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
Our guide was wonderful, never felt rushed? Bus and driver were very good.
Aunque el guía fue bastante grosero con algunos de los participantes (que requerían algún tipo de asistencia por discapacidad), tenía un amplio conocimiento del palacio y sus jardines, con lo cual fue sumamente interesante e informativo.
Although we did not get the Fountain show due to the time of the year, the gardens were beautiful. The tour guide knew her stuff and was very friendly. The personal earphones for the tour in English worked out very well. Got to see all that we came for and loved it. The bus trip was okay as Versailles is an hour outside Paris. We took a nap even though the guides were talking. Would do it again.
Although you could spend days at Versailles, this half day tour was more than sufficient for us. I would highly recommend the fountain tour as it allowed better insight into the grandeur of Versailles and its gardens. Our guide was delightful and her dry sense of humour made the time even more enjoyable. Highly recommended!
