If you have limited time available and want to see the highlights this is the tour for you. If you want free time and to see more detail I'd book a whole day tour or make your own way there. For us this was perfect. Our guide was fantastic and he gave us a very detailed guided tour of the palace itself which was no mean feat considering how packed it was. While it would have been nice to spend more time there it was time we simply didn't have. This tour showed us everything it could in the time available.
Our tour guide was excellent! She deftly guided us through heavily crowded locations, and made sure we received all of the information. Her story telling is first rate - she left us feeling as though we knew the historical figures. The bus was comfortable and the driver was excellent.
Highly recommend this tour, Lucille was informative and a great guide.
Totally worth it. Just sit back, have the wonderful guide give you all the info as you are driven in a small open coach with just a small group to the trianon and palace. Skip the line and inside guided tour. Our guide was so great, and it was just the right length didn't suck up the entire day!
Excellent guide helped us navigate Versailles through crowds, always trying to find cooler, less crowded places to gather and give us lessons. Great day!

Our awesome guide on this tour remains one of our highlights from the entire trip. The van ride from Paris to Versailles was clean and comfortable, and Keith was awesome as both a driver and a guide. He gave us a good balance of time to explore on our own and guided tour time, and was kind enough to drop everyone off near their final destinations rather than back at the tour's origin. In Versailles Palace where pushy tourists are elbow to elbow, having a tour guide that is aggressive and knowledgeable makes all of the difference.
It Was masterfully narrated by our tour guide and sprinkled with laughter by our bus driver.
I enjoyed every minute.
Tour was very good and the guide was interesting and knowledgeable. The time in the gardens could have been longer but overall it was very good.
Really enjoyed this trip. No one can prepare you for the splendor that awaits you at Versailles! Putting the history and physical location together gives you a greater perspective than you could otherwise obtain. After being there, I can truly say, I get it. Gwendolyn was a great tour guide because of her deep history and familiarity of all the rooms of Versailles. Also, her strategic placement of the van in relation to the sites visited was a plus. Make no mistake, tour requires a commitment to walking, but would have been more miserable if we had to trek back to the van.
We had an incident with our bus not being allowed to drive into a certain areano fault of tour and the guide and driver handled it perfectly. I would highly recommend it.
The tour was good but rushed. Would recommend the full day for Versailles. Purely because there is so much to do and see! Do spend some time in the gardens. It is the most beautiful part of the palace
Best tour guide I've ever had. She really made us feel like she loved the Palace. The combo tour was also great and some fantastic gems we would never have known about had we not gone to the Petit Trianon.

The tour was a lot of fun. Our guide, Me'eva, I think, was so much fun. It was a great introduction to Versailles. We hope to go again on our own, so we can spend more time. A half day tour is just not sufficient to take in everything the Palace had to offer and learn about.
This tour was awesome, but even better, our Tour Guide was awesome! She was energetic and friendly, and even though I was traveling solo, she always made sure I felt included in the group. We even got free time at the end to go to cafes and explore the gardens towards the end of the tour! I highly recommend this tour!
Simply amazing... Not only was our guide knowledgable.... She was hilarious!!!
It was a great tour. The guide was nice and explained all about Versailles. I do recommend it.
I've been to Versailles with a large tour group and it was ok. This time with the private guide the tour was completely different. Well worth the extra cost and the guide was the best! Loved it.
