It was an early start in the morning, but it was worth it. We used Viator to find a tour with a local tour company, Paris Vision. Our French guide was hilarious, incredibly knowledgeable and kept us entertained on the drive there and back. Well, the parts we were awake for anyway. He picked us up from a hotel and drove us in a small mini van which seated eight, with nice wide windows for snapping photos.
The drive alone was worth the trip. The French countryside drive is beautifully scenic, especially when passing through quaint towns and endless vineyards. You could drive yourself but I enjoyed having the tour because all we had to do was relax and take in the view!
