Outstanding guide

A very convenient way to see Fontainebleau. My only recommendation would be make the tour and hour longer. We had to move at a pretty brisk pace to get through the Chateau. Would have been nice to have a little time to explore the grounds afterwards. The tour guide was outstanding.

A wonderful time; only wish we'd had more time to see the gardens.

Our driver and guide, Pedro, spoke several languages fluently and knew so much of the history of the area. We were surprised and delighted at the quality of the service and in the end, his sense of humor at our insistence on dragging our feet leaving Barbizon. I would only change our visit from 1/2 to a full day. Thank you for a great time.

Great guide, nice van, he made sure we had everything we needed to begin our audio-guided tour. He was right there waiting at the time he asked us to return.
