Our guide was very informative. She was happy to answer questions about Versailles or Paris in general. She was very entertaining. A great tour all round. Versailles is absolutely stunning, definitely not to be missed on a trip to Paris

We had the best guide, who gave us a unique, enjoyable and most informative tour, on what was a busy and challenging day. Her knowledge of the gardens and history of the Palace was extensive and she ensured that our whole group had time to appreciate the main features as well as many smaller lesser known facts. A great value tour, especially the "skip the line" element.

Great tour! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and her english was excellent. She had a very entertaining way of presenting the fascinating history of Versailles and the French kings in all of their glory, including the not-so-well-known quirky side of many of them. I would not go on a Tuesday again. We knew it would be busy, but it was the only day we had available. (Versailles is closed on Monday and the Louvre is closed on Tuesday so everyone heads to Versailles on Tuesdays.) The gardens are obviously large enough that there is plenty of space to spread out, but the chateau was absolutely packed with people almost to the point of not being able to move through some areas. But I'm glad we went and we would go again.

So nice not to have to wait in line!
Our guide was so knowledgable and informative. She answered all questions without hesitation.
The only problematic situation was a lack of signage to the meeting point for the tour. It would have been helpful to have someone at the front gate with a sign directing us to where we meet our guide.

Our Versailles trip was perfect, thanks to our tour with Amandine. The small group was a perfect size to make the tour more conversational and personalized. Amandine shared lots of interesting history, as expected, but also shared insights and stories. When we went inside the "chateau," our group would sometimes get split up in the crowds. But Amandine's voice heard clearly through the blue tooth speaker system into our earphones kept us informed and eased us back together in each of the rooms. A really good system! At times, we had to listen carefully to understand her French-accented English, but that was a minor point and far overshadowed by a great tour. I highly recommend this way of seeing Versailles.

This tour was ABSOLUTELY WORTH EVERY PENNY AND MORE!!! Please DO NOT hesitate-it saved us HOURS in line on a very HOT day in July!! I took a picture of the line to show friends back home as I don't think they could imagine it-I bet people were waiting 3+ hours-it was crazy long! However, I have to also admit wondering if I'd wasted money on this "skip the line tour" when I originally booked it--skeptical whether it was really true for actual admission to the Palace or just for purchasing the tickets. Well--they certainly delivered and it was so easy! We met our Guide about a block from the Palace, we were given our passes, Pauline was awesome giving us nice details about the Palace on the short walk over, and she took us right to the entrance and inside. How great was that-just as advertised!! She was a wonderful guide loaded with information and taking a family picture for us in the beautiful gardens. We started there in the gardens and then toured the Palace. I especially enjoyed having a real guide and not just headsets with pre-recorded information. Our tour also included the Fountain Show which was also worth the cost. What a beautiful place-thank you Pauline for making it such a great day! The 2 tours I booked through this company were the best part of our stay in Paris!
