Fantastic! The driver picked us up at our hotel on time and was very friendly. We were able to bypass the very long line into Versailles. I would recommend this tour for everyone. It was easy, safe and reliable.
The guide was fantasic with plenty of information about Versaille and the history of Paris while driving to Versalle the pick up service was also one great full package. As this was our very first trip to Paris we would totally recomend Viator to our friends and also rebook once again soon hopefully. You made our holiday in Paris GREAT.. many thanks Viator Tours
Thoroughly enjoyed our tour - small group of 6, prompt pickup at our hotel. Walter our guide was knowledgable, entertaining and his English was excellent. The palace and grounds were of course breathtaking, but especially loved Marie Antoinette's little theater and farmhouse.
This tour is a must do for anyone who has not been to Versailles before. The guide was very knowledgeable and made the day a special one for all. Lunch as the Petite Venice Restaurant (converted from the old stables), was top knotch. Glad we took the full day tour and saw all there was to see in Versailles instead of only the Palace.
Recomendado es un tour muy completo, la guia super preparada y super paciente. El lunch en el restaurant es delicioso vale la pena estar todo el dia en Versailles. El servicio excelente en puntualidad, amabilidad, transporte. Me encanto!
This was a fantastic tour and our guide was excellent, and he had a great sense of humour as well as knowledge. I wish I had taken a day tour as there was so much more I could have seen.
This tour was perfect, only 8 people and we were 4, so it was my family and another family of 4. Pick up was on time, arriving Versailles was just a small ride from Paris and the only thing was the huge line to get into the Palace. The great thing was that our tour guide mede the line for us while we visit the Gardens of the Palace and we meet him half way in the line. Still it was a long line , but really worth it. Great time at Versailles .
my 12 year daughter and I took this tour. the driver was very polite and knowledgeable of the history and areas we passed on our way to Versailles. We got there early, which was key, as you are able to walk around and take pictures before the thousands of people arrive. Such an amazing place, wish we would have spent more time there.
This trip was well worth the money as we had an experienced guide. Recommend the tour highly.
The tour guide provides some interesting and entertaining history of Paris, France, and the Palace of Versailles on the drive to the palace. The skip-the-line component is worth the price all on its own because that saves you about an hour of standing in the hot sun at the front gate. The actual palace and gardens are self guided but you do get a headset for inside the palace and a map for the gardens that the tour guide can help you plan where to walk and what to see.
Our guide drove us through the gardens, Marie Antoinette's cottage, the small palace....things I had not seen. Then we did not have to wait for tickets or entry. It was an audio tour which was fine, and we still had time for the gardens. Our hotel pickup was right on time.
Thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful tour. Schedule was realistic and allowed time for individual exploring of the grounds and gardens. Our guide, Abib (or Habib?) was great! He was friendly, knowledgeable, and informative, happy to answer questions, and an expert at guiding us through the crowds and pointing out special features. Also enjoyed the gourmet lunch. Can't imagine that a 1/2 day tour would be enough time to see this amazing place. We highly recommend this tour as one not to be missed.
We took the full day tour. We have a 7 years old. I would recommend this trip to family with younger children or elderly. No waiting time, jump the line, tour guard drove you to the entrance of all attractions. It's a little pricey but well worth it.
Sandra our tour guard speaks very good English.
