Enjoyed this tour very much. We were picked up right on time and our driver gave us a wonderful history of the Fontainebleau chateau and French history. He also tied into art movements and explained to us about the painters who first painted open air in the forests surrounding the chateau. It probably would have been nicer if we went in the spring or summer when everything on the grounds would be alive and in bloom, but that was our choice to visit in January. I would not hesitate to book with Viator again.

We love going to this chateau. We were lucky that the tour was only for us. Our guide was very informative and this tour is not a full guide but once you are at the chateau, we have the radio set that will give you the history in each room. This is a beautiful chateau and we highly recommend it.

This was an amazing Castle, the history of it was incredible and the driver was so informative about the castle and the area. My daughter and I both found the inside of this Castle to be more beautiful than Versailles.

We nearly didn't make this tour but the company operators made sure we did, many thanks to them. Fontainebleau is staggering on your senses, the Chateau rooms are more overwhelming than any others I have seen. There was so much to see inside that we didn't get a chance to see the gardens. I would do this tour again.

The tour was an exceptional experience. I enjoyed discovering Fontainebleau at my own pace -- that's my favorite kind of tour. Our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable. Since I'm in second language acquisition, I compliment our tour guide for not only is correct, clear, fluent English but also his mastery of idiom and American culture.

Excellent trip. Was well worth it. The palace was amazing. Some parts even better than Versailles. Needed more time there, at least another hour would have meant we could have taken a more leisurely tour instead of rushing through. But overall well worth doing.

The tour guide shares with me the history during our trip to the Chateau, get the admission ticket and the audio equipment ready for my visit. He is experienced and answered all my questions raised. Yet, the Chateau is quite large. If you are interested to know every displaced items, 4.5-hour tour is not sufficient because the travelling time to and from the Chateau have already taken almost 2.5 hours.

This was a pleasant tour although a bit distracting as the guide had to speak in Russian and English so it felt like he was rushing through the information, at times. Fontaienbleau was enjoyable and certainly less crowded than Versailles. However it was an hour to the destination and an hour back so the time spent at the venue was much shorter than you expect when booking.

What a fabulous place ! An hours journey from central palace , it was great to be picked up from our hotel . The driver was very knowledgeable and friendly . The only downside to this trip being the short time allowed in the Palace ( just over 1 hour ) as you could easily spend a whole day here .

A good way to see a very historic chateau! Our driver picked us up from our apartment and provided interesting facts about Paris and the history of France, the drive to Fontainebleau was plesent and the van was very comfortable. The self guided tour was imformative and the chateau itself was amazing, after a quick walk around the gardens we were driven back to Paris. A really good afternoon.

This was a really good tour. What an amazing place to visit. The guide gave us a brief introduction to the Chateau and then left us to explore on our own. I would have preferred that he took us all the way through. Great tour though.

Great driver! Very congenial and well informed! Not enough time to really enjoy Chateau de Fontainebleu When we finished the self guided tour it was time to leave without seeing the gardens or other areas

I liked being transported in the van to our destination, and I loved the Chateau. Our guide, however, was annoying. His presentations seemed geared to idiots, rather, I should say, he spoke to us as if we were dim witted travelers, with no knowledge of French history. I expected more.

Beautiful site but guide only allowed us two hours to see palace and grounds. Guide was nice but moved pick up time from 110 to 140 and then only gave us 2 hours before heading back to Paris. Very disappointed. Needed 30 mins to an hour more. Get another tour operator
