I loved this tour!! Our guide was super knowledgeable and friendly. It is definitely worth to book the extra tour of the gardens!

Our guide was super friendly and spoke great English. It was completely worth the money and I’m very happy we didn’t do it on our own. Listening to the history was just as interesting as seeing it. The tour, employees and content covered were great. You can spend the rest of day roaming gardens.

We arrived early at the local office and were guided to enter the gardens early. Great advice as we had a great day. Tour guide Gabriel was thoughtful and interesting with commentary throughout the palace wired to our small group.

I have never been on a guided tour before and was a bit sceptical because I do know a lot about Versailles and was going with my best friend we were really delighted with our tour ,however. Our guide Claudia met us dead on time and the tour was great. Claudia explained all about how the Chateau was built in stages but what we really loved were all the little bits of REAL information that really brought it alive. Like the fact that Louis went bald at a very early age due to lead poisoning etc. It really brought the place alive, after all you can read the other stuff in a guide book!! She had a lovely sense of humour and really helped us have an amazing day!! I would recommend to anyone
Also Viator kept in touch with emails and text Brilliant

We had the opportunity this week to enjoy a half day tour of the Versailles Palace and Gardens.
We were fortunate enough to have Gabriella as our Tour Guide.
Gabriella was warm and engaging from the moment she introduced herself.
Throughout the two tours she proved to be highly knowledgeable, providing many interesting details and antecdotes about the various features of the Palace and its history.
Gabriella was open to all questions asked and without fail answered queries in the most complete and professional manner.
The tour was well organized and efficient in terms of how much detail and specifics that Gabriella inserted into the tour given the relatively short timeline.
I plan on returning to Versaille to be part of more tours.
I certainly will attempt to arrange to be part of any group that Gabriella leads.
If you are going to Versailles for the first time be sure to ask that Gabriella be your Tour Guide

What an amazing tour! Our guide was lovely, knowledgeable and accommodating! This tour is worth the cost and it is near a metro line.

Our tour guide Gabriella was outstanding. Her tour was the right mix of history and human interest stories. She showed us the most remarkable fountains in the garden!

It was great! Gabrielle made the visit interesting and ensured we were all included in the tour. She was particularly great with our 12 and 15 year old kids - made the day exciting and filled with fun.

The tour was amazing! Claudia was an incredible guide who knew so many interesting things about Versailles. She was full of energy and kept all of us on track. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. My only feedback was I wish it started earlier (9 or 10). Thank you!

Isabelle was our guide and she was incredibly knowledgeable and shared the information with passion and humor -- making the tour both informative and enjoyable. It was a blazing hot day -- and Isabelle never missed a beat -- and went out of her way to encourage us and keep us energized around the thrilling history of Versaiiles. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.

Excellent and professional tour guide who made sure we saw all the best bits of the Palace currently open. In the gardens the fountains were amazing especially with the musical accompaniment.
The only downside was having to wait for latecomers which is very selfish and rude on their part - no reflection on the tour company or guide.

We arrived 15 minutes late for our reservation our fault-trains are hard when you know little French and thought the whole day of plans would be ruined because of it. The tour group had departed to begin already and we were told we'd have to return hours later to catch another tour. However, I believe her name was Caroline, came to the rescue along with our tour guide Gabriella, who cut her lunch break short to take the three of us because she has such a passion for what she does that she didn't mind taking extra tour time to show us around. I had no idea what to expect from the tour because I've always been the kind of person who reads up on things and visits by walking around listening to audio guides or reading from my phone as I go. Versailles is not one of those places and can easily be overwhelming to tackle on your own. The tour gave us an insider look into what we were seeing and the VIP access of skipping past tons of people in line. I couldn't be happier that Gabriella was there to show us all around Versailles revealing secrets about each room and statue in the gardens. She made us feel as though we'd been transported back to that time and were experiencing the palace and gardens through the perspective of the royals themselves. While we should have been in a tour group of 30, we ended up being 5 after collecting a couple of ladies who got separated from their original group. If you have the option, pay a bit extra to do a smaller tour group as it makes the entire experience so charming and intimate. Gabriella, I hope you read this because I'm weeks back from my trip and still raving about your tour and how amazing you are. It was such a pleasure to meet you. You have left a lasting impression on me and have inspired me to learn more and more about the places I visit. -Katie Also, Angela and Rick

Great tour - well worth the cost. Very knowledgeable guide who also, given the crowds, made sure that we saw the best of the palace., Also very well organised.

I have to admit, that while we took this tour in 2012 and LOVED it, we were unable to make it to this tour this time due to a terrible mishap. The company however was GREAT about it, and when we explained we'd had to miss it as we were at the US Embassy they were very understanding. So the tour was wonderful in 2012, and the tour company was outstanding in 2016.

Amazing tour worth the expense to see the real Versailles given by passionate citizens. Was late for first tour due to lateness of flight and company adjusted tour time. Highly recommend!

I would highly recommend the Skip the Line Tour. Just the fact of being able to skip the line is fantastic when you realise that you could spend hours just waiting in line to get in so it's worth it on that basis alone. Apart from that the tour gave us a really good look at the gardens and the palace itself. We could have stayed on afterwards to explore more of the gardens if we'd chosen to. The guide on the day was brilliant - very informative, funny, kept us moving but not in a way that felt hurried or hassled. Excellent value for money and I highly recommend it.

My family really enjoyed this tour of Versailles. The guide was very knowledgeable and told fun and interesting stories. The garden tour was nice, but we were not there on one of the days when the fountains were on disappointing.
Would book with this company for a tour again.

Versailles is amazing and a must see if visiting Paris. My family and I were fortunate to have Pauline T. as our tour guide for the second day in a row. As I said in my review of your Louvre tour, she is the best tour guide I ever had. Her knowledge and passion for the subject she is presenting is excellent. Every tour guide we had the rest of the week paled in comparison.
