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!
Wonderful tour of Versailles - lovely and knowledgeable guides!

Very knowledgeable guide, travel arrangements were seamless.
Amazing tour thanks to the fantastic guide we met at Versailles (Harvey)!!!!!!!!!!! Extremely knowledgeable and engaging! If I were guaranteed, Harvey as a tour guide again I would sign up in a heartbeat (hoping this is true next year when I will visit again). Highly recommended for all.
The young gentleman that was our guide was very good with a lot of great info,including ad libbing while we waited for fire alarm to be taken care of.
Absolutely recommend it! Our guide, Sendhil, was very knowledgeable and explained everything in an easily understandable manner. We would've been entirely lost with him.
It was a terrific experience. Our tour guide, Claire was outstanding and extremely knowledgeable. A definite must.
Excellent tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour a fun learning experience.
Skipping the line always worth it. The guide was wonderful, informative, and easily understood. Absolutely loved the tour. Always seems hard to do it in one day.
fantastic! Our guide was wonderful, sweet and very patient with everyone on our tour. The Palace was very crowded but she was able to get us through. She was a pleasure and the best part of the tour!
Was very enjoyable despite the crowds. We went specifically on Sunday so that we could also see the gardens and fountains / music show. Very organized from a Paris deparrture.

Great tour! Our guide Caroline was knowledgeable and interesting. She made sure we were with her at all times so we didn't get lost in the shuffle and she was patient with us while we took many pictures of this beautiful palace. My favorite room was the hall of mirrors I believe they call it. Mirrors on one side, windows on the other, and chandeliers scattered above. The only thing I would do different next time is meet the guide at the metro station instead of at the Palace because when we arrived at the meeting spot, nobody was there. We searched the grounds with no luck and thought they had left without us. Luckily, we ran into our tour who were running late. Besides that little panic moment, we had a wonderful time with Caroline and would recommend her again and again! Thank you Caroline for making our honeymoon trip so special!

Herve, our tour guide, was outstanding. He is very passionate about Versailles and it was contageous. He gave us so much information and was very lively in everything he said... Bravo Herve, because of you, we loved Versailles even more. However, I am a little dissapointed with Viator, who guaranteed me a group of 20 and less when we were 24. So Viator did not ived up to its commitment.
