What You Can Expect
We really enjoyed our tour today with Amadine. She was very knowledgeable and we found out some very interesting facts about the palace and gardens. She walked at an excellent pace, and we were able to hear her well with our headsets in the palace. She had a great sense of humor about the death of Louis XIV with what the smell would have been like, and how their lives were so public. The palace is packed with many visitors, but going in the morning you miss some of the lines.
We found out a great deal about the monarchy and the opulence of Versailles. I recommend the tour highly. I also think the 1/2 day was perfect. If you wanted more you could go back to the gardens and Marie Antoinette's palace, or you could choose to call it a day. Nice option.
This tour was not only very affordable, it was ABSOLUTELY necessary when trying to get into the Palace of Versailles. By the time we met our tour guide and were about to enter the group tours entrance, the line for individual entrance was out into the main street thousands of feet long.
Not only that, our tour guide added context and meaning to the gardens and palace that we never would have got on our own. Without a tour guide, this is just a very pretty building. This is the very best half day tour available in Versailles!
The tour was great and the guide was excellent! Highly recommend visiting Versailles!
Skip the line is very helpful! Our guide Natalie was informative and made sure that the group stuck together and had a good view of the artifacts.
tour was excellent
This is one of the highlight tour in Paris you can't miss!. The tour office/ meeting place is very conveniently located in front of the RER C train station in Versailles. We skipped the ticket lines and security checks was fast track. Although i have read about French History, having a knowledgeable and very pretty guide is a plus. thank you very much to our guide Amandine! The place is amazing, but the garden is spectacular!
Great tour, our guide was wonderful and extremely informative, you could ask her a question about the smallest detail and she had an answer. Definitely worth the extra money, there was a 3 hour line that we completely bypassed by doing this tour! Make sure when you're done to go down through the gardens to the canal, there are two cute restaurants there and you can rent boats, enjoy the park, rent a golf cart and see all the grounds - definitely more to do at Versailles than see the house and close gardens.
Excellent tour and very good guide. Our family really enjoyed it.
We were able to skip both the ticket line and the extremely long security line. The guide was great. This was an excellent value.
Despite the rain the line for entry into Versailles was unbelievable. Our small tour group went straight into the garden / palace. It was extremely crowded inside but our tour guide was extremely apt at working the crowd and making room for our group. She was very knowledgeable about the history and customs and we learnt a great deal. If you want to visit Verseille I highly recommend this tour.
Once the tour is finished you can spend all day in the gardens, which would be lovely on a sunny day.
