I took four tours with you, this was the worst. The trip was late getting started, due to other guests. We drove through Barbizon without stopping to see anything, then on to Fontainebleau. The driver instructed us to be back at the normal time for departure. Since we got there late, the visit was short and we didn''t even get a chance to see the gardens. The driver should have allowed extra time.
