Florent lead a wonderful tour. Very knowledgeable and friendly; he made it fun.
Our tour guide was very informative when it came to the palace grounds and the history of the palace and the kings that reigned there. The tour of the grounds and the workings of the fountain and pond system was also a pleasant surprise, and again, her knowledge was most appreciated. The guided "personal" tour was a definite plus compared to using those guided audio tours.
Getting to the front of the line at the time of your tour start time was and added bonus.
In future, whenever we do this sort of travel, guided tours will be a must, it saved hours compared to waiting in line.
Well organized, easy way to get to Versailles with a guide - takes the stress off a non French speaker. Beautiful garden tour and inside the castle. Just long enough! Good size group and tour guide!
We were met promptly at the elephant statue in front of Musee d'Orsay by Adam, an extremely friendly young man who is a Canadian going to school in Paris. He took us to the metro and gave us all tips, suggestions, on how to use the metro and helped us with several other questions. When we arrived at Versailles, he handed us over to Caroline who was going to give us the tour of the Palace, etc. Caroline was an excellent tour guide with a great sense of humour. The Palace and Gardens are spectacular. It was a very hot day and quite crowded but she was able to guide us through the crowds fairly quickly and was able to get us to the front of the line quite adeptly. Caroline was very passionate about the history and it was highly evident. In fact she commented that she "loved" Versailles Palace. She was an excellent tour guide and you would be very fortunate to have her if you went on this tour.
We had a great time and the guide was brilliant. Our experience started very positively with the escort from Central Paris and continued all the way through.
Kind and knowledgable coordinator. Tour guide at Versaille was incredibly knowledgable. Good with the jokes too, Worth it.
we loved it n we will do it again with the same tour guide, she was awesome n cheerful, Merci
We really enjoyed this tour of Versailles. It very well organized and our tour guide was very knowledgable. A wonderful experience. Thank you!
very good service. especially when you don't have to stand in line.
AMAZING!!!!!! Highly recommend. This was an amazing tour, skip the line is needed (as the line is HUGE!) and having a guide was essential to explain the property.
This was a great tour! I don't think visiting Versailles in the summer is probably ever ideal because of the heat and the crowds. However, that's when we were in Paris so that's when we went. By using this tour, we most definitely saw more of the gardens and the palace than we'd have bothered with (considering the crowds). Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic... he made the tour a pleasure! Absolutely recommend this tour as it takes navigating your way to and from Paris, and standing in the lineups, out of the equation.
Floren/Flo was great! He really knew a lot and showed us Versaille Gardens in such an interesting way. Once inside the Palace, he continued to be chock full of information. Skipping the line is key as it was tourist season and the line was a couple hundred people deep. If you are going during the height of the tourist season, this is the only way I recommend going into Versaille.
Wow excellent Tour! It was the first of five tours we had lined up for us (2 adults and 3 children) and our faviolurite. All five of us loved it. I think our guide had alot to do with the experience...she was fluent in English, very knowledgeable, experienced and friendly. We throughly enjoyed it.
