My husband and I enjoyed the convenience of being picked up at our hotel. Fred was our driver and he was super friendly and funny. I wish the drive included a short tour of Paris as well.
The guide was over two hours late picking us up leaving us less than an hour and a half to tour Versailles. Versailles was magnificent and the small amount of time we had to spend there was not enough to see all of it or to experience it's fabulous gardens. We definitely did not get our money's worth on this tour
Guide was great. We were early getting to Versailles, so he drove us to the gardens behind the palace and gave us a bit more history of the place. Very nice.
Fabulous tour! Wish I had more time in the outside gardens!
This was a fantastic tour.... our guide/ escort/ van driver Cecilia was very knowledgeable and informative, personable and humourous... and a great driver!.... all this made it a terrific day.... the Palace was MAGNIFICENT! Well worth the cost.
It was a good tour, saw everything we wanted to see, shame about the crowds though, I guess to be expected. It was very cold, so didnt stay in the garden so much. beautiful palace, good guide, informative. would recommend.
Versailles was beautiful but we were very dissapointed with our driver/ guide. He was rude and he was only friendly and helpful to the white people in our group. There were 3 of us asians in the group and his back was facing us the whole time he was explaining things about versailles.
Excellent tour guide - enjoyed hearing the history and avoiding the crowds.
the 4 and half tour was to short. we got picked up at 8:10am had to go to 2 more hotels in morning traffic. by the time we got to Versailles we only had 2 hours to tour the museum and the flower garden. Did not have enough time . we spent 2 1/2 hours in the van. the tour of the museum should be 3 hours. Nicolas was wonderful great tour guide/driver. But, you should really make the tour 5 1/2 to 6 hours for the price we paid.
Excellent Tour! Guide was well versed and pointed out several points of interest along the way to Versailles. A Must See. We did 4 hour tour and it was just perfect unless you want to fully explore each and every corner of the gardens. Would do it again!
Wow what a place. This was a fantastic tour. It dropped you off at the door, provided your with the audio guide and then your were on your own to do your own tour. But just plan your trip in advance so you get the most out of the trip as your time is limited to only 90mins once there.
Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Although we had to wait for other groups we didn't have to wait in line as our guide took care of the arrangements and was very accommodating. Being picked up at our hotel made the tour more relaxing than taking the Metro. Versailles itself was crowded even for September but is a must-see!
Great driver and prompt pickup.
Audio guides are very vague and not really useful.
Versailles and the palace were excellent. We booked a half day tour, but it turned out to be more like a two hour tour, not including the drive there and back. Our driver was due to pick us up at 1:15 pm but then when we confirmed they told us he'd pick us up at 1:30 pm. He didn't arrive by 1:40 pm so I called head office, and they told me he was delayed, and he'd be there in 5 minutes. He eventually arrived near 2 pm, so when we arrived at the palace, we had to rush through to visit all the rooms, Hall of Mirrors, the queen 's surrounding gardens, and then we had to return. I don't feel we received the value of a half day's tour considering the price we had to pay. Yes, our driver was friendly, but he didn't provide us with much knowledge and history of the Palace of Versailles on our way there. With the steep price of this tour, one is better off to find their way there and do the tour solo.
