Amazing, loved the fireworks and fountains show. Perfect evening for seeing the Versailles gardens
Our guide, Gustavo, was amazing. Friendly, knowledgeable, a history major, and gave a very unique perspective on the background of the kings of France and how their time played into French history and culture. The 4 hour tour was perfect if you're just trying to hit the highlights.
The private tour was very good.
Driver on-line and very accommodating.
His inside knowledge made the tour much more educational than the standard walk thru.
Recommend you take the morning tour, as crowds got significantly larger as day progressed.
Well worth the money over the standard tours.
Amazing !! Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. She told us a lot about the monarchy who lived in the palace that we wouldn and #39;t have otherwise known about if we and #39;d chosen to walk through on our own. It was great to skip the line and have a small group for this very interesting tour.

The gardens and fountain tour are a must. We saw them with the music playing...Its definitely not to be missed. The palace tour was ho hum, but the gardens were by far the best part. Late September was beautiful there.
Tour was fantastic. Pickup place looked a little seedy. no water as advertised Private tour is the only way to go. Crowds at the palace are overwhelming and the looks on their faces when our group was escorted through locked doors was priceless. We went to completely empty rooms no tourists
It was an amazing trip and the guide was fantastic. We loved every minute of it.
We had difficulty finding the office, simply because the train station we got off at was the wrong train station. Make sure you stay on until the very last stop on the line, which is Gare de Versailles Château Rive Gauche. DO NOT get off at Gare de Versailles-Chantiers!
After searching for 45 minutes, we found the office right where it should be. Unnecessary stress caused by not looking at the train map well enough.
Fortunately for us, we were able to rebook from the 10:15 am to the 1:15 pm tour. Apparently 5 other families/groups had the same problem as us that day, as the customer service said they had lots of late people who missed the morning tour.
Our guide was Pauline, and she was both funny and very well versed in giving this tour in English. She kept the group moving and had lots of fun stories and anecdotes to go along with her narration. We really enjoyed the tour that she gave. Thanks Pauline, you were extraordinary!
I highly recommend this skip the line tour.

One of the best tours I have been on. Both the tour guide and the local guide were amazing. Loved that we could get into rooms not available to the general public. Easy access to Versailles without the lines. Best way to visit Versailles.
Our tour to Versailles was great. The Palace is beautiful and the grounds too. It was too bad that the Princess's apartment was closed for renovations but otherwise a spectacular tour. A couple issues we had though were that we were supposed to have premier access meaning not have to stand in line. The attendants monitoring the entrance seemed to be unaware of this and initially refused to let us enter without standing in the long line. Finally another attendant showed up and let us have premier access. The other issue was the audio guide equipment didn't work properly and once you are in the tour it's impossible to go back and get another audio guide. Otherwise the tour is highly recommended. Allow 5-6 hours to get through the palace and walk the grounds, so recommend getting there early.
Greats day at Versailles! Rent the golf carts and tour the gardens our other homes in the property! The tour guide got us into areas not accessible to the general public which made it special!
perfect! Just what I expected.
This behind the scenes tour is worth every penny! Got to see parts of the Palace not open to the public. The narration offered by our guide offered unique insight into the history of the Palace as well as it's component parts that really added to the overall experience. Unforgettable.
This is a must see, and tour. Without our guide we would have missed so much. They know where to go, and how to do it, to miss the crowds! And, it is crowded! So very beautiful!
Fabulous experience. Our tour guide April was a wealth of knowledge and made the day both fun and a learning experience. I highly recommend this tour
Great! Tour guide was the greatest.
Very nice, even the driver had a good historical knowledge of versailles.

Private room viewing was wonderful. Being out of the crowd with special access and routes made the visit more enjoyable. Was astonished by by the crowd when we left the tour, so this is the tour to take. Having a private driver from Paris made travel so easy. Lunch in the garden under the canopy of trees was cool, relaxing, and the food was good.
The ticket was a very good value. We took the RER C-I think from right around the corner from our apartment. The train ride was easy and relatively short, and it was pretty easy to find the chateau from the train station. We were very happy that the ticket included audio, because the audio clips in each room made the visit so much more meaningful. The rooms were all very crowded, but it didn't keep us from seeing what we wanted. It was very interesting to see just how 'over the top' every detail of every room was - especially while so much of France was starving. No wonder the final royal couple lost their heads!
