  • Take a full-day excursion from Paris by air-conditioned coach, and see how French kings and queens lived for centuries
  • Explore the royal and imperial château in the heart of the forest of Fontainebleau, and witness the dome of Vaux le Vicomte castle
  • Soak up the history with an audio guide tour of the châteaux and gardens and dress the family up in costume!

Leaving central Paris in the morning, you'll soon be on your way to the very château that inspired King Louis XIV to build Versailles. Enter the 17th-century Vaux le Vicomte and imagine the sleeping French nobles and the bustling cooks in action as your 3D-sound audio guide takes you around Nicolas Fouquet's staterooms and the château's giant kitchens and cellars.

Outside, explore acres and acres of sculpted bushes, glistening lakes, and bright flower beds in bloom – it's French romance at its finest. Take a picnic and eat on the grass, or opt for the Vaux le Vicomte restaurant.

After lunch, it's time to explore the only royal and imperial château that's been inhabited for seven centuries, Fontainebleau.

Explore the royal touches from medieval to renaissance and classical styles, and don't miss Napoleon I's throne and the famous horseshoe-shaped staircase. If you've opted to dress up in costume, this is the perfect moment for a selfie!

Terrible. Bus started 25 minutafter set TIMELINESS. Tour guide was awful she was chaotic unorganized. Gave out printed papers "our tickets " with no details. Several people said our tickets were incomplete we were missing tickets. She said we were all fine. Once at Fountaineblue 6 of our group couldn't gain access because we had NO PRINTED TICKETS. THEY WERE MISSING as we told the Tour guide at the start of the bus entry. After 10 minutes asking for help a woman working felt sorry for us and purchased 6 tickets. WHAT A STRESSFUL MESS. Also the bus was dirty old and tired with no toilet inside
