It was raining and the sky was gloomy. However, our spirits were not dampened. We learnt more about the French revolutions from the guide. It was an enjoyable trip out of the city.

Five stars, except for the crowds, which you could do nothing about.
The guide was very good, but once outside I couldn't keep up, so missed any commentary there. It really didn't matter as the photo takers were moving at about my speed.
It was as good as I anticipated. Everyone was very helpful and their equipment was first-class.

I was skeptical when my wife booked this tour but I am happy to say it was worth it. Quick pick up in Paris and it took a quick 35 minute ride to Versailles. The tour guide was very informative with the small group I was in. Great sit down lunch with the other group. Just be prepared for a lot of walking around the gardens and to the other chateaus. The pace wasn't too bad but it dragged on after 3pm. I highly recommend this tour since everything was taken care of. I was with my 8 year old daughter and it kept her busy looking around.

This tour is worth seeing. Be warned there will be a lot of walking in case you're not capable of walking on long periods, but other than that, the guide was very informative and knows what they're talking about. We also had a great lunch and this is also included in the tour. I suggest you do this tour if you ever come to Paris. Definitely worth the money!

Excellent tour! Small group and informative and friendly tour guide made the trip both memorable and highly enjoyable. The lunch option was of an excellent standard

Loved this tour, the Palace and it's ground were absolutely amazing. You definitely need the whole day tour and more to take it all in. Our guide was great and very good in making sure that all were accounted for. The lunch was perfect especially after the morning walk. It is a long day of walking so for some it was too much. I did hope that the Company was able to find an interpreter for the family from Italy, it's a lot of money to spend and not have or get the full experience of the Palace.

This tour was excellent! Even my sixteen year old daughter was engaged for the entire day! Our guide was very knowledgeable and took the time to give extra details and interesting facts about The Louis' as well as Marie Antoinette and other nobility of Versailles. My only suggestion would be that if the tour happens on a hot day, as ours did, the guide should build in some rest stops along the way as the walk is extensive. But we thoroughly enjoyed the tour!

We had a wonderful visit. The fountains were working with the music playing.The palace was just beautiful, the gardens looked gorgeous, our lunch was lovely and the venue just right. We walked to the farm and the fruit wasa ripe on the trees and the Theatre was opened during the afternoon and we were able to go in - such an unexpected opportunity. And 1 of the gardeners picked some fruit for us which we ate as we walked. Could it get any better ?
