tour guide was amazing. Stephanie should write a book about French history. She was so entertaining. She was the best guide our family ever had. My teenage girls loved her also.
The best ever!!
The day of our tour of Versailles, it was POURING rain! Our tour went on regardless and our tour guide was a trooper. She gave those who chose to go indoors the option to do so, and walked on with the rest of us in rain, mud and all! Nevertheless a Great Tour.
A great way to spend an evening. Hotel pickup was on time and dropped us off at the dinner boat with enough time to walk around a bit and snap photos before boarding the boat. Dinner was nice while passing the beautiful sites along the Seine. Versailles show was amazing and highly recommended. 5 stars
Being able to skip the long lines in the high tourist season is most helpful.
Doing what: Versailles Independent Day Trip from Paris
This is the best carefree way to go! Just show up at the bus and have fun listening to the stories. The Guided Tours of Versailles are the way to get to see rooms where the public is not admitted and tips on times to see the music coordinated with fountains just like the royals did!
Pablo was an excellent and informative guide and we had a fabulous day.
The tour size was perfect and our guide/driver was excellent in all respects.
The pace of the tour was good, the quality of the lunch and the location of the restaurant was a pleasant surprise.
Detours through some lovely villages was an added bonus.
The extra expense of the small group tour was well worth it: we were the only people who booked for that day and so it was a private tour. We had plenty of time to get excellent information from our excellent guide, Pamela, and she indulged us by giving some of the tour en Français so our daughter could practice. Lunch was very picturesque and the "back road" from Giverny to Versailles allowed for a drive through sn area of troglodyte (cave) homes. Giverny and Versailles were very, VERY crowded. Skipping the unbelievably long line for tickets at Versailles was a priceless perk.
Steff, our guide, was also on top of everything and and an endless source of information. Vy well-organized and if you're going to Versailles the private tour is the ONLY way to go. Full marks once again!
Excellent tour and guide. Well worth it and you see a lot of extra rooms and the line of others is Soooo long.
Rent the golf cart through the gardens.
Can not say enough about STEPH, she had a lot of info and very knowledgable
AWESOME - AMAZING - UNFORGETTABLE ! just some of the words that attempt to describe this experience.
We really enjoyed this tour. We were picked up at our hotel on schedule. There were two other families on the tour so the van was full, but comfortable. Our driver/guide was knowledgeable and energetic and spoke excellent English. On the way to each attraction she gave background history about what we were going to see so we had some orientation. Being on the tour meant that we skipped the ticket line. This was especially good at Versailles since it was very crowded. On the way from Versailles to Giverny we stopped at a lovely restaurant housed in an old mill for lunch. The food was excellent. An added benefit of this tour is that you get to see some of the French countryside and tiny villages with their ancient churches. Monet's house and gardens were delightful. The garden was in full bloom with a staggering variety of flowers. The lily ponds appear just as Monet painted them. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour.
The tour guide was great, it was a small group of 8 which made it very pleasant. We were very lucky when at Versailles it was not very busy, it was very comfortable to walk around and enjoy the magnificent palace.What amazing place, a must see when you go to Paris. Go with a guide to learn all about the palace, try and stay as long as you can. Do not got Monday or Tuesday always busy, we went Thursday.
