Zara was excellent. She was very accommodating and a fount of information. We had very few questions because she was so thorough! We bought the big ticket and we had no waiting, saw the whole complex and had a fabulous lunch. Believe, with the crazy amount of people in Paris right now, going to the front saves you half a day in waiting around. She also paid close attention to the bus groups and kept us ahead of them.

One can not find flaw with the experience of the “Versailles Palace & Marie-Antoinette's Estate Private Guided Tour with Lunch”. Our tour was booked via AMEX Platinum concierge, and we chose the most comprehensive of offerings. This still exceeded our every expectation. Fred was our guide, and the wisdom and passion he promulgated through the tour entirety I feel will not be paralleled in my lifetime. We were picked up from our hotel in Paris by VIP transport while Fred was building the French history along the way. He has intimate knowledge of his country, painting vivid imagery of the beauty of France juxtaposed with the austere times of instability. When we arrived at the palace, we entered through an exclusive entrance allowing us to stay ahead of crowds. Fred was able to answer my unconventional questions about symbology, popular myths, religion at the time, and even the unique origins of the rare woods of the furniture in the palace. At the same time the tour was engaging, with Fred asking thoughtful questions as to what would be next, then furthering the history. Lunch was relaxing and we were encouraged to order anything off of the menu. There were no disappointments in the culinary experience either. We finished the tour in Marie Antoinette’s estate and were still awed by the continued opulence. This tour with Fred was so intricate and comprehensive, that when we later visited the Louvre with a different company and tour guide the next day, it truly demonstrated what we already knew… Fred is an amazing guide that when seeing Paris for a premium tour, is what we perceive the only way to go.
