Thouroughly enjoyable, well paced, and time for an enjoyable lunch at Vaux le Vicomte. Sadly, Fountainebleau is now filled with masses of furnishings of the period, and not as interesting as when we saw it some years ago.

Well worth seeing, gives you an insight to the past, and how royalty lived.

A great day out exploring 2 amazing historical palaces. Having an experienced driver makes it easy to just focus on sightseeing and have a relaxing day.

what a beautiful place, felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. The only bummer was that the fountains where not on during our visit so we had to use our imagination

Wonderful day. Such beautiful estates.
Limited time to expore the grounds so if an electric buggy/golf cart is available, make use of it as the grounds are extensive and you may not have the time to walk around.

Fabulous day out - definitely need the whole day to get around the place. The bus left on time and was punctual picking us up again. Perfect time of the year to go (Sept 2014) as there weren't too many tourists and could have a really good look at everything.

Very well organised. Couldn't have done it without the tour. Fontainebleau was fabulous and Vaux le Viscomte was a wonderful surprise. Just what we needed: transport and guidance. Great tour.

One of the most memorable day on our trip and would well recommend it to anyone. You visit two beautiful Chateaux, have enough time to see everything, can enjoy a good lunch, have nice gifts shops and relax on the bus. It will be part of cherished memories

Great tour, we enjoyed Vaux le Vicomte a lot more than Fontainebleau only because we were already tired but both places were beautiful. We also enjoyed exploring on our own with the audio guide instead of being tide to a tour guide. The bus ride wasn't that long but make sure to bring comfortable shoes because you will be doing lots of walking!!!.

We had a wonderful day with this tour. Everything went beautifully thanks to the great organisation by Viator and its subsidiaries.

This was a very relaxing way to see Fontainebleau and Vaux le Vicomte. I had never heard of Vaux before but I liked it better than Fontainebleau. There was a wonderful cafe at Vaux.

Visiting Chateaux de Fontainebleau and Vaux le Vicomte was a wonderful trip. I have been using Viator in France for the past three summers and each time I book about three to four trips with them. Always very professional and they pick the best places in and around the Paris area. The tour guides know what they are doing and try to make it very pleasant for all the passengers. The coach bus is very comfortable and it is great at the end of the day to get back on a nice air conditioned bus, let the driver take the wheel and enjoy the trip back into Paris.

The self guided tour of 2 Castles was amazing - audio guides were provided in both places (included in price of package). The info of the audio guides provide a lot details related to the Vicomte castle. Be sure to visit the Dome at the Vaux Le Vicomte which is only 3 Euros per person - the view is amazing and also eat at L'ecureuil restaurant which opens at 12 - food is delicious and affordable. as for Fontainebleu - the audio guide provided a lot of information and was interesting too. The only thing we didn't like is the person from the tour company who provided us the tickets/schedule on the bus before the departure - she was unfriendly and didn't explain much.

Great tour! Although it would have been nice to hear a little history or information during the ride to the chateaux's, it was still great. You aren't forced to stand in a group and do what the tour entails but are allowed to explore the chateaux's and grounds on your own with your audio guide. I loved this as sometimes there are things I would like to linger on and somethings I can skip quicker through. All you have to do is get back to the bus at the required time. All in all five stars.
