    The trip does match my expectations in contents and arrangements. The activity is recommended to those who may feel interest in Château de Fontainebleau & Vaux le Vicomte.

    Good and nice trip. One day trip can separate to two day tours
  • YA TING HSU 23 Jul 2018
    These two castles were great places to visit for outings from Paris. The only thing we felt quite upset was the tour was basically an English tour, however more than 80% of the group were French so the tour guide spoke French most of the time, which was unexpected.
  • WOEI WU 6 Jul 2018
    The chateus are beautiful. There is nothing particular to say about the trip arrangement because there is no actual tour guide (except the driver) but only recorded audio tours. Although this is ok but it is not what I would have expected.
  • WAI YIN 29 Jun 2018
