This tour was a must see from Paris. Our tour guide, Matuanne, was amazing, very knowledgable and very enthusiastic! He really made the tour. Also the gardens were just breathtaking and our favorite part of the tour. We were a little unsure about how to get back to Paris via train but the tour guides went back via train as well and the entire rail system was very user friendly.
Our tour was wonderful. Our guide Orane was knowledgeable and helpful. The tour group size was small enough that it was easy to stay together. We took a tour bus to the site due to a transportation strike, we did not take the train. We had sufficient time to see a large part of the palace, and part of the grounds, plus had about 30 minutes to stroll around the grounds on our own. I recommend going early in the day, because it gets more crowded in the afternoon. I recommend this tour highly.
We had a superb tour with such a lovely guide, Anais. She was always kind, cheerful, patient with all our questions and thorough with all her answers, and so professional and even nurturing amidst big crowds and a lot of rain. When some in our group got separated including us, she was quite conscientious about repeatedly trying to contact us and ultimately finding us, reminding me of Christ's parable about the shepherd looking for the lost lamb.
This was a terrific tour because our tour guide knew so much about the history of the Versailles palace and the people who lived there. Her love of her work brought the stories alive. Even in the rain this was a great day. Comfortable walking shoes are a must, and remember to hold onto your train ticket even after you use it to get onto the train returning to Paris. You will need it to put into the turnstile in order to leave the train station at Paris.
Excellant tour guide even in the rain. Gave us options of going on or stopping when it started to rain. Very knowledgable tour guide. Would recommend to any and all.
The tour guide was very engaging and knowledgeable
I highly recommend although the option which is available for connecting with the tour group in Versailles would have been easier for the two of us instead of 20 people trying to navigate through a busy rail station
For first time Paris travelers, this selections optimal!
Thank you Mauireon sorry for the spelling mistakes
Tour was great, so was the guide. Was nice being able to skip the line!
Outstanding tour to match the magnificent palace. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. I highly recommend this tour!
Highly recommend the tour and the guide - very knowledgeable.
Gardens are absolutely fabulous as was the water show
This was the only organized tour and we were were so happy that we chose this one. Our guide, Ina not sure of spelling was amazing and kept us completely engaged. The tour was organized beautifully and would highly recommend. This was an incredible value!
We greatly enjoyed the Versailles tour. The tour was well-organized and your staff was very helpful. Our guide at the palace was exceptional in every way.
Good tour guide with lots of info and extra help with travel after tour.
Herve was a wonderful guide, great personality and full of information about the palace, gardens and the monarchy who lived there. We would highly recommend this tour, especially when you can see the fountains.
We had a fabulous time on this excursion with Yaelle! She was engaging as we toured the Palace and Gardens, and she shared many stories about Louis XIV, Louis XV, and Louis XV. She kept us moving through the crowded Palace, yet we didn't feel rushed. We had our questions answered throughout, and she was knowledgeable about French history, how the Palace came to be built in Versailles, the architects, materials, artwork, artists, etc. Loved every minute, and the train ride a short 30 minutes! From beginning to end, no hassle, we could relax and enjoy! Don't miss the gardens!
The palace of Versailles is spectacular. Our guide, Herve, was fantastic. His knowledge and love of history came through with flying colors. He was our favorite!
Every detail provided by Viator, was accurate:, meeting place,directions to get you to the meetingarea, the summary of the tour. The tour guide knowledge was outstanding .Great value too!
Good organisation - great clarity getting a group of disparate nationalities to Versailles from Paris. Hervé was possibly the best tour guide I've ever encountered bringing, charm, wit and a thorough knowledge of Versailles. His passion and communication were first class. Versailles itself was very busy!
What a wonderful tour-guide! Claire was so energetic, knowledgeable, and entertaining. We covered so much ground and enjoyed the palace and gardens thoroughly. There was some confusion ours about what time to meet for the tour, and when we called, the woman on the phone was very helpful and reassuring. It was a delightful day!!!
Guided transfer from Paris to Versailles and to our tour guide was excellent, thank you Michael Aussie, Aussie, Aussie. The tour was handled exceptionally well by Joshua. He drew us into the history and story of the palace and gardens and timed the walk perfectly for best viewing of the fountains.
This was a wonderful tour- started at the Invalides metro stop in Paris where we met up with a group and took the train RER to Versailles. Once at the palace we met our tour guide, Joshua, and he took us on the palace and gardens tour. We all had headsets and he talked continuously, sharing history and background information and pointed out interesting things along the way. His knowledge and guidance were excellent and made the tour much more interesting and fun. The only unfortunate part of our day was that the weather was rainy/windy so we did not stay to explore the gardens further. We will have to come back!
