Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Versailles was incredible and our tour was all that it advertised. The pick up was in time and not rushed. Enjoyed others in our group too. Guide was organized and explained all clearly, giving much history of what we were seeing. I highly suggest this tour. Hotel/ Airbnb pick is well worth it.
Very good experience to visit this Palace. Excellent tour guide . We chose the afternoon tour, which was about 4 hours . Our guide was well knowledgeable about the history of the palace . After the tour, we were given free time to wander around , have lunch and head back to the driver .
This tour was the perfect tour for my first trip to Paris. It gave me a detailed history of how the Palace came to be. Our guide was very knowledgeable on the history of Versailles. And very like able . So despite it being a rainy first day, it was magical .
Sophie was a great guide and the driver was prompt and professional. It was nice to be have private transfer since it was so cold when we went. My only complaint was that the tour was short and not really anything special. You could saved the money and rent a listening device at the front desk. We went in the winter so the line wasn’t bad.
Pick up and drop off at the hotel was on time and very smooth. Worth it rather than trying to take the train and walk the remainder of the way. The tour was great and the head phones were a must with all the visitors inside Versailles. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us many insights into life at Versailles. Walking the gardens was also very beautiful with the remainder of our time. Buy a bottle of wine, get some food and explore all the different areas of the gardens. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Paris.
We were picked up from our hotel on time, by the driver. Our guide Isabelle was very knowledgable, concise and kept the whole group engaged during the tour. We had enough time to see everything in the palace and a leisurely walk around the gardens afterwards.
