This is amazing. Tour guide quite helpful. Bus has huge glass window so great views along the way. Had lunch at first shuttle. Very yummy. Spent a long time viewing each room. Highly recommended.
Highly satisfactory. By far the most convenient and efficient means of visiting these two fabulous castles. The audioguides worked well.
i had studied the history of this two wonderful chateax in college, so it was especially meaningful to actually have the opportunity to visit them!
Excellent, well organized tour. Plenty of independent time as well as tasty meal, chateau audio tour, candlelit walks and fireworks.
We didn't expect to have a guide on the bus with us, but she was wonderful! She gave us a brief tour of the city as we left and filled the traffic jam with jewels of knowledge for our group on the way home. YES! We will certainly use you in future European visits!
We had the driver pick us up at our hotel highly recommended as you don't get back until after midnight. He was a dream---so kind, considerate. Our dinner at the palace was lovely we opted for a bottle of champagne at an additional nominal charge. It was wonderful touring the candle-lit castle with few guests, but the best: our own, private, fireworks show! It was spectacular!!! I can't write enough about this experience. It was one of the best things we've ever done, and I can't recommend it enough!
The tour was exactly as advertised, very efficient and friendly service. Highly recommend Vaux le Vicomte - an under-advertised gem of a Chateau. Fontainebleau is bigger and more famous, but Vaux le Vicomte gives you a better idea of the elegant lifestyle.
This tour was amazing!
My wife and I were very pleased with the service. It was an amazing experience, it may not the most economical way to visit two beatiful chateaux in one day it was well worth money experience. Transportation was comfortable, on-time and service was very proffessional. I would highly recommend this tour again.
Excellent tour and related service. Well worth the cost.
The Palace and grounds were beautiful.
Our driver/tour guide picked us up on time at our hotel and was attentive and informative the entire trip.
My wife fell ill during the tour and the driver made a special effort to ensure she and I were comfortable, etc.
Very pleasant short tour. Saves you time as it is not straightforward to reach Vaux Palace on your own.
The tour was exactly as described on the Viator website

Very nice drive through the countryside and very informative about the history behind the buildings and the people involved. A very pleasant excursion. I definitely recommend this trip.
Vaux le Vicomte is fascinating -- its history, its construction, garden surprises. The audio tour is excellent -- pictures on the handheld display help verify you're in the right room! The bus was on time and comfortable.
Don't get alarmed when you walk into the office for check in. The staff at the touroffice handle the customers with speed, efficiency while being friendly. Anthony was especially helpful. Our.driver departed on time, was friendly during our dest6. Would recommend company.
Great tour but could have been enhanced with a handout explaining entrance procedures and diagrams,
We were a bit delayed out of Paris and did not have time to see the carriage museum. There was no choice at dinner which was a bit problematic for the picky eaters in our group, but most of us enjoyed the food and service was good. The chateau itself and the audio guide were wonderful-lots of time and space no crowds! to look around. We also enjoyed the fireworks. Wish someone had advised us to explore grounds first as it was too dark to really see much once we were out of the chateau. Overall, highly recommend
The traffic back in central Paris was terrible. It would be better to move the tour time earlier to avoid the traffic.
The driver's microphone did not project to the back of the minivan so very little of the short narration could be heard. The frenzied wait staff were not hospitable and were disorganized. They attempted to charge for the water which was included and did not offer coffee as it was trop tard or getting late. The candlelights created a very novel and romantic setting. The fireworks were less impressive. Overall, this tour is expensive and needs improvement.
This tour was well organised. However, there were traffic delays in travelling from Vaux le Vicomte to Fontainbleau. Our time was cut short at the second venue as a consequence, rather than being given extra time.
Some of us really enjoyed going through the palace, but I found it all too much alike and the roping of areas to direct the flow of tourists through the house very restricting. There were some very nice items to see, but mixed with many of less interest to me. Our favourite part of the castle was the kitchen area downstairs.The candles outside and the fireworks were beautiful and were the only thing we saw like that on our trip to Europe. I may have liked the tour better if I spent more time in the gardens outside, but after following the inside all the way through I didn't have time or energy for the gardens.... Candlelight and fireworks- beautiful- castle okay.
Very pretty. Food mediocre at best. Thought we would eat outdoors by candlelight. No. Indoors, next to cafeteria. Fireworks 5 mins. Driver had never been there before. Guide was incompetent. Then they dare beg for tips. Go on your own by train, shuttle is free fr station. Eat outdoors at Charmille.
I would not recommend this tour to anyone as there was no tour. It was just transportation to the Chateaus and back to Paris.
I guess it was fine since I hate listening to useless trivial information from tour guides.
The palace, dinner and fireworks were well worth the time and money but there was a BIG issue as both the driver and guide did not know the route and we got list on the trip going to the palace. The guide appeared to be more concerned but a woman traveling with a small child and her stroller. It became apparent that she was associated with he and was observed pushing the stroller at the palac. When we arrived at the palace and received our audio guides our guide said just push any number and disappeared. Please replace this guide. For these reasons I am submitting a negative review
