Versailles during strike
joannatitchener
, Dec 2019
Meeting up went as planned however we were informed that there might be a possibility that the palace would be closed due to current political strike. The tour guides were on top of the situation trying to get the latest info on if we could get in. Once we got the go ahead that the palace would open the tour guide was quick to get us in as there was a crowd of other tours that was supposed to get in earlier, it was so chaotic trying to get in through the crowd but the guide did an amazing job in the difficult situation!she did an amazing job and it was very informative, we would definitely do it again just not on a weekend (crowds) or when there might be a strike.

Excellent skip the line tour

We were fortunate to have Christina V. as a tour guide on this wonderful trip. What an experience. She is so knowledgeable and communicates in a very clear and understandable fashion. We learned so much and she knows how to handle the crowds. We were lucky to have a small group of 11(what a joy!) which made it very easy to work our way through the Palace. Thoroughly enjoyable and a destination not to be missed.

Versailles Palace & Gardens 1/2 Day Morning Tour

Rubin was our Guide and was extremely knowledgeable and informative without being overly detailed. An earpiece microphone was provided and allowed for us to hear all that was spoken even in the most crowded rooms. The group size was small and very manageable for our guide to answer questions and keep us together! Highly recommend Viator as this was our third very positive experience in less than a week.

AMAZING tour thanks to Alex - He made the visit a memorable event

First skip the line is totally worth it. We went late August. Our tour started around 10:30 AM and the lines to get tix was a mile long (no joke). I'd say it was a 2 to 3 hour wait in the sun!!!! Second you should definitively book this tour (which is in English) but only do it if Alex is your guide. Not only is he super friendly but his historical knowledge of the palace, the kings and even beyond is unbelievable. He has a great sense of humor and his narration is interesting and witty. It didn't hurt that though he speaks French fluently, he is Welsh and has a terrific accent.I know there must have been tons of people in the palace during my visit but I honestly didn't notice that much and didn't mind. We were going room to room while listening to him (audio was very good) and I only paid attention to what I was looking at and his voice. During our stay in Paris, we also visited la Tour Eiffel and l'Arc de Triomphe, both beautiful monuments with breathtaking views but my most enjoyable experience was Versailles and no doubt due to Alex. After the visit of the palace, we were free to wander around the gardens which are beautiful but vast. We did some walking but we didn't get to see it all. You can get on a train to visit the Trianons (smaller palaces further away) or you can rent a golf cart. I wish I had looked into renting bikes for after the tour to be able to see more of the gardens and surroundings. It must be possible as we saw a few people biking around.

It was packed and shoulder to shoulder but we expected that and no complaints. Our tour guide, Manuel (Manny) with City Wonders amazed me the way he was able to navigate and lead us through the through the throngs and deal with many inevitable interruptions yet still never losing the thread of the historical tale he narrated. Saw a lot. Learned a lot.

Great visit, Very Crowded!

Fantastic attraction but try and avoid Tuesdays as Pris museums are closed so Versailles is extra busy. Do buy a queue jumper ticket with a guide otherwise you will queue for 2 hours plus You also need at least a ful day for the Palace and the Gardens Our Tour guide, Nev was excellent

Skip the line tour, but Not Really!

I thought our guide himself did a sufficient job but we waited in line for an hour and a half possibly longer. Just know this going in, you definitely have a line and honestly I don’t think being tied to a group got us in any faster. I would suggest if you want to go on a tour pick a smaller group, this was about 24-27 people. If I had it to do over again I would either just tour it myself or pick a group with 15 or less people.

Amazing gardens!

The gardens and fountains at Versailles are incredibly beautiful. The Palace has been thoughtfully restored, although heavy crowds keep it from being rated a "5".

We experienced a very good tour of Versailles Palace & Gardens on Saturday afternoon 8 June 2019. Our guide Rubin from Spain was extremely knowledgeable and informative with a good sense of humor of the palace and gardens. Highly recommended. Mike and Maria from Australia
