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.
Great tour! Organized. Knowledgeable guide. Would definitely recommend this tour!
I took the afternoon 1400 option from Paris. Met at the front of the Musee D'orsay. As a group we took the train to Versailles which was about 1/2 hr. A well paced guided tour with a local guide. There was free time after the tour if you wanted to stay back, and the return train ticket had no time limit.
Our guide,Martina, was fabulous! It was a very crowded day but she guided us in the gardens away from the masses of humanity. At the palace, she gave us information before entering each room as the tourist were shoulder to shoulder. You have star in, Martina, and I hope I spelled her name correctly.
The Versailles Palace and Gardens walking tour was a fantastic tour. The trip to Versailles could be confusing to those who have not taken the Paris metro and do not know their way around. To help, the tour actually starts in Paris and the tour guides take you to Versailles on the metro. This is important: You do NOT need to buy any metro tickets in preparation for your tour to Versailles. The tour will provide them for you. We made the mistake of purchasing them ahead of time and ended up spending more money than we needed to. Once at Versailles, you will get another tour guide who will guide you through the palace and gardens. She was fantastic and gave us all of the time we needed to walk around the grounds. Our tour was very small - only 5 people so it was very personable and customized to our liking. I highly recommend this tour.
Great tour and great guides. Were able to see the fountain show due to perfect timing buy our guide Catherine.
I would highly recommend this to work for people who would like to tour the Versailles Palace. The guide was excellent and it really enhanced our visit to Versailles.
Katerin was excellent and knew her history. The tour gave us a good overnew of the palace.
Absolutely everything we wanted. We were taken care of in spite of the "protests" in the city and kept safe without affecting the enjoyment of the tour. Very well done both in Paris and especially the tour guide in Versailles. She was wonderful and made the experience very interesting!
