Very well organized and professional. We left on time. Was a good combination to see together! My only wish was that we could have see some of the other parts of Fontainebleau rather than just the Grand Apartments.
We liked the tour and our guide was wonderful. This was less of a hassle than the Loire Valley tour. Take this tour, and learn.
A lovely day, with a terrific guide. The day was made more interesting with the history of the locations delivered by the guide, prior to our arrival at the locations.
We enjoyed our day .Fontainebleau is not to be missed. It was really impressive..Vaux le Vicomte was nice but I wouldn't go back and visit. It gave us more insight into the inner workings of a chateau(the kitchen, the stables etc.)
They just dump you there no help no information. Just another company that does not care. But the sites themselves were great.
The "tour" was just a bus ride. We were not given any help or information other than where to meet and the time.
The locations that we went to were interesting and audio commentary was about the people and their history not just about the item being viewed.
The tour was very good; a very nice, knowledgeable and courteous tour leader/driver. The tour bus was clean, comfortable and spacious; the 2 chateaus/palaces were really well worth visiting and the lunch included in the price was really fine [3 good-sized courses, plus wine, water and coffee].
Perhaps more time could be provided for the Fontainbleau visit to enable some time to visit the gardens as well as complete the entire tour of the palace interior provided. On our viist, there was not a large crowd and not all of the palace rooms were open - yet we were only able to complete the audio guide tour of the palace rooms in the time provided
Everything was exactly as mentioned in the brochure until when the driver was late to pick us up at the end of the tour. He was really late at around 45 minutes late, the whole group was waiting at the side of the road wondering what happen to our coach. No apologize or any words from the driver when he was arrived, which is not right. Other than that the castles are beautiful and very interesting, it is the highlight of my visit to Paris!!
A perfect evening! Helpful driver/guide to a magnificent spot. The fireworks over the beautiful landscape with full moon in cloudless sky capped off the night.
A more knowledgeable guide would have made the trip even more interesting. He didn't give too much information on the historical facts and the stories.
Very special tour. The evening was magical! I highly recommend for adults. I went with my aunt which was very nice but I think it's also a perfect tour for honeymooners.
It was a great day we enjoyed both chateaux. Our favourite was Vaux le Vicomte a really lovely place in lovely countryside, quiet, unrushed, and not overcrowded. The golf buggy hire to explore the beautiful grounds was a bonus. Fountainebleau was a good as Versailles and minus the masses.
An excellent example of a Chateaux in France. A must see!
Trip was great, both Fontainebleau and Vaux le Vicomte are spectacular and well worth seeing. The trip was very easy booked from Australia and well organised when we got to the departure location in Paris. The bus was on time for the return trip back to Paris and for the trip between both chateaux. The explanatory pamphlet distributed at the beginning of the trip with the entry tickets to both locations was easy to understand in relation to the time frames to be adhered to.
Vaux le Vicomte had a great audio tour. Fontainebleau audio tour was awful.
Our bus driver was excellent.
