This was a great tour. It was well handled and full of beautiful sights. The two chateaux were lovely, especially Fountainbleau. There was plenty of time to enjoy the grounds, grab a bite, and walk the gardens. I thoroughly enjoyed the day. The price was very good for a full day of enjoyment.
Great tour!!! Very informative visit to 2 fabulous chateaux!!!
Excellent guides added to experience!!! Near to Paris and shouldn't be missed!!!
This is a wonderful tour you have 3 hours at each place to enjoy the tour, you get audio guides. The grounds at Vaux le Vicomte are fantastic but they are huge you can enjoy them better if you rent the clubcar and drive around rather than walk. The grounds at Fontainebleau are also large the little train is also nice
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.
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.
Great trip! Both are very beautiful! Would definitely recommend this trip.
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!
Wonderful trip especially like Vaux le Vicomte. Strongly recommend this tour.
The trip was as advertised. The bus was on time and an efficient way to see both sites in one day. Both sites were tours on your own with audio-guides which as perfect. You could proceed or skip areas at your discretion.
Both chateaux were quite beautiful and the guide was very informative. The tour is pretty much all-day, which I expected. But was worth it.
I really enjoyed the two locations as they both had something interesting to offer. It was good to have the audioguides to help learn about the buildings and former occupants. The charter bus was in perfect condition.
