  • We purchased tickets for a 10:00 tour. We met our guide at a small shop across from the train station, walked as a group to Versailles and went up to the front of the line which was from the entrance to the gate around the property. Our guide was very informative and it was well worth the extra cost.

  • Amazing!

  • We missed our originally scheduled tour, and the next and last tour of the day had been canceled. Guidatour could easily have told us we were out of luck and to try again another day, but instead they called around to find another guide to take us which was so amazing. We ended up having a private tour just the two of us and our guide Isabel, who was fabulous. The skip-the-line option is definitely worth it, and being the off-season in November, the palace wasn't too crowded. I would absolutely use Guidatour company again!

  • Skipping the line seemed to save time, but we had to wait for our tour guide and couldn't see much from the waiting area. The headsets were spotty and the size of the group made setting them up... somewhat trying. The guide was friendly and informative but not as engaging as other guides I've had in the past.

  • Fantastic tour, very informative but short and simple. Our tour guide Claudia was great. She was lively and kept the tour interesting. The headsets really helped us hear her and stay within our small group.

    The lines were ridiculously long so 'Skip-the-line' tickets were well worth the purchase. There's also an easy train from Paris to Versailles too, so save your money and take the RER and metro instead of Uber or taxi.

    The fountain show in the gardens that day were not free and not included in this package. You would have to pay to enter the gardens. We didn't have time for that but we were able to still take pictures in front of them.

    I would definitely recommend this tour to people who have limited time in Paris and want just a half day experience.

  • Not the providers fault that I missed my tour, but their office advertised opening hours until 8PM and they were closed when I arrived @ a bit after 5PM, so I was unable to at least claim my tickets wasting my time and money.

  • Our guide Isabelle was great. Funny smart and helpful. Highly recommend.

  • Good tour - just very busy!

  • Tour went very well, guide Anne Sophie very knowledgeable and helpful. We are both over 70 and found that there was a fair bit of walking and standing around. Only to be expected, but a few opportunities to pause and sit awhile would have been welcome! The palace was very busy which I guess is also normal and there's no avoiding it. We paid the extra 8.50 euro each and toured the gardens. We took a trip on the petit train which was worth the 7.50 euro ticket. Somehow we missed the music and fountains, even though they were supposed to be on all day Tuesday. Allow 5 hours if you want to do what we did.

  • Great tour with a great guide. She was very knowledgable. We got lucky and had a very small group on the tour so were able to ask all the questions we had. Would definitely recommend this tour.
