Great tour, just enough time to see the inside. We also did the garden trolley tour, just amazing!

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.
We really enjoyed the tour with our guide Clotilde who was charming and informative. Great time!
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.
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.
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.
This is one of the highlight tour in Paris you can't miss!. The tour office/ meeting place is very conveniently located in front of the RER C train station in Versailles. We skipped the ticket lines and security checks was fast track. Although i have read about French History, having a knowledgeable and very pretty guide is a plus. thank you very much to our guide Amandine! The place is amazing, but the garden is spectacular!
Great tour, our guide was wonderful and extremely informative, you could ask her a question about the smallest detail and she had an answer. Definitely worth the extra money, there was a 3 hour line that we completely bypassed by doing this tour! Make sure when you're done to go down through the gardens to the canal, there are two cute restaurants there and you can rent boats, enjoy the park, rent a golf cart and see all the grounds - definitely more to do at Versailles than see the house and close gardens.
We were able to skip both the ticket line and the extremely long security line. The guide was great. This was an excellent value.
Despite the rain the line for entry into Versailles was unbelievable. Our small tour group went straight into the garden / palace. It was extremely crowded inside but our tour guide was extremely apt at working the crowd and making room for our group. She was very knowledgeable about the history and customs and we learnt a great deal. If you want to visit Verseille I highly recommend this tour.
Once the tour is finished you can spend all day in the gardens, which would be lovely on a sunny day.
Excellent tour guide and a great introduction to Versailles. Nice balance of garden and tour of the palace itself. Tour guide was very friendly and good at explaining significance of small details that would otherwise go unnoticed. Highly recommend. You won't regret it.
Great tour and Aurora was wonderful . Being able to skil the line made things so much easier.
