The tour visited all of the sites, and the tour guide was fabulous. The location for lunch was very appealing. Even on a very hot summer day, there was sufficient time for sight seeing AND recuperation. Highly recommended.
We had an excellent tour guide. This was a great way to see Versailles, the grounds, the summer palaces and the farm.
I knew this place would be amazing, and it did not disappoint. Our guide was knowledgable and lovely. It was a shame that the fountains weren't running that day.
Door to door service. Nice people to spend time with. Time to look around. Beautiful palace to look at, and decent food to eat. Wonderful addition to our trip. Highly recommend!
The car was on time, and it was very easy entering the Palace....the line was long however we went straight through.
I recommend this tour highly. It was entertaining as well as informative. Our guide was well-versed in the subjects and allowed opportunities to ask questions. The lunch at the canal restaurant was very pleasant. I enjoyed seeing the other areas of the estate and gardens which I had not seen previously.
This was a wonderful tour. Our tour guide picked us up at our hotel and along with 4 other people were were off. The information that our tour guide shared was informative and engaging you did not feel like there was going to be a test at the end. Beautiful day, great weather. Would do it again
Highly recommend the 'skip the line' and hassle free option this tour provided us. We had a wonderful day, learned and saw so much, and our tour guide really knew his stuff!
Loved loved this tour. Skipping the very long lines was very much appreciated - especially when an alarm went off as we exited the palace and we were told it was a security issue and they evacuated the entire building. Couldn't imagine being in that long line and then being told to leave. Guide Olivier was wonderful - a history major who really knew his stuff. Lunch was at a restaurant on the property. Steak or salmon and steak is always served rare there and was very fatty. Very nice desert and wine at least. Be aware if you have any walking issues - there is a lot of walking after lunch. Several members of our group were very tired. My only complaint would be that the tour description says we will be driven in a luxury minibus, it was a large van and we were squeezed in with 8 passengers - two sitting up front with the driver. Other than that I would most definitely recommend this tour. Worth every penny not to have to wait in the very long lines.
Really enjoyed this trip and our guide Nabila was great. She told us lots of interesting stories. Lunch was very good. Would recommend this trip.
This was a wonderful tour that was very informative on the history of Versailles. Would highly recommend.
Great tour guide. She was knowledgeable, personable, energetic and very patient.
Our tour guide was amazing!!!! She was very informed of the history and helpful with any questions we had. The best tour we had on the continent!!!!
Compliments to Lucille who was superb. Not only punctual, spoke good English, was well informed and helpful and when my wife left her prescription sunglasses in the car she came back to the hotel to deliver them! Very well done to Viator and Lucille!
Great time! The tour guide was very personal, easy to understand, and friendly. There was one other couple with our family, who were very pleasant.
Would highly reccomend!
Brilliant tour, made even better by having a superb guide, whose knowledge was not only enlightening but really interesting to listen to. Amazing tour, highly recommend the trianon and Anne Marie's Hamlet is just amazing and so unexpected.
An excellent tour of a stunningly beautiful palace. It is worth the visit just to see the ceiling frescos, but the whole palace is sumptuous and the tour very interesting. Lunch was first class with excellent food provided.
This tour was AWESOME. Our tour guide was the best. She was so nice and full of knowledge. I was a single female traveling alone and I couldn't have felt any safer. I honestly did not want the tour to end. I HIGHLY recommend this tour.
Wonderful to be in such a small group of lovely people. Our guide couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating or better informed. Viva Viator!
