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.
We had a great day at Versailles. Our guide was prompt and precise in picking us up and she did a great job all day of providing just the right amount of commentary to make the tour of Versailles, the gardens and the Trianons come alive. I never felt rushed or overloaded with details. Being able to by-pass the lines to get into the palace was terrific. I highly recommend this trip.
Skipping the lines is key, even if they didn't have a great tour guide or comfortable transportation or a fine lunch meal, this tour would be worth it just for the line skipping. Oh, and they do offer a great tour guide, comfortable transportation, and fine meal with a view of the Grand Canal.
Commentary by Michelle 9our tour leader was well focused to our mixed group
Pickup and delivery to accommodation took all the stress out of the tour
Outstanding!!! Our guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable. A very pleasant day and the lunch was fantastic.
Ricardo was an awesome guide. He was very knowledgeable and made sure we saw the important items/details on the tour and made sure we could hear and see what he was telling us. It was very interesting to see how the royalty of the time lived and hear how they lived.
Amazing visit to this Palace!
The guide explained in detail all the history that you can see inside this walls
took care of all the group and make sure we all where conformable considering the cold weather on the day of the visit
I always book with Viator in all the cities I'm in. They are the best and this tour was no exception. We had a very small group and had a wonderful tour from beginning to end. The lunch was good too!. We are planning another trip to Europe and we will use them again!
Small group of 6 with an excellent tour guide. Picked up from our hotel on time. With a small group we were able to leave Versailles without having to wait around as happens with large groups. Excellent lunch included.
This tour was Incredible! Versailles and its gardens are something to be experienced. Our tour guide Ricardo was so personable and knowledgeable--he brought the experience to life. The lunch was also very good. Highly recommend this tour!
Our tour guide was Michelle. She was excellent amazing the knowledge this woman gave about the castle, the grounds, and the people who lived there so long ago. If you enjoy history and want to see the most amazing grounds and castle, don't miss this! At first we thought it was a bit pricey, but it was a full day tour, the lunch was wonderful and the experience incredible. Getting to stand in front of the fireplace where King Louie XIV had 5 yr. old Mozart give a piano recital, and see Marie Antoinette's and Napoleon's furniture and clothing, and the gold inside the castle was just breathtaking. If we ever get the chance again, we will do this tour. We visited Prague, London, Paris, Venice, Versaille and Rome and took a number of Viator tours. All were extremely well done, but I have to say this was perhaps my favorite.

This was simply the best! The gide was knowledgable and enchanting. She had a passion for what she did. IF you are going, this is a definite must.
Although the weather was not the best we enjoyed our day at Versailles. Our guide was very knowledgable and personable. She obviously enjoys her work and was very engaged with our group. It was an excellent experience.
