    This is a wonderful tour and the Chateau is beautiful. The house is huge and the gardens are wonderful.. Our tour guide even showed us a little place to get a wonderful apple tartin after the tour was over! Your drive is about an hour out of Paris.

    The service that picked me up was excellent and the driver relayed so much history to us but the Chateau was so terribly disappointing with only a small area on level one of the right wing available to view. I expected that much of the total Chateau would be open for viewing.

    Our guide, Ricardo, was fantastic! He answered all our questions and added many interesting facts. I highly recommend this tour!

    Fredrick I think our tour guide was wonderful. So much knowledge. Turely amazing.

    The tour guide shares with me the history during our trip to the Chateau, get the admission ticket and the audio equipment ready for my visit. He is experienced and answered all my questions raised. Yet, the Chateau is quite large. If you are interested to know every displaced items, 4.5-hour tour is not sufficient because the travelling time to and from the Chateau have already taken almost 2.5 hours.

    Enjoyed this tour very much. We were picked up right on time and our driver gave us a wonderful history of the Fontainebleau chateau and French history. He also tied into art movements and explained to us about the painters who first painted open air in the forests surrounding the chateau. It probably would have been nicer if we went in the spring or summer when everything on the grounds would be alive and in bloom, but that was our choice to visit in January. I would not hesitate to book with Viator again.
