My wife and I booked a four hour tour. Our guide picked us up at the hotel right on time, he was very pleasant and a good conversationalist. My wife and I can not remember his name, but he was excellent. He was able to get us directly into the palace without waiting in any line. We chose to guide ourselves, so once we received the audio guide, we were on our way. The palace and grounds were amazing. There was so much to see and our only regret was that we should have booked the entire day. Once our short four hours were over, our guide picked us up and dropped us off where ever we wanted to go. It was truly an amazing tour.
Excellent tour and guide,,,highly reccommend!
Excellent experience. Our driver very prompt
and gave us terrific ride to Versailles.
He was a lovely driver and has a Super sense of humor,
Although the tour 14th Jun was cancelled because there was a strike at the palace the tour operator called to said they will monitor if the palace will be reopen again. We got a called later to said it was open and we was pick up to the palace. Upon reaching the palace, again the official from the palace announced they on strike again. The tour guide kept apologizing which was not his fault, very patient and friendly guide even suggested to bring us another place of interest but most prefer to return to our hotel. Throughout our journey to and from the palace he introduced along the way the building, structure, history of Paris etc Very knowledgeable.
Passionate enough to care of the older tourists on board. Wonderful guide everyone in the group like like. He even told us he will request the company to compensate us since the palace is closed and true enough we was given a full refund. Thank you Viator and their guide and operator.
I would highly recommend this tour. The lines were VERY long, but we were able to walk right in. There was plenty of time to explore on our own using an audio tour. Our driver/travel guide, Ercon was THE BEST!!!! He was at our hotel right on time and shared a ton of interesting information about the city, landmarks, and people. Ercon was extremely personable. He was funny and charming...a guide anyone would be lucky to have!
The whole experience was fantastic. It was well coordinated, and our guide was excellent. Skip the line was a great inclusion.
All venues which we used Viatior were very good and we had no bad experience with this service. We will use Viator in the future.
Our drivers were great. On time super information and madd sure we had no issues
This was a great tour. Our driver was on time to our hotel we were the first pickup and had a great personality during the drive to and from Versailles. Lots of interesting tidbits were shared on the drive to and from, and he was willing to drop us off at Montemarte instead of the hotel afterwards. Gave us some good tips for the Versailles tour like the hot chocolate at Angelina's and fought the other tour groups to get us in there and equipped with audio for our tours. Very glad we booked this!

We spent a wonderful day touring Versailles. Our driver/guide picked us up at our hotel and shared great general information about Paris, its history, and Versailles with the 8 of us in our van. It made the two-hour ride which was this long due to unusually bad traffic, caused by an accident seem much shorter than it really was. We arrived about an hour late for our tour time, so our guide stayed with us to make sure it was all worked out, and we were able to get started on our audio tour. At this time, he left us and returned about 4 hours later. The audio tour was perfect for us--it allowed us to do it at our own pace took about 1.5 hours and with a narrated audio description which was very easy to understand. After the tour, we had lunch at Angelina, at the suggestion of our guide. It's famous for its hot chocolate and desserts. We passed on the hot chocolate, as it was quite warm that day. The restaurant is inside the castle. At lunch, we enjoyed foie gras, quiche lorraine, and croque monsieur's. There was also a good selection of wines. After lunch, we enjoyed the beautiful gardens. Then, we took the petite train. It's a little train which carries about 40 passengers around a circuit. Without stops, it would take 40 minutes. The cost was just 7.5 per person. Stops included the petite trianon, grand trianon, and grand canal. We stopped for refreshments at the grand canal. There are a couple of restaurants, a gift shop, and a place to rent little boats there. We were also able to photograph the floating waterfall close-up. The guide picked us on time around 4:00, and the ride back to our hotels was only about an hour. Overall, this was a great tour and a great day.
