About the ride

Take a half-day trip from Paris to the metropolitan area of the city - Fontainebleau. The place is known for beautiful forests and the Royal Palace of Fontainebleau which is compared to the Palace of Versailles.

On the day of the trip, the Welcome driver will pick you up from your accommodation in Paris and give the complete tour in an air-conditioned, spacious car. All Welcome vehicles are equipped with Wi-Fi, water and light snacks, to ensure you stay hydrated and comfortable during the tour. During your ride towards Fontainebleau, you will have a chance to stop at the places of your choice. Upon your request, it is possible to have a lunch or dinner at the local restaurant, recommended by the Welcome Driver.  At each stop, your friendly driver will answer all the questions you may have, share the local knowledge and more tips about each destination.


Your day will begin with a personal pickup by your English-speaking driver from your hotel or apartment in Paris.

First stop along the way can be the Château de Vaux le Vicomte. The biggest Chateau in France and one of the most magnificent ones. 

In 2 hours the Welcome Driver will take you to Fontainebleau, a beautiful commune in France located 55 km Southeast of Paris.

Since this experience is a personal tour, you are free to decide on the places of visit together with your driver. You have an opportunity to stop anywhere you like along the way to Fontainebleau and enjoy the best of France according to your needs.

When you reach Fontainebleau, we suggest visiting the iconic place in the commune - the Palace of Fontainebleau. It is one of the largest royal castles in France with more than 1500 luxury rooms and covering 230 acres of parkland. Palace of Fontainebleau is a hidden treasure of France which locals compare to the Palace of Versailles.

The Palace of Fontainebleau is surrounded by a beautiful forest where you can stroll with your friends or family. This mixed forest covers the area of 280 km and is a home for thousands of flora and fauna species.

Will there be an official tour guide?
