Great tour!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Great guide, comprehensive tour. Picked up and returned to our accommodation. Versailles is over-the-top magnificent. Extra crowded because we were there on a Sunday when the fountains are on. The palace is only the start. The gardens and fountains go on forever. Enjoyed lunch then toured the quieter Grand and Petit Trianons and finished with Marie Antoinette's farm - like a fairy tale village. Well worth a whole day.

Very well organised with a driver who gave us full background and history on the way to Versailles. We waited a very short time before entering the palace when we left the queue was enormous! All very well ordered and everything ran to time. A great time!!

The only way to see the Palace of Versailles. I couldn't believe the long line of people queued to go in the ordinary entrance. Whilst the group tour entrance was busy, it didn't take long to get through. Faby our guide was fabulous. She was interesting to listen to and made the tour into an interesting experience. The Palace itself, the gardens and park are a must see on any visit to Paris, as it is truly a magnificent piece of French history.

An excellent trip and good value for money. Our guide, Sandrine, was lovely, very knowledgeable and helpful considering the dreadful weather. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Very convenient. Driver/guide was on-time. Drove and told us some history and also pointed out landmarks. Went to the gardens first. I brought my elderly parents and they walked a bit before resting. We were given about 45 mins i think in the gardens. Then waited about 15 mins before he managed to get us through the queues. We took the audio guide and wandered around by ourselves. Time was just about enough. After the tour, he showed us a bit of versailles town itself before driving back to the hotel. Highly recommend this tour if you want a hassle-free, quick tour or if you are bringing elderly people.

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!
