    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.

    Our guide was knowledgeable regarding the history of France but could have been more entertaining from a personal perspective.

    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 .

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • 17-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.

    I would highly recommend. And that is all that I would like to say other than it was very hard to understand our guide

  • 06-Feb-2020

    The driver was very late and I think it impacted the amount of time we had in Versailles. Our guide was very knowledgeable but because we were late in arriving I felt hurried through the palace. The palace was so unique and the guide was great at explaining the history of the palace through the many French kings and their reign. just wish we hadn’t felt hurried.

    Chloe was an excellent tour guide. I had a much better understanding of French history after our tour.
