It was a wonderful tour, I recommend doing the tour first then exploring around the Gardens. I wasn't able to make it over to Marie Antoinette's estate not included in tour in time before it closed, so I definitely plan on returning in the future.
This was a great way to see Versailles. Didn't have to wait much in line. OUr tour guide, Ana Sophie was great and very helpful. If you can, takle advantge of the rental golf carts that they have outside in the gardens. Its about 40euros for 1 hour. You can see the other gardens as well. Highly recommend.
Tour guide was excellent!
Uitstekende gids. Ze kende heel wat leuke anekdotes waardoor je een goed beeld krijgt van het leven in die tijd. We vermeden zo ook de lange wachtrijen voor het kopen van een ticket. Na de rondleiding konden we meteen een bezoek brengen aan de tuinen.
What a great time we had at Versailles. We had a wonderful guide but I can't remember his name unfortunately. He was so informative and explained in great detail. We saw the main rooms and the Hall of Mirrors.
Great not to have to queue to enter Versailles.
Outside we walked right down to the fountain and the forest, I had been there in 1999 but didn't walk as far down then.
It was such a lovely afternoon and I would recommend this tour to all.
The best tour of Versailles I've had and this was my 5th visit! If you can get Paulette you'll be entertained and informed by one of the most professional and friendly tour guides in France. No trip to Paris is complete without this wonderful tour. Our guide narrated the story of Versailles like no one I'd ever seen!
Tour guide Paulina was especially great. She did an amazing job making it interesting for my two 11 year olds as well. If we had walked through that enormous and decorative palace without a guide we would have missed so much and not enjoyed it as well. Skipping the line was great too. However when he tour was finished around 3pm there was no longer a line. The commentary was worth it's weight in gold!
Pauline was super friendly and highly knowledgeable of the history! We are so happy that we decided to try this as we would most likely not appreciate the Palace of Versailles the way Pauline explained it to us.
Pauline was an excellent tour guide.
Clothilde was a great guide, she was very knowledgable and kept us all interested throughout the whole tour, us adults to our 3 boys aged 11 - 14
