Once in a lifetime not to be missied experience. The 2000 candles are something you can't see anywhere else and they had fireworks before we left which were grand. There were two couples in the van with us one of whom flew in from NYC for a long weekend just to come to this ..can't wait to go back better then the inside of Versailles we both thoight
Really pleasant and relaxing tour, good meal and beautiful fireworks show afterwards.
Magical evening, pick up was on time and dinner was good quality. Plenty of time to explore the house and garden which were both stunning. Would recommend warm clothing as it became very cold by the end of the evening.
Picked up nicely at hotel in van with only 6 other people, taken directly to site, nice three course dinner with of course wine, then taken to tour of Palace, bypassed long lines and entered nicely and spent enjoyable time in the castle instead of waiting in long lines outside. Should make note not handicapped accessible, but the steps were not enough to stop my wife. At the end after the fireworks, taken back to the hotel. Nice.
The tour was to celebrate a pre 'Mother's Day' dinner for my mother. She absolutely loved the dinner, Vaux le Vicomte palace its history and in particular, the fireworks.
It was an unforgettable eve! So romantic and relaxing. It was worth every penny!
This tour is a must see. This was a very good evening. Seeing Vaux-le-Vicomte and the gardens in candlelight was a delight.
A fabulous castle and evening experience. Thanks to the family who keeps the structure and grounds in such beautiful condition. The audio guide was terrific. Dinner was just ok so I think it would be possible to do this tour on one's own if the information was available regarding the saturday night fireworks shows. It would be much less expensive. Also, a dress code should indicate cobblestones and gravel underfoot. Good shoes are trashed so if a guest is thinking of dressing up for a dinner inside a castle, they are mistaken. Better to wear hiking boots.
Very Good. Enjoyed this tour. We really felt we should have had more time to fully experience this venue - we ran a little tight to a timescale. We arrived just in time to have a quick look at the carriage exhibit or stroll the garden, but not both which is what you pay to do to get your full worth of the trip - the dinner was very good and the ambience was splendid. Touring the chateau at night was a nice idea but it was a bit dark and could have done with some feature lighting as well as the candles.
Beautiful place. My biggest complaint is that our driver was late picking us up and so we did not have time to walk through the lovely gardens. That was really a bummer!!!!!
What I enjoyed about this tour is the company picks you up at your hotel, transfers you to a comfortable bus that takes you to the Vaux-le-Vicomte. Our tour guide was great and was with us the entire time. The Vaux-le-Vicomte itself is lovely and the dinner was great. However, it was not the same that was listed on the description. The tour description had me prepared for something different and my expectations were set pretty high. The thing says dress is formal. Ladies do not wear your nice heels as you will be walking on gravel the entire time there; it was to the point I did not even want to walk through the beautiful garden. We were the most dressed up people. Dinner was outside and they seat you with other tourist that went the do it yourself route. If I would have not read the tour description on the website I would have been very pleased with the tour but then again I am sure this could have been a do it yourself, I just enjoyed not having to plan or worry about transportation. Overall great food!!
What an amazing place! Beats dealing with the crowds and rushed viewing of the Palace of Versailles. The candlelight makes it even more spectacular. Next time we'll make sure we're there for the fireworks too. Just a pity the fireworks aren't every Saturday night.
A very nice evening. If you are planning on going here and Versailles in the same trip go here first. Otherwise you will be disappointed. It was not overly crowded which was nice. They are rennovating the palace right now so there is plastic sheeting on parts of it, but it was quiet and romantic evening. The food was ok, if you are going for the food you will be disappointed. My steak was good, but my husband's fish was a disappointment. They are understaffed at the dinner so we waited a long time. Though we were outside so the view from the terrace was pretty as the candles were lit. The candlelight tour was very good and it was nice not being surrounded by large crowds. A nice evening overall and our guide Bernard was very good.
