This was excellent
Great tour of palace and gardens in just the right amount of time. Spent a little longer afterwards wandering through the gardens. Unfortunately Paris had a strike on the Tuesday we had booked to come and see the fountains working. We received the email too late and had travelled out to Versaille but Guidatours were very accomodating and were able to book us in for the following day. They also offered us both free Louvre tickets to compensate.
This tour was amazing!
Wonderful and knowledgable tour guide. Beautiful gardens!
We really enjoyed our tour today with Amadine. She was very knowledgeable and we found out some very interesting facts about the palace and gardens. She walked at an excellent pace, and we were able to hear her well with our headsets in the palace. She had a great sense of humor about the death of Louis XIV with what the smell would have been like, and how their lives were so public. The palace is packed with many visitors, but going in the morning you miss some of the lines.
We found out a great deal about the monarchy and the opulence of Versailles. I recommend the tour highly. I also think the 1/2 day was perfect. If you wanted more you could go back to the gardens and Marie Antoinette's palace, or you could choose to call it a day. Nice option.
This tour was not only very affordable, it was ABSOLUTELY necessary when trying to get into the Palace of Versailles. By the time we met our tour guide and were about to enter the group tours entrance, the line for individual entrance was out into the main street thousands of feet long.
Not only that, our tour guide added context and meaning to the gardens and palace that we never would have got on our own. Without a tour guide, this is just a very pretty building. This is the very best half day tour available in Versailles!
The tour was great and the guide was excellent! Highly recommend visiting Versailles!
Skip the line is very helpful! Our guide Natalie was informative and made sure that the group stuck together and had a good view of the artifacts.
