I loved this tour. The guide was friendly and excellent and because it was only a small group we did not have to put up with people being late back and waiting around for them as so often happens. The second part was wonderful going to visit the Trianons.
What can you say about the Palace of Versailles? We were there first thing in the morning, and the lines were already huge, and we were there at Christmas in the freezing cold. Thank god for skip the line! The opulence lived up to its reputation. The lunch was fantastic, I thoroughly enjoyed it from the wine to the surroundings, the visit to the Queens hamlet was also great, it is a shame that it is decaying so badly and not seeming to be rescued anytime in the future. It will be a huge historical loss if it goes. great tour and would highly recommend.
My guide was FANTASTIC. She was so personable and friendly. Her knowledge of the Palace, history and stories made the trip. I felt like I had known her forever. She had a good sense of humor and clearly enjoyed doing her job. It made the entire experience so much better than just having a tour guide. Versailles was crowded beyond belief but we maneuvered our way around and had a great tour. I would recommend doing this to anyone who asked.
Great guide, great tour. Everything worked very well. Food in resto ok, nothing special but environment even on a rainy day was excellent.
Everything went perfectly (including the weather!). Car in time, the 2 of us were joined by one other client who proved to be lovely company. Our driver/guide was great, he was extremely nice and informative without being obtrusive. Food in Versailles restaurant just about passable but you can't be blamed for that! Quite an expensive trip but very well worth it. Thanks.
We did the day trip to Versailles. It was great just a small group of 6 including ourselves. The tour guide Francis was very knowledgable and Versailles itself was unbelievable. The lunch supplied in the grounds at a restaurant was very good and as with all french wine amazing. We had a lovely time and would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to jump the queues and see the best of Versailles with a small group.
I had been to the Palace of Versailles before, not on a tour. This is the only way to go. Picked up our hotel by a knowable guide, ushered passed the long lines and guided through the Palace and into some areas that the general public does not see. Expensive, but worth it.
Our guide Vincent was really awesome. A great tour, gorgeous palace. Highly recommended.
I highly recommend this tour. Our guide was sensational and extremely knowledgable!!
A guided tour is the way to go. Our guide michelle was fabulous! She was so knowledgable and interesting. She even took a little extra time to show us some things that were not a part of Versailles. So glad we did this tour.
Worth every Euro! Very helpful informative guide, with a good knowledge of the subject.
I would highly recommend this tour. We avoided the long lines and it was extremely convenient having all the different tickets provided to us. We enjoyed the lunch very much and the small group size made for a more intimate experience. Our tour guide, Vincent, was knowledgeable and very nice. The hotel pickup was an added bonus. I wouldn't do Versailles any other way.
The tour guide, Isabelle was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions professionally. The tour was well worth the price.
