Why Travelers Choose This Tour
Get the best of both worlds with a mix of free time and a guided visit.
We had a van take us to a location right in front of the palace. The driver arrived promptly at the selected time at our hotel. It was a 45 minute drive. Our tour guide Sofie, was excellent and knew everything about the palace, its architecture, the royals who lived there, the surrounding environs, the gardens, etc. She made the palace come alive for us.
At 2 pm, the driver met us at the drop off location and took us directly back to the hotel. It was a wonderful day.
The tour was well planned and very informative about Versailles. We were able to see the palace even though there were a lot of other people there. The transpiration to and from teh palace was excellent.
Our driver was early and whisked is to Versailles while we chatted with the other passengers. Our tour guide was fantastic and spoke great English and was very knowledgeable. We learned a lot that’s for sure! We had lunch at Angelina (not included but we knew that). Food is excellent. Toured the gardens for the afternoon. Our return driver was a few minutes late but expected with Paris traffic. It was very nice if a lot more expensive to have the door to door service. My wife and I really enjoyed that.

The driver picked us up at our hotel right on time and was waiting for us at the conclusion of the tour. Our tour guide was very well informed. Some of the earpieces were not working well and there were not enough replacements. Consequently, a couple of people in our group had to go without. Overall it was a great experience.
I can't say enough about our tour, they picked us up at our hotel as promised, comfortable ride out to Versailles where we were met by the tour guide, she was knowledgeable, her English was a little hard to understand, but then again she was competing to be heard over the roaring crowd which was not her fault. The driver picked us up at the designated time. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
Absolutely beautiful castle and well worth the ride. I was picked up on time at my hotel, provided sight seeing information during the ride.. Met by guide who took us through the castle. Then had ample time to roam the gardens. Pick up back to the city on time dropped off at hotel. Great sight seeing adventure
Pick-up was on time (actually a bit early) and was very kind. The ride was comfortable, and we were able to skip the line which was a huge plus! Our tour guide was amazing. Could not recommend this tour more.
We were rushed through and there were parts of the palace we never saw. Our guide was knowledgeable but it felt like she was in a hurry to get through. She had to be asked questions about the significance of the paintings which she explained very fully but had we not asked we would have been lost. Our driver was excellent but we were parked a long way from the palace gates.
