Very good tour in a fairly comfortable vehicle. There was even a restroom on board the bus. The guide was excellent and both sites were fantastic with audio as you moved through the sites.
Both of these chateaux are marvelous. Our French friends recommended them instead of some of the more frequently mentioned destinations and they were right. They are beautifully maintained and furnished, and not at all crowded. We could have used more time, especially at Fontainebleau, as there is so much history in every room!

An excellent tour, as this places the construction of Versailles into perspective. The tour guides were multi lingual and gave all of us on the bus an insight into the areas we were travelling through. there was plenty of opportunity for free time and the audio guides were sufficient for an understanding of the history and the people who had such a significant impact on French history. Having previously been to Versailles, I would rate these excursions as more appealing and significant.
Lovely, although the food options at the Vaux le Vicomte were very high and with no other options, seemed unfair.
Our guide was very good and helpful. Both chateaux were extremely interesting. Food was good at Vaux le Vicomte and fairly reasonable. I enjoyed all the thought that went into Vaux le Vicomte.
This is a great tour! Comparable to Versailles without the crowds.
Well worth the trip. A good value for tickets, audio tour and transportation.
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!
