Excellent Customer Service/Fantastic Refund Policy
May 2020
We were planning to travel to Paris in late Sept. 2020 and had to cancel due to the COVID situation. I researched the various excursions that Blue Fox offers and they were very helpful in answering questions. I had heard so many good things about their tours and I had booked three day trips with them. We were looking forward to these tours, especially the bike tour at the Palace of Versailles. Although we are disappointed that we had to cancel, we will definitely book with Blue Fox again when we are able to reschedule our trip. They provided a refund right away after notified them of our change in plans. Very reputable and responsive.

Customer Service & Peace of Mind
As many others have mentioned, we had to cancel our planned trip. I emailed Blue Fox asking for a refund, which was immediately and graciously granted in full. In fact, communications from Blue Fox Travel have been consistent and clear throughout the process. I booked the tour in January, and have received several emails confirming the details of the trip, which I appreciated. We will return to France and we will certainly book our tour with Blue Fox Travel.

Efficiency of cancellation
May 2020
Although we were saddened to not be able to travel this summer for this bike tour, we were very impressed with the speed and flexibility Blue Fox Travel has shown regarding our cancellation and refund. In less than two business days our refund was made along with a letter wishing us to book in the future. As these are difficult times, we appreciated the personal response and will definitely rebook this trip for next summer.

Great Customer service
May 2020 • Couples
My husband and I had been planning our trip to Paris amd France since the end of 2019, but unfortunately, due to Covid-19 ☹️, we had to cancel our plans....

After reading about the different kinds of tours offered at Versailles, we decided to choose a bike tour because the idea of covering all of that area on foot, seemed very daunting and exhausting. Of the different bike tour companies operating in Versailles, we decided on Blue Fox because their tour sounded the most appealing to us.

Circumstances being what they are, we can’t give our opinion on the tour itself, because we haven’t had the pleasure of going, at least, not yet...

The tour company confirmed our reservation via email, almost immediately after we booked online. The staff were very good about informing us about changes they made to the itinerary, way ahead of time- eg they wanted to leave 30 minutes earlier than advertised to give everyone more time to visit. The staff were also very quick with replying to our email requesting a cancellation of the trip, and promptly refunded our money within 1 to 3 days of us writing the cancellation email.

All in all, we’ve had a great experience with Blue Fox Travel’s customer service and will definitely book with them, the next time we travel to Paris/ France.

Unfortunately, we had to cancel our trip due to Corona virus but we look forward to rebooking next year. I asked for a refund and I got a prompt response with a full refund. (different than other things I booked in France) Thanks to Blue Fox and I will book with you again!

So good to work with
Jun 2019
When we were booking this tour, I worked with Blue Fox to do a customized tour. They were super easy to work with and friendly. Sadly, before we could arrive, we had to cancel because of COVID. They cancelled our trip without question and were so nice. I know that it's hard for them because their whole business is gone-- but they couldn't have been better even in this hard time.

We will definitely rebook with you when we can finally make it over to Paris. We've heard great things and now are positive that we will have a fantastic experience with you.

Stay well!

Perfect Customer Service

Sadly, we were unable to follow through with our plans to go on this tour due to COVID19. When we contacted the company they were kind, gracious and understanding. We were offered a refund which they followed through with immediately. They were incredible! We have this tour bookmarked for when we rebook our trip next year. Can't wait to experience all this company has to offer.

Great day with Blue Fox
Mar 2020
My husband, two sons, and I had a fabulous time visiting Versailles on the Bike Tour. We especially loved the portion dedicated to Marie Antoinette's "hamlet" - an area we probably would not have even known about otherwise. Our tour guide was friendly and informative with a great sense of humor. It was a long day, but our 10 and 12 year old made it through fine. It helped that it was not at all crowded; I can imagine with crowds the day would be a bit longer and possibly a lot of small kids to handle. Two thumbs up!

Great way to see all of Versailles!
Mar 2020
Pablo was fantastic and this was our best trip of several we have had to Versailles. Seeing more of the town of Versailles as well as the larger scale of the palace property and other "smaller palaces" was a true treat. I great way to spend the day on a trip to Paris. We will definitely repeat this on the next trip!
