Pauline was very knowledgeable about Versailles and we enjoyed the tour very much. We never could have seen all of the fountains and different parts of the chateau without her expertise and know-how of where to go and when. We saw the chateau, the Hamlet, about half of the fountains, the Petite Trianon, the Grand Trianon, and the Orangerie. We ended up walking 16 miles that day! Couldn't have seen it it all if we didn't skip the line...definitely worth the price. Pauline said the wait can be up to 4 hours on a typical day! Just to get inside!

We had wet weather but it didn't detract from our wonderful tour. Our tour leader Sophie was great and ensured our day was a lovely memorable one. Sophie was very knowledgeable and knew all the best things to see and views of the gardens. You need to be prepared to walk and be on your feet all day but we did not find this strenuous or difficult at all. Probably not advisable for anyone who cannot spend 8 hours on their feet standing and walking.

So worth it! The lines waiting outside we're outrageous. We simply walked right past them. Our guide, Collette, was passionate about this tour and provided so many interesting details that would not be proved without a guide or using an audio guide. It was so crowded which would normally make it difficult to hear our guide. But using the transmitters and earbuds, we had no problem hearing all the information. A long day, but so worthwhile.

No waiting in line even though the palace was crowded. Our guide spoke fluent English. The tour was all day which was relatively grueling but at the same time energizing. Probably the best guided tour I've ever been on and I've been on scores.

The full day tour was excellent, our guide Claire was amazing and very informative. The palace was quite busy but she led us through fairly easily making sure we got to the front in all rooms to admire them. We also got to see both the petite and grand trianons and a lot of the gardens. A fantastic day!

This was an amazing tour and our favorite out of all the ones we took on our 6 week European adventure! The company providing the tour went way above and beyond the call of duty. We managed to get on the wrong train to Versailles and arrived well after our tour was to have started. We knew we had missed the guided tour but hoped, at least, that they would provide us with the tickets. We didn't expect anything else but got so much more :) They put us with Claire for our very own private guided tour! Claire was absolutely fantastic and spent the entire day with just the two of us. She was so pleasant and knowledgeable and we just loved her! She went at our pace and was able to answer every single question we had. By the end of the day it felt like we had known her forever. We saw and experienced the Palace of Versailles, the surrounding gardens, cottages and houses which are absolutely stunning and almost overwhelming in size. It should not be missed if you ever have the chance. She told us so much about Louis XIV and the history of how the palace and grounds evolved over time with each subsequent King Louis. Fascinating! No wonder there was a French Revolution, haha! The opulence contained there is beyond compare. Today it is a national treasure and rightly so!

We had a terrific guide. Take along some good shoes and pray for sunny skies (we dodged the rain for a while and then got a soaking). We all agreed that the full day, small group tour was the best way to go.

I booked for a full day tour in April with skip the line entry in a group of 10 or less. To my surprise no one else had booked for that day and I have a private guided tour of Versailles and the gardens! Guide was amazing!!!

Wow. Great tour. Our guide showed us through the grounds for a tour before joining more people for the Palace tour. Great info and advise for later. The whole place is incredible but the early setup made it so much better for our own explorations later. Walking is good but work out if the 'train' is worth the speed (not fast) and cost (not much once you have done the one way to the outer areas.

Great tour, although crowded at times by others. Could perhaps have included priority tickets on the train rude around the grounds although we walked it. Guide Isabelle, was very good..
