Amazing and so concise!
Was a bit unorganised to begin with, but the guide was terrific and we saw everything despite the heavy crowd traffic.
Amazing. Just amazing. Guide was very cute, personable, and knowledgeable. But the palace was just incredible.
It was great. Can really understand the need to be able to skip the line. Our guide was very knowledgable and I learned so much from her. Thankyou
It suddenly rained while we were on the tour. We were lucky there were guys selling umbrellas. The tour guide was funny and informative. It was worth the money.
Excellent tour, very enjoyable. The guide pick-up was right across the street from the train station. Our tour-guide lady, Aurora, was very knowledgeable and professional. This is the best choice for visiting Versailles Chateau within 3 hours. Highly recommended.
Worth every penny. Our guide was amazing and very knowledgeable. This is the best way to see the palace. A must for people with a short time in Paris.
The tour was very informative and interesting. Our guide was friendly and helpful. The tour itself was well organised and the group not too big. Thanks
The tour guide did an excellent job explaining the historic context but still keeping it light enough so even those that are not interested in history are entertained. Here tip # 1. DO NOT GO ON SUNDAY OR TUESDAY - Versailles is incredibly crowded on any day of the week but especially on those two. Sunday because the fountains are running - oddly enough they turn them off the rest of the week. And Tuesday because the museums in Paris are closed so every tourist goes to Versailles. Tip # 2. DO NOT GO WITHOUT A GUIDE HAVING A RESERVATION. Spend the extra money for a guided tour with reservations - the line to get into Versailles can easily be two to three hours in the hot sun ( no shade).
Lovely engaging and informative guide and a truly remarkable place to visit. A guided tour is a must to get the best of Versailles. A real highlight of our time in Paris. What a beautiful place and having the guide in a small group allows you to get a real sense of what took place there and where you are. Brilliant. Also, my wife had her passport stolen the night we arrived in Paris. Next day we had this tour booked. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and kindly moved the booking for us. Very grateful under the circumstances.
Another great tour offered by Viator. Tour Guide again very knowledgeable, very easy to find the tour office (which was a bonus) Again had to wait a little while for tickets to the Palace to be purchased (about 10 to 15 minutes) While we were viewing the gardens someone should have been off getting our tickets from the group gate. Our guide had a list of names so knew who was supposed to be with us so the tickets should have been purchased from the list and if people did not turn it is their issue. As it was we had to still wait for late comers anyway. (about 10 to 15 minutes)
I feel if I have purchased my tickets in advance they should be pre-purchased prior to us going on the tour, however it was an excellent tour
Skipping the long line is awesome and historical guide is professional. I only wish we had more time.

Outstanding trip. The guide pick-up was right across the street from the train station. Our guide Anis, was outstanding. This is the only way to do it...you need a guide, otherwise the lines to get in are very long and you miss the explanation of what you are seeing. Well worth the train ride! Don't miss this!
