Great tour guide! Had heaps of informations that never knew exists. The skip the line was amazing, save loads of time after the garden tour.
This is well worth it. Having a guide is great, you learn a lot more about the history of Versailles and the palace/gardens. We skipped all lines into the garden and palace. Once the tour was over we were allowed to stay inside the palace for as long as we wanted and go back into the gardens.
Our guide Richard was very informative - members from 3 generations in my family went on this tour and there was something of interest to all!
This tour was absolutely amazing, without it we would have had no idea what we were looking at. The tour guide was very knowledgable, told us some amazing facts that I went back and told friends. I would recommend this to everyone because without it you will be lost!
This tour was amazing. Our guide was informative and funny. He answered our questions and even offered to take pictures of our party of seven. I highly recommend it.
Excellent tour! Our guide Hannah made what could have been a congested mess a very enjoyable your. She navigated us around the grounds effortlessly and got us in queue on time to gain admittance to the chateau. Well worth the price!
This tour ended up being one of the best things we did while in Paris. It was very organized and we loved that it was a smaller group. The best part was our guide, Richard. He was very enthusiastic and kept us interested with the entertaining way he presented the history of Versailles.
We thoroughly enjoyed our Versailles experience, in fact it was one of the highlights of our 6 week European holiday. Our guide Melissa ? was relaxed and funny, yet professional and knowledgeable without being too geeky about the whole thing. I wasn't planning on enjoying the gardens as much as I did, which is testament to her engaging style. The independent ticket options allows you to leave as you feel and take your time through the chateau. Definitely recommended.
Victor was an awesome tour guide. Loved every aspect of the tour. Only complaint was to be more specific about the extent of walking. Some of the group had physical issues and we waited on them through out the tour. I would do this tour again.
Good tour well organised and conducted. Tour guide sorry I can't recall her name was excellent, being knowledgeable, accommodating, super efficient and a thoroughly nice person.
This is a fantastic tour. Our guide Lavigna ? was exceptional and the sights to see were impressive.
This was the best part of my trip. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. I couldn't have asked for anything more!!! I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Paris.
Sam was great. He provided the background and history in an engaging and insightful manner. Well woth the fee.
Great tour of the gardens with excellent commentary by our guide Melissa. Although the crowds inside the palace were annoying, it was wonderful to be able to enter directly without standing in line. Well worth the reasonable price of this tour.
Sam our Aussie guide was fun and informative. What a place! Train worked well and it was a good idea to find our own way back to Paris when we were ready.
Awesome tour. Guide was great and knowledgeable. Bit more walking than I expected but the gardens were amazing.
Totally exceeded my expectations! I have taken previous tours with Viator so I knew your tours were very high quality, but I still was surprised at how much fun this half day trip was. Melissa was our guide. She was a high energy, fun, smart young college graduate. Of course, skipping the line was AWESOME, but the tour of the nooks and crannies of the gardens was great also. We learned much more than we ever would have on our own. Thank you Viator and Melissa!
The instructions for the meeting point were easy to follow and the guide, Sam, was inviting, knowledgeable, and very considerate of everyone in the group. When I saw the incredible long, winding lineups, I was pleased to have had a skip the line tour. It was a remarkably sunny warm day to casually enjoy the gardens and Palace and the musical fountain works.
Not being a huge history buff, and being a poor college student, I was hesitant to book this trip. However, I was thoroughly pleased with this tour and I highly recommend it!! The gardens were breathtaking and I'm glad I had a tour guide to tell us all of the stories about what occurred here. I felt like I was living it! Hanna was absolutely fantastic. She made the tour so interesting and she was always willing to take pictures, answer questions, and help us with anything we needed! Very sweet. The skip the line pass was also a HUGE plus because the line was very long. Overall, very glad I did it it was wonderful!
