Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Chateaux de Fontainebleau and Vaux le Vicomte 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.
Instead of doing Versailles we chose to see two chateau's. Glad we did the tour from the beginning it was fabulous. The tour bus was new and modern which had a moon roof and seats very comfortable. The Vaux le Vicomte was my favorite as it was stately and in the country. Lunch at Vicomte was terrific but you need to allow time as you can't do all the gardens and include lunch so budget your time. The Chateaux de Fontainebleau is endless and at times boring but you can choose where you want to go. I would split my time and do some of the gardens which we only had a small amount of time as we didn't know better. This is a full day as we left at 9:00 am and arrived home at 6:30 pm. Viator I have used in New York and Chicago and for the price it is quality all the way.
Excellent tour with 2 very interesting Chateaux. Tour Guide was incredibly knowledgeable. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour.
Beautiful day!! Great tour guide who spoke fluent English/French. We actually liked this much better than Versailles and it wasn't nearly as crowded. Totally enjoyed this tour.
If I could give this tour a score of 6 out of 5 I would do it! It was exceptional. There was no time wasting so we had plenty of time to explore each chateau and their gardens as well. Both Vaux le Vicomte and Fountainbleau are places that should not be missed. Highly recommended tour - I would happily do all over again.
A very informative tour. Better than visiting three chateau in the Loire Valley with a much shorter trip and less tourists. Recommended highly
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour! On previous trips to Paris, we had not made it to either of these great tourist destinations. The day trip out of Paris using your tour services worked extremely well. It was well organized - we departed on time. The bus was great. The tour guide on the bus was helpful. Use of the audio guides was perfect since it allowed us to go through at our own pace which meant in areas that had more description than we needed - we just moved on to the next room. All in all - a terrific day.
This was a wonderful tour I enjoyed both the Chateauxs and could spend enough time at each.
These two chateaux are astonishing, and well worth the day trip. A coach takes you there, and then you have free time to visit on your own. Maybe take a picnic lunch to have in the gardens of Vaux le Vicomte. Great day.
Really nice tour, friendly people, and what we loved is that they take you there but you are on your own when you visit!!! You can take as long as you like or go as fast as you want. both castles are beautiful and worth the visit.
This was an excellent way to see two exciting Chateaux in one day, but don't expect anyone to guide you. One is given written directions when to get back to the bus when boarding, but that is about it. The bus driver drove us to the Chateaux without a word. There was some confusion where to pick up our audios,etc., but with a little common sense it wasn't difficult.
I suggest bringing a snack and eating it between the drive to the second Chateaus as one won't have time to eat if you want to see everything that's in these Chateaux. You will have to decide what is more important to you - eating or viewing everything ...
This is a full day trip, from 9:00 until after 5:00, and do get there early as there are a number of day trips starting at the same place !
Both chateaus were very interesting. Jean Louis was an excellent guide, keeping us informed about times and locations to meet. It made our trip very manageable.
The facilities at both places were great. I highly recommend these tours.
Vaux le Vicomte is fascinating -- its history, its construction, garden surprises. The audio tour is excellent -- pictures on the handheld display help verify you're in the right room! The bus was on time and comfortable.
My wife and I were very pleased with the service. It was an amazing experience, it may not the most economical way to visit two beatiful chateaux in one day it was well worth money experience. Transportation was comfortable, on-time and service was very proffessional. I would highly recommend this tour again.

Very nice drive through the countryside and very informative about the history behind the buildings and the people involved. A very pleasant excursion. I definitely recommend this trip.
Very pleasant short tour. Saves you time as it is not straightforward to reach Vaux Palace on your own.
The tour was exactly as advertised, very efficient and friendly service. Highly recommend Vaux le Vicomte - an under-advertised gem of a Chateau. Fontainebleau is bigger and more famous, but Vaux le Vicomte gives you a better idea of the elegant lifestyle.
i had studied the history of this two wonderful chateax in college, so it was especially meaningful to actually have the opportunity to visit them!
Highly satisfactory. By far the most convenient and efficient means of visiting these two fabulous castles. The audioguides worked well.
This is amazing. Tour guide quite helpful. Bus has huge glass window so great views along the way. Had lunch at first shuttle. Very yummy. Spent a long time viewing each room. Highly recommended.
We didn't expect to have a guide on the bus with us, but she was wonderful! She gave us a brief tour of the city as we left and filled the traffic jam with jewels of knowledge for our group on the way home. YES! We will certainly use you in future European visits!
