagant power of France’s royal yesteryear. Here, the ponderous Loire rolls calmly past some of the most breathtaking castles in Europe.

From the magnificent gardens of Villandry to the turrets of Amboise, the chimneys of Chambord to the arches of Chenonceau, each château is a fairy tale testament to the distinct personality of a sometime ruler. Nearby towns such as Tours, Orleans, and Angers bring to life pivotal moments in French history. “Garden of France?” If only our own backyard looked so lovely…

Most etr groups visit the Loire in combination with the French capital, Paris. The duration of the visits are usually one to three days, depending upon your desires.

As each etr itinerary is custom designed, we can provide you with just the right programme.

Our Airline Partners


For over 24 years etr has enjoyed partnerships with the world’s leading airlines including British Airways, Thai Airways, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Singapore Airlines, LAN Airlines, Royal Jordanian, South African Airlines, Swiss International, Air France, Austrian and Cathay Pacific, amongst others. And as airline agents we can secure for you the lowest available fares, even from remote locations, and even from some of Europe’s budget airlines. What we often suggest to many of our out-of-Europe client schools is for them to get a fare from a local agent and we’ll get one from our airline contacts here…and then use the lowest one. As we do not mark up airfares, you benefit financially. Take advantage of our flight expertise…all at no cost to you.
