Tour was excellent. Directions to meet tour guide where wrong. Viator info said meet guide in front of Railroad station. Wrong. Needed to cross street and find tour operator office and meet guide inside there.
The guide and the skip the line feature make this a recommended way to see Versailles.
Great tour of Giverny and Versailles with a nice meal in between. I would only recommend to come later in the spring when the flowers are in full bloom for Monets Gardens
Great company to work with, great guides. I assure you, it's worth it to take this tour just to be able to skip the line. We went in the off-off season and the line was still huge! We would have been out there freezing for two hours. Instead, we got right in and our guide was a fierce advocate for getting our group where we needed to go.
The tour was exactly what we were looking for!
I had a marvelous stay in Paris (then a week in Provence) with my almost-12-year-old grandaughter. Versailles was on her wishlist, and even though we were a little late arriving in Versailles on the metro, we were immediately accommodated, and after a short wait at the gate, joined a small group with a fine guide through the castle.
Our tour guide knew everything about the history and artwork. She was awesome! 4 stars only because it was so crowded that it felt like we didn't have enough time at the end to explore the gardens on our own. Skip the line was a def plus! 1000 people in line! Evidently spring break for europe and Asia!
The tour company was well organised and handled the group well. Versailles is amazing, pity we had to go through it with through it so quickly. It was difficult to take photo's, just appreciate the detail and keep up with the guide simultaneously. Having the audio aid helped a lot.
Giverny was terrific and the lunch was wonderful. Versailes wasn't. there was something wrong with your reservations beause only people with families went in first, the rest of us had to wait well over an hour so one guide took us to the gardens until we could get inside the palace.The palace was so crowded we actually lost our guide for a while.
I can't imagine any reason why our reservations were not accepted when we got there. Other tours had no problem.
Needless to say it kind of ruined our day.
The tour was great but we were a group of 10, 5 adults and 5 children. The guide did not know how to talk to the children and engage them in the tour.
Despite leaving 20minutes late, there was plenty of time to see the Palace. However, as we were there only for the morning half day so didn't pay for the garden fountain show in the afternoon, there is a very, very restricted view of only one small garden. Do not choose this tour if you want to see the gardens (which, unfortunately, we did). The guide was very good and efficient to make up time from the late start.
The best thing about this tour was the lunch stop. It was in the country, next to a river and water wheel. The (included) food was actually quite good. The guide was not. He spoke Franglish, (which is worse than the Frenglish the second guide spoke). He talked softly and swallowed his words. He had no clue about projecting his voice, or even facing his audience at Giverny. He would drone out dates and names in a monotone. At Versailles he used a microphone so at least he was audible. The palace is a mob scene, and this wasn't even the height of the tourist season.
Great tour and guide

Doing what: Skip the Line: Versailles Full-Day Tour
Ended up being half day tour as snow from previous day closed access to gardens and Marie Antoinette's chambers. The tour handling informed us promptly and gave us a credit per person for the cancelled portion of the tour. The tour guide was very informative and kept asking if we had any questions
The guide was amazing -- it was a dynamic history lesson in a great location.
