My family and toured with Best of France in the past and loved it so much that we had to come back. This time we did a day trip to Fontainebleau and Vaux le Vicomte with Frederic, which was absolutely wonderful. Fontainebleau was amazing and full of so much history. We also loved Vaux le Vicomte and the gardens (which were an inspiration for Versailles) were a highlight. Both places had the added bonus that they were not crowded which made the experience very enjoyable. Frederic really enhanced the trip because we learned so much from him--it was a wonderful day. If you are considering a private tour you absolutely must do it with Best of France!

Went to Fontainebleau with Frederic. He was on time, car was clean, he was a good driver and very knowledgeable. His English was very good and easy to understand. We learned a lot of history and he made it very enjoyable. He was very enthusiastic about the subject. Will definitely tour with him again. Favorite part was seeing the vast collection of Empire furniture.

My husband and I were on a short trip to Paris for his work. On the day he had mostly off, we had Frederic drive us to Bruges since we had never been to Belgium and the pictures looked amazing. After a very comfortable ride there, Frederic started a walking tour with us in the morning and we quickly realized the pictures did not do this quaint city justice! We felt like Disney had created this perfect little town for people to see. Frederic walked us around before we stopped for lunch together. He was going to leave us to dine alone but we asked him to join us because we enjoyed his company so much and we wanted to hear more about the city. After lunch, he gave us the option of having him continue to walk us around or we could explore on our own. We chose to explore on our own since we felt he had given us such a good overview that morning. We had plans to tour the Chocolate Museum but when we arrived, it was closed due to the time of year. We actually didn't mind much and we just spent the day wandering the beautiful streets around the canals and stopping for hot chocolate and waffles. I would highly suggest a visit to Bruges to feel like you have stepped back in time. Speaking of time, we toured in January and lucked out that it wasn't extremely cold. The crowds were very low so it was easy to wander the streets and sometimes we found ourselves the only ones exploring the small alleyways. I would definitely return to Bruges one day and would highly suggest taking this tour especially if it is your first visit or if you have very limited time in the city.

My husband had business in Paris all day so I booked Frederic to take me on a private champagne tour. I was a little nervous that I would have a good time by myself but within a few minutes of driving down the road, I was completely at ease and had made a new friend. Our first stop was Reims Cathedral where I learned about the coronation of France's Kings and the architecture and history behind the beautiful cathedral. From there, we headed to a large Champagne house where I joined a few others to tour the cellar and have a tasting. Frederic was waiting for me outside as we went to lunch together. Lunch was delicious and I felt very local to the region. We finished our day at a small house where I ended up with a private tour of the cellars and tasting experience because I was there in January and it was low tourist season. We returned to Paris that evening and I have been telling everyone about what I learned since I have returned to Kentucky. January is rather bleak and chilly but I would happily return again in the winter because it meant very low crowds which made the experience feel even more special.

We spent a wonderful day with Marion on this small group tour to Amboise and the surrounding area. She is so full of personality and knowledge. This tour was the only way we could have covered so much in a day. Lunch was delicious and the visit to the wine cave a great experience. Would thoroughly recommend this day tour from Tours.
