This was by far the worst of our tours that we booked in Paris. Our driver/guide was prompt in picking us up and provided good commentary on the many rooms of Versailles and the grounds. The issues were that we did not in fact receive the skip the line option that was promised. We had the same skip the line option for the Louvre, and Eiffel Tower, and they were wonderful. At Versailles we waited in a long line in the bitter cold before we could enter. Once inside the building we were so crowded we could hardly move. The thick crowd, bent on taking pictures of everything, just kind of pushed you out of the way to get what they wanted. It was very frustrating. This is of course was no fault of the guide. He did his best to provide information on what we were viewing, but it was hard to concentrate while being jostled by the crowd who was so interested in taking photos of everything that I do not believe they were really even seeing or appreciating what was in front of them. Very sad. Our guide said that there was a huge influx of tourist due to it being Chinese New Year, and local school holiday. Overall I was disappointed with what I thought would be one of the highlights of our trip.
