Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Fontainebleau and Vaux le Vicomte Small-Group Day Trip from Paris. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
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
Our driver was so skilled at maneuvering through the busy streets of Paris and the highways to Fontainebleau, and she told us so much about each destination we visited. Lunch was excellent...just a great day all around!
My wife and I just spent 2 weeks in Paris for our anniversary. While we hesitated going outside this incredible and beautiful city, we thought a little day trip to see some of the surrounding chateaus would be interesting. Indeed it was thanks to our guide and intinerary. While it was a full day I felt we saw and learned alot. Both Chateaus were spectacular and everything was ideal. Our beautiful guide, whom I believe was named Celine, was amazing in her knowledge and personality. And she was a really good driver, negotiating us out and back to Paris like a real professional. Thank you Celine. You're the best! Oh, the small group, the nice van and even the food (and wine) were a big plus. This trip was a real highlight of our anniversary.
It was a very interesting tour. Vaux le Vicomte was very impressively beautiful, and I enjoyed the story behind it, too.
Of course, the sites we visited were unbelievable and added to the awe of the trip. The guide was fabulous-going into great detail on each visit, keeping everyone well informed and answering any and all questions.
Catherine was the "best" she made our trip sooo interesting with all the added facts even before we arrived at each location plus her TLC was gift in and of itself---what an amazing day!!!
A well organised tour to very interesting sites. Highly recommended. Beware of car break-ins in the Fountainblau car park. This happened to our bus!
All inclusive trip with lunch. Loved the guide, very informative and professional. The sites visited are also very nice. Hotel pickup were also very convenient. Recommended for anyone visiting Paris.
It was a fantastic day, very well organised and the tour guide was very knowledgable. A very enjoyable experience of the beautiful chateaux and countryside.
The journey was worth it and I enjoyed the company. The guide, Katherine, was friendly and helpful. You may like to consider this trip out of Paris if you have already spent a few days in the city.
Great tour of two amazing palaces [each more
interesting than Versailles]! Great lunch too at Vaux le Vicomte! Excellent guide in van made the tour even better.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour with our knowledgeable guide. A big piece of French history is well preserved.
Excellent tour. The guide was extremely informative and friendly, group size was ideal and preferable to large bus tours.
Superb - loved this tour - liked the small group and the guide was great - lunch was excellent and we all had a wonderful time.
We had an amazing day from start to finish. Our driver guide, Frederic was punctual, courteous, amusing, informative and very professional. The balance of the day seemed just right and the included lunch in Vaux le Vicomte was delicious and of a very high standard. We enjoyed being part of a small group trip rather than a larger tour and will most definitely book similar trips with your company again.
