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!
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.
perfect! Just what I expected.
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!
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.
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.
It was an amazing trip and the guide was fantastic. We loved every minute of it.
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
Guide was well informed and explained all of the highlights of the tour. Well worth the price!
The palace was gorgeous. .the tour guide was ok. Nothing was ever said about Marie Antoinette! ! Felt rushed through the palace. ..Buy tickets yourself and get the audio. .
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour of palace and gardens. The commentary was very informative. Must see in Paris
Guide was very good but suggest allowing more time to visit palace and gardens.
I was VERY disappointed. Skip the line isnt really the case. We had tour guides that didnt seem to know what was going on in the beginning and then we waited in line for at least 45 minutes before walking in. We could have purchased skip the line tickets and went on our own.
Our guide was very abrupt with her explanations. We had to wait more than 30 min in line. I'd try another tour.
I would highly recommend the Skip the Line Tour. Just the fact of being able to skip the line is fantastic when you realise that you could spend hours just waiting in line to get in so it's worth it on that basis alone. Apart from that the tour gave us a really good look at the gardens and the palace itself. We could have stayed on afterwards to explore more of the gardens if we'd chosen to. The guide on the day was brilliant - very informative, funny, kept us moving but not in a way that felt hurried or hassled. Excellent value for money and I highly recommend it.
Doing what: Skip the Line: Versailles Half-Day Tour
Great experience -- I highly recommend the Palace of Versailles Tour with Night Fountain Show!
Loved it. Had a great commentary to and from the site. Versailles was fabulous. It met my expectations.
beautiful place and we were able to walk on our own and explore!
Fascinating, interesting! Tour guide was excellent. The small group and the private viewing of the Royal Quarters made it extra special and easier being away from the crowds. Next time I would stay overnight in Versailles to have more time.
Thank you, your follow up to my booking and our visit to Versailles were faultless!
We knew we would not be able to see everything in one day, so bought a two day passport. This was good value for money. The queue to get into the Palace was very long but moved fairly quickly.
This tour was well worth the additional expense. We saw numerous rooms that were otherwise not available to tourists. Our group of 16 were the only ones in these rooms when visiting them, making the tour live up to the private tour advertising a highly significant advantage in such a popular attraction. The docent who led the tour was remarkably knowledgeable about French history, able to answer questions about the intricacies of the French monarchy and society. The tour of the chateau began with gaining admission through a side door and away from the masses congregated at the gates. Following the tour, we enjoyed the gardens and, especially, the fountain displays coordinated with classical music. Be certain to select the day you go carefully if you wish to witness those displays, since they are offered only select days during the week. This was one of the best things we did during our Paris trip, even if it was the most expensive. It was a great value.
