Fantastic Trip our driver Pasquel was a wonderful driver especially since it was snowy conditions as I was visiting during the worst snow storm in 31 years! I did not get to enjoy the beautiful garden there as it was covered in snow, so now i must go back in the summer to enjoy the beauty.. : Our guided tour director was wonderful and such fun! Thank you again for making the tour interesting and with lots of humor! Susan

Versailles was beautiful and we had almost a clear path the whole time. Even the hall of mirrors was empty other than our group of 7. Apparently, we travelled at the right time! The guide was great, but a little difficult to understand as English is her second language and she spoke really fast! We struggled to understand her clearly. Other than that, it was great. The hotel pick up and drop off was excellent and we met some lovely folks on the van. Easy trip out of the city and we enjoyed it very much. Wear good shoes as the concrete floors are brutal on your back, feet and legs. There is a coat check if needed for larger coats and umbrellas. The gardens are gorgeous, so make sure to spend some time there.

This is a must do tour if you have a couple of days in Paris and surround area. This was a skip the line tour and well worth the cost and the feature of hotel pick up/drop off. Our van driver/guide was funny and interesting telling us about the areas we drove through on the way to the palace. Once at the palace, we had a separate entry from the public line up. Don't be fooled though, the palace was PACKED with tourists, so be prepared with the crowds and watch your personal items. You will brush up against people due to the tour walkways, so just be aware of your items. Hall of Mirrors was breathtaking. The Gardens were awesome but for us, there wasn't enough time to see it all. We rented a golf cart which helped. MAKE SURE YOU KEEP YOUR ENTRY TICKET with you if you take the golf cart down to the lower gardens free/open to the public. It is needed to go back up to the palace required paid entry proof or else you will need to pay an entry fee again. One person in our party misplaced her ticket so there was a frantic 15 minute search so she could go back with us up to the palace to return the golf cart. There was a line to get the golf cart so be prepared to wait a bit. We had a walking disabled person with us and had to ask for special guidance to drive the golf cart to the area where the person was waiting. One thing we found in Paris is that there are limited disabled accommodations/paths on tours. Luckily, our person could walk with a cane so we just were slower. But the palace covers such a large area our person had to rest many times to get through the tour. Still rate this tour as a 5 star.

Thoroughly enjoyed the guided tour at Versailles palace provided by Gabrielle. She was an amazing story teller. Her story of the Kings and Madame of the palace was so vivid with great details describing each room as we toured through the amazing palace, making us feel like we were living in those time! She was the best guide I ever had.
