If you're tired of the hustle and bustle of Paris tourist with endless lines and big crowds, this excursion is a very worthwhile escape. Vaux le Vicomte is a stunningly beautiful private chateau, off the beaten track. There might have been less than 40 people when we were there, so when touring all the various lavishly furnished rooms, I was in there all alone. There might have been a dozen people in the gardens.. Fontainebleau is a busier place, but not overwhelming. It's a beautiful palace to visit, and the nearby town offers some excellent food at suburban prices, i.e. much cheaper than central Paris restaurants. I highly recommend this tour.
Excellent trip and enough time to see each site!
The time allowed at each location was enough to enjoy all the aspects of the chateaux's.
This tour allowed me to see two very different style chateaus. Found the history of these two very interesting. The guide was very knowledgeable and filled us in on information before arriving at each location. Prompt and on time, followed schedule perfectly. I would recommend taking a tour out of Paris proper with this company. Conveniently located near the Louvre and Tuilliers.

Interesting history and beautiful gardens.
Great trip! Both are very beautiful! Would definitely recommend this trip.
Rent the golf cart, it was a blast!
Excellent way to see the castles
Just a bus ride. Perfect.
Very good and easy. This is exactly what I want, basically includes transportation, tickets and audio guide, then you are on your own. The timing is pretty good too. Recommended!
