Can you do a self guided tour from Paris to the Loire Valley and Versailles or is it better on a tour.
I recommend taking a tour. Look at bike tours because you see so much more. The tour guides know where to go and make it their job for you to have a great trip.
I find that the tour adds so much more info that you would not get otherwise. I always come away from a tour feeling that I got more than I thought I would. There have been times that I have gone back after a tour and just took my time and dawdled a bit.
