Good excursion, however, too full and for this reason I lost a lot of the details stated from the guide. He tried to explain everything as clearly as possible, but the crowd surrounding it was difficult to hear. The palace did provide clearly the environment during the time. It is worth going and definitely I enjoyed.

I loved it . I wish i were able to spendmore time there and see more with the tour we booked. But with one person in our group that could not walk far so we could not see the gardens

We had a wonderful experience during this trip to Versailles. The tour guide was professional a knowledgeable. This tour is good if you have family members who cannot do a lot of walking. We participated in the afternoon session and Versailles was very crowded and hectic, so keep a close eye on your little ones. I highly recommend this tour.

We had a wonderful visit with a knowledgeable tour guide. The palace and the gardens were something you should make time to see.

Loved this tour! We were taken in a comfortable air conditioned bus out of the city to Versailles then were able to walk right in. We paid the extra for the fountain show and gardens which was well worth the money. The Palace is amazing but VERY crowded. Our only challenge was that English was not our guides first language. Many times she had no idea how to say something in English so she would say never mind or it's not important it was more funny than anything. She was very knowledgeable and had all kinds of stories. Note that this is a 4 hour tour. If you want to spend more time walking around the groves and gardens this is not the tour for you. We thought the time was perfect and we did not need longer.

Our guide was excellent, the tour was very good. Versailles is a bit of a let down after seeing the Catherine Palace in St. Petersburg and the Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna.

Amazing day out. Elizabeth our English speaking guide was very good and we had a small group of 13 so quite easy to hear her. The gardens were magnificent as is the Palace. Well worth doing - visual and cultural overload - so glad we did it.
