Great Tour and Guide.
Mar 2020
Great tour.... Picked us seamlessly at our hotel, grabbed people from one other hotel and headed out. Once there, we were handed off to our guide nice lady whom passed headphones and transponders so we could hear her tour without having to be right next to her. Great idea!!! Since the palace can get packed and noisy. Very informative tour. Tour ended and you were allowed about 90min free time to do whatever before van came back. We used the time to have lunch/breakfast at crepe place very close and very good. Got dropped off at home around 3:30pm.

A must do to orientate and get your day going...
Versailles is not just the most beautiful, well know or majestic palace, but it's HUGE 8km² to be precise.

This tour not only includes travel to and back again but our tour guide Guillemette was fantastic!!! Taking us through the history and life at the palace she also made sure we were orientated.

Thanks to the team....

Jan 2020 • Friends
We booked the half-day tour for Versailles. Hotel pickup from Paris was on time, and we met our guild (I can’t remember if it’s Elizabeth or Isabelle) who walked us all to the entrance, and we had a quick entry inside to start the tour. Our guide was really knowledgeable, animated and overall great. Highly recommended!

Great guide—problems w driver
Jan 2020 • Family
We loved the tour of Versailles. The guide was informative and delightful. He made history feel present and alive. The problem was on our return. The driver didn’t enter our hotel in the GPS and ended up driving a long way in the wrong direction. Our schedule was very tight and this was stressful and frustrating. I had even made several communications about our time pressure in advance of the visit. This unfortunate experience was the only flaw in an otherwise lovely visit.

Well Worth The Entire Day
Nov 2019
Nothing bad to say considering circumstances did not work in our driver's favor. The morning we were scheduled to be picked up, there was a 5K that closed many of the streets around our hotel; we had to walk a few blocks to meet up with the driver, and then he had to figure out how to get to the others he was picking up. Once that all was done, it was a clean drop off right at the gates to the palace. Our tour guide was excellent. She was very engaging, provided interesting stories, and was very attentive to everyone in our group, constantly making sure my mother-in-law (in a wheelchair) didn't get lost. The full day trip is necessary if you want to have enough time to properly view the gardens and visit the other buildings. We were promptly picked up right next to the palace, and again the driver was exceptionally professional considering the police had shut down the Champs-Elysees. I highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Versailles for the first time.

Nice, simple way to see Versailles. Pick up at hotel was convenient, and the tour guide was very good. A little overpriced, though.

Good way to visit Versailles
Dec 2019 • Couples
We are very satisfied with this tour everything’s were on time and as expected. We received a confirmation few days in advanced about our pickup time which was 9:20 am. The driver and car was great and we arrived to Versailles at 9:50 am we wait for 10 min in the car for our guide. We joined a group of about 20-30 people. Our lady guide was great and her guide was very interesting and enjoyable. Inside the palace is very crowded even it was off season so expect a lot of people packed in small rooms. Guided part finished around 12:30 pm and we had 1.5 hours for lunch and self exploring the garden and other part of the palace we manage to see most of the garden but I think if the weather was better we needed more time since it is a huge land.
We picked up at 2:00 pm and was back at hotel around 2:45 pm.
If you have a half day it is the most efficient way to visit Versailles. Maybe in summer or if you want to stay for longer time to visit the whole garden you need more time than 4 hours.
For lunch there are couple of restaurant and Cafe in the palace and garden with decent food.

Amazing and opulent place to visit
Nov 2019 • Couples
The driver picked us up on time. He dropped us off at Versailles so we could meet up with the group. Chloe, our tour guide had the best personality and knowledge to match the tour. She had a great command of English (not heavy accent). She was spunky and seemed to take her job very seriously without being obnoxious to the visitors. We visited several rooms in the palace. My favorite room was Marie Antoinette! Everything still looked fresh and lovely.
We opted to continue viewing the apartments instead of the garden outside due to limited time. This tour is best for at least a full day. We will definitely return.

Great tour!
Sep 2019
Pickup and transfer from hotel to Versailles was fine. There is a fairly long walk from the drop-off/meeting point, especially for anyone with any mobility issues. Aside from that the tour was excellent. We got entry without much delay in spite of the large crowds. Versailles must be seen to be believed. The tour guide was excellent and navigated our group through the throngs of visitors. I’d recommend this tour for anyone that’s planning to visit this amazing place.

Private tour with Isabel as guide
Sep 2019
We very much enjoyed the tour. Isabel provided just the right amount of information and was able to furnish any additional information requested. She was also excellent at navigating the crowds, effortlessly getting us getting us where we needed to be in order to take advantage of her explanation. The pace of the tour was excellent, geared to our feedback, not some preconceived schedule. Made for a great day, highly recommended, would request her again!!
