A group of 6, a small bus to take us from Paris to Versailles and back. An informative, friendly and charming guide, Lucille, and a total of five hours. Perfect.
Having been to Versailles a few times many years ago, we had never been to Marie-Antoinette's Petit Trianon and the Hamlet. What a delight - and in some ways more interesting than the main Palace itself.
A solo visit to the Trianon and Hamlet would have involved a lot of walking, from what we could see of many people trudging along the road from the Palace. This tour took us by bus as far as was possible, and picked us up at the exit of the Hamlet, avoiding an even longer walk back. We made this visit first, and then went to Versailles Palace itself. It was so good to skip the line and have Lucille show us through the rooms, with her interesting commentary through ear-pieces. After this we had about 45 minutes to explore the gardens. This was not a cheap tour, but it was worth it, and we would recommend it.
This tour was fantastic. Our guide Michelle was first rate. She was very knowledgeable and fun. Because we were there in August Versailles was crowded but Michelle helped make it great. Would highly recommend this tour

Teriffic tour and a good use of limited time in Paris if you want to include a visti to Versailles. You avoid the long lines to get into the palace, and the hassel of getting out to Versailles from the city. We went on a Saturday afternoon, so we were also able to enjoy the gardens with the fountains in full operation. Our tour guide was great and including our kids, age 6 and 10, and was able to share lots of history and detail. A great way to get to and from Versailles.

Best trip and best tour guide, thank you Ariane. At the time of the tour I was injured and on crutches and she and tour office made every effort not only to help me but also to make sure I enjoyed everything. This tour I would do again on my next trip, it was that good. The Petit Trianon grounds are stunning. Worth every penny.
It was an excellent tour. The only recommendation is that our tour guide should have carried something to hold above her head so we could find her. It was very, very crowded and sometimes it was difficult to figure out where she was even though we could hear her with the headphones.

If you can take this tour with Maeva as your guide, go for it. She was the best. Smiling, enthusiastic, and clearly loved her profession. Versailles was impressive, but extremely crowded. Maeva would pull us over to a semi-quiet corner and tell us about what we were seeing. The crowds were a bit much, but if you have a good guide, it's worth seeing, if only once.
Bravo! Been on many tours in my life; this one was small, attentive, comfortable and knowledgable! I loved the fact that I could have the wind in my hair and an unobstructed view all the way the the castle. That was not the best part however, but our guide Maeva was! Energetic, friendly and smart!
Very entertaining guide tour and she's funny too.
This was a beautiful place to see. Wear comfortable shoes as you will be walking a whole lot. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and she allowed some time to explore on your own as well. You can take pictures inside which was a major perk.
Excellent tour! A guide through this highly popular attraction is highly recommended. Our guide pointed out many things of interest that would have otherwise gone unnoticed. Her knowledge of the history of the building and the town was extensive.
