Fantastic guide and we enjoyed the entire experience!
Tour guide was great! She was fun, energetic and very knowledgeable. She made sure everyone in the group could see and hear throughout the tour it was very crowded. and she even waited for my daughter and I when we our train was delayed.
Doing what: Skip the Line: Versailles Full-Day Tour
This tour was great from beginning to end. The trip in the bus to Versailles was easy and we immediately stepped into a coffee shop for coffee and croissants. They even had hot chocolate for my 11 year old son. Then it was off to Versailles. Our tour guide from Versailles, Ann, kept us moving and provided just the right amount of information. She took us to places that others not in a guided tour didn't get to go to. We didn't have to wait in lines either. After the tour, we had a few hours to roam the beautiful gardens and have a nice lunch. This tour was worth the cost in terms of what we were able to see, the great guides and no lines. I highly recommend the tour. It was one of the highlights of our vacation.
Great tour! We were a small group of six so it was even better. We had a nice driver/guide who brought us to Versailles and turned us over to a really wonderful guide who shared his knowledge of the palace and France's history with us.
great tour and the guide we had was fantastic, she really did love the place and made the tour very enjoyable
This tour was fabulous -- being able to see many rooms that are not open to the general public royal quarters, the opera, the chapel -- which can only be seen by the general public from behind a rope, while we were able to walk thru the chapel, up to the altar, etc. My only complaint was that it wasn't long enough -- I'd have liked to spent the entire day there, versus only a half day.
Such a treat to be picked up outside of our apartment and escorted right to Versailles. Our guide was incredibly informed and brought our visit to a higher level. My only issue is the half day tour doesn't allow enough time to visit Maria Antoinette's apartment so check beforehand exactly what your tour will include.
The guide was absolutely great, he was on time and took time during the excursion to explain everything, after the palace he took us down to park at the bottom, he was extremely well educated in his knowledge of the Bourbons and the French aristocracies and their extravagant way of lifestyle, the tour of the American exhibitions was great but a little too quick. Glad I made the booking through this web site and have strongly recommended it through another site. It was great to get through all the crowds, the tour was made simple, but the gardens should have been included in the price!
This was worth every penny to skip the lines (which were enormous!) and have a small group tour with a docent who knew everything about Versailles! Highly recommend!
Clothilde was an excellent guide...she was humorous, knowledgeable, fiercely protective of the group's space to ensure all of us had good views of the exhibits. The tour is a bit short as it does not cover the Queen's apartment and Trianon. The group size was at the maximum 30 people but Clothilde ensured that all questions were answered.
Great tour with knowledgeable guides. First rate.
Our tour guides were great. We had one who gave us a tour of the city of Versailles and the outside grounds of the palace. Our other, Francesca, was AMAZING inside. She was super knowledgeable and she kept our three small children entertained as well. If you can get her as a guide you'll be very pleased.
ABSOLUTELY WORTH EVERY PENNY. SAVED US OVER TWO HOURS IN HOT SUN IN LINE. WE WERE ESCORTED RIGHT IN AND HAD THE BEST SPOT IN EVERY CROWDED ROOM. GUIDE WAS TOP NOTCH. PALACE AND GARDENS ARE A MUST SEE.DON'T MISS THIS TOUR OR THE CHARMING TOWN OF VERSAILLES.
Gorgeous night of fountains, bubbles, fire fountains, mists and classical music amongst countless flowers and tall mysterious trees. Definitely do this if you can!
This is a magical experience. To see the fountains play is to enjoy one of the wonders of the world. I would recommend any visitor to make this the centre of their trip to Versailles. Sensational!
Paulina our guide was excellent and did her best to keep us together during the tour in a very busy Versailles. The 90 minute your was very informative and a great introduction before we went off on our own to explore. Would definitely recommend as we missed the long lines!
Doing what: Skip-the-line Versailles Classic
Great experience! Our guide, Gustabo, I think that was his name was very informative and made the visit to Versailles really come alive! The fact that we didn't need to find transportation and stand in line for tickets was great.
Pricey, but worth it. Advice: take the morning tour - you will be one of the first people in the palace and you can enjoy the Hall of Mirrors without huge crowds. Then, you can skip the pick up at 2:30 and spend the whole day exploring the HUGE property. There is a train back or ask your guide.
