What a great way to see Versailles! Our guide, Clare, was fantastic. So so knowledgeable about the palace and it's history. Most importantly to us at least she is Parisian but spoke perfect English slang words and all! We arrived by van with only 8 of us. We were brought up the side entrance where there was no traffic or crowds at all. Entered through the group gate and was handed out tickets. We were whisked through security and into the palace within minutes. Got through the palace and the gardens leisurely. When we came out to take pictures of the front of the palace and the magnificent gates the LINE to get in was ridiculous. Literally hundreds of people. No way those people were ever getting in before it closed. If you're hesitating about the slightly more money for a skip the line ticket or tour.........DO IT!!!! You will be glad you did once you see the general public entrance lines. Ask for Clare - she's one of their best. Also - at the end of our tour, we were supposed to be dropped at either the Arc or somewhere on the Champs de Elysses. We my family wanted to be dropped at a bridge directly across from the Eiffel Tower. The guide took a poll, everyone was in agreement so he dropped us all off at that spot. Nice to have flexibility if the majority agrees!

Without a doubt one of the best tours my husband and I did in Paris. Our driver Ethan picked us up at our hotel on time, and we had a very easy drive into Versailles. His conversation was engaging and very friendly - a great guy! Additionally, our guide at Versailles, Claire did a first class job showing us around the palace. She too was engaging, entertaining and full of knowledge. We were particularly blessed that day to be able to enjoy the tour just by ourselves due to what we think was very cold weather! As we were taken into each room Claire was ready with lots of really interesting information and more than happy to answer any questions that we had. On return to Paris, Ethan was ready to take us back and we had a great time talking about life, humour and history. He dropped us of, as expected at the Arc De Triomphe and gave us some great suggestions as to what we could do with our time in the area. Thank you both for a wonderful day, we highly recommend this tour!

Absolutely incredible beauty and opulence. So thrilled that we included this trip an put it at the end like placing a cherry on top of a banana split. This is a must-see piece of history. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and through. He gave detailed information about the beautiful murals on ceiling and walls and taught us how the people viewed King Louie. Five Stars Plus!!!!

This was my first trip to Versailles. I picked the perfect 1/2 day tour. We were picked up at our hotel and Matthew explained everything to us carefully and then we skipped the line and he guided us through the chateau and gave us leisure time to explore the gardens. Then we met at a cafe before returning to our Paris hotel.
