Fantastic, on time, great tour guide, great bus, no lines and access to many rooms that the general public did not have access to - I would highly recommend
This was an amazing tour and well worth the price. Everything from the pickup point to drop off was perfection. The bus driver was excellent and charming. The bus tour guide was so knowledgeable and interesting to listen to as we hung on to her every word. Upon arrival we knew we had done the right thing by booking this tour as the wait line looked impossible. When turned over to the Versailles docent we were once again very pleased. She was most knowledgeable and her English was quite good. The audio system was excellent in that we could hear her from any position we found ourselves. It was wonderful as she weaved us through the crowds into doorways for the most wonderful view of times gone by. This tour gave us a solid historic review and a better appreciation for France in her struggle as a nation. Thank you Viator for assisting us with this fantastic experience!

Well this was a great experience from start to finish. The two guides we had both in the bus and at the Palace were fantastic and their knowledge boundless and entertaining. "Boy" The four kings that lived there, Louis 13, Louis 14, Louis 15 and Louis 16 certainly new how to live. This was a jaw dropping experience and just has to be on your "Bucket List" if you are going to Paris
Excellent tour, the Palace and gardens are amazing. We got to see a lot more than if we tried to do this by ourselves. The guide was very knowledgeable and knew how to fit the most in to the limited time we had. Don't miss this attraction if you are in Paris
A great day out with a lovely lunch included
Best way to see this wonder!
The Guides were excellent - on the bus to and from and while at Versailles. The private tour was worth the extra cost as no lines. When you finish the private tour go directly to the fountains rather than back into the Palace for 30 minutes as you will see essentially the same thing but with many more people. The gardens are large so you will need all the time to see everything.
All was well organised except for the confusion at the start but only for a short while. Then it went ahead like clockwork and being able to go straight in was the very best part. I highly recommend this trip purely for that aspect as not having to queue is the greatest advantage
Doing what: Versailles Independent Day Trip from Paris
Full day with great leisurely lunch, wine included. Tour was in depth, and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and easy going. A true full tour, visiting 4 sites.
Fantastic and a great guide
The tour was great--did not see the Hall of Mirrors alone but the private apartments and lack of crowd and no waiting in line was terrific. Rented a gold cart to see the gardens and it was great. Steph our tour guide was
TERRIFIC--some of the group was not very polite and very demanding and she handles it very well. Her historic tale was perfect and she had local knowledge too. All in all very worth it--no hassle and saw a great site. Our Guide in Versailles--Ann Marie was also very knowledgeable and answered questions easily. She was good at getting the group through the crowded parts and moving along. Great tour.
The tour was enjoyable because of the beauty of the palace and grounds but also due to the courtesy of the bus driver and knowledgeable tour guide. It was very crowded but the guide managed to keep us together.
We LOVED this tour! The guide was amazing; so interesting and kind. She made our day and experience fantastic! Even more, she was so knowledgable and inspiring. We loved it all. Thank you!
This tour was amazing!
Knowing the castle and principal gardens its a good experience. The tour through the Trianons although a nice place to be, I would have prefer using that time to go to Giverny which is nearby to see the gardens that inspired Claude Monet's paintings.
