Tour was fantastic, just the right amount of time. Pick up and drop off at our hotel was convenient and much appreciated. Tour guide was very informative and was able to answer all questions easily.
We did this almost immediately after arriving! Even though exhausted from travel, we knew we had to see this while we had time.
What a wonderful guide and (truly) small group tour.
Having a handfull of people makes a HUGE difference to the experience. And, if all the tourists speak the same language, the guide can give more info before having to switch over to another language or languages.
We opted for the full day, small group tour and were absolutely thrilled by it. Our guide was charming and knowledgable. Included in the tour was a delicious lunch at a charming restaurant within the grounds, which included wine and desert. In addition to touring the palace itself and the Grand Trianon and Petite Trianon, we were also able to wander the grounds of Marie-Antoinette's "hamlet", a real delight. If you have never been to Versailles and want to visit, opt for the full day, small group tour, it is definitely worth it.
Our guide was Sophie. She was personable and well informed. She highlighted the important sights in the palace, and gave us a picture of the historical background of Versailles, both before and after Louis XIV. Our full day trip included lunch, which we enjoyed in an attractive restaurant on the palace grounds.
my wife and I really enjoyed the vast beauty and history of Versailles. Our tour guide Chris was very nice and very knowledgeable on the history. We would go again, thanks.
Fantastic day at Versailles that was made even more special by our tour guide Sophia who was knowledgable, organised and very competent and passionate about everything French. Wonderful day despite the chilly weather, highly recommended.
We were picked up at hotel driver great with tips early start made the day On arrival wait was about 15 minutes after tour on leaving wait was 1hour for groups 1.5hours for non group
Bus was best way to avoid a long long wait Trip back to hotel again great information from a great driver Best way to see Paris
The tour was excellent. Sylvan our guide was very friendly and knew his subject well. He spent time with each area and fully explained the history for us. It would have been nice to have him share lunch with us. We had just arrived in France and Sylvan gave us a first hand view of how friendly and helpful the French can be. I would recommend ViaTor to friends in the future. Please thank Sylvan for us.
This is a must see Tour, especially if this is your first time in Paris.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
I would definately recommend Viator again for First time visitors.
This was an independent tour which was great because you could stay in certain areas longer, like the gardens. Though they are currently renovating part of the gardens it was beautiful!! This is a tour for those who aren't big on tours but want to explore on their own!
Our guide was wonderful, Magid. I can't imagine trying to see all of Versailles without a full day and a guide. He was very interesting and knowledgeable. We had and English and Italian tour and we were nervous about that, but as he explained in our language we could listen and when he explained in the other language we were able to take pictures. It worked very well. Lunch was delicious. We had free time to explore and he walked with us for the rest of the tour and explained interesting details that we would never have known. We were able to relate many of the details he gave to some of our other sights in Paris like the Louvre and Musee d'armee. There were 4 in our family and we all enjoyed the trip. Thank you, Magid!
Impossible to see and enjoy on your own without a knowledgable tour guide to give the history behind each door and area you walk through. Our guide that only tours small groups was pleasant, entertaining and knew the history of this palace and its extensive grounds. Worth the price for full day tour
We had a great tour guide who came to our hotel to pick us up. She was very informative about Versailles and my daughter loved her narrative about this place.
A fantastic day. Superbly organised and a beautiful lunch. Our guide, Chris was incredibly knowledgable, spoke excellent English and peppered his stories with lots of detail and humour.
