This was an excellent tour led by Adam, who is hilarious, engaging and informative. He is clearly an expert on Versailles and, more importantly, an expert at leading tours at Versailles. We arrived at 10:15am and easily found the tour group by the King Louis statue. From the meeting point, Adam took us to the group skip the line entrance - however - and this is the only reason this skip the line tour is a 4 stars and not a 5 stars - we still had to wait packed in like sardines at the skip the line group entrance for 30 minutes or so. It is not for the claustrophobic, but if you are claustrophobic, you probably could step away and not be so packed in while waiting. While waiting, Adam made sure to keep us engaged through our headsets with the story of Versailles and the French Revolution. Once inside, we were able to stop and use the restroom before officially beginning the tour inside the palace. The palace is BEAUTIFUL - definitely a must see - and Adam once again knew exactly how to keep our group moving through the crowd and knew the spots in the rooms to stop and tell us about the palace.
Following the tour, we were led outside to the gardens. The only other reason this is a 4 instead of a 5 is that we blew past the gift shop at the end of the tour - which is on the INSIDE of the palace - and we could not get back in to go to the gift shop after Adam ended the tour outside. He really should have included time in the gift shop inside because the gift shop outside the bookstore is not good for gifts - it's pretty much actual books and more expensive items.
Gardens: We splurged and rented a golf cart to help speed up our tour of the gardens, which we think was very much worth it after being on our feet for 3 hours. The gardens are massive and we wanted to make sure to get to Marie Antoinette's Village - which is under construction, so you can't go inside the buildings, but you can still walk around and experience the village and animals. We ended up needing more than the allotted first hour for the golf cart, so it did end up being more expensive than we planned we needed at least 90 minutes with the golf cart in the gardens.
This was one of the highlights of our trip. I expected a boring tour of a pretty palace, but our guide, Adam, was phenomenal! He brought the history to life with great color commentary. He knew what to showcase, and the best spots to view. He was very efficient in moving a large group though heavy crowds and was extremely personable and knowledgeable. If the weather had been better, I could have spent an entire day in just the gardens. Beautiful! Great tour!
Tour operator was wonderful, they were right on time, loved how we all had earphones that hung around our neck. The only problem is we went to see the fountains and tour was at 3:15 and still not done, so had to leave the tour to get outside to rent the golf carts
Dreadful organisation. We arrived on time - the tour started late on a cold day. We could not get entry to the Palace as a result of a booking error by head office.This was eventually corrected and we gained entry at 11.30 instead of the planned 9.30.By this time the palace was crowded and difficult to enjoy. We abandoned our tour half way through
Do not use this tour group. This was wait in a longer line, not skip the line.
Our guide was good and very informative. Of course with a group of 25 and headsets that don't always have the best sound quality depending on the conditions wind, other ambient noise, the crowds, it isn't ideal. The crowds can be overwhelming and there is no air conditioning so it can be very hot and claustrophobic. However the guide was able to describe what we were seeing much better than a guide book and give some good stories and answer questions. The least impressive was the garden portion of the tour, which was pretty abbreviated and we didn't really get much direction here other than to be given a map and set off on our own. But with this size of gardens, that's probably the only way to do it. and by this time in the tour, after walking for more than two hours, it would have been tough for some to keep on going. Of course you are free to look around the gardens on your own. Based on some others of note, like those at St Petersburg summer palace, they are nice but not extraordinary. The water fountain show as well is really pretty lame. I would have liked a little more about Marie Antoinette, but this was more about the King Louis IV, V, and VI. To get more about Marie and see some of the private chambers, you need to take other private tours that focus on this.
