Excellent experience!
Stephanie_G, Sep. 2021
Fabulous tour! Our guide, Sylvanie, was incredibly knowledgeable, funny and professional. She never rushed our small group of 12 through any part of the tour and answered all our inquisitive questions. Highly recommend taking this skip the line guided tour and if you can, ask for Sylvanie!
Superb Tour.

A nice walk through The Palace of Versailles

Very knowledgeable guide who was able to show the palace and the gardens with detail. Very enjoyable and group size was very good for managing expectations.
This was an awesome tour

Herve was an excellent guide. He was informative, engaging and fun to be with. I would highly recommend this tour. We would not have been able to understand all the history without a tour.
Loved it!

We really enjoyed this tour, found it to be a great way to see some of the highlights of Versailles. This place was really big and it’s impossible to see it all but although we only hit some of the highlights, having a guide made a huge difference. Our tour guide Quentin,, was great at telling stories and proving historical context, which made for a very memorable experience. . He also took time to answer questions. At the end we had plenty of time to wander and explore on our own.
Tremendous Trip w Christina

Amazing tour!!
Thai C, Sep. 2019
The experience was organised, informative and interactive. The group was not too large and it suited our 4 year old daughter. Highly recommended to anyone considering on going, especially to avoid the long queues.
The only way to see Versailles
Robert B, Aug. 2019
We took the tour with a group of about 20 others. The guide did a wonderful job of keeping the group together and providing details of the Palace and the grounds which were interesting and informative. This tour is well planned and executed and provides a level of detail which a basic audio tour could not compare with. There is a great deal of walking and it can be taxing but well worth it if you are comfortable with the amount of walking. Our guide was wonderful, thank you.

Great introduction to Versailles
Lucy_P, May 2019
We had a great tour guide, Ingrid, who was very welcoming and informative. I think guided tours add so much more to the experience- we had an overview of the french history, royal family and traditions. It was just about the right detail and time. It was raining on the day we went so Ingrid adapted the tour to an extended indoor version, although we could still go into the gardens. I nice amount of waking. I would recommend for sure the skip the line aspect as the queue was huge!
