  • It's was a good trip, the guide was informative.

  • Great staff, very friendly and many languages spoken. The four hour tour advertised isn't exactly true, after the hour bus ride there and back we had 1:45 on site so just be aware you will only have two hours. There was a long site induction and instruction brief that really should have been done on the trip out they just needed to sit the different groups together on the bus to do this.
    It's a good trip and it gets you in as quick as possible.

  • Easy and reliable

  • Great short half day trip and easy to see the palace and grounds on your own. Great options for lunch are available, just ask if you don't see the signs.

  • This is a great tour - very informative and wonderful experience.

  • Shorter 4 hour tour, which worked for teenagers. Audio, self paced was good. Given how quickly we moved through one section, I think they could have added additional audio tour to the time spent there.

  • i had the basic package took you there, gave you a audio pen that only mention 2 seconds of information about each time breakout the extra cash for the personalise tour. The tour set up at the castle, left a lot to be desire, you only could go in one direction, when you have 100s of people going in the same direction, and the rooms are very small, it does get a little cramp. The room not to miss, is the mirror room, it made the trip worth it.
    As castle go, this was my lest favourite, but the gardens are the jewel of the castle.
    so... spend on a guide tour, spend more time in the gardens!!!

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Tour operator Paris vision service was great. Bus was comfortable and air conditioned.
    Versailles King palace tour was OK.

  • This is an audio tour and pretty straight forward in terms of what you'll get. I thought the audio information was informative and paced pretty well so that you can enjoy all the sites and know why each room is important. My only issue was with the tour guides who didn't tell us why we were waiting in line and when our turn was to enter. Then, we we got into the palace, they didn't tell us anything and just assumed we'd figure it all out on our own...not that we could ask them because they weren't easy to find in the crowd. Other than that, if you want a tour that you can learn information without having to follow a strict agenda, then this is the tour for you.
