We had a wonderful time. We missed the meeting place. When we called they were happy to arrange a meetup at the palace. Our guide got us right in and found the best spots inside to tell us anout each room. She was delightful and knowledgeable.

Clothilde was an excellent guide...she was humorous, knowledgeable, fiercely protective of the group's space to ensure all of us had good views of the exhibits. The tour is a bit short as it does not cover the Queen's apartment and Trianon. The group size was at the maximum 30 people but Clothilde ensured that all questions were answered.

Gorgeous night of fountains, bubbles, fire fountains, mists and classical music amongst countless flowers and tall mysterious trees. Definitely do this if you can!

This was our second time to Versailles and it was nice to go into the palace later in the day, not so many people during our tour. Because of that, we got to truly enjoy the beauty of the Hall of Mirrors. The fountain show at night was spectacular! How beautiful, everything was lit up so beautifully, and so romantic!! A must see!

Our guide, Pauline, was a real character and made the history of the Kings and the Palace very entertaining. We enjoyed our tour a lot and later the fountains and gardens were beautiful and really worth seeing.

While crowded, the tour was excellent. The guide made the tour interesting for both parents and children. Skipping the line was essential as the crowds were large. The evening light show was fantastic.

We were unable to get to the office in time--RER A was not in service.The tour office was not able to get us in to meet the tour, but she was helpful an kind. She got our tickets 5 people including my parents and young daughter to the gardens/fountains and future access to the apartments, etc. The wait was long but we really enjoyed the party. It made me imagine that I was invited as a member of the royal court to a garden party music, unbelievable bubbles, fire, food, jesters, etc. Well worth the travel and time!!

The Palace of Versailles tour was amazing and our guide was great, she made found space for our group in the very crowded rooms. Really enjoyed the Place tour, but was a bit disappointed with the Night Fountain Show as we didn't have a guide for this and had to make our own way around each fountain display, but it was a bit difficult to work out the progression of the display. Seemed to be so many people wandering around unsure of what was happening next.

The tour was wonderful and again we were eased to have tickets ahead of time. The lines were crazy long the only complaint I have is that the meeting place was not clear at all and we had no idea who to look for. Luckily we stopped at information and got the info we needed

Aurora, the tour guide to the Palace of Versailles was very nice at explaining the history and political implications related to that magnificent place in English. The tour was nice from beginning to end.The Palace was crowded though, what prevented people from taking good pics and also have a more relaxing time inside that place. The staff at the meeting point also explained we should buy the train ticket back to Paris in advance in case we were going to stay for the show at night. Later on, the Night Fountain Show at the palace gardens was amazing. Very good music and a nice water and fire presentation.

The skip the line part was awesome, as the lines were very long. The tour was excellent, especially the headsets which allowed you to hear the guide no matter where you were standing. I didn't like the empty time between the fountain show and the tour which ended at 5, but we got a chance to buy the best chocolate covered cherries I have ever had from the chocolate shop across from the train station. Better be sure you have round trip train tickets back and don't miss the last train at midnight. You'll miss some of the fireworks just to be close to the entrance or you will miss that train back to Paris. They let you in at 8 to see the fountain show, but don't start the fountains up until 9, which means an hour of milling around doing nothing and waiting while all the gardens are locked and guarded. The fountain show is fabulous, and worth the trip.

Tour company was nice enough to let us move tour from Saturday to Sunday. Unfortunately we took the trin to versailles from Mueseum D'Orsay and because of the final of the Eurocup 2016 being played in Paris if we didn't get the 6:00pm train back to Paris we would have been stuck in Versailles until after 9:00pm. Our tour also started 15 minutes late becaause we were waiting for 2 adults and a baby to show up. The tour which was supposed to be an hour and 15 minutes turned out to be less than 40 minutes. Our guide was good and what we saw was interesting. We also had tickets to the gardens which we would like to have seen but because of the issue with the trains did not do that either.

The tour guide was fantastic and made it worth it! Otherwise it was SO CROWDED we couldn't even walk into rooms and had to wait, we were packed like sardines! We also had a huge crowd waiting in line with many tour guide companies waiting to get in as well as us... amazing how they herd people in Versailles at 20,000 per day during this season, awful!

Visiting Versailles was a must. Unfortunately it was very crowded for our August visit and cosnequently hard to stay close with our group and following along with the tour guide.

To start off on a bad note, the girl who took us from the meeting location (which is located in an office across the street from the train station) flirted the entire time with a tour member and exchanged phone numbers etc and wasted our time by not taking us to the rest of the group until she was done with her flirting and exchange of pleasantries (VERY UNPROFESSIONAL). The tour guide who actually gave us the tour was a bit pushy and was always "testing" us and would NOT for the love of God move on until she received a correct answer. This seemed to annoy the others in the group as well who would roll their eyes or walk on to other areas while the tour guide was speaking. Whenever she lost sight of someone she was say into the microphone "I am here, please come to me" (which was not very descriptive and hard for the "lost" tour guide members to find her as she didn't say which room she was in or where in the room we were). The tour itself went through the most popular parts of Versailles. The Night Fountain Show was awesome. We are from Southern California (near Disneyland) so we were spoiled by a lot of factors (Las Vegas, Disneyland, etc...) but the sheer size and beautiful landscaping was beautiful. The fireworks show at the end was very romantic (seeing fireworks in Paris was a nice touch - albeit not as well choreographed like at Disneyland that we see almost every night in California but good show with good music). Check out each fountain, some of them are really amazing and fun. Again with any tours, please be careful of pickpockets.
I took off 2 stars, 1 due to the person who took us from the office to our guide and 1 for the annoying tour that the guide gave us. Versailles itself is worth going to!
