The most overpriced tour I've ever been on.
Victoria_C

Our guide, Isabelle, was lovely and very knowledgeable. But it very specifically says on the website 'Full day Guided Tour + Garden'. It's NOT a full day guided tour, it was a TWO HOUR guided tour. We had a lot of free time before collection at 5pm. I wish I had booked a few of the tours on offer directly through the Chateau De Versailles website. This tour is massively OVERPRICED for what you get.

Great experience!! The hotel pick up and drop off was so convenient and the palace was absolutely beautiful! I do recommend going earlier because it tends to get crowded.

We highly recommend the priority access guided tour and pickup from Paris. Our driver, Pascal was enthusiastic and passionate about the history and highlights of Paris and we were treated to a mini tour of the city as we headed to Versailles, including an exhilarating turn around the Arc de Triomphe. And our tour guide at Versailles, Isabel was equally enthusiastic and knowledgable about the palace and provided wonderful historical details. We wish we had allowed for more time to discover and experience the gardens. We hope to be back and will do so!

Versailles Guide is Awesome.

The driver was friendly and kind. Loved him! The guide was extremely interesting and entertaining. The 90 min tour seemed long and was a lot of standing around. After about 60 minutes, I was ready to be finished. Again, the stories were interesting and Versailles is special place but everything is so ornate and the rooms all kinda look the same to a neophyte. The food at Angelina’s (restaurant inside Versailles) was EXCELLENT but the service was slow and the atmosphere bland.

Versailles Palace is a must see and this tour was an excellent stress free experience. Our driver Pascal was great! On time, friendly and very knowledgeable. He pointed out key sites along the way and informed us how things would go once we reached Versailles. He handed us off to our tour guide who was equally awesome. The Palace and grounds were beautiful and the history amazing.
