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 ?
Guide was a character, knew all the Versaille people was informative and fun. Thoroughly enjoyed myself and recommend the trip
The fountain show, Trianon's, & Marie Antoinette's village were great. Versailles was way too crowded! Our guide was excellent. Lunch was wonderful. We had plenty of time to tour as well as some free time for shopping.
information given, time taken, comfort and respect - all in the excellent category - wonderful experience Skipping the queues is essential.
Visiting Versailles was a good trip to make right before our French Revolution Tour. then we we heard how the ordinary people revolted at the wealth of the monarchy we knew exactly what they were talking about. The gardens were spectacular.
We had trouble locating the tour bus turns out that the bus was leaving from the next block but once we got to Versailles it was the start to an exciting day. The combination of an extremely knowledgeable tour guide and a variety of sights made the day truly memorable - highly highly recommended!
More than a building tour as it is not the original furniture but a recreation of that period... Overall impressive day tour...
Was a very nice tour, the lunch was exceptional for food normally served during a tour. The guide was excellent she was very informative about some details most people wouldn't have mentioned. Highly recommended!
Our guide was really knowledgeable and quite funny, and the afternoon walk through both trianons was fantastic. Visitors should know that there is significant walking on this trip, and if they need motorized transport, they should request in advance.
The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. He provided very in depth knowledge about each part of the tour. The lunch was good and adequate time was given to eat. However, the afternoon walking tour needed a few short breaks. I would recommend telling everyone ahead of time they would be walking for approx. 3 hours and they might want to bring water with them.
Excellent tour. I would warn elderly people and anyone that has difficulty walking distances of up to 6 miles that they will have difficulty visiting all of the locations on this tour. The experience is well worth the time and effort. The buildings and furnishings give an insight into a period of history that otherwise would be lost to the masses. The level of restoration that has taken place is remarkable! You almost expect to see someone in period costume walk into the room. The afternoon visit to the smaller castles on the property is very interesting, especially the king's summer palace. Worth the time and effort if you like history.
The guide that took us around was really excellent and the whole experience was better than I anticipated. We found you on the internet from New Zealand.
We were so pleased we booked the full day instead of the half day. The half day does not have time for Marie Antoinette's palace, the full gardens, and other buildings. You haven't seen Versailles until you've seen it all. It was a magnificent day.
Versailles was definitely worth seeing. The tour went like clock work and we had a very knowledgable and enjoyable tour guide. We went on a Saturday and saw the fountains. I would love to go again.
