We were pleased with our tour to Versailles. The coach left on time and arrived back early, which is a rare thing after having done many bus tours. Our guide, Pauline, was wonderful -- she was a wealth of knowledge about Versailles. Wish we'd had more time to explore the gardens, but for someone who doesn't have the time in their trip to devote more time at Versailles, then this tour length is perfect.
Great tour. Unfortunately, a lot of difficult walking. From where the bus parks up to the Palace, it's all cobblestone and difficult. You have to keep your head bent to see where you walk and it's uphill all the way. But the palace is magnificent. The rooms are unbelievable. The crowds are also unbelievable as well. Lots of shoving and pushing just to see the sites and take pictures (no flash). But I'm glad I did it.
A wonderful day! Very comfortable bus drive and wonderful tour guide. I would highly recommend using Viator.
Our guide was fantastic, easy to find location to start tour. best thing we did in Paris
Wery well organized, everything was on schedule, no surprises. All other activities in Paris were scheduled via Viator as well and everything worked out just as planed. Thank you Viator!
Visited on 6th May 2014. The tour guide Marion was super excellent. The tour was exactly as promised. The bus was not overcrowded and Marion kept the tour very interesting. Visit to Paris is not complete without visit to Versailles. This tour is a must.
It was worth the purchase. It was so very easy to find the spot. They were all very helpful. The tour was informative and honestly I thought it was plenty long. We did the half day morning tour and it was perfect.
Have to see it to believe it. A must see attraction if you are visiting France.
It was an excellent tour. The guide was very knowledgeable. She also kept an eye out for my youngest daughter who stuck to her like glue. There was time afterwards to walk the property and gardens. The coach bus was very comfortable. I would do it again without hesitation.
Loved our guide John Louie . Was knowledgable, entertaining and made the beautiful trip to Versailles even better!
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.
