Everything was great except for the toilets! Squat toilets and no toilet paper after such an elegant evening caused dismay and hilarity. Mostly dismay.
This is a must before you visit the versailles, Dinner was romantic , the tour very informative and firework was amazing, highly recommended
I did not realize that all those lights shown in the photo are for lighted candles. A magical experience and definately a must do. The meal was just OK but the fire work display was great. You ate dinner in an area
separate from Chateau. Then you walked to the Chateau for a tour. The fire works were in the back side of chateau over the gardens. The second floor was closed but it did not matter. First floor the most spectacular. There might have been over 1000 light candles.
Perfect night. Food was great and candles and fireworks made it really special. Guide was just there to manage things and tours were on your own. And taking the van rather than a bus made a really civilized evening out of it!
excellent guide, lovely dinner outside on a warm evening, it was a bit of a long wait for the fireworks, but worth the wait, highly recommended
Excellent tour and related service. Well worth the cost.
The Palace and grounds were beautiful.
Our driver/tour guide picked us up on time at our hotel and was attentive and informative the entire trip.
My wife fell ill during the tour and the driver made a special effort to ensure she and I were comfortable, etc.
We had the driver pick us up at our hotel highly recommended as you don't get back until after midnight. He was a dream---so kind, considerate. Our dinner at the palace was lovely we opted for a bottle of champagne at an additional nominal charge. It was wonderful touring the candle-lit castle with few guests, but the best: our own, private, fireworks show! It was spectacular!!! I can't write enough about this experience. It was one of the best things we've ever done, and I can't recommend it enough!
Excellent, well organized tour. Plenty of independent time as well as tasty meal, chateau audio tour, candlelit walks and fireworks.
Such a special night for us!!! The grounds and the chateau are absolutely stunning!! We enjoyed the dinner. The staff at the dining room were very helpful and friendly and gave very good service. The night of our visit the weather was very wet and breezy, so we were not able to really walk around the grounds as much as we would have liked to. When we first saw all the candlelight throughout the gardens and the chateau it was rather breathtaking!!! The palace tour was very informative and helped us to appreciate the history of the building and the people that lived there. All very interesting!!! The fireworks were wonderful, a great way to end the evening. Our tour guide was great and seemed as excited as we were to spend the evening at the Vaux-le-Vicomte. We did appreciate the dropoff at our hotel at such a late time at night. I would highly recommend that others should enjoy this magical night!!!!
A perfect evening! Helpful driver/guide to a magnificent spot. The fireworks over the beautiful landscape with full moon in cloudless sky capped off the night.
Very special tour. The evening was magical! I highly recommend for adults. I went with my aunt which was very nice but I think it's also a perfect tour for honeymooners.
This was just a Beautiful all round experience, we will never foget this evening, great food, great Palace, finished off with beautiful fireworks in the garden, the perfect date night.
Once in a lifetime not to be missied experience. The 2000 candles are something you can't see anywhere else and they had fireworks before we left which were grand. There were two couples in the van with us one of whom flew in from NYC for a long weekend just to come to this ..can't wait to go back better then the inside of Versailles we both thoight
Really pleasant and relaxing tour, good meal and beautiful fireworks show afterwards.
Magical evening, pick up was on time and dinner was good quality. Plenty of time to explore the house and garden which were both stunning. Would recommend warm clothing as it became very cold by the end of the evening.
Picked up nicely at hotel in van with only 6 other people, taken directly to site, nice three course dinner with of course wine, then taken to tour of Palace, bypassed long lines and entered nicely and spent enjoyable time in the castle instead of waiting in long lines outside. Should make note not handicapped accessible, but the steps were not enough to stop my wife. At the end after the fireworks, taken back to the hotel. Nice.

The tour was to celebrate a pre 'Mother's Day' dinner for my mother. She absolutely loved the dinner, Vaux le Vicomte palace its history and in particular, the fireworks.

This tour is a must see. This was a very good evening. Seeing Vaux-le-Vicomte and the gardens in candlelight was a delight.
The Chateau was amazing with all the candles and the show. Only reason I am giving a 4 instead of 5 was the extremely slow service at the restaurant. We were seated with 2 other groups from our tour and had the same waitress. They were waited on extremely well and staff was attentive. We missed our tour of the chateau as we were seated for dinner at 7:40 and did not receive our dessert until 9:45 which we had to continue to ask for. The others in our group were completed and done by the assigned time to meet the guide at 9:15. It was as if we were totally forgotten about. Due to this we missed the tour of the chateau. So basically all we saw were the grounds and restaurant. A bit disappointing.
Wish we had more free time in the gardens, but overall a wonderful experience.
