Excellent tour - very well organised. I highly recommend this tour as a way to see the estate. One of the highlights of our trip to Paris. Loved the flexibility at the end of the tour to spend the evening in Versailles and catch a later train back.
we had a great time, the weather was sleeting and bitterly cold, but it did not stop us and the guide was brilliant, very patient as we are in our sixtys and my wife hadn't ridden a bike until we decided to do this tour 4 month ago. I would recommend this tour to all it is worth it. Everything was great
Very enjoyable and learned a lot about the Netherlands
Phenomenal! Wonderful tour guides.
Great informative tour, definitely the way to see Berlin
We were pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to find your office in Versailles and by our tour guide Aurora. Skip the line was right! There were long lines at the palace gates but we walked straight in. Aurora was friendly and very informative about both the gardens and the palace, and despite the crowds inside the palace, she managed to communicate with our tour group and keep us together fairly well. We would not have gotten even half as much out of seeing the palace, without also doing the guided tour.
This tour was excellent. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and clearly explained meeting points. An ear piece was provided which was very helpful. The time of the day for the tour was spot on as towards the end it became very crowded. It was May 2013 when we took tour early morning. Well worth mone free time was adequate.
Such a fun trip. loved the picnic by the lake and the bike trip even more than going inside Versailles.
Great trip. The garden at Giverny was spectacular, lunch was excellent, Versailles was overcrowded but worth the visit. As there were around 20 people on this trip the group was split into two, with two guides. Everyone could hear what they were saying and they were most informative. The set lunch at the picturesque 17th century watermill at Fourges(which was hardly mentioned in the itinerary) was a definite bonus. If we return to France, I'd do the same trip again - it was good value for money.
We enjoyed the first part of this tour - Monet's home and gardens in Giverny were wonderful to see. Unfortunately, Versailles was so crowded it was not enjoyable (awful in fact). This was not the fault of the tour operator of course (the palace had been closed the day before and the following day was a public holiday so would be closed again). The lunch was okay.
Bad start as joining instructions were incorrect (or not clear) and do need to be altered.
That said the guide was superb and extremely knowledgeable and explained it perfectly.
We had travelled over from UK for a two day trip just to see Versailles and would highly recommend your service.
That said the guide rather suddenly left us around mid day when there were other rooms and buildings to see (which we did ourselves) so I do feel it is very misleading to describe the trip as "full day".

Doing what: Skip the Line: Versailles Half-Day Tour
Was very good. Tour Guide was very knowledgable and young and kept the tour moving. It was the perfect amount of time. The train to get to Versailles was very easy.
Our tour of Versailles was amazing. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. She was very enthusiastic and high energy. Her English was excellent. She was able to tell us all about what we were seeing and was able to answer any questions we had. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone going to Versailles.
Ladies this is the way to get your man to Versailles! The description is spot on you will see so much more of the grounds than if you just tour the palace. The market is am extra bonus for some true French living. We truly enjoyed our guide as well.
For a couple who haven't ridden bikes in a while, my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our bike tour around the Palace of Versailles with guide, Nick. He was friendly, welcoming, very funny and well versed on French history - if he didn't know something, he found out.
Loved shopping at the markets for lunch provisions, then picnicking at a spot over looking the palace itself. Our guide had a basket to store the goodies if you didn't pack a bag big enough for lunch.
The bike ride itself wasn't too strenuous but there were a few spots where we felt out of breath; however in saying that, you travelled at your own pace and if there were any concerns, Nick was there to support you. We were lucky that the weather was sunny but still very cold, particularly in the shade - so dress warmly with gloves especially.
We loved the gardens (although there was some post-Winter construction going on at the time of out visit) and preferred them to battling the crowds in the palace. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.
