Our tour was offered as a small group and personal experience. It was certainly that since there was a cancellation and my husband and I were the only ones on our personal tour. Our tour guide, Nabila, was wonderful and brought the beauty and amazing history of the palace, the grounds, and most of all the royalty to life! She also guided us past the larger groups and gave us the most time to enjoy the palace. She had such energy and personality herself and our ride to and from the palace was filled with added descriptions of Paris and enjoyable conversation. We had a most wonderfully enjoyable and delicious lunch in a lovely restaurant. Nabila really brought the day and the tour full circle. When asked, she recommended a restaurant that provided a fun and authentic experience for our evening dinner. My only regret is that, in our goodbyes, that I overlooked giving her an additional gratuity for her personal attention to our enjoyable day. Would love to be able to contact her- or please let her know. Also, she really knows how to navigate those Paris streets and traffic!! We would highly recommend this full day experience, especially with the included lunch. Thank you!
The tour was wonderful. November was not as crowded as in the summer according to our guide so we were able to see everything without bumping into people. The guide was an art history major who loved what he was talking about and it showed. Lots of info and plenty of time for pictures. The lunch along the grand canal was perfect for taking a break and enjoying the gardens.
Fantastic day! This tour was great. We had a lovely lunch and explored Versailles in style. Versailles was very crowded and having the tour guide was imperative to us enjoying the atmosphere.
Fantastic day out. I met some lovely people on the tour and our guide Zara was amazing. Her knowledge of the city and the Palace was extensive and we received a detailed and entertaining description of what we were seeing. The palace and the gardens were incredible. Walking along Marie Antoinette's little palace and farm was also a treat. I recommend this to everyone!
The guide Zena was awesome. She made the trip a great experience.

We loved the fact that this was a very small group, only 6 people! Our tour guide/driver was a sparkling, knowledgeable young woman who gave us just the right balance of information and time to explore. So much better than a tour bus and a crowd of dozens being herded around.
Other than a little mix up at the beginning, this tour was amazing. Versailles is something that shouldn't be missed! The tour of Marie Antoinette's small house and the hamlet were actually our favorite part - the part that would have been missed if we would have done a half day tour. Our tour guide was excellent!
Trip was great and our tour guide was very good. Only bad thing was that I had beef at the restaurant and it was tough. I would recommend a chicken dish along with the fish.

Versailles is a wonderful place...just not on the weekend or during a Paris break when you cannot stuff one more person into the place. The tour guide was wonderful...pickup and drop was well executed.
The fountain show is not worth scheduling on Sunday...see this fabulous palace during the week when you probably can breathe in the various halls.
Enjoyed the tour very much. They made the whole day easy! Really good tour guide.
Our guide Gwyen was great.The tour was very good, we were very happy that we decided to take this tour.
An excellent tour! Our guide, Zara, was terrific and the tour is arranged to take in the key rooms at the main palace, the gardens, and the Petit Trianon. It was a perfect tour.
outstanding tour, lots of history to enjoy, part of tour package included being picked up by tour guide at the hotel, made whole tour easy. Guide was excellent, the best we have ever had and we have had a number of tours in Europe,
A fantastic day! Our guide Michelle was just terrific. She was very informative and passionate about the history of Versailles. Michelle always made sure we saw the best bits and was very patient with our small group of 6. Lunch was lovely also, a great bunch of friendly people made the day even more enjoyable, especially for me as I was travelling alone. For me the absolute highlight was Marie Antoinette's palace, especially the village. It was a treat. This tour is a must. Even though one day is not enough, you won't see enough in a half day tour. Hassle free hotel pick and drop off as well. Highly recommended.
Great tour. Since there were only six people on this tour, the tour guide was able to customize our tour and take us to see some things that big groups could not see.
Excellent tour highlighted by a very competent and entertaining tour guide. She was certainly special and please look up her name and give her high praise.
This was a great tour, the guide was brilliant, the Palace amazing, well organised and on time. We really enjoyed the tour and lunch was great.
A very interesting and enjoyable tour. Hotel pickup and drop off is good. English speaking guide along with fuide using a speaker in van and quiet boxes on this tour was appreciated. Lunch included in tour was very good. Would do this again, not enough time to see everything available but we did see a lot.
Great tour of the castle and grounds. Nice lunch and then a tour of Marie Antoinette's holiday house and the village she had built.
This was the best. The guide was outstanding. Can't say enough for this trip...the guide was on time, she protected us from the pushy crowds, received lots of local knowledge.
