Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This value combo includes transportation and skip-the-line access to Versailles and the Eiffel Tower. 
Meet your driver at your Paris hotel and soak up the scenery on the journey to the Palace of Versailles. On arrival, use your skip-the-line ticket to jump the queues and set off on your guided tour or audio tour (depending on option selected).

Learn about the fascinating history of the UNESCO-listed palace, home to royals like Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, and an important setting for the French Revolution, as you stroll the grand halls and peek into the royal chambers. Admire the opulent Queen’s Bedroom, the famous Hall of Mirrors and the Grand Apartments. Then, wander around the beautiful Versailles Palace Gardens (if option selected) and stop to enjoy the spectacular musical fountain show (March-October: Tues, Sat & Sun only).

Meet your driver after your tour of Versailles and travel back to Paris, where you’ll be dropped off at the Eiffel Tower. Armed with your skip-the-line ticket, head straight inside and ride the high-speed elevator up to the 2nd floor. Then, look out over Paris from the 380 foot (160 meter) high second-floor observation deck and spot top attractions like the Louvre, the Arc-de-Triomphe, and Notre Dame Cathedral. While you’re there, perhaps opt to visit the summit (extra cost).

If you’ve chosen the River Cruise option, head down to the waterfront and set sail on the final adventure of the day – a romantic cruise along the Seine.

Please note: This is not a fully guided tour. Your guide will pick you up from your hotel or residence in Paris, escort you to Versailles Palace and pick you up for your transfer to the Eiffel Tower around noon. Your visit to the Eiffel Tower will be in mid-afternoon.

Good way to see three "must sees" in Paris
, Jun 2019
This tour gets you into three separate venues without having to wait in line. The visits are unguided, but not having to wait in line is terrific. Unfortunately, they were an hour and forty minutes late picking us up and were late again collecting us at the second venue. Still, not waiting in line at Versailles and the Eiffel Tower is the only way to go.
This could have been so much better.

Our drive didn't speak enough English to be helpful. It was hot and bottled water would have been a nice extra without much effort. the "skip the line" part was deceiving! We did skip the really long lines but we stood in line for over an hour to get in. The Eiffel Tower tour was not a tour. We had a guide take us to the line and then LEAVE! We thought we were going to have a guide take us up to the lookout level and explain the history of the Eiffel Tower and give us some guidance. There were other tours who had guides with them and they got the royal treatment. Do NOT DO THIS TOUR. Shop. Get the better tour!!
NOT an actual tour company! Failure.

NOT a tour co. just a bunch of guys who bought some tickets online. 1.5 late, missed tours. Failure.
Minimal communication from the tour company
, Apr 2019
We had not been notified of the hotel pick up time until the evening prior to the day of the tour. The driver picked us up promptly in the morning and we were surprised that we shared the car with another couple. No issues there as we got on very well with the couple. When we got to the palace of Versailles, we waited for 90 minutes before the tour commenced. The reasons given were that another group was having breakfast and we were waiting for another family of 4 to arrive as they got caught in traffic. The palace of Versailles is a popular tourist attraction and the crowds over Easter were understandable. The tour guide unfortunately lack the knowledge of navigating the tour comfortably through crowds compared to other guides. Lastly, we returned to Paris city at 3 pm and was dropped off at the Champs-Elysses area. What was disappointing was the Eiffel Tower tour then commenced at 10.30 pm in the evening. This tour was booked in Sep 2018 and the tour company had ample of time to secure the Eiffel Tower tickets early for a reasonable time slot. The excuse that it is the Easter weekend is not acceptable. We have never reviewed a Viator booking this bad before but unfortunately, this experience was poor and we would not recommend this tour company.
Tours of Versailles and the Eiffel Tower

Our experience from the site to the plan to the tours as well as our guides all exceeded our expectations. Our guides were very knowledgeable, truly enjoyed sharing their insights with us, let me practice my French as they responded in English. Being able to skip the lines made the day even more enjoyable. Matthew at Versailles and Ida at the Tour Eiffel were excellent and represented your company and France well. We can’t wait to return... Merci!!!

The tour at the Palace of Versailles with our guide Mathew was wonderful, but we arrived 1!/2 hours early and had to wait around. Then we went to the Eiffel Tower. The family that was grouped with us in the van had a timed entrance 1 hour ahead of us. So again we had to wait. After 2 hours we finally got to go. I felt that we bought these skip the line packages to save time and frustration, but this was not the case.
Excellent trip. Would recommend if...

Excellent trip. Would recommend if you don't have transport to Versailles. Being picked up from Hotel was great and the guides were all attentive, well versed and made the trip enjoyable. For January it was a good combination but if you want more time in the Versailles grounds then this would have to be a day trip on it's own.
Not the most organized of tours...

Not the most organized of tours - some of which was the fault of the enormous crowds rather than the tour guide/operator. We met up with another tour group at Versailles and the two guides somehow missed the boat on having tickets ready - or even correct some of the group was staying for the whole day for this skip the line tour. The guide lost a couple in the middle of the tour - although that was probably a function of their photo-op stops as well as the incredible crush of people. The Eiffel Tower part of the tour went a bit more smoothly. Overall, great sites and knowledgeable guides - just hard to battle with the crowds so having the tickets ahead of time would have been of value.

The highlight of our trip to Paris! Thank you for making this a wonderful tour! We also purchased the Seine river cruise and it was breathtaking! Thank you, Aircon - our guide to Versailles and to Mahmoud, our guide to the Eiffel Tower! Two wonderful gentlemen who were very courteous and great tour guides! We could not have asked for a better trip!

We were picked up at our flat in Paris for the ride to Versailles. Our driver was wonderful. Very entertaining and personable. Skipping the long lines is a beautiful thing. Upon arrival we headed directly to the private tour with a small group. Excellent tour with time to explore on our own afterwards. We also avoided the very long line at the Eiffel tower. Well worth the money.
