Outstanding Versailles tour.
Dennis_M, Oct. 2021
It is hard to single out one thing, Versailles is an amazing place. It was made more so by our guide, Sylvie. She is exceptionally knowledgable and had stories that made the visit more memorable. Highly recommend her. In addition, my wife and I appreciated the arrangements Viator made for the ride back to our hotel. Another outstanding employee of Viator. Definately enjoyed talking PSG and football in general on the way back to the hotel.
Personalized and fascinating experience
Thomas_S, Oct. 2021
Our guide Verana really made the experience special. We covered a lot of territory: the palace, grounds and Trianon. Her knowledge of Versailles, and the people and politics that created it, was fascinating. This experience is highly recommended.

Great private tour!

Sylvie our guide was the best! She was funny and full of history. She went at our pace and really gave us the stuff we were interested in. Plus she knows the grounds very well! You could get lost on those paths if you don’t know your way around! It was a great visit :)
Excellent Tour!

Sylvie was an outstanding tour guide and made my wife and I’s trip to Versailles a wonderful experience. She was incredibly knowledgable and showed us the entire grounds at Versailles, not just the palace. Our tour ran slightly over the allotted time and she happily finished the tour and made sure we saw everything we wanted to see. In addition to being well-versed in the history of the palace, she was also considerate and always made time for restroom breaks and even short meals. Sylvie clearly has a great personal interest in the palace and its preservation and does not just recite canned facts from a prepared script or outline. Instead, she focuses on her visitors and makes sure to expand upon topics that interest them, in addition to providing a comprehensive history of the grounds. She also speaks excellent English! This tour was a delight and we could not recommend her tours highly enough! I would particularly recommend to people who want a more personalized experience (vs being in a large group) and to people with a deep interest/prior education in European history, although her tour was certainly appropriate and accessible for all.
The best tour we had in France!

Iuliana was the best tour guide we had in all of Paris. It was obvious she loves what she does. So many amazing details. We had an unforgettable experience at Versailles.

Awesome tour! Our tour guide, Helga, was very professional, informative and accommodating. She even took good pictures of us.

Dear @kyasi93, Thank you for your kind review on your tour with our guide Helga! It is great to hear that you enjoyed your private tour! We will be happy to hear from you back once you travel to Europe! Best regards,
Outstanding tour, after a transportation mixup
Matthew_S, Dec. 2019
Our guide, Enis, was among the very best ever. She quickly developed a wonderful rapport with our daughters and was very knowledgeable about the palace, grounds, and French history. We did have an issue with our hotel pickup - our driver was about 30 minutes late - but otherwise an easy and memorable experience. Thank you!
Response from Host, Dec. 2019
Ines is truly a great guide and one of the best! We are very happy you had a memorable experience with us. Rest assure we have dealt with the pick-up mix up internally and took the necessary steps for this to never happen again to any of our clients as this doesn't reflect the experience & service we strive to provide. We truly hope you enjoyed your remaining days in Paris and wish you safe travels back home! See you again soon! Best regards, Simon
Todo perfecto
