      Awe Inspiring Tour! BRING YOUR CAMERA!
      The palace was as impressive on the outside as it was on the inside! As we approached the palace, we knew that we were in for an incredible day. Our tour guide met us at the office and 8 of us most comfortably jumped into a new Mercedes tour van. The ride from the office to the Versailles palace took 45 minutes maximum. We parked right outside the main gate and from there our formal tour began. Just walking thru the main gates was breath taking. But, to hear the details of the palace, chapel, stables and gardens from our dedicated guide (whose name I have rudely forgotten) set the stage for our day. The line of people to get into the palace was enough for me to do an about face and head back to Paris. If it weren't for the 'skip the line' feature of this tour, I would have done just that. We got into the palace and left that long line of people behind us. Whew! The palace was beautiful! The architecture was glorious. The size and richness of the rooms that we toured thru was extraordinary. The Hall of Mirrors was everything that I've read about. In short...the palace inside and outside was magnificent. If I had one comment to make on a negative side...I wish that we had more time to visit the breath taking gardens that sat behind the Palace. We were given 30 minutes to see the gardens. But realizing the sheer size of the Palace grounds and not wanting to be late for the van's departure back to Paris, we had but a few minutes to see a small portion of the gardens before we had to head back to the van. Another 30 - 45 minutes to walk through the gardens would have been perfect. Please consider taking this tour if you are coming from Paris. Having a private tour guide explaining the inner secrets of the palace along with being transported from Paris and being able to skip that mind numbing line of people waiting to get into the palace is well worth your investment of time and resources. We met up with our tour guide in Paris at 8 AM and we were dropped off at the same location in Paris that we met up with the tour guide. We were back at the tour office around 1 PM. Fabulous half day of touring and a wonderful experience.

      Must See
      Micheal was very knowledgeable about Versailles , they took us there in comfortable van with only a small group . He also got us in first , before the line with no guide , it is so overwhelming seeing all the paintings and other collections. Then get to see the enormous gardens , its a must see with this Tour Operator. Thank You

      Huge crowds
      Our guide was able to help us avoid the huge crowd at the main entrance by taking us to an alternate entrance. Be prepared for HUGE crowds. The Mona Lisa is roped off, so you can't get very close to this small panting. It takes a long time to even get to the rope because 75% of the people are working to get just the right selfie with the painting! There is an overwhelming amount of artwork here. It may be best to decide if there is a certain time period or type of work that you want to see and make that your focus.

      I will remember this tour and experience at Versailles for many years to come
      I had visited Versailles about 10 years ago on a backpacking trip through Europe. This time, I have been planning to visit Versailles again, now with my mom, who was visiting France for the first time. Julie was our tour guide and she brought enthusiasm, knowledge, and storytelling prowess to the tour. Thanks to her colourful descriptions and explanations, for the first time I felt a connection to the history of the site and a sense of the kings and queens who had lived there as real people, with motivations and life circumstances I could understand, so much so that I was later able to translate for my mom in her native language the information Julie had shared with us. The tour enriched our experience--thank you Julie!

      Great guided tour of Versailles.
      We did the 90-minute guided tour of Versailles, and our guide was Maxime. He was excellent, and provided great context for what we saw inside the palace that we would have otherwise missed.

      Expert tour of an amazing feat of architecture and artistry
      Our guide for this tour was absolutely amazing. She fit so much insight and many great stories into the tour - by far the best tour I’ve taken, and she had thoughtful and entertaining answers to all our questions. I’d highly recommend! I’d have liked a little longer to wander round the gardens, but overall a 10/10 experience.

      Lovely experience
      My spouse and I had a great time. Our guide Ching was friendly, informative and moved us through the palace in such a way that we felt one-step ahead of the crowd but not at all rushed. I would highly recommend this tour.

      Fabulous tour guide for Versailles and the Louvre
      We were fortunate to have Oliver as our guide for Versailles and the Louvre. Having a guide with an MA degree from the Sorbonne and 28 years as a guide, was a wonderful experience. His knowledge of European art and history made for two fabulous days of learning for my wife and I. Peter and Deirdre McGregor

      Terrible customer service
      We had a medical emergency the morning of our trip and had to go to the local hospital. We asked the tour operator to move our tour to the next day and showed proof of medical emergency. All we got was the “not within 24 hours”. Unacceptable customer servicd

      Wonderful way to explore Montmartre
      Our amazing guide Olivia gave us so much insight into the historic and beautiful Montmarte area. Her knowledge and explanation of the area was clear and extensive. The streets are cobblestone so comfortable shoes are a must and you need to be able to walk stairs. There is so much history and charm to the area it ended up being our favorite part of Paris.

      Highly Reccommended!
      We arrived at the meeting point and was immediately welcomed by the guide, Oliver. He was very well informed on the Louvre and all the art within. Oliver was well educated and it showed in his presentation. Skip the line entrance is the way to go. It was very crowded and in parts hard to manouver, but that was just a minor problem. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

    We were in Paris for only two days but really wanted to see Normandy Beach. We booked this tour and it was a great decision.. Our guide, Oliver was a history major,, and very knowledgeable about Normandy and Omaha beaches. He was able to explain tactics and answer our questions. He allowed us rime to explore on our own, but gave us plenty of information. We ate at an amazing restaurant where we ordered fresh caught fish and chips, and when we got back to Paris he even gave us suggestions for places to go to dinner that were within walking distance of our hotel. The tour exceeded our expectations again and again. Take this tour! You will be glad you did!
    We hope to come back for a mult day tour, and we will ask for Oliver.

    The day was fantastic. Regis, our tour guide, was not only very knowledgeable, but his engagement with the subject matter was exceptional. The day was long but well worth the time. It was emotional at times, a trip I will never forget. I highly recommend the trip and hope you get Regis as your guide.

    Tour hits the top Normandy sites, informative guide with a great overall perspective of D-Day from both the American and French perspective. Perfect time at each site, no lingering. Excellent , quick but not rushed lunch at a great local restaurant. Comfortable 8 person van . Small enough group (8) kept it personal and interactive . Great presentation at the American Cemetery.
    Good lead in to the overall invasion during the final miles approaching Omaha beach

    Wonderful day with Pascal as our tour guide. Punctual, early start on Champs Elysees (6:45am) and made our way to Pointe de Hoc. About a 3 hr drive. Very comfortable and spotless van for our group of five plus Pascal. It’s almost all highway till you get to the shore. A 15 min coffee and bathroom break at a rest area at about midpoint of our trip. Pascal spent most of the trip over to the shore detailing the events leading to the D day invasion, its different players, preparation and outcomes. He was great. So much detail. Like a history lesson before the tour. Made the trip over go by much more quickly. His English was perfect. After visiting Pointe de Hoc we went to Omaha Beach. Had a very nice lunch ( not included for the is trip ). Then onto the American Cemetery. So moving. What sacrifices. Then onto the Overlord museum and then back to Paris. Traffic was light as it was a holiday and we were back on the Champs Elysees by 7pm.
    Great trip as advertised. We were very fortunate to have Pascal as our guide.

    Fabrise was a great guide. Friendly and knowledgeable when asked questions. The tour takes you to some key historical points that are well worth the visit. Van was comfortable with AC and the pit stop coming and going made the ride a nice part of the trip. It is a long drive, making the driver/guide worth it. The van parked us close and we had sufficient time at each location. Guide walked with us and even ate lunch with the small group at a location pre selected. Very nice meal that was another good break. Museum and cemetery were outstanding. Point Du Hoc is unimaginable. Omaha beach itself was tranquil. Which is why it was important to not be on a huge bus, and with a guide targeting spots to visit which lifted any of the bother on the small local roads….getting to the sites before crowds built was important to us. And alone time was nice rather than a deep never ending audio/mic readout of facts….

    The small group and ease of travel was greatly appreciated. It’s a little over 2 hours to the beaches and we had strategic stops along the way for restroom breaks and to grab a quick bite to eat. The only downside is keeping up with the group. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable but sometimes it would have been nice to have a few more minutes to explore on our own at each spot. It is definitely an experience worth taking and worth the cost.

    O took a tour with Pascal to Normandy. It was definitely a long day but well worth the effort. He was extremely knowledgeable and provided many details of which I was previously unaware regarding the D Day invasion. We visited the cliffside landing spot and Omaha beach. He walked me through all that transpired. Our last stop was the Amercian cemetery that is a must do for every Amercian visiting France -- emotionally on par with the (-11 memorial in NYC though much less crowded and peaceful. I also appreciated that we spent time informing me but also allowed ample time for me to explore on my own.

    The Normandy D-Day beaches and battlefields is an experience. With each small group tour from Paris to Normandy I learn something new. The small group usually consists of 2 families/groups and 8 people with the tour guide. Leaving central Paris around 6AM allows for the drive to the beaches and plenty of time for tours, lessons on the history, and museum viewing - and a great lunch. After 5 visits, I will continue to go on this tour with each Paris visit.
