We had an excellent tour guide! He was informative about both Versailles as well as other sights in Paris. Comfortable walking shoes are a must and if it’s chilly dress warm because there’s so much to see outside. Versailles is a MUST SEE when in Paris!

Lovely place, punctual starting point, helpful, passionate and knowlegable guide. We arrived on time and we had the opportunity to explore parts of the gardens and the palace. Because of the season there were almost no waiting line to enter, but because of the season as well, we could not see a lot of the important locations.

I was very pleased with the tour. We were able to experience a nice train ride while being informed on a bit of the history of Versailles. It was a great way for us to feel comfortable getting there since we didn't know much of any French. The guide walked us through the gardens and gave us some recommendations on local eateries. For our first time this was the most ideal way for us to experience it with ease, I'd highly recommend.
