Guided tours and transportation.

Also highly requested, this three locations at the outskirts of Paris are in my opinion the most appealing. Less crowded, fun drive, impressive collection, a good option versus Versailles.
The tour starts at your hotel at 9, where we will start driving to Fontainebleau, around 50 km away from Paris. The visit of the palace would start around 10 h 30, ending around 12h 30. From Fontainebleau we will head to Barbizon to have Lunch (several choices in a really interesting environment), where I will show you this village with a high artistic value.
From there we will drive to Vaux le Vicompte. Around 40 minutes later we will park nearby the castle and we will visit this 17th century peculiar construction. If you plan to do this tour on a saturday during summer, let me know, I might arrange a candlelight visit during the night followed by fireworks in the gardens. This will change the schedule, picking you up later, but trust me, it worths the visit.

A Recent Review of this tour

Gustavo was just perfect. He was attentive to what we wanted to do for our tour. He asked us many questions and when we asked for his advice and recommendations, he was quick to answer with perfect suggestions for us. Our tour to Fontainebleau was the best "road less travelled". Gustavo shared with us tons of details and history in a very "non-touristy" environment. The same was to be said of Vaux-le-Vicomte. The day was leisurely, not crowded, easily accessible - we loved it! Thank you Thank you!
