What people are saying about Picardy

I was hesitant to do a guided tour but let me tell you it’s worth it! First, If it’s your first time visiting, you need a guide (our was Cecile, amazing) to explain the history and guide you through, this is a huge property and there are many things to explore. This experience covers the most important parts of chateau Versailles. Second, the transport is hassle free. Yes, you can take the train, metro, walk (back and forth) but it’s a pain especially when returning back. Spend the extra money you won’t regret it. One last thing, the 5 hour tour is including transportation of 30-40min each way.

Beautiful experience and a MUST see. Stairs are steep so make sure you wear secure and comfortable shoes! Lines are long so buy your skip the line ticket, you won’t be sorry. And, do make sure you stand in the correct line

Our half day tour with the gourmet lunch was fantastic. The organization for meeting, traveling to/from Versailles and our tour was great! Sylvia was a wonderfully delightful tour guide! Definitely recommend!

Wonderful trip, well organized and very interesting. Excellent tour guide (Leona) and driver (Ibrahim). Highly recommended

It’s definitely worth it to get a bus trip and guided tour!
