Veja o Palácio de Versalhes (Château de Versailles) como os reis franceses viram um dia – com essa excursão para grupos pequenos que inclui uma vista privada única dos Quartos Reais do palácio. Essa exclusiva excursão dá a você entrada prioritária para o Versalhes por meio de uma porta reservada e permite o acesso sem precedentes aos magníficos cômodos privados – como a biblioteca de Luis XVI – que normalmente está fora dos limites para o público geral, permitindo que você veja um lado do Palácio de Versalhes listado como patrimônio mundial pela UNESCO que a maioria nunca viu.
Essa experiência VIP também inclui uma excursão de dois cômodos no State Apartments e a famosa Galeria de Espelho assim que o local abre, antes da multidão chegar. Seu ingresso de entrada prioritária permite que você entre direto no palácio com seu grupo pequeno (máximo 16 pessoas), evitando a maioria do público nesses cômodos.
Privilégio de uma visita comentada, acesso exclusivo a alguns aposentos, sem se envolver com o grande número de visitantes... valeu muito essa visita. Depois nos deixam livres para conhecer um pouco mais desse lugar encantador
Wow! Well worth the extra price for this in just skipping the line alone! Much less the fact that the tour of the private quarters gets you out of the crush of tourists to be able to enjoy and appreciate the palace. Very knowledgeable guide who took exceptional care of us!
The tour was very good. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and you do not have to wait in line. When we were there, the crowds were crazy, so skipping the lines was a big plus. A few tips if you choose to take this tour: 1. Eat before you go - all they serve is a croissant, coffee1 cup and juice. We felt it was a waste of time and was not a positive addition. 2. The fountains were not running when we were there - the fountain show starts at 3:30 but the tour boards the bus at 3pm. That was very upsetting - because part of this package states that the fountain/music tickets are included. Honestly - I would choose a different, less expensive tour - this one was not worth the price for what we were able to see.
The tour was lovely. The tour guide was awesome. I personally got really sick when we got to this tour so I didn't get to fully enjoy it and we had some rude people that wrecked the beginning part of the tour for us not the tour's fault...and actually the guide was quite nice to them. Versatile was a dream...just wish my body would have cooperated.
To start off our morning, due to Bastille Day coming up the road where we were supposed to meet up was closed down by police for preparations. I understand this is out of Viator's control, however, we were only given a phone number to Versailles palace in case of emergency, not a Viator rep. We spent 30 minutes walking up and down streets trying to find the marked van. We eventually found an unmarked van and workers who did not have any badge or anything showing Viator. Our group size was over the 16 people limit stated in the description. We got to the palace at 8:45 a.m. where we were supposed to be able to immediately enter and have breakfast at this renowned restaurant. The door to the restaurant was locked, of course, because they don't actually open until 9 a.m. which is when we were let in. The so called breakfast was a dry croissant and a cup of coffee, from which the people in our group only had time to take a couple of sips and bites before we had to insist on our guide taking us on because the HUGE line out front was already being let in. So much for early access. By the time we actually entered, it was beyond packed with people, 2 people in our group actually got lost in the crowd. We were NOT able to see the chapel, the opera house, or the Musical Gardens show as stated because of Versailles's hosting some event, the description says this is a rare event, but I wouldn't count on being able to view these things. The actual tour guide was pleasant and knowledgable. After the guided tour, we were supposed to have access to the gardens included in our tickets. However, every person in our group was initially denied access. We had to argue and ask to speak with a supervisor. Some in our group weren't granted access at all, so they were left to sit at the front of the palace, with no rep around to provide assistance. Our Viator rep that rode with us/walked us to the gate gave us incorrect information all day and was no where to be found when needed. For instance, she told us the walk from the palace to Petit Trianon was a short 15 minute walk when in actuality it is a mile and a half away. The Orangerie, which was one of the major things we wanted to see, only 2nd to the Hall of Mirrors, was closed off.
Versailles palace itself is beautiful. Do yourself a favor, don't spend so much money on this tour, get there super early by 7:30 or 8 to be at the front of the line and rent the golf cart available in the garden to save the miles of walking.
This tour was supposed to be the highlight of our time in Paris but turned out to be a major let down.
Great tour for the money. They allow a lot of free time but its not nearly enough given the size of this place! not their fault though, the tour was great as was the Palace. The breakfast was a bit of a joke as it was really just coffee - but outside of that we were very satisfied.
This was so much more than I was expecting, and I expected a lot! Everyone told us not to bother with Versailles because the crowds were unbelievable. This is true, but this VIP tour removed the crowd problem so you can just enjoy the AMAZING palace.
I would highly suggest this tour especially if you want a very extensive, private tour. Comfortably transferred to Versailles in a van with guide. You are met at Versailles by an museum employee that gives an incredible tour of places not visited by the regular ticket, PLUS you skipped that line which was HUGE advantage. The only thing I would mention was the personal Versailles guide did not wait long enough at some palace places to take pictures....it was a fast paced but indepth. At least an hour with a personal guide in the private apartments and palace. We then had enough time to rent the electric cars outside the palace and travel the grounds comfortably. It is ACRES and ACRES so if you would like to see the other palace buildings on the other side of the grounds, I would suggest this extra option because walking would take hours to and fro.
This tour was a wonderful way to see Versailles. We had plenty of time to see the palace and also all the gardens, fountains and The Trianon Estate. Our guide shared so much interesting history with us and the transportation was very convenient. It was so nice seeing parts of the palace not open to everyone and not packed full of other tourists.
The tour was excellent - our guide (in period dress no less) was excellent, very informative and entertaining. The tour of the palace itself was great and the palace guide timed it perfectly so that we were often the only group in the area - nice when there's only ten people in the Hall of Mirrors. Definitly good value for money. The instructions for pick up were easy to follow and the booking process was smooth and trouble free. Thanks for a great day.
