Enjoyed the tour and guide which made it interesting and a very nice day overall. These two chateaux attract less crowds making them more accessible and able to experience all their grandeur.
Vaux-le-Vicomte has a nice cafe in the garden to eat at. Save time for the gardens and pay to climb to the dome. Better than Versailles no -crowds!
This was a great tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke perfect English -- well worth whatever extra money it is. I loved Vaux le Vicomte -- if you're interested in Louis XIV era, this is the place to go. Versailles was re-decorated after his death and then
This is the best Viator excursion we have taken. Both locations are beautiful but we actually preferred Vaux le Vicomte; beautiful setting and not too many people. This trip provides ample time to explore and see each location. I highly recommend this excursion. And it was a comfortable bus and great driver.

Although it is a long day, the time moves quickly as there is so much of interest to see. Both locations were beautiful Jean-Louis our guide did a fantastic commentary enroute and also during our tours of the chateaus and grounds. We very much enjoyed our day. Fontainebleau had a power outage while we were there and no one could enter the chateau until it was restored. Jean-Louis did an good job of showing us the grounds until we were able to enter the chateau. Well done!
You need to go to this Tour! This was my 4th time in Paris and I have been to Versailles 3x, but first time in Fontainebleau and Vaux...IT IS ABSOLUTELY BETTER...if you want a quieter, less touristy site, but just as beautiful with amazing history...look no further than this tour and these two sites. GO HERE BEFORE IT GETS INVADED BY TOURISTS!
We went to a lot of Chateau's while in France, the Vaux le Vicomte was by far our favorite! The grounds and the interior of the building is beautiful. It's wasn't packed on the day we went and we got to really enjoy it. We just wish we had a little more time in that specific place. The grounds are really large and it takes a long time to walk through the building and the grounds. However, we still spent a nice amount of time there. We would recommend paying the additional 3 euros per person to go to the top! You pay when you start walking through the building. The view from the top was beautiful. We would recommend this tour.
Well organized, enjoyed the sights very much. It was mostly transport between the sights and then you do a tour with audioguide. Definitely worth it.
Taking the coach bus from Viator to Chateaux de Fontainebleau and Vaux le Vicomte Day trip from Paris was easy and a pleasure. Both palaces are worth visiting, and have lots of furniture to view. The audio guides are included in the tour, and are a great way to explore. We did not want to drive from Paris, and the coach bus was so convenient. Clean, air conditioned and on time were all highlights.
Visiting the two palaces was amazing. Be sure to pay the extra fee and go up to the roof top for the view at Vaux Le Vicomte, if you are able to manage stairs easily. We chose to visit these two palaces instead of Versaille. There were no crowds and the tour offers plenty of time to see both palaces.
Bring snacks, although there is some food available on site.
