The Palace of Versailles is a must see for everyone visiting Paris. It is a stunning place with a rich history. Our tour guide shared details that you don't learn in textbooks. We left the place with more knowledge that we will keep forever.
Beautiful bus ride on a clean modern double decker bus. Enjoyed the information from our tour guide. Also enjoyed the freedom to revisit or continue to explore any areas during our informal times. Very punctual. Would have loved to have had a bottle of water included on the bus ride for both travelling to and from destination.
Comfortable motor coach departs from central Paris behind Louvre, for a relatively short trip. Getting into, or out of Paris can take some time traffic. I went to three chateaus south of Paris which were unique, but Versailles was the most opulent, with the best grounds. Of course there is a lot more people to contend with, which detracts a little. The tour is on a tight schedule entering at a specific time. Tour guide was obviously knowledgeable. There was sufficient time for photos inside, and about an hour and a half outside before entering.
My husband and I were amazed by how smooth this tour went. Our guide Corrine was amazing, she was knowledgable, helpful, professional and astute. Her sense of humor made the trip even better. The hotels they chose were clean and comfortable. The meals were average, nothing to write mom home about. We were pleasantly surprised. Oh, take an umbrella, it rains A LOT.
We were very happy with the tour and the guide was excellent. Would perhaps have liked to have had a little longer to explore the gardens but overall we were happy.
Thousands of people at this facility. Tour guide did a good job. Beautiful gardens.
Comfortable shoes are a must on this tour. I think we walked 8 miles on this tour. Beautiful gardens and museum. Again the Do not Wait in Line tickets were wonderful. Thousands of people were in line to purchase tickets.
Bit expensive but great tour! You really use in a smart way your time.

The shear size of this venue is overwhelming. I can't imagine trying to navigate it on my own. Our guide was great! it was well paced so plenty of time for photos and a bit of looking around on your own time as well.
Awesome tour guide! Great way to see Versailles and skip the lines.
Would definitely recommend a trip to a beautiful palace. The craftsmanship and expanse of the palace are something to be seen!
The tour had a long cue although we had skip the line tickets...but it was worth the wait.
Had been to Versailles a few times prior. This was first on guided tour. EXCELLENT and well worth the price. The guided tour of the gardens and fountains was particularly good. Saw fountains I hadn't seen before and appreciated the backstory provided by the guide.
Awesome. If there's one place to see outside of Paris, it's Versailles.
Expect incredible crowds, but with a guided tour you get front of the line access. Very beautiful to see, long but worth it. The gardens, the fountains and the inside of Versailles are breathtaking. Don't expect to see every detail. It's not possible unless you spend 5 or 6 days at the site. Great guide.
Absolutely amazing, could not believe what we saw at Palace of Versailles.Our Guide was extremely knowlegable on the history of the Palace
The Palace of Versailles is magnificent, a must see! The tour was very organized, the bus was new, clean and comfortable and our guide was very informative!
A trip to Versailles is a must when visiting Paris, and having the fountains on the guide told us this only happens on Tuesdays and the weekends when it was the busiest, with the musical water display made this tour a treat for the family we will remember.
