This is a fantastic way to get an overview of life in Versailles! Oh my gawsh! Tour picked us up right on time and our guide Navil was amazing from the beginning of the day to the end! Lunch was great. Tour had ten people - perfect size. Loved seeing the hamlet and getting lost in the gardens. Driver and transportation were also spot on. Well worth the money! Beautiful day.
One of the best guides we've ever had and wonderful cafe and lunch was a real surprise.
If you are a fan of history and gardens, this tour is worth every euro! The van pickup at our hotel was so convenient and there were only 7 of us on the tour. Our guide (Etienne???) whisked us out of Paris and we were at Versailles at opening time (already super-crowded, great to skip the lines). The morning included the guided tour of the interior of Versailles, then we had time on our own to explore the gardens. I highly recommend booking the tour for a day that the fountains are running (Saturday and Sunday, but double check that). We met our guide for a leisurely lunch at Le Flotille by the Grand Canal, then continued the tour of Marie Antionette's hamlet, Petit Trianon and Grand Trianon. The full day tour really gives you the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of Versailles. Definitely wear good walking shoes and bring a little umbrella for all your Paris adventures.
This was a fabulous day. Our driver and tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. The lunch was lovely and they were able to accommodate my gluten free food requirement. I highly recommend this tour.
Great tour with a small group of just 8 people! Very knowledgable and friendly guide! A must see!
This trip was well worth the money. To have priority entry to avoid the queues was fantastic. Also was great to go to the farm and Trianon. Guide was great and the wine with Lunch good too.
We had a very enjoyable tour and felt well looked after by our informative guide. The Palace is of course spectacular but it was also great to see the Grand and Petite Trianons and the little village that Marie Antoinette constructed (and get away from the massive crowds at the Palace). All in all a very well conducted and pleasant tour.
This is the tour to take!! Francis, our guide, was well informed and by getting in early, we missed the crowds. The all day tour really lets you see it all--and there is a lot to see!! So glad I took this tour!!
Well worth the experience. The guide was informative and we appreciated being picked up and dropped off.
Great tour, better than expected our guide was the best!!! I think her name was Roxanna.
Roseanne would have to be one of the best guides in Paris. Her commentary was colourful, interesting and informative. She had a wonderful sense of humour and was very responsible for the people on the tour. This was undoubtedly one of our best experiences in Paris. We loved Versailles and its gardens and enjoyed our meal at Grand Canal restaurant. Worth every cent we spent on it.
