This tour was great. It did require a bit of walking. The gardens are huge and beautiful. To see the fountains and the gardens in spring was really nice. Versailles is amazing. Our tour guide gave us all the time we needed for questions and pictures.

Great tour, very organized to meet and get you to Versaille. The tour guides were very good and the whole day went very smooth. You had time at the end on your own and getting back to paris on the train was very easy after they told us exactly what to do.

Only had a short stop over in Paris and had to add Versailles to our must do list. Our tour guise Christine was very informed and made the tour enjoyable. This is a must see tour, highly recommended.

Meeting point was easy to find.
Learnt lots of history and information about the Versailles palace from the guide. Very in-depth. Guide spoke clearly and we had time to see and take photos of the rooms and palace.
I would definitely book a tour with Viator again.

Very good. Small groups are so much nicer. Lots of walking so you need to be up to it. (Reasonably long walk from station plus around expansive gardens and Palace then walk back to station)

If I could give this six stars I would, truly. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone and everyone!
I was concered that going to Versailles would take too much time from our short trip to Paris, and that the tour would be too rushed given the vast size of the palace and gardens. But this tour was just perfect!
Our guide was on time, easy to understand and provided us with an incredibly interesting overview of the gardens and the palace. No waiting in line, no pushing through the crowds -- just a relaxed overview of the rich history.
Truly not to be missed!

Our pre-tour communications were prompt and clear. Our guide Carolina, arrived promptly and explained the course of our tour and why. The tour was paced well to suit our level of tolerance. We are from Los Angeles, and don't walk much. It was an extremely crowded afternoon, and she knew routed our tour to avoid long lines, even with the restroom stops! If you want to make the most of your visit, I highly recommend booking this tour!

Great to skip the line and have a guide for most of the tour. Fantastic picture opportunities. Very crowded inside the palace, so hard to get good pictures there....

The guide was exceptional - she answered all my questions and took extra care to help us find lost property.

Excellent tour! Our guide, Catherine, showed up right on time. She was knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions we had. She got us in without waiting in any lines. She distributed headsets which allowed us to hear her without having to crowd around her. There was only one other couple on the tour so it was like having a private tour for ourselves. Versailles is a must see and this tour was definitely the way to go. I would highly recommend it.
