Great tour ! Pedro was amazing with details and we could walk around after the tour itself.
An excellent tour guide !!!!!! I was lucky that on this small group tour, the 2 Canadians cancelled at last moment and I got the t/guide all to myself. Communications was excellent his english better than mine ?, knowledge and history/culture all top-marks. Notable extra exhibition on at Versailles and he recommended I do it too .......was time pushed but did it. Was most worthwhile.
Our guide Christophe was great. He was on time and guided us well through the massive crowds!
This is a fantastic tour! We booked the full day trip and it was worth it! We arrived early enough to have a walk around the beautiful gardens before we started our tour, which consisted of my wife and I and two other couples. Our guide was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable. His enthusiasm for history was evident in the way he spoke and additional contextual information he provided to help provide a better picture of what the world was like when Versailles was the seat of power.
We then were taken to eat a beautiful restaurant on the grounds followed by a tour of Marie Antionette's private palace and farmhouse.
This tour is a must.
Versailles is extremely popular, even in the low season so be mindful that it will be crowded.
our tour guide was wonderful. She had great knowledge, was very personable and incredibly flexible in getting us to desired destinations after the tour! This was one of the highlights of our visit to Paris!
The driver/ guide was woderful 5 stars, as was booking the pickup and drop off at our Paris Hotel. I've booked other Viator tours in England and Italy which were also great. The trip to Versailes was easy, Viator provided an audio guide that allowed us to walk in the gardens, and the meet at a designated time for our inside tour, ample time for both. We would book Viator again should our travel needs require tours.
My husband and I took this full day tour on the last Sunday in October, which I believe was the last day the fountains were working for the season. The tour guide picked us up at the hotel promptly at 8AM before picking up 3 more passengers that were staying in hotels in the same area as us. We quickly formed a friendship that made for a very pleasant day. The guide was informative and knowledgeable not only about the Palace of Versailles but also the town. And he told us details about Paris and the areas we drove through to get to Versailles. This was a long day but well worth it. The Palace of Versailles, the smaller palaces, the fountains, the gardens, the Grand Canal and Marie Antoinette's village are unbelievable. It is hard to imagine the life the king lived even after seeing all this. We had some free time to walk through the gardens and fountains. A tasty chicken dinner at a restaurant on the palace grounds was part of the tickety price.
Amazing place! We spent the morning at the palace and gardens, and to our surprise, the tour included a wonderful lunch with wine and dessert include. Afternoon was spent at 2 smaller yet still magnificent residences, and finished with a stroll through the English garden and the hamlet built for Marie Antoinette. Only 4 in our group and we learned a lot!!
I hadn't been to Versailles in over 2 decades so this time, I decided to take more of a private tour. This meant that I was picked up at my hotel and there was only one other couple in the car. We were completely taken care of given a guide with a pen that activated information and ear plugs for the King's apartments. The driver spoke in both of our languages and made great time considering traffic in Paris. This company seemed professional and made sure that you were taken care of. We had 2.5 hours to tour the apartments.
outstanding value!! well worth the money, to save time, and physical wear and tear!! We went directly from our hotel to a group only entrance, no lines, minimal wait time. Vacationing can be physically demanding, by utilizing the pick up/drop off portion of this excursion, we saved considerable steps getting to/from. Excellent driver, gave us tips about the city etc. Highly recommend!!
Driver/Guide was superb. Provided much info throughout the tour. The small group of seven made the trip even better, even though the others spoke only Portuguese. The lunch was fantastic. I would highly recommend this tour.
Our tour was absolutely fantastic. We booked the half day tour with audio which was great however the full day tour would have given us more time to explore the gardens. Thank you so much to our tour guide Damon who picked us up on time. He was friendly and a world of knowledge and we really learnt a lot from him. Thanks so much Damon for a great time and thank you also Viator booking with you was easy and I would have recommend you to anyone. Loved it Chris and Lisa from Australia
Very convenient to have our guide drive us out to Versailles and the palace and gardens were AMAZING! Only wish we had a little longer in the garden without having the full 8 hour day.
Great morning tour. Guide was organised and very informative. Beautiful tour highly recommend.
Great tour. Guide was terrific, we had ha terrific morning. Versailles is wonderful, highly recommend
Go small it's not so overwhelming and you feel safe and well taken care of...
We did the full day tour and it really gave us excellent value. Guide, Walter - was excellent!
Tour guide was amazing - very knowledgeable, warm and fun. We learned so much about French history and had a great time! Would highly recommend this trip!
Our driver picked us up promptly and was friendly, knowledgeable and a safe driver.
Our tour guide was helpful, efficient and knowledgeable. The tour time gave us plenty of time to walk the grounds, the interior and we even had time to grab a coffee from the Cafe Angelina outpost. If you are looking to make the most of your day, the pickup and drop off at the hotel def. took the guessing work out.
This was on our list of places to see when my wife flew over for her vacation. We were picked up at our hotel on time, there were 8 in our group, our guide was able to easily speak 3 languages to talk to all of us. Easy admittance into Versailles, we did the morning half day and had a few hours to wander around. Inside Versailles we had plenty of time to visit all open areas with time for heading outside to see the grounds. Our tour guide was wonderfully prepared to answer questions. Was able to see The Petite Statue of Liberty on our way back to the hotel.
Wally was wonderful. You are really short-changing yourself if you only do a half day to see the palace. It is the second half beyond the main structure where you get to understand the scale of everything. I highly recommend that you take the time to see the grounds, Grand Trianon and Petit Trianon.
