Isabelle was a very knowledgeable and accommodating guide.

We were very pleased with this tour. The details on meeting place, timing, etc. were clear and helped us feel comfortable about our visit. We could not have had a better guide than Isabelle: very experienced and knowledgeable, considerate, great sense of humor. She thought of everything to make our visit perfect - at each stop along the tour she called my 10-year-old granddaughter to the front of the group so she could take pictures - very thoughtful. At the end of the tour she told Ada to be sure to get hot chocolate at the Versailles restaurant. Ada said it was so different from hot chocolate in the US and was the best she ever had! Those were just the kind of experiences I wanted her to have in France. Merci, Isabelle!

You can Skip-the-line, but you can’t skip the crowds

It was a very good tour. Our guide was knowledgeable. We were able to skip the long entrance line for the palace which was almost the best part. Though once inside, the palace is extremely crowded. There isn’t much space in each room to really get a good look at everything and you move through rather quickly. Something else to note - when booking it says that the tour is 2 hours long, but you should plan to be with tour guide for at least 3 hours. From meeting time until the end it was a little over 3 hours for us. This meant that we only had from 4:30-6:00pm to explore the gardens and other buildings on our own. That wasn’t even close to enough time for us and was somewhat disappointing.

Informative, interesting and brilliant tour which we highly recommend

I visited Paris with my 18 year old daughter who studied Louie the 14th at A-Level. Chorletta our guide was knowledgeable, interesting to listen to and knew the best places to position ourselves in the rooms for the best views. She provided an ear piece so that we could hear everything she said. There was a queue in the group holding area, however, it was clear she knew the staff and ensured that we had a short wait. We really enjoyed the tour. Getting our tickets at the beginning of the tour was straightforward and well organised.

No bathroom at meeting point! Would have been nice to know!

Nice tour however felt our tour guide could have shared more information about Versailles logistics for dining and transportation. We would have rented an electric car if we had known they are available. Difficult to find restaurants with seating!!!! And we thought the train to Petit Trianon was part of our ticket. It was not. Details mean a lot to tourists with limited time.

Saw the line and very glad we skipped it!

Valarie was a great guide very knowledgable, good sense of humour, and did great job navigating us through a busy palace on a Saturday in Summer. I was a bit uncertain from description what access we had. Guided tour of palace. Some exhibitions in palace rotate so that was unguided access. Unguided access to gardens. Was very warm and sunny in Summer.
