Aprenda a fascinante história por trás de cada castelo e explore em seu próprio ritmo com um guia de áudio incluído.
Such a satisfying day trip with a marvelous and engaging tour guide, Being able to tour the kitchens at Vaux-Le-Vicomte was a treat as I am a retired chef. You often get to see the dining rooms, serving porcelain and silver, but not so much the kitchens. Fontainebleau was fascinating with it's long history and various additions. The art, furnishings, and porcelain were exquisite. We were especially awed by the size and number of centuries it covered
The Chateaus were stunning inside and out! My 3 favorite things about this tour were
1. The fact that these Chateaus are NOT overrun with tourists like in Versailles and the Louvre. It was great to be able to explore them and not be overwhelmed by a million other tourists around me.
2. The fact that this was a small group tour. I would have hated to be on any of the bus tours that have like 60 people in them! Our group was 8 people big and that is the max for this company.
3. The guide JB who shared tons of fun facts and stories that made it easy to absorb the several hundreds of years of amazing history that each chateau has.
So, if you want to take a fun small group tour of some beautiful chateaus look no further! This is the one to take!!!
This was a great tour. Everything was exactly as advertised. The guide was funny and interesting and the small group really made it worth the price. The gardens at the first castles were beautiful and the interior decorations at the second one blew my mind.
Highly recommend to anyone who wants to get outside of Paris for a short day trip and see two great castles!
This was a fantastic tour! I really wanted to see some of the beautiful French Chateaux but the Loire Valley tours were just too much for me as I am not much on driving long distances. Vaux le Vicomte Chateau and Fountainbleau were less than an hours drive from Paris so I decided to visit them. I was also very happy to discover that the company that runs this tour has really comfortable vans with good AC a must in this crazy heat wave!
My guide was Antoine and I was very impressed by his knowledge and friendliness. The tour group was very small with only 6 people in it. I was so glad I booked this tour rather than one a huge group that travelled in buses. I saw that the bus tour groups took 30 minutes just getting everyone in and out of the restrooms. What a waste of time to join such a big group tour. It looked like their guide was herding cats. lol
Since we were in a small group there was no wasted time or rushing through the beauty around us. Antoine took the time to speak individually with each of us and make sure we were all seeing and learning about things that we were interested in. A perfectly wonderful experience and I thank the company for planning it out so well and for Antoine for being a great guide.
