Convenience worth the cost
Jonna_M
, Oct 2021
I booked this tour for myself and a friend primarily because of the hotel pick up in Paris. It was a convenience issue. We were picked up in a nice clean van by a friendly driver and take him to a meeting point where we met our guide and a group of other people on our tour. Isabelle what is our guide. She was very knowledgeable and friendly and she gave clear instructions. We all basically followed her around and did what she told us to do. It was easy to get inside with tickets she gave us and the audio earpiece worked well once you could figure out how to put it on. We walked from room to room and listen to her tell us about the rooms and the history and other important items. Afterwards, we were free to wander the gardens on our own. She pointed out which things were most important to see. If you are looking for an in-depth tour, you may want your own individual guide. Otherwise, the small group guided tour worked well. We did the tour on a Tuesday afternoon. It was not terribly crowded. There was no line to get in.

Can’t say enough about this tour. They picked us up in front of our hotel - no need to worry about how to get the Versailles. The tour guide was excellent. She put a lot of effort to provide the history in a very entertaining way. Really, it was absolutely a wonderful experience.

Beautiful Chateau and gardens

Laura was an excellent tour guide. It was nice to be given ear pieces so we could hear what she was saying. She spoke perfect English which was great. Such a beautiful Chateau and gardens. We wish we would have rented a golf cart for the gardens so we could have seen more before it was time to leave.

Wonderful tour with Gabriella!
Rachel_B
, Sep 2021
We had a wonderful tour with Gabriella! She took us directly inside pass the lines and we had headsets so we could continue to hear her as we went through. She did an amazing job of telling us the history behind the palace and describing the lives of the kings and queens. She was very knowledgeable about the art pieces, the architecture, and the history of what occurred in each room. We then had about an hour and a half to two hours in the gardens to explore on our own which was plenty of time although I think you could spend hours here if you wanted to. We couldn’t have imagined a better experience at Versailles! Thank you Gabriella!

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.
