The pickup and ride to Chambord went smoothly and we arrived at the castle before it became busy. The audio-video guides explained the rooms as we walked through them, but we found ourselves hurrying to finish by our 11am rendezvous. The ride to lunch took us through beautiful countryside along the Loire river and we enjoyed lunch at a restaurant in the caves in the hillside. We finished with a visit to a winery in Vouvrey where we walked through the sparkling wine cellars and enjoyed tasting several styles of wine. We thoroughly enjoyed the day
