Enjoyed this tour very much. We were picked up right on time and our driver gave us a wonderful history of the Fontainebleau chateau and French history. He also tied into art movements and explained to us about the painters who first painted open air in the forests surrounding the chateau. It probably would have been nicer if we went in the spring or summer when everything on the grounds would be alive and in bloom, but that was our choice to visit in January. I would not hesitate to book with Viator again.

We love going to this chateau. We were lucky that the tour was only for us. Our guide was very informative and this tour is not a full guide but once you are at the chateau, we have the radio set that will give you the history in each room. This is a beautiful chateau and we highly recommend it.

This was an amazing Castle, the history of it was incredible and the driver was so informative about the castle and the area. My daughter and I both found the inside of this Castle to be more beautiful than Versailles.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

We nearly didn't make this tour but the company operators made sure we did, many thanks to them. Fontainebleau is staggering on your senses, the Chateau rooms are more overwhelming than any others I have seen. There was so much to see inside that we didn't get a chance to see the gardens. I would do this tour again.

The tour was an exceptional experience. I enjoyed discovering Fontainebleau at my own pace -- that's my favorite kind of tour. Our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable. Since I'm in second language acquisition, I compliment our tour guide for not only is correct, clear, fluent English but also his mastery of idiom and American culture.
