I felt it was too long, we had too much free time. Could've been done in half a day.
If you are going to do this tour, allow for a full day. This tour doesn't give enough time to explore unfortunately. We were given a lot less time than thought and literally had to rush through the palace and gardens. Didn't get to see the fountain show as had to leave. If you are on very tight timeframes then do the half day, but really it's not enough to see this beautiful palace. Allow the full day!
The drive to and from was longer than the actual tour, seemed like we did not get enough time to view the apartments esp. The Gardens.. Rushed! However, our Driver was very Knowledgeable and very Kind! He went the extra mile for our convenience!
From the easy pick up at our hotel, to the quick ride and no waiting in line, this tour fulfilled it's promise as written. Our tour guide was excellent, her driving safe, and her information very informative. We wanted a short visit due to time constraints and this tour provided us with seeing Versailles in a timely manner. The 9:15 time was perfect. Some rooms we had all to ourselves. Beat the crowds and go at this time.
Pick up was on time. The guide was extremely knowledgeable. Length of time of the tour was ideal. Highly recommend using this company.
The tour felt a bid rushed , would have like to see more of the garden and fountains. Overall , it was still amazing.
We signed up for the full-day tour and the cost was well-worth it. Our guide, Sylvien, was excellent. He knew his history and presented the information with enthusiasm. Lunch in the manger restaurant (included in the price) was delicious and the tour included every part of Versailles ---- even the "play" houses of Marie Antoinette on the grounds of the palace. I would definitely recommend the full-day tour.
we loved every minute of this tour. We were picked up very promptly at our hotel by Sophie our guide. There were four of us and four people from another family with two preteen girls like us...a good match. We got right in to the palace and learned a lot from our guide as we went from room to room. The lunch served to us was excellent. Good in everyway. It is a long tour though with a lot of walking...you must have good legs and a lot of stamina.
The tour guide was great, it was a small group of 8 which made it very pleasant. We were very lucky when at Versailles it was not very busy, it was very comfortable to walk around and enjoy the magnificent palace.What amazing place, a must see when you go to Paris. Go with a guide to learn all about the palace, try and stay as long as you can. Do not got Monday or Tuesday always busy, we went Thursday.
My boyfriend and I booked a tour of Versailles the night before for $130 each. The pick up went smoothly however once we got there getting inside the museum was extremely unorganized. We saw many other group leaders take charge and bring their tour groups inside seamlessly however our group had to wait in the rain for his colleague to meet him with our tickets. This was upsetting since it left us with only an hour and 40 minutes to tour Versailles. We also paid for audio guides, which we were really looking forward to using however our guide informed us that we would have to wait another 30 minutes to receive these audio guides. We decided to tour Versailles without audio guides to try and salvage as much time as possible. Overall it was not worth the $130, we saw other companies provide seamless tours for their customers so look elsewhere!
Our driver was on time to our hotel, very informative on the short ride to Versailles about history of the city, sites we passed and Versailles itself. Our group consisted of only 7 folks so we were not 'crushed' by people as the other tours we engaged. Got us straight into the Tour and prepared us for the 4 hours with tips and ideas. At the end we left on time and with no stress. Would highly recommend the morning visit as it makes the travel time from the City to Versailles easy as we missed both ends of Paris rush hour.
If you have 4-6 hours of free time and want to see Versailles I highly recommend this event.
Most amazing tour! Our guide Laura was absolutely brilliant! Ensuring we got the best pics and also a visit to Marie Antoinette ' s Theatre (not on the tour). Lunch was lovely. This tour is definitely worth the price - it's once in a lifetime!! Took 1,181 pics. Highly highly recommend!!!
