What people are saying about Gallery of Coaches

Fabio was a great tour guide. No complaints. We were shown all the “important stuff” and then given about an hour of free time to explore the gardens. Very well structured and very informative. Perfect if you don’t want to spend all day there. I do wish we had just a little more time to explore the gardens or maybe stop at a cafe in the gardens for a bite to eat. If this spot ranks high on your list, and you want the luxury of time to explore, maybe opt for something else. But this tour was perfect for our needs. We saw the regal apartments and hall of mirrors, then went straight to the golf carts and toured the gardens. Golf carts are slow - I would recommend renting a bike instead (but bike rental was not near the gardens entrance). Overall I was extremely happy with this tour and I highly recommend!

Our guide was very informative and had a great knowledge of French history and the palace. She encouraged us to ask any questions we liked and she was enthusiastic and friendly. We would recommend this tour to anyone.

Nils was the perfect guide tour. he was very funny and was extremely nice and everything that he explained was understandable and he had a fun way of making the tour Enjoyable
