Overview

Fly over Paris on a daytime helicopter tour to Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte, where you'll be treated to a Champagne and macaron reception. On your 35-minute flight, gaze out at the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral before flying toward the French countryside and landing at the stunning 17th-century castle. Sip Champagne and nibble on tasty macarons — the quintessential French confection —admire a 360° view around the estate from the dome which is 25 meters high, and explore the castle and gardens at your leisure. Travel back to Paris in a luxury limousine, or upgrade to enjoy a round-trip helicopter flight.

Your helicopter tour departs from Héliport d'Issy-Les-Moulineaux in southwest Paris in the morning. Aboard a state-of-the-art helicopter, take to the skies over Paris on a 35-minute flight, admiring aerial views of the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral and the nearby Palace of Versailles before heading to the Château.

Touch down at Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte in Maincy, about 37 miles (60 km) southeast of Paris. Soak up views of the beautiful 17th-century château and gardens, and step inside to enjoy a welcome reception. Enjoy the sumptuous surroundings as you sip Champagne and savor macarons. This light, tasty treat — comprised of two flavored meringue biscuits with a ganache, buttercream or jam filling — is one of the most popular pastries in France.

Grab your audio guide for an informative self-guided tour of the château, filled with original furnishings, lavish gilded walls, impressive stone statues and tapestries. One of the most beautiful, stately and significant French castles, Vaux-le-Vicomte was the inspiration behind Versailles and is a testament to the architectural prowess of Nicolas Fouquet, Superintendent of Finances of notorious King Louis XIV. Climb to the top of the dome and admire a 360° view around the estate from the dome which is 25 meters high.

Wander the beautifully manicured gardens at your leisure, or hop in a golf cart and ride around the grounds in style! Perhaps visit the château’s restaurant to enjoy more snacks or refreshments (own expense).

At the end of your visit, hop in a luxury limousine and relax on the drive to your Paris hotel, or upgrade to enjoy a round-trip helicopter flight. Re-board the helicopter, lift off and soar back to Paris at golden hour. Have your camera ready for these views! Land at Héliport d'Issy-Les-Moulineaux to conclude your tour.
