So glad we did this tour with pickup and drop-off at our hotel. Even though it was raining and cold, there were long lines - so glad we had priority access. The guided tour inside the palace was very informative and then we were on our own until 5:00pm to tour the rest of the grounds. Despite the rain, we walked all over and took the train to the Trianons and the Queen's Village.

Book this tour for my mom and her husband, late 70's, they really enjoyed it. Pick up was on time and mom mentioned the staff was very nice. Thank you Viator!

Our guided tour was a great way to visit the Palace of Versailles. The priority access represented excellent value as the queues were extremely long. They extended the length of the courtyard in front of the Palace, which is considerable. The headsets ensured that we could hear all the important points. Our guide was knowledgeable and took the time to explain all the important points. The gardens are enormous and a destination on their own. A great trip and highly recommended tour

This tour was excellent. We opted for the 6 hour round trip tour, which was ideal in our case. The shuttle driver arrived right on time, and picked us up at the hotel. One couple was in the van already, and we picked up one more couple on the way. The pick-up and drop off went very smoothly. The driver provided comments about the sites we passed along the way. Our tour guide met us as soon as we got off the shuttle at Versailles. She was very personable, and she understood the history of each room we toured, and the history of the Palace in general. We avoided a very long line because we were part of a tour. If we were not part of a tour, I think we would have waited an hour or more to enter. Instead, we entered within a few minutes of arriving. Our guide spoke excellent English. The tour through the Palace hit many highlights, but not all. This left enough time to tour the gardens surrounding the Palace. We didn't have a lot of extra time, and had to see the highlights of the gardens, but it was adequate. If you want to spend a lot of time touring the grounds, you will need to sign up for the longer tour. The drive is approximately 50 minutes each way. We were picked up at 9 am, and returned to our hotel at about 3 PM, which still left time to tour Montmarte and Sacre Coeur that afternoon and evening. No question, this is the best way to see Versaille.

Versailes is quite a way from Paris. We chose the option of a hotel pick up and were so glad we did. Our driver was prompt, courteous and friendly. When we got there our guide was there waiting for us. The line was super long, thank goodness we could cut the line because we had a guided tour. The guide was knowledgeable, friendly and knew how to get around the crowds. She made herself available to answer any other questions before she left us. The driver was at our meeting point on time for the ride back to Paris. Definitely worth the time to go there and the money was well spent.

While we did many other things in Paris on our own like using the Metro or walking, we decided to book Versailles as a guided tour and we're happy we did. Our driver was right on time, very knowledgeable about pointing things out along the commute, and navigated Paris traffic with ease. Our guide at the museum was top notch. Very pleasant and knowledgeable, not only about the things she discussed, but also about any questions members of our group had for her. The guided tour helped with our quick entrance and she also did an excellent job of keeping us all together in those ultra crowded rooms. One last thing to note were the rail strikes going on in Paris during certain days of our visit. Taxis and ubers became more costly and in higher demand on those days, so having a private ride was one less thing to worry about. Highly recommend this tour.
