I really liked our tour guide, she had a great sense of humor and was also friendly. Despite the interior of the castle being super crowded, our guide still captured our attention with her interesting facts and history lessons about the monarchs and Versailles. Would visit again! Definitely recommend booking ahead because this tour helps you skip the line FOR SURE. We waited less than 5 minutes, and entered through a reserved entrance. The rest of the crowd was in a long line under the sun.
ip the line and #34; really works: the lines are huge! And our wonderful guide Lilly (full name for Lilly was I believe Aurellie, but I am not sure I spell her full name correct) - she brought us to the palace in 5 minutes. They say people wait for several hours in line
This was an excellent tour
The guide was very knowledgeable
She paced giving information well and ensured the group kept together
We got the best tour with the fountains fully working
This is a very large palace with extensive gardens and some special corners I will not spoil the effect of in this review
It would be easy to go back for several days to do the palace justice
Fantastic tour with the most fantastic tour guide by the name of Caroline. We loved both the palace tour and the gardens tour and were lucky to have all the fountains working. Caroline made the entire experience one of our best days in Paris. However, we were stranded at the end of the tour with 13 other people as the bus took off before we arrived. It took 1.5 hours of standing in the heat to organise transport back to our hotels. Caroline remainded with us until we were finally put into taxis
Definitely worth the money. Saved about 2 1/2 hours of line time. Unfortunately our tour guide wasn't great, but that was luck of the draw because there were a total of 6 guides for our group that day.
AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's only a half hour train ride from Paris, so it is a definite must see for all people visiittng Paris! Tour is very well organized. They give you headsets so you can hear your guide clearly since it does get crowded in the palace. Tuesdays and Sundays are the busiest days so try to go another day. The fountains were running the day we were there, so that was an addded bonus!
Very good tour. Having the pass to miss the lines made it very worthwhile. Really interesting tour.
Our tour guide was excellent and had a good balance of giving us the history and main points without overwhelming us. We aren and #39;t museum-type people and a half day was the perfect amount of time to get the full experience of the Versailles Palace. This was one of our favorite attractions around Paris.
This is an incredible tour. Book for early in the day to allow time to explore the gardens after your tour. LOVED this tour!!
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and very caring. Some people got separated and she made every effort to find them and bring us together. The tour was full of interesting facts and the experience was great.
This tour was a must see from Paris. Our tour guide, Matuanne, was amazing, very knowledgable and very enthusiastic! He really made the tour. Also the gardens were just breathtaking and our favorite part of the tour. We were a little unsure about how to get back to Paris via train but the tour guides went back via train as well and the entire rail system was very user friendly.
Our tour was wonderful. Our guide Orane was knowledgeable and helpful. The tour group size was small enough that it was easy to stay together. We took a tour bus to the site due to a transportation strike, we did not take the train. We had sufficient time to see a large part of the palace, and part of the grounds, plus had about 30 minutes to stroll around the grounds on our own. I recommend going early in the day, because it gets more crowded in the afternoon. I recommend this tour highly.
We had a superb tour with such a lovely guide, Anais. She was always kind, cheerful, patient with all our questions and thorough with all her answers, and so professional and even nurturing amidst big crowds and a lot of rain. When some in our group got separated including us, she was quite conscientious about repeatedly trying to contact us and ultimately finding us, reminding me of Christ's parable about the shepherd looking for the lost lamb.
This was a terrific tour because our tour guide knew so much about the history of the Versailles palace and the people who lived there. Her love of her work brought the stories alive. Even in the rain this was a great day. Comfortable walking shoes are a must, and remember to hold onto your train ticket even after you use it to get onto the train returning to Paris. You will need it to put into the turnstile in order to leave the train station at Paris.
Excellant tour guide even in the rain. Gave us options of going on or stopping when it started to rain. Very knowledgable tour guide. Would recommend to any and all.
The tour guide was very engaging and knowledgeable
I highly recommend although the option which is available for connecting with the tour group in Versailles would have been easier for the two of us instead of 20 people trying to navigate through a busy rail station
For first time Paris travelers, this selections optimal!
Thank you Mauireon sorry for the spelling mistakes
Tour was great, so was the guide. Was nice being able to skip the line!
Outstanding tour to match the magnificent palace. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. I highly recommend this tour!
Highly recommend the tour and the guide - very knowledgeable.
Gardens are absolutely fabulous as was the water show
This was the only organized tour and we were were so happy that we chose this one. Our guide, Ina not sure of spelling was amazing and kept us completely engaged. The tour was organized beautifully and would highly recommend. This was an incredible value!
