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.

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.

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

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.

This tour is a must see. This was a very good evening. Seeing Vaux-le-Vicomte and the gardens in candlelight was a delight.

Nice trip to VAUX-Le Vicomte. The dinner was nice and included wine. The time allowed for the tour felt a bit rushed but with the long ride from Paris it would be difficult to make it longer. The palace is beautiful and the candles made it a special evening. The fireworks were very nice although i was disappointed you could not hear classical music which would have enhanced it, tThere was music but you could only hear it off in the distance.) Think they need bigger speakers. Our driver was very helpful and dropped us off close to our hotel when we returned which was after midnight.

Beautiful chateau and grounds. The dinner was good but the service was very slow. Fireworks at the far end of the grounds conclude the evening.

Thoroughly enjoyed this evening. Selected option to meet coach at agency, no issues here. Easy to find and was prompt arriving. The Chateau itself is amazing and lovely to walk round. Shown to carriage museum first before dinner. Dinner was lovely. We had a table for two to ourselves but most of the others were grouped together in tables for 4-6 etc. Was a set meal with a foie gras terrine to start, chicken and mash main and a pistachio ice cream for dessert and coffee to end. The waiting staff were nice and helpful. We were in a private room so did not sit with regular customers in restaurant (note the chateau is still open to public at this time so there will be regular tourists around). After dinner is the tour of the Palace. Given audio-set so can tour at own pace. Afterwards made our way to garden for fireworks display around 10.50pm. Music is playing in the gardens and candles are lit everywhere. The Palace looks spectacular lit up at night.

My only main criticism would be that the guide told us all that we would not be dropped off at the pick up point but there would be 3 stops and asked us where we were staying so that he could advise where we should get off. It turned out that the metro station we were left at was closed for renovations and we had to navigate our way around the city to try and find another station to get us to that stop and then onto the correct line to get to our hotel. I just felt that if the guide is making the decision where to drop us the agency should check prior to ensure the stations are running. It was an arduous task navigating our way around the city at 1am in the morning especially when the city was heaving due to rioters out celebrating the Summer Solstice and it was difficult to move freely around.
