Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Viator VIP: Palace of Versailles Small-Group Tour with Private Viewing of the Royal Quarters. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Steff, our guide, was also on top of everything and and an endless source of information. Vy well-organized and if you're going to Versailles the private tour is the ONLY way to go. Full marks once again!
other than minor logistics at pick due to Tour de France, we highly recommend this tour and experience. We were spared long frustrating lines, it was exciting to view special rooms without the crowds. Excellent tour guides.
This tour was AWESOME! Stephanie (Viator tour coordinator) was wonderful as well as our Versailles tour guide (can't remember his name). ALOT to see - if you have the option and ability to take alternate transportation back to Paris so that you can stay to see everything, do it. We arrived shortly after 9:00 am and the tour van left at 1:30pm ... not quite enough to see everything. But, if you decide that you want to leave at 1:30, the tour still packs in enough to get a reallly good tour of the location and gardens. My only drawback, is for this amount of money, they really should pick you up at your hotel, like the less expensive Louvre tour did.
Excellent tour and guide. Well worth it and you see a lot of extra rooms and the line of others is Soooo long.
Rent the golf cart through the gardens.
Can not say enough about STEPH, she had a lot of info and very knowledgable
AWESOME - AMAZING - UNFORGETTABLE ! just some of the words that attempt to describe this experience.
tour guide was amazing. Stephanie should write a book about French history. She was so entertaining. She was the best guide our family ever had. My teenage girls loved her also.
This is the best carefree way to go! Just show up at the bus and have fun listening to the stories. The Guided Tours of Versailles are the way to get to see rooms where the public is not admitted and tips on times to see the music coordinated with fountains just like the royals did!
AWESOME TOUR! highly recommended - we got to see a lot of behind the scenes places and also skip the line which is HIGHLY WORTH IT. Hall of Mirrors along with the gardens were my favorite highlights. this tour even though expensive is worth it though, so much to see that one can easily get lost.
The best. Stephanie our guide via the bus ride was so informational and entertaining. She know how to work the information into a story that you will enjoy hearing. When touring the gardens, highly recommend renting a golf cart.
Step was a very passionate guide who knew her historical facts well. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour and was well worth the money spent. Cannot recommend Viator Tours enough. We have been using them for over ten years and so far have not been disappointed once.
Absolute delight. Super fun, very informative. Stephanie talks about French kings as if she personally met and knew them. History really does come alive on this day. Loved it!
Best tour and am sooooo glad we did this VIP tour..The crowds afterwards was rediculous and would never be as enjoyable as the VIP tour we had..Well worth paying the extra money to see more than the public and having the whole tour limited to only 20 people. It was crazy the crowds afterwards once our tour was over. Would highly recommend this VIP tour. You won't be disapointed
