Absolutely blew me away. The place was incredible. Couldn't have done it all without using skip the line

Great trip and a great guide. The only drawback was the overwhelming number of people going through the Palace and the short amount of time available for the palace part of the trip. Would definitely recommend people to 'skip the line'.

We had a wonderful time at Versailles. Who knew there was such opulence in the world? It explains volumes! Our tour guide, Greg, was fabulous. We all highly recommend this tour.

This was great. Our guide Leo from Ireland was wonderful. He was very helpful and informative, not to mention very funny in his explanations. The french market was also great, but bring plenty of cash and buy only what you will eat because it gets heavy when walking in the gardens. Also, going on a Sunday was better because all the gardens were open and fountains running. Overall, amazing experience!!!

Excellent organisation and tour guide. Again the venue was extremely overcrowded. Thank you for an unforgetable experience.

This tour was excellent from start to finish. Our guide was extremely knowledgable about all the things one might want to know about Versailles and provided us with interesting and entertaining tidbits throughout the day. The group itself was small and intimate, this was definitely not one of those tours where you get rushed around like a herd of cattle. I would highly recommend anyone considering a trip to Versailles to consider going on this tour.

I really liked Aaron our guide and was surprised that the lunch was a good sandwich and sweet role. The tour did require more walking than we had expected. Inside the palace was a zoo. Too many people to really enjoy. The grounds were worth the trip.

Excellent tour guide , well done Greg. Inside the castle too busy . So lucky we had the guided tour through the gardens. The market was fun too and I bought yummy cheeses and wine to supplement my lunch..

Our guide, Gregory, was great. He met us at the station and was helpful from the start. His knowledge of Versailles was deep, but his most obvious characteristics were his good humor, flexibility, and resourcefulness. Our tour took place in a driving rainstorm, and despite our rainwear and umbrellas, our group was soaked in no time. He took us to a restaurant on the grounds where we settled at covered tables and attempted to dry off near the heaters. He gamely ordered a cup of coffee from the waiter and fended off the waiter's unhappy comments. After several of us ordered drinks, he patiently helped to divide the check among those who ordered.
The one negative is the fact that we only had an hour in the chateau. I have been inside before, but for those who had not been there before, it was not enough time to visit the rooms and listen to the included audio guide.
I purchased this trip on a two for one basis, it was definitely a good value.

Our guide was fantastic. The palace and gardens were just amazing. The market was really authentic and we found a wine shop that uncorked our wine and gave us glasses. We were provided yummy baguette sandwiches, a pastry and waters and just added our own wine and fruit to enjoy on our picnic. Well worth the price

Very good tour guide (Connor). Well worth the money and skipping the lines. Gardens are beautiful and the properties are amazing! We received a great amount of history.

Our guide was great. He shared tons of history and information so that the tour had meaning beyond beautiful gardens and an opulent palace. It was well organized, but still flexible enough that those in our group were all accommodated.
