A beautiful over the top experience. Only regret was that the fountains were not operating on the day we visited.
The tour was fabulous and the weather was perfect. Bus and tour guide were really informative and prompt.
Fantastic tour, really enjoyed this. Taken by bus from central Paris, dropped at the gates of the Palace, where the audio guide fitted us out with earpieces. We then went through this spectacular Palace, our guide giving us an informed and interesting background to the excessive lifestyle of the former inhabitants. This place is quite stunning, and this tour a good way to see it. It gets crowded later in the day, so an early tour is best, although our guide said it wasn't crowded at all?? A couple of bottlenecks between rooms as different tour groups go through, but was pretty good. Glad we didn't queue up to get in, that would have made it a really long day. Highly recommended.
This was an excellent tour and the gardens and musical fountains well worth the money. The tour guides were professional and very organized. I especially appreciated this as I could not believe how many tourists were visiting the palace of Versailles. Their ability to keep all running smoothly was quite impressive.
Well organized well informed guide try to take tour on days when fountain show is available!
I absolutely love it, it took around 2 hours walking in the garden to see the fountain show and 1 hour inside the palace...it was packed in summer but really worth it...I did not have time to have a look at the small shop near the exit door as it was close to closing time, they have Laduree macarons shop and the palace souvenir shop, I suggest if you'd like to do the half day tour, choose the morning tour.
We enjoyed the tour. The tour guider is so nice and full experience.
Great tour!! Very knowledgable tour guide! Versailles is beautiful; definitely a must see!Would have enjoyed a bit more time in the gardens.
This was a well organised tour. The guide was very passionate about Versailles. She gave a very detailed and comprehensive tour. Well worth the visit.
either I paid for 2 Versailles and only used one. Please let me know. and if so can you credit me one tour. Thanks Brad
Bus was clean and comfortable. We did the Sunday fountain "show" option in June. Note: not a fountain show, Sun. is the only day all the garden fountains are on. Amazing to see but look forward to the biggest crowds you'll ever witness. Tour guide was wonderful
Tour director was great!!!! we really enjoyed the tour-just way too many people to fully appreciate the experience.
The guide was great.. explained the history of the palace in details.
tour was great disapointed didn't include fountain show. thought that it did
Loved this tour. Truly a sight to be seen. We had a wonderful and energetic tour guide who gave us the history of that time. The gardens were amazing!
Versailles is a "must see". Take the time is explore not only the Chateau but to explore the gardens and other buildings. The opulence and beauty can only to truly appreciated by personally seeing it. The only complaint would be the bottlenecks of tourists in certain areas of the chateau.
Good. The fountains are always a pleasant scene and delightful to watch.
The tour guide, Anne was very good. Her explanation of the history of the palace, how the king and queen once live their live was very humourous. My family of 7 thoroughly enjoyed the tour. I strongly recommend anyone who is planning to join the tour.
The gardens were not in full bloom as it was winter but a trip to Versaille was still well worth It. The palace is amazing and our tour guide was great. He was a young, blonde French man who was great to listen to because he really understood and loved the era and stories of the French Revolution.
The fountains were amazing worth going to see. The palace is awesome and the tour was the way to go
