Versailles is only Versailles without our Guide
Sep 2021 • Couples
What can be said about an amazing place, experience, and more so, going through Versailles gardens and palace with Violet. No offense to any other guides ( we have taken quite a few walks and the guides have been amazing) but Violet will forever be the highlight of our trip to France. Words will never describe the wealth of knowledge and love of Versailles you feel from her when going on this tour and she makes sure by the end of it that you learn as much as you can in a short time and love it as well. She provided an afternoon we will never forget, and most of it had nothing to do with physically being there, but enjoying it with someone who who has a passion for the history and details that she emits. We only wish that on any tour going forward, no matter where, she would be there with us to make those experiences as special as she made Versailles for us.

Fascinating Versailles tour
We had a fantastic experience with our guide, Adam. We arrived knowing pretty much nothing about Versailles or the monarchy in France and left with a deeper knowledge of the intrigue of the court (and also quite a bit of gratitude that we aren't living then).

We were lucky to have booked a weekend tour and the fountains were in operation. Adam guided us to the most impressive spots, so we were able to catch the action (and get some great photos).

The palace was practically empty, thanks to COVID, and it just added to the experience!

Awesome experience with Adam
Aug 2021
We had a private tour with Adam & he was amazing! He had so much information & was so interesting. You could tell he loves what he does. It was an awesome tour & we learned so much. He even kept our 19 & 15 year olds attention! He was also really funny. I would highly recommend requesting him on your tour!

Fantastic!
Oct 2019
We have done tours with Take Walks before and they never fail to deliver and this tour was no exception. Great timing at the end of the day so less people in the palace. Our guide, Adam, was exceptional. He gave us a huge amount of historical information, delivered in an entertaining way and made relevant to all the things that we were seeing as we walked though the gardens and palace. His enthusiasm meant that even if you weren’t a history buff you would be enthralled by the story of Versailles and the French monarchy that made it their home. Thanks Adam and Take Walks for a fabulous tour!

Great Tour!
Aug 2019
Violet was amazing. I learned so much from her. She paced us well, told excellent stories amongst her history lessons. Without her, the experience would have been okay, but she really brought the palace and gardens to life. I’m not sure about the ‘without the crowds’ part of the title though. Oh, my goodness, I did not enjoy being pushed and jostled around in some of the bottle necks. Seems they need to do a better job limiting visitors inside the palace at one time.

Hi JoaLarson, we are so glad that you enjoyed your Last Entry Versailles tour with Violette! There is nothing like good storytelling to help you get immersed in the history and world of the place that you are visiting. While it is true that there still are some crowds depending on the day, especially in summer months, we are glad that we get to share a less congested experience with you. We appreciate you sharing your time with us, and hope that you will join us again in the future! All the best, The Walks Team

WOW! What an amazing experience!
Aug 2019
Getting to tour Versailles when the crowds are at their lowest was a very special experience. This is not just a "skip the line" tour that competitors offer, it is a way to try and get the best experience possible near closing time when crowds are at their lowest. This is especially worth it during the summer when tourism is at a peak. I did a total of seven tours with "TakeWalks.com on my European adventure (all were randomly booked on a 3rd party site). I can say the quality of the tours with this company far exceed the other companies I booked other tours with. Adam (who I had the pleasure of touring with a second time at the Louvre) was especially memorable. He has a creative and humorous way of presenting historical material. We had moments in the gardens in a downpour of rain. The few people touring the area left because of inclement weather and got entire areas of the gardens to roam all to ourselves!! What a special experience! The Palace is simply breathtaking. Something I will never forget!!

I was anticipating heavy crowds, but to my surprise it was perfect. The Hall of Mirrors was exceptional light that day which made it perfect for photographs. Adam our tour guide was outstanding! He took our tour to a whole other level with his humor and excellent story telling. If you’re lucky enough to get Adam on this tour, you’re in for a awesome time...”Go Team Adam!”

Team Adam: A Winning 'Last Entry' Formula
Jul 2019 • Family
An amazing tour led by a truly entertaining and thoughtful guide - Adam! Taken by coach from Musee D'Orsay, we entered the Versailles Palace gardens without fuss or incident with virtually no waiting time. The walk around the gardens was memorable for the spicy anecdotes and insights into the 107-year history of the Palace. Our entry to the 'castle' itself was quick - amazingly so! I think the tour struck a great balance between giving participants a taste of the best Versailles has to offer, but without the crowds. Some of the more popular rooms were nearly deserted late in the afternoon. The 'last entry' approach is thoroughly recommended for those who want to avoid crowds (our visit was a Thursday).

Go on days you can see the musical fountains.
Jun 2019 • Couples
1. Be prepared for transport with RER, long enough walk to the Palace&Gardens.
2. Take quality earphones/headphones with you. Those provided by them are of bad quality.
3. Ask for the return ticket, on the RER, from your attendant. Just in case. You can loose the group or the guide/group can loose you. We had suffered it.
4. The Palace will be crowded, in small rooms overcrowded.
5. Take pictures on the go. You will have little time to look to everything.
6. Have a foldable umbrella and raincoats. You will have to walk to and from the train station on foot even if it was raining.
7. No time to shop.
I wish you luck with your guides. We had a terrible guy to/from the Palace and a very good one in the Palace&Gardens.
HAVE A GREAT TRIP!

Hello Stefan J, Thank you for sharing your feedback from your recent Versailles tour with us, we greatly appreciate it! We do apologise if the headsets that you received were not of the quality that you expected. We take great care to only source the best quality technology for our tours so we are very disappointed that you felt let down by the headsets used. We are sorry to hear that you got separated from your tour group on your return train journey. Our guides try their very best to avoid this exact situation but unfortunately these things can happen on rare occasions. We will certainly be discussing this with all of our guides on the Versailles tour with a view to avoiding this in the future. We always want our guests to have had an amazing time with our guides, and we are very sorry to hear that on this occasion one of our guides fell short of your expectations. We do our utmost to select knowledgeable, friendly and engaging guides for our tours so we are sorry to hear that you were left disappointed by one of them. Thank you for sharing those useful tips with your fellow travellers. We run our tours rain, hail or shine, so we love to see our guests come prepared for any wet weather! Thank you again for all of your feedback, as it helps us to improve and grow positively! We hope to have the opportunity to tour with you again soon, Warm regards, The Walks Team
