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.
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!
This was a wonderful tour! We had all day between the two chateaux but they were so beautiful we could have stayed even longer. The guide was helpful and there was a restaurant to eat lunch at that was quite good. The bus was comfortable and the ride was a lovely little voyage outside Paris. The Vaux le Vicomte was a wonderful surprise and so outstanding to see for the first time! I would highly recommend this all day independent tour with audio go at your own pace devices to anyone wanting to see something new and different from the Paris tourist attractions.
Enjoyed the flexibility to walk around on our own instead of being guided every step of the way. The tour guide was full of information on the bus ride out of and back into Paris, she also knew a lot about where we were going. Beautiful chateau's.
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.
