Outstanding, the guide was brilliant, the Palace amazing, well organised on time loved the day.
Very good organised!
Excellent. Been to Versailles several times when fountains not on. This was a first and the fireworks added an unexpected dimension.
This was an incredible tour. The tour giude was extremely knowledgable and informative. A must see!
Amazing. Versailles like you have never seen it before.
Was a wonderful Experience. The guides very good. My only complaint was directions for the pickup. They gave an address with no business name and pickup time was in the dark. The van did not have a Viator sign as stated. When you have spent a lot of money and you.are not familiar with the area and are afraid you may not be in the right spot-that is not a good feeling. It worked out ok, but more specifics on the pickup spot would have prevented a lot of worries.
Wonderful day at Versailles! Especially liked the behind-the-scenes aspect and the smallness of the tour. Great guide!

This was the highlight of the trip! Our guide was wonderful, engaging and informative. She really brought the palace to life. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in seeing Versailles. It was spendy but worth it. We actually got in before the general public. I have photos of the Hall of Mirrors with only 2 people in it. 30 minutes later you couldn't see anything but people. We saw wonderful things. Go on this tour!
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The line skipping and access to the private chambers made the outing seamless. Also it was a beautiful day outside and we still had time to explore the gardens. Our guide on the bus en route to Versailles was very informative and the tour guide in the palace had a true love of his subjects and all things Versailles.
Giverny was one of my favorite places to visit. Lunch was exceptional. Guide was excellent. Would highly recommend this tour
Great tour guide, nice bus. Overall great tour. The two guides, one english, the other Italian was not clearly defined at first and lead to a bit of confusion. Once that was sorted out everything was great.
Versailles Guided Tour with Optional Fountain Show.
I booked this tour because of the fountain show and it did not disappoint. I was lucky to book whilst the fountain show was operating because it does not operate all year round. I would recommend you check the dates before booking because not all tours offer this option.
I left Paris on a clean double decker bus with three tour guides for three different languages. How great is that! We were all fitted out with our radios for our language and we had a really nice tour guide, sorry I forget her name, but she was really patient and knowledgable.
We arrived at Versailles and waited while people went to the toilet, beware there is only one toilet facility within the palace area so we were given the option of using one in a cafe outside. We waited over 15 minutes for people to return to the group. Versailles definitely need more toilet facilities.
We headed straight to the gardens and fountains. Wow! These gardens are huge and I'm sure I saw more with this tour than if I went on my own. The fountains and music did not disappoint so it was well worth going on a Sunday to see them.
After walking around the gardens for well over one hour we headed inside. This is where things changed, perhaps because it was a Sunday, but it was really hot inside and it was so crowded, it was hard to get a really good look at things.
Overall, the whole tour was well worth it and I would recommend it, but make sure you have a bathroom stop before boarding the bus.
the tour guide was good and she shared a lot of interesting trivia.
I was actually really disappointed with this tour. I chose to spend the extra money on a small group tour thinking it would be more personable and I would get a lot more out of the experience having to share the tour guide with less people however I found this tour was all free time and a lot less guided tour... The drive out to Giverny our tour guide was full of information however once we arrived in the town we given our tickets explored Monets house, gardens and then the country town and museum on our own I found this extremely disappointing... The Lunch was beautiful food was really nice and the little restaurant was quaint a great way to get to know the other people on the tour. We arrived at Versailles and had 50 minutes more of free time to explore the gardens and then met our tour guide to walk through the palace. This was my favourite part of the tour because I was provided lots of information as I walked through the building. Overall I loved the tour and the things I was able to see however if given the choice again I won't pay the extra money for a small group tour... I was extremely disappointed with this tour experience overall.
The palace is beautiful but a half day is not enough to see the whole place. All the rooms are rammed full of people. The hall of mirrors is stunning. But again so overcrowded. Couldn and #39;t wait to get out. Wouldn and #39;t recommend if with young kids. Our guide although lovely was hard to understand.
I was disappointed in this tour, too much time in Monet's Garden Giverny and not enough time in Versailles. We didn't have enough time in the Gardens at Versailles, all we could do was stand at the top and look around, 25mins was not enough. I booked a small group tour so that we would get a small group but at Versailles other people were added onto the group. We didn't get to see the water fountains dance to music like the description said, we left before they started. It would have been nice to see a bit more of Versailles, like the farm where Maire Antoinette used to go to, and a drive through the town. We were back at our hotel before 6.00pm.
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Excellent tour guide. Highly recommend seeing the gardens. A fantastic day.
Truly awesome experience. Great guide. Glad I did the whole day and and in such a small group.
This tour was amazing! Our tour leader Celia was very helpful and gave us interesting commentary on sites on the way to and from Versailles. Our Versailles tour guide was very knowledgable and provided excellent context to the rooms and artifacts we saw. Being able to by pass the enormous line outside and to view the private rooms in a small group was an experience we will treasure. This is the way to visit Versailles! My only suggestion would be to provide more detailed directions to exit the palace as it was very confusing for us.
Very well organised with a driver who gave us full background and history on the way to Versailles. We waited a very short time before entering the palace when we left the queue was enormous! All very well ordered and everything ran to time. A great time!!
