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.
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.
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
Amazing !! Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. She told us a lot about the monarchy who lived in the palace that we wouldn and #39;t have otherwise known about if we and #39;d chosen to walk through on our own. It was great to skip the line and have a small group for this very interesting tour.
We had difficulty finding the office, simply because the train station we got off at was the wrong train station. Make sure you stay on until the very last stop on the line, which is Gare de Versailles Château Rive Gauche. DO NOT get off at Gare de Versailles-Chantiers!
After searching for 45 minutes, we found the office right where it should be. Unnecessary stress caused by not looking at the train map well enough.
Fortunately for us, we were able to rebook from the 10:15 am to the 1:15 pm tour. Apparently 5 other families/groups had the same problem as us that day, as the customer service said they had lots of late people who missed the morning tour.
Our guide was Pauline, and she was both funny and very well versed in giving this tour in English. She kept the group moving and had lots of fun stories and anecdotes to go along with her narration. We really enjoyed the tour that she gave. Thanks Pauline, you were extraordinary!
I highly recommend this skip the line tour.
Jeff from Hawaii along with Marcia and Kim from California.
Anne Sofia was our guide and she was the best! Very knowledgeable and animated.
Great tour and well worth the visit. We took the train to Versailles and it is quite easy. This is something worth seeing.

Versailles is a must-see. Guide was very knowledgeable and informative.
Our tour guide was excellent, moving us through the rooms in the best way to avoid the crowds. It was great to hear the history and meaning of the Palace and I would definitely recommend this tour to help you enjoy your visit to Versailles.
The guide was good, but a bit slow, also though not his fault, a lot of the rooms are not open. Also unless you pay for the cart or train, getting around can be a challenge. However, the Versailles is truly an amazing palace, which should not be missed by anyone, and well worth the trip. I went by train which was so easy. The opulance, grandeur, art works, etc are absolutely amazing. Carol August 2016
Our guide Clotilde was great. Very knowledgeable and very pleasant. Thank you!
This tour greatly exceeded our expectations. Clotilde was an excellent guide and made a busy day at Versailles enjoyable.
Versailles is magnificent, and our tour guide gave us a detailed view of what life was like in the castle.
Paulina our guide was excellent and did her best to keep us together during the tour in a very busy Versailles. The 90 minute your was very informative and a great introduction before we went off on our own to explore. Would definitely recommend as we missed the long lines!
This tour was the perfect length and Pauline was a fabulous guide. She made the rooms come alive, kept us moving through the crowds and did a great recap at the end!
