Our guide, Zara, was very personal and informative. We were the first pick up and last drop off so we spent a bit more time in the van than we thought. A must trip for anyone though.
We were picked up right on time by our wonderful guide Gwen. There were 8 people in our tour which was a perfect size. Gwen was so knowledgeable about everything and really made the tour of Versailles incredibly interesting. She also really helped manage the crowds. Lunch was very nice - delicious plus a chance to get to know our fellow travellers. We were dropped off back at our door again exactly on time. Truly a great experience. I would request Gwen if I were to do another tour!!
Guide was great, the tour was informative but crowded - Versailles usually is - lunch was OK. All in all, a very good day.
Enjoyed the trip, would have skipped the lunch for more time at the Gardens!
Great tour and very experienced tour guide made the visit even more enjoyable
Natalie did a wonderful job, interesting and entertaining, this is the tour to go on
Very knowledgeable guide. Nice small group. No queues. An excellent day out.
Nabeela was highly informed, helpful and kind.
This tour was all day. Her explanations were expert and she knew how to cut through the crowds effectively. Versailles is massive and I feel that I saw the main sights.
Lunch was lovely as were the other members of the group
Well worth the expense! Michelle was a wonderful and enthusiastic guide, the bus was very comfortable, the lunch delicious and the day was very memorable. Very highly recommended.
We had pick up and drop off at our hotel. Our tour guide only had seven passengers, and we were provided with audio boxes. Plenty of time to see the palace and the gardens. Lunch was a choice of steak or salmon. Everyone agreed the food was great! I have recommended this tour to friends travelling to Paris this year.
Michelle picked us up promptly at 8:30 am, gave us a wonderful Versailles tour while moving us easily through the crowds. I would recommend this tour highly.
This the best tour I ever had, the MS Nabila was our tour guide she was wonderful and very patient with my kids we see A lot of thing and the lunch was perfect
It was very nice tour
Our guide Ricardo was amazing! He was so engaging and knowledgeable. We appreciated his extra information that made the visit come even more alive.
This was absolutely the best was to do Versailles. Please do NOT do Versailles with a big bus tour. Having only 6 people in our group in a very nice and air-conditioned minivan was awesome. Our tour guide, Nabila, was awesome as well. Looking around at the other groups and guides, we definitely got a more entertaining tour than anyone else!
The lunch at La Flotille on the Grand Canal was good and we had plenty of time to wander around a bit on our own. Given how enormous and busy the palace and grounds are, I was quite happy we were able to relax on the way there and back, rather than having to take the train from Paris and stand in live forever.
One of the best places we visited. Tour guides were so friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended. A
We enjoyed our day at Versailles. Our tour guide was very good and the lunch at the restaurant was very good, also.
Our guide was top of the line! Tour was much better than we expected! Great job!!
Had a great time. Lucile did a great job of informing and educating us as the tour progressed This was the way to see Versailles, as otherwise we probably would have missed much
Our tour to Versailles was excellent. A previous tour was with a large group and it only covered a portion of the palace and none of the rest of the estate. We were picked up at our hotel at the designated time. There were eight persons in the group which was a great size. Oliver, our driver/guide was very well informed and provided many details about what we were seeing. We visited locations in the palace we had not been able to access previously. The Grand Trianon, Petite Trianon, and Marie Antoinette's Village were fantastic additions to the Palace. The price seemed higher than we planned when we booked it but, the entire experience was wonderful and worth every penny. Treat yourself and enjoy!
it was magical, we enjoyed every minute, and enjoyed the lunch like king and quin
Tour guide very knowledgable and fun.. Thoroughly enjoyed it and learned a lot
Our guide Isabelle was very informative and made the day very special. As lovers of art and history, we enjoyed this tour very much, including the lovely lunch by the Grand Canal.
We were picked up on time by Olivier and had the most informative, efficient tour of the Palace of Versailles. We did not have to wait long, and Oli always found quiet corners, even in the most crowded rooms, to give us information about the history of the room and the history of France at that time. We especially loved Marie Antoinette's house and farm. The lunch was superb - we were very surprised! We thoroughly recommend this tour. Borgy from Australia.
