Enjoyed the time with our guide Ricardo who was very knowledgeable and informative about Versailles and all things Paris. Versailles was an impressive palace and a must see if you have the time while in Paris. Our day was exceptionally crowded, but you were still able to take in the grandeur of the reign of the Sun King. I would definitely book this tour again!

From the moment our guide Fleur came to pick us up from the hotel, we knew we were going to have a great day. She knew her stuff, what a magnificent day, from pickup, skip the line to the Museum, to the gardens, to lunch, to the Grand Trianon, the Petite Trianon to the hamlet that Marie Antoinette had built for her children. We did not have to worry about getting there, best to pay for this tour and relax and enjoy.
