It was nice to have everything planned and organized. We also liked that we could bring any train back to Paris and had free time to shop and eat after the tour on our own.
Ellen was full of great facts and made the tour of the gardens very interesting.
We had a very nice tour guide Sarah who is very friendly and knowledgeable. We have with us a 6-year kid so the walking in the Gardens was a bit challenging for him as it was quite a long walk, Yet Sarah was very flexible to allow us to break from the main group, and meet them up again for the Palace tour. The Skip the Line is obviously the best part of the tour!
Well organised; our guide had a great personality as well as being informative; she was able to take us directly to some excellent views of the gardens, including the dancing/musical fountains. The palace was even more opulent than we expected; the audio guide was good, but it would have been great to experience some rooms, e.g. the hall of mirrors, with fewer people around!
Excellent experience and good value for the cost. The tour was very well organized and easy to deal with. Our tour guide for the gardens was incredibly knowledgable, very personable and really added to the experience (great job, Jess-from Melbourne!). Very enjoyable and would do this again.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour to Versailles with Carlo, in late June. He explained everything very well and the tour of the gardens was stunning - very worthwhile. Our kids (15 and 12) also enjoyed the tour and Carlo maintained their interest. Thanks for a great day!
A must see if you are traveling to Paris. The meeting location was easy to find. We promptly boarded the train for a short 30 minute train ride to Versailles. The grounds were gorgeous! We explored the outside first. Our guide gave a tour and short description of each area. We returned to the front gate of the palace where our guide gave us our skip the line ticket and let us go to explore the inside of the palace on our own. Versailles is beautiful!
Juan Carlos was excellent as our guide. Loved the Gardens!! No waiting in line for visiting inside the Palace
was great. Enjoy this tour very much. Would recommend this tour.
I loved this trip. Our guide was so knowledgeable and took us all around the groves behind the palace, describing all of the different fountains, statues and areas that we would have never known about. The line to enter Versailles was estimated to be 2-2.5 hours, so skipping that was great. Who has time to wait in line for hours while in Paris? I would recommend this day trip.
Jess (tour guide) was excellent, her knowledge and her navigation of the Palace Gardens made for an excellent tour despite the bad weather. Recommend that you visit on a weekend to ensure that you get to see all of the attraction of this tour.
Martin, our tour guide was excellent! He spoke perfect English, was very knowledgeable and communicated it beautifully! He actually stimulated an interest in history for me which is saying a lot for me! He was very personable and had a great sense of humor? I highly recommend this tour and especially this guide!
Justin was amazing! So glad we took the tour of the gardens. Very informative. Loved the tour.
The castle was hot and stuffy and too many people!!!
