It was wonderful to see these places and they were so tranquil. I went on Saturday, and there were no queues, no rush or crush of people anywhere (except to get get on the bus in the morning). My photos of the day were, as a result, amazing. The audio guide for Vaux was very good, timed to my pace so I could take as little or long in any room I wanted, with clean comfortable headphones. Our bus was hot, but was swapped out for us while we were in Fontainebleau so the remainder of the trip was deliciously cool with wifi onboard. All the staff - from the ticketing, to the guide and driver were easy going and helpful. It was the easiest most professional item on my itinerary during my entire stay in Paris: delivered on time and exactly as described. Thankyou so much.
My wife and I enjoyed this tour very much. Be sure to get the audio guide as it gives interesting details about the rooms. The only downside is that the Vaux-le-Vicomte audio guide needs to be updated. Some objects described have been removed from public viewing. Keep in mind that many areas of the chateaux are NOT handicapped accessible (no elevators to access upper floors & cobblestone walk ways make it difficult to maneuver wheelchairs).
Vaux-le-Vicomte was by far my favorite! When you book this trip make it a point if you’re physically able - spend the extra 3€ - go up the stairs to the dome. Fantastic View. Decent lunch$$ ! I wish we could’ve spent more time here. Fontainebleau had quite a bit of construction going on. 2 1/2 hrs was too long here - we spent a lot of time by the pond, sitting in the front garden and spending € in the gift shop. Good trip all in all.
Be aware of audioguide. Descriptions are very lengthy. Pace your tour of Fontainebleau castle (very beautiful and huge) according to the tour departure time so you will make it. We had very good and knowledgeable guide.
I had this trip on 16th of September. An excellent trip. Very good guide speaking fluent English. Enough time to see the palaces. Highly recommend the trip and the agency. Thank you for the pleasure!!!
