Beautiful Versailles
, Mar 2020
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.
Versailles a must in Paris
, Mar 2020
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 .
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable

Our guide was knowledgeable regarding the history of France but could have been more entertaining from a personal perspective.
Perfect tour
, Feb 2020
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 .
Great guide

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.
Good tour

Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, showed the highlights of the Palace. Although would have liked the tour to be longer and able to see more of the Palace.
Very beautiful

Chloe was great at explaining everything and what a site to see. The only thing is its a little over priced for what you get.
Day Trip To Versailles
, Feb 2020
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.
Versailles half day tour with hotel pick up
, Feb 2020
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.
Taste of France
, Feb 2020
I would highly recommend. And that is all that I would like to say other than it was very hard to understand our guide
