A day trip not to be missed.The main palace needs to be seen to be believed especially the Hall of Mirrors. The tour included a lovely lunch and this was followed by a visit to both the Grand Trianon and Petit Trianon Palaces as well as Marie Antoinette's Village. A thoroughly enjoyable day out of Paris. Our tour guide Helene was exceptional.

This was a very good day trip to Versailles, well worth the fee charged. Pickup at the hotel was prompt. The driver/guide (Helene, I think) was a competent driver and fun to be with. She gave very clear instructions as to where to be and how much time we had to wander by ourselves. Our entrance to the castle, although very congested, was eased by our status as a guided group. The tour of the interior was very good. I had expected a picnic/style lunch, so was surprised and pleased by lovely full meal in attractive restaurant, le Petit Venice. We had plenty of time to wander the gardens and enjoy the fountains and music, such a pleasant wander after the congestion of the castle. Our visits to the Grand and Petit Trianons were informative and very interesting. We had lots of time to enjoy Marie Antoinette's farm. A lovely day! Being part of a small group is very comfortable, all the details are arranged for you and you meet some new friends. I would have no hesitation in recommending this day trip.

Excellent trip! The tour guide Elisa a very knowledgeabe person -- very good. We recommend a full day trip instead of half a day it is a lot to see at Versailles. The lunch was very good also.

This was a very good deal because they picked me up at my hotel and dropped me off and I didn't have to waste time waiting in line for a ticket.

This place is amazing and our tour guide Eric was wonderful. Lunch was very nice. Eric kept moving the van so that we did not have to walk back and forth which was nice since Versailles is huge. Great tour.

This tour was great. It was only for half a day but there was enough time to visit the chateau. The pick up was on time, the tour guide was excellent. It was a great day and we do not hesitate to recommend this excursion. Group of 8 people from Montreal.

Exactly as described on the web site. 6 guests
in our group. Tour guide very, very nice and extremely knowledgable. (a degree in art history) Very enthusiastic, made sure we all enjoyed ourselves.
Was nervous about arranging the transportation part by phone when we arrived at our hotel in Paris, but the concierge took care of it, and everything was fine.
I travel a lot.....and I will be making all my tour arrangements with Viator. Excellent service and value.

Our guide arrived on time, was very courteous and friendly, she gave us a history of the palace prior to when we got there, so we would have a bit of a heads up to what we were seeing. The tour was great, your given FREE audio tour devices and can stroll amongst the palace and grounds at your own leisure. The garden was absolutely fantastic, would say if you have the time, please check out Versailles on the weekend, so you can see the fountains going.

Celine was a great guide for our small group tour, knowledgeable and humorous and worked to get us the best experience on a day where Versailles and many french historic sites were open to all (Patrimony weekend). Versailles is certainly on the 'must do' list for a Paris visit and we would certainly go again.
